Not Just Tips & Tricks

Much of the content on the SAT is never taught in school, and it takes more than a few tips and tricks to raise your score: it takes serious, focused learning. This comprehensive class will prepare students to take the SAT as soon as August 27.

Brain-Based Teaching

What makes my classes different? Brain-based study skills: students will learn how the brain learns. They will use brain-based study strategies to form long-term memories so they don’t forget all those important vocabulary words and equations. Students will also develop academic skills in college-level critical reading, advanced grammar, and math. My SAT classes help students raise their scores, but they learn so much more.

Detailed Explanations

Students will first master SAT-specific techniques and critical thinking skills to raise scores and improve timing, through lectures, interactive group activities, workbook exercises, and highly effective learning software. Students will then immediately use these skills on practice SATs, followed by in-depth answer explanations.

Due to the intensive nature of the course, there is no required homework. However, students may complete optional homework if they want to learn even more.

Free access to SAT Saturdays:

+ 2 hours/week of additional live online SAT English practice

+ 2 hours/week of additional live online SAT Math practice

Please contact me if you are interested in a more intensive SAT program (12, 20, or 40 hours/week) or 1-on-1 tutoring.
