Top universities weigh the SAT’s heavily when determining a student’s admission. Admission officers typically look at the students class rank, SAT scores, grades and courses, in addition to the applicant’s acts of citizenship. Since the SAT’s are weighted so heavily, we recommend that students of all abilities take part in SAT prep.
What’s on the SAT’s and how can SAT prep help?
The SAT’s are comprised of three sections-critical reading, math and writing. In the critical reading section, students are given sentence completion and passage based questions to test their reading comprehension and vocabulary skills. The math section tests the student’s knowledge on data analysis, probability, geometry, statistics, algebraic functions, and numbers and operations. The last section, writing, asks the student to write a personal essay explaining their point-of-view on a quote or passage.
The SAT’s can be very overwhelming and a huge source of stress for your child. What better way to alleviate their stress then enlisting a private SAT tutor? A huge part of being a successful on the SAT’s is proper test preparation and sound test taking strategies. For example, our SAT tutors will show your child how to perform short-cuts on certain questions, or when to skip a question rather than guess. With a little preparation and hard work, anyone can achieve high scores on their SAT’s and get in to the college of their dreams!
