About our SAT Classes
Colleges/Universities make wide use of SAT scores in their admissions and scholarship allocation process. A better SAT score directly translates into admission into more prestigious universities, and gives students a leg up for competitive scholarships. Getting your student prepared for taking the SAT is well worth your effort and energy.
There are 3 areas in the SAT: reading, writing and math. Just because a student has good knowledge in English and Math does not mean he/she can achieve a good overall SAT score without SAT training. A good SAT curriculum supplements all fields of knowledge that the SAT will require, giving students surprising results.
Typically, high school juniors and seniors will individually prepare before they take their official SAT test. That does help them enhance their SAT scores. However, our belief is that students should start SAT studies earlier and study more effectively to achieve an optimal score without wasting time perusing irrelevant topics.
Our SAT classes are designed to help students acquire not only the subject knowledge to master the SAT, but also gain crucial SAT taking techniques. Our classes are designed for students in grade 8 and up. In a proper class environment, we are able to push students further and motivate them to study much more extensively than they could alone. Besides studying subject content, sample passages and student essays, we analyze and classify the types of problems that appear on the SAT, and give students the techniques to deal with these. Each student has his/her areas of strength and weakness, and we can identify the areas needing improvement for each student to help him/her enhance his/her SAT taking ability quickly.
The SAT classes are offered in July and August on Weekdays from Monday to Thursday. There will be an experienced teacher and a teaching assistant for each SAT class. The August Classes are more advanced. Each SAT class limits to 15 students. A wait list will be maintained if the registration exceeds 15 students. The school will open additional class if over 10 students are waitlisted for a class.
