I work with students on SAT Reading, SAT Writing & Language and Essay. Students that work with me should expect significant improvement in one session.
For Reading, I teach time management, reading strategies and the appropriate way to search for the correct answers. For W/L, time management is key, as is an understanding as to how to approach this section. Knowledge of grammar (I teach this) is critical to this section, but so is reading.
I work with students and teach them how to decipher the passage for the Essay and how to write a five paragraph essay in the short time frame that will score well.

I've been teaching SAT preparation for 10 years and my students have increased their SAT scores over 500 points from their initial scores.
I create a personalized daily syllabus that caters to each student's individual strengths and weakness, and check in with my students daily to make sure that they are completing their homework assignments and have no questions.
My program is rigorous and demanding, but leads to significantly higher scores very quickly. I do not give my students a chance to slack off or to stop doing their homework assignments because students are required to enter when they have completed their homework assignments, their scores, and their vocabulary words daily through a virtual tracking system that I have created.
I provide a book list including Collegeboard and Kaplan books, though can work with whatever books students already have. I incorporate technology to keep students engaged.
I can't wait to begin!

A standardized test widely used for college admissions, the SAT tests the skills students acquire in high school. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior years of high school, when they begin applying for college admissions. It's never too early to start preparing for one of the most important exams students ever take.
Most guidelines recommend an absolute minimum of 10 hours preparation prior to taking the SAT. Moderate study schedules hover around 40 hours of study time, and super-charged schedules at about 100 hours. The soon you start, the better prepared you'll be. Whether you have 10 or 100 hours to study, you'll get the most out of your time working with a private SAT teacher.
Why Sign Up for SAT Prep Classes?
In order to achieve high scores and competitive college applications, high school students should start preparing as soon as possible. In SAT classes for children, students learn to overcome test anxiety and gain confidence. They'll learn how to take the test, practice working through SAT-like questions, and vastly improve their scores.
In addition, SAT classes for adults can be quite beneficial for non-traditional students applying to undergraduate programs. Although some colleges waive the SAT requirements for non-traditional students, some still require all applicants to take the exams. Even if your college of choice doesn't require the SAT for adult admissions, they might still require it for financial aid qualification. Taking an SAT prep course will get you back into the test-taking mode and help ensure you get a respectable score.

Plus, every private SAT prep course is different. Tutors customize each class to meet each student's needs and preferred learning style. With personalized course content and syllabi, students can focus on the subjects that need the most improvement and work on a timeline scheduled to prepare for a specific test date.
