SAT Test Prep


 

The SAT is a multiple choice standardized test which is designed to measure the student's reasoning ability.  It doesn't measure the student's intelligence!  Students can increase their SAT score by preparing for the test in just 5 weeks!

 

Students learn test-taking skills and techniques from our teachers that will help them tackle the SAT with confidence.  The teachers will refresh their memory of the subjects tested so they can turn their new found confidence to reach their testing goals into reality.  Students will be given practice exams in test-taking conditions to build up their speed and endurance.  

 

Please note:  Each student will be responsible for providing his/her own book.  Jamie thinks that students can buy their books from a large book retailer for a lesser price than she can purchase books for resale thus saving the students' money.  Students will be notified by email as to which book to purchase once they are enrolled in a test prep course.


Online Test Prep 

Test preparation should not be a "one size fits all" proposition.  Our online test prep course is an adaptive learning platform that diagnoses each student's individual strengths and weaknesses and creates a personalized study plan based on their needs and timelines.  As students progress through the course, the program adapts to them.
