SAT I Preparation

Objective

We provide our students with the most superior and in-depth SAT preparatory course, available. We aim to improve the score of each student by at least 200-250 points, using the most advanced and accomplished techniques, strategies, and practice methods available. Furthermore, we believe in providing each student with individual attention and support, thus, our class size is limited. We utilize carefully selected course materials, which we believe are comprehensive and effective. In the past, our students have responded positively to our teaching methods, and have shown significant improvement in their scores.

Instructors

Our teaching team is composed of the most outstanding academic achievers. They have attended the most prestigious universities in the world and excelled in their academic fields. More importantly, however, they have all mastered the SAT I test, in their capacity as students and teachers. In addition, the instructors are well versed in our teaching methods and are best placed to implement our techniques and strategies, as they have the necessary teaching experience. Furthermore, they are capable of communicating with students in the most translucent, lucid and unambiguous manner.

Course Structure

We offer students 12 and 8 week courses. The length of each course covers all the requisite material but varies in the number of practice SAT I tests a student can undertake with us. We believe that the numbers of hours that we must dedicate for teaching the course material varies from 30-50 hours, depending on the capabilities of the students in each group. Thus, students must be prepared to undertake extra prep classes in addition to the normal classes.
