A workshop consists of four two-hour classes in either English or math. In that workshop, different SAT and ACT topics are covered each of the four nights. If a student takes both Math and English workshops, the student will get 16 hours of instruction and practice.
In many test preparation courses there is too much focus on "beating the test." Our workshops are content and strategy focused. We do our best to ensure that our students understand the actual content on which they will be tested. We cover test strategy as part of the workshops, but include it as part of the content instruction.
Yes. The changes to the SAT have made it very similar in content and delivery to the ACT. Because content instruction is our focus, this allows us to prepare students for both tests. Each test will have a unique format that is easily explained to the students. The test-taking strategies we teach can be applied to both exams.
Yes. We offer these services as our schedules allow. You can contact us directly to find out if we currently have any availability.
No. We have set up the workshops so that students who only need help to prepare for one subject do not have to attend classes and pay for the subject they do not need. The large majority of our students take the workshops for both subjects, but we want you to choose what works best for you.
Many colleges and universities still require SAT and ACT scores for admission. When schools say that scores are "optional" this means that they will be considered if submitted and can add another positive factor to a student's application. Also, many financial aid opportunities are dependent on SAT or ACT scores.
