This class walks the student through one entire test front to back. Recorded video lectures cover strategies for tackling problems of different types as well as general testing strategies like scheduling and study habits. Live class is spent just doing problems and addressing problem areas. This course will cover the standard test and the essay.
SAT testing dates are coming up, and run as follows: October 1, November 5, December 3, January 28, March 10, May 5, and June 2; which, we hope, makes this class a timely offering. We will target the December test, beginning our class on October 13th.
The instructor draws on experience working for test-prep companies and tutoring agencies and helps the students tackle what is in many ways a necessary evil, which arguably is no real measure of intelligence or collegiate success. Hence, rather than promising a “secret strategy” or “instant higher scores,” this class simply recognizes that the unique skill set that standardized test-taking requires can be cultivated through study and practice.
Our goal is to make the student thoroughly familiar with the test, to fill his ‘toolbox’ with all of the available strategies we can, and to set the student on a solid schedule which will ensure he is prepared and performs to the best of his ability.
