Prepping for the SAT is like prepping for your sport or academic team.

You need to practice. You need to develop muscle and mental memory.

The SAT is no different.


It is a different kind of “remembering and problem solving” than studying for an A in a math class. Knowing and getting the correct answer is not enough!

You have not only to get it right but get the correct answer, even as you read the question.

SPEED and ACCURACY are key!


That is what this SAT Prep workshop will give you; the development of test-taking speed and accuracy! It will provide you with test-taking strategies, time-management skills, and further knowledge of the math being assessed on the SAT Math portion.


Each session begins with an SAT Math practice, in alignment with the actual SAT Math section, followed by an intensive review with a qualified teacher. With the students, the teacher will review every question, gather insight from the students, and provide a thorough explanation of the correct answer. In addition, the teacher will provide the necessary strategies to optimize performance and outcome on the test.


Students are expected to:


* Purchase and bring the required The Official SAT Study Guide to every session
