Almost all students can improve their scores and a huge opportunity is lost without preparation. Why not get your best score? And strong students are not necessarily good test takers. The strategies, tips, and tricks we teach students dramatically improve their scores.
This is not a good strategy as there is simply no reason to take this important test unprepared. Make each time count. Even with super scoring, it's best to prepare for each exam.
That depends upon two factors:
1. What the student is willing to put into the preparation.
2. What their goals are.
Here are results from two of our students:
SAT score increased over 300 points resulting in "free ride" to her dream college.
ACT score of 25 increased to 31.
With the strategies we teach, the sky is the limit.
Basically all ages. Although we tutor pre- first grade students up through older adults in career transitions, our main focus is on middle and high school students.
That depends on the student's schedule. Some students prefer to begin during the summer before their junior year as they like preparing without the added stress of regular school. Others like to prepare in the fall of their junior year as they have demanding sports schedules in the spring. Others begin in January, planning to take the exam in March or May of their junior year.
After each session, homework is given so that students have an opportunity to practice the strategies presented. Although not required, this this gives the student a huge advantage. For best results, we reommmend two hours practice per week during the program.
Although tempting, this is not recommended. Pause for a moment and consider what the colleges are not telling you:
1. More qualified students apply than they can accept.
2. With two qualified applicants and only one spot open, they are going to choose that student who has the best SAT/ACT score and thus stands out among the applicants.
