SAT Prep Classes

The SAT I Reasoning Test is widely required by colleges and universities to assess an applicant's potential for success. In today's competitive atmosphere, you should not go into this test unprepared.

The goal of the course is to prepare you for SAT by reducing your anxiety, increasing confidence in your abilities, and arming you with practical and proven strategies. The SAT is a standardized test that becomes easier and more predictable with practice, preparation, and keen strategy. You will get to know the test from top to bottom, how it is scored, sectioned, timed, and designed. The focus will be on strategies that work, and you will get the chance to practice these strategies.

Price: $150

Registration closes one week before classes start.

GRE Prep Classes

Our GRE prep course offers a comprehensive introduction to the Graduate Record Examinations. It provides an overview of the exam, covering its overall structure, all of the types of questions that students will encounter, the testing environment, and available tools. A substantial portion of the course is dedicated to providing students with means for maximizing their GRE scores. These include focusing on the content that the students will need to know (e.g., geometric properties, argument analysis), methods for studying efficiently, and a variety of techniques that will help test-takers to address questions that they might not be able to answer directly (e.g., process of elimination). Each of the various techniques is explained and reinforced by use in example.

For all GRE classes: Please purchase and bring to class Cracking the GRE with 4 Practice Tests, 2019 Edition. Optional to purchase 6 full-length practice test edition.

Additional Materials: calculator (simple four function is fine, you don't need anything fancy, the one on your phone will work!), pen/pencil, scratch paper to make notes and work out problems.
