The new SAT is here. Our experienced tutors help students ease their fears by giving them authentic guidance. Our students learn useful vocabulary, mathematics, writing, and all of the real secrets so that they can conquer their fears and score higher than they ever have. Each tutoring session will be designed to meet your specific needs. We have all of the necessary preparatory material so that students will feel equipped to study effectively. Most importantly we will be using the ideal study tool—real SATs. Our tutors review both correct and missed questions with the students, explaining each clearly. We believe knowing the reason for a correct answer is as effective as knowing why a question was incorrect. All study programs will be laid out by your selected tutor on a calendar, as well as a day-to-day study schedule. We counsel students on the important, frequently overlooked details and issues in order to best manage their time, like when to use a calculator, prior-night planning, and what to do the morning of test day.
