We believe it is extremely important that our instructors be experts at the tests they teach, possessing a mastery in all of the test's sections. The SAT is a 10-section test that switches test content roughly every twenty minutes. A student must be versatile, consistently employing a host of strategies for the duration of the test. Our instructors are seasoned pros. They can answer any questions a student may have on any section of the test. If students must be versatile, so should their instructors.
A student who is scoring a 550 on the SAT Critical Reading material can take practice tests until they are blue in the face - they will consistently repeat that score (it is a standardized test, after all). If the student wants a particular score, he or she needs to develop a level of mastery on material that is not quite SAT caliber, and slowly work their way up to that level. But if a student can accomplish this, and go beyond, a gain in score will not be based on sorcery but actual growth in the student's test knowledge. That test knowledge does not go away. It is learned. When the student decides to take the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, or MCAT after college, he or she can draw from their past test prep, and set out to post another competitive score.
Our work is to improve a student's testing ability. If our student is already comfortable with the SAT content, we take them beyond it: we design our own test questions and prepare for even more challenging test materials from other standardized tests. Our goal is to create a well-rounded test taker, one who sees not a daunting task, but a test that works for them, rather than against them.
Our instructors recommend a course of study for the SAT that varies in length, based on a number of factors: PSAT scores vs. desired SAT scores, confidence issues, learning and attention issues, and scheduling conflicts. Contact us today; we can answer any and all questions you may have.
