About The Course

The SAT Prep Course consists of a small group of 5-15 students and includes a diagnostic test, practice tests, and customized instruction tailored to the specific needs of the students within that group.

In this 20 hour course, we help students to:

  • Review grammar, usage, and mechanics to better prepare for the evidence-based reading and writing
  • Gain confidence through insights and practice, which includes how to manage time better, overcome test anxiety, and understand how scoring is conducted
  • Distinguish the difference between school exams and standardized tests
  • Learn how to accurately solve math problems using shortcuts and other tips to manage time efficiently during the exam

The classwork and homework assignments provided will help students to master and enhance their overall performance on all sections of the SAT. We provide a special focus on preparing students to excel in reading comprehension, understanding vocabulary in context, and solving math problems using strategies and shortcuts.

There are no makeup sessions with this course, as a recording of each session will be available by request.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the structure of the online course?

Prior to the course beginning, students take a diagnostic SAT test from their workbook which they will purchase for the course (information about this will be sent to you after registering). The first few classes will consist of reviewing the diagnostic test to go over and explain problems that the students missed. Following the first few classes, the teacher will work through important math and ELA concepts as they relate to the SAT. At the end of each class, students will be given homework to complete from their workbook. This homework will be reviewed in the next class.

Students may ask questions through the chat at any time during the class or by using the microphone after raising their hand and being called upon. Students will be on mute during instruction to maintain an orderly, quiet virtual classroom.

Does my child need to be on camera to participate?

Yes, this is so we can make sure that your child is engaged during each session.

Will breaks be scheduled throughout each session?

Yes, 1 or 2 five-minute breaks will be taken as needed.

How do I access my tutoring session?

Students will be sent a link to their virtual platform prior to the first class.

What equipment or technology will students need?

We recommend a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer with a stable internet connection, working microphone and webcam, and the ability to screen share. Further, a writing tablet or stylus is recommended, but not required, to easily write on the virtual whiteboard.

A smartphone is not recommended for group tutoring sessions.

Is an internet connection needed?

Yes, and it should be stable. Limit the number of devices in use during the session to optimize connectivity. For example, make sure other household members are not playing video games during your child's tutoring session.

Do any apps have to be download?

Yes. The Zoom app (https://zoom.us), which is free, must be downloaded either from Zoom or the Google or Apple stores.

We will also utilize supplementary apps that do not need to be downloaded but you will be granted access by a link prior to the session.

What other information do we need to know?

The student will need to purchase a workbook. We will send a link to purchase after course registration is completed.
