Small Group instruction encourages students to engage in learning while provides opportunity to focus on individual students.

Academics - Students learn to work out Math problems, understand meaning of vocabulary words, actively read the critical reading passages, remember grammar rules, and write the essay. There is no substitute for real learning and tips and tricks to increase score come after core knowledge.

Strategy - Once students know the subject, we go over the approach to the test, explaining the tips and tricks that are necessary to increase score.

Evaluation - We evaluate students continuously through quizzes, asking questions, small tests, and full length practice tests. Essays are evaluated on point of view, support, examples, transition, and clarity of writing.

Practice


Practice is essential to reinforce the instruction and understand the topic.

Students practice a Full length SAT/ACT test every week during summer session and every alternate week during Fall and Winter sessions. The tests are proctored, timed, and mimic the actual SAT. During fall and winter sessions students can request to take the tests outside the center based on their schedules.

The tests are graded, scored, reported and recorded to observe progress in each of the sections. This enables us as well as the student to pinpoint areas that need strengthening and additional focus. The score is converted to the SAT score for benchmarking.

In addition, homework is assigned
for Vocabulary, Math, and Reading. Students are expected to complete the work on time.

For students who want more challenge, we offer differentiated work so they can hone their specific skills. These assignments are targeted at high achievers.

Guidance


Students and Parents are encouraged to ask questions during and after the SAT/ACT Classes about best time to take the test, the importance of PSAT/NMSQT®, advantages of starting preparation early, from Middle School, and beyond to college applications.
