1. 1-to-1 private tutoring of any subjects

Incl. SAT, SAT II, ACT and any school subjects; available 1, 1.5 or 2 hours per lesson with flexible schedule.

2. SAT Verbal class (incl. critical reading & writing sections)

Over the course, students will learn both the skills and strategies to succeed on the verbal sections of the test. This course reveiews the verbal skills for high school students planning to take the SAT, one of the key measurement tools that colleges use in making admission and financial aid decisions. Students take pratice tests and learn key information, test-taking strategies, shortcuts and traps to avoid. Students can and should prepare for this grueling four-hour exam by reviewing academic skills and learning test taking strategies. By the end of the session, all students will possess the confidence and know-how to maximize their individual performance on the SAT exam. Students will be required to secure an SAT book “the Official SAT Study Guide”, 2nd edition published by the College Board (ISBN-13: 978-0874478525).

We suggest you to take Course #3 "SAT Math" also if you would like to improve your math score.

The intention of this course is to improve student ability in critical reading and writing across the disciplines. As such, it focuses on how to evaluate the reliability of sources and how to understand propaganda techniques through reading. Students will learn how to read texts from a wide variety of genres, including poetry, essays, plays, novels, nonfictional and fictional short stories, and timely newspaper and magazine articles. In this regard, the course augments the schemata (background knowledge) of students by having them read a steady diet of various texts, including noteworthy magazine and newspaper articles. Also explored is the reading-writing connection and how reading and writing have a symbiotic relationship. Students are prepared for standardized tests, including PSAT/SAT preparation. The class is also designed to teach how to ameliorate student vocabulary, sentence completion questions, and grammar on the PSAT/SAT.
