Learning Objectives:

We take a holistic approach to SAT test prep training. Our goal is to maximize a student’s chances of scoring high in the exam.

Our US-based trainers are highly experienced in helping students achieve top scores and have mentored many to get admitted to the leading schools or universities throughout the U.S.

Our Approach:

Following is our structured approach to training a student for SAT:

  1. Introduce SAT to our students. Explain the dynamics, structures and format. We take the fear of SAT away during the first session. (What, Why, How, Structure and Format)
  2. Our students take practice tests and our tutors grade the test and all its sub-scores. Grade Practice Test and all its sub-scores. This gives our tutors and students a roadmap on where to focus and identify areas where most improvement is needed.
  3. Practice using structured exam taking methods and review problems that belong to sub scores missed during practice exams. Our tutors ensure each student has enough practice until they become proficient.
  4. Our tutors focus on content based questions by creating special lessons and practicing with students until they are comfortable with the topics.
  5. Our tutors will work closely with each student to ensure students are prepared and are equipped to score high in the exams. Our students, with the training and practices they go through typically score in the 90-95th percentile.
