The Scholastic Assessment Test is a globally recognized test used to select prospective candidates for undergraduate admissions to colleges in the United States and other countries abroad. It is generally taken in the 11th or 12th grade.
What are the main topics covered in the SAT?
The SAT has three sections:
This part includes reading comprehension and grammar sentence completions.
This section involves writing a short essay and also multiple-choice questions on identifying errors and correcting grammar usage.
The mathematics portion tests students on basic arithmetic, algebra, geometry, statistics and probability.
How is the SAT scored?
Each section of the SAT (critical reading, mathematics, and writing) is scored on a 200-800 point scale, for a possible maximum total score of 2400. Students also get two ‘sub-scores’ on the writing section.
How many times should you take the SAT?
At least half of all students take the SAT twice, and most students do see an improvement in their scores the second time they take the test. However, students should be cautioned against taking the SAT too many times, since there is no evidence that taking the SAT multiple times significantly changes your score. Instead, students should focus their time on other important components of their college application and on doing well at school.
I offer a 30-hour intensive course, twice a week over 3 months, culminating in a burst of daily sessions the week before the exams. The first month is dedicated to teaching you concepts and techniques and making sure you are able to grasp them perfectly. In the following two months, you will perfect these techniques going through the vast collection of interactive exercises and SAT practice papers that I have painstakingly put together.
PRACTICE MATERIAL FOR SAT
I help students gain access to all the preparatory materials they require before taking the SAT. From my own practice questions, to mock tests, SAT books, and more - I ensure that every student I teach has had the chance to review a wide range of material before attempting the exam.
This is a crash course of three weeks aimed towards students who either wish to improve their score or re-examine the strategies required to ace the verbal section. The crash course generally follows the same structure of the 30-hour course, but condensed into a shorter time frame. It can be taught online or in person.
STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES
If you have a learning disability I will customise the course for you. I will also help and guide you through the SSD process, which can be very confusing for parents and children.
