Our Approach to SAT Test Prep
When studying alongside our tutors for 1-on-1 SAT test preparation, the pair creates a flexible and fluid study plan, focusing on the student’s strengths to supplement their areas of improvement. Our SAT tutors present their proven methods and help students create the best strategy that works for their needs. In addition, the pair studies the body of the test- from the backbone of the language to the multiple choice, reasoning, and elimination.
In order to provide a customized experience, we start off by asking the following questions:
1What year are you in high school?
2Are you just now beginning your SAT test prep?
3Have you taken the SAT before?
4How did you score on each section?
5Are you struggling with content?
6Are you struggling with strategy?
7What prep materials are you using?
8What is your schedule like, and what days/times are you available to work with a tutor?
9Have you registered for an upcoming SAT test date?
10How soon would you like to begin?
The SAT tests the student’s problem solving abilities and literacy, as a determinant for whether a student is prepared for college. Your scores on the SAT can be a deciding factor as to whether or not you get accepted to your dream college. Do not let the SAT test be a hurdle to your undergraduate acceptances! Every student has the ability to succeed, and our personalized SAT test prep can help students based on their study habits. At Tutor the People, our tutors instill the core principles in writing, math and critical reading which form the blueprint for each student’s academic career.
We also offer SAT group tutoring, which focuses on individual needs, while applying each lesson to the group as a whole. It is our mission to provide the best SAT preparation.
