The SAT is a nationally administered, standardized paper-and-pencil examination that is used by colleges to evaluate candidates. It is universally accepted at all colleges in the USA and is also often used to allocate scholarships.
The SAT score is generally considered to be the second-most important factor in determining the success of a college application, after grades in college preparation courses. Everyone benefits from additional points on the SAT exam, which can help you get into the college of your choice, expand your range of program choices, and increase scholarship potential.
Our team of experienced and qualified SAT teachers is available to come to your home, or any location of your choice, to meet all your needs. We can accommodate a preference of male, female, American or British teachers to best fit your expectations and preferences.
As well as the core components of the SAT test (critical reading, math, writing), we also cover SAT Subject Tests, covering over 20 different tests focusing on specific subjects, such as English, history and the social sciences, mathematics, physical sciences, and foreign languages. SAT Subject Tests are designed to measure what you know about specific subjects, rather than assessing your verbal and thinking abilities, like the rest of the SAT test.
All of our lessons are a minimum of 2 hours in length. After getting a successful score on the SAT, we have university counselors who can assist you in choosing the college or university that suits you best.
The SAT is 3 hours and 45 minutes long and tests your critical thinking skills and your ability to analyze and solve problems in math, critical reading, and writing. The 25-minute essay is the first section you see, and the 10-minute multiple-choice writing section is always the last. The other sections can appear in any order. SAT grading is a complicated process. The SAT is graded on a 2400-point scale, with the math, critical reading, and writing sections worth 800 points each. The SAT returns scores on a bell-curve. This means that the median score on each section will always be close to 500, with a decreasing frequency of scores down to 200 and up to 800.
