Simulated SAT Exams
Our program features simulated exams, with actual SAT I content, proctored and administered under true timed test conditions. Scores are analyzed to diagnose each student’s strengths and weaknesses. Practice tests to do at home also are provided.
We have state-certified Reading Specialists as teachers, not college students. Our math teachers are also experts in both content and SAT test strategies, embracing time management, handling test anxiety and point scoring guidelines. All are trained in the Estelle Finkel method of SAT test strategies and solutions. They teach you to identify the questions that are best for you to answer in the limited time you have.
Classes are usually limited to 5-to-15 students. There is a high degree of individualized instruction. Class instruction and dates are as scheduled.
