Standardized Test Preparation courses

SAT

The SAT is an exam designed to analyze a student’s problem solving skills and to measures their literacy, numeracy, and writing skills that are needed for academic success in college. In addition to the high school grade point average, most colleges will require a score on this exam in order to apply and attend the school. This exam is to help the admission officers view and compare students in a wide range of schools from public, private, and home school. The SAT is common for students in the West Coast or interested in applying into the school in the region.

The SAT Exam will have the following sections:

Critical Reading

The Critical Reading is a three score section, two 25-minute sections and one 20 minute section. There are two types of questions on the critical reading portion of the SAT: sentence completion question and reading comprehension questions. Students will be tested on their knowledge and understanding of sentence structures and vocabulary.

Writing

The writing portion of the exam will consist of multiple choice questions and a brief essay, and the essay portion will be 30% and the multiple choice will be 70% towards the total score. The multiple choice will include error identification questions, sentence improvement questions, and paragraph improvement questions.

SAT Math

SAT I Math class is designed to establish the key techniques and core concepts required for the real SAT tests. Our experience tells us that most of the SAT test takers commonly lack certain skills, such as word problem analysis techniques. Therefore, we developed a special technique “information box” to help students analyze word problems. Additionally , we review all the math topics covered in SAT I Math chapter by chapter, ensuring students possess enough math background before the real test.

Homework is given every meeting. Students are expected to complete the assignments before the next meeting.

Homework, quizzes, and mock tests are given every week in order to track the progress of the students learning as well as to strengthen and apply the skills the student has learned in class. The results of these assessments will be reported to the parent weekly through email, to allow both the parent and student to know their students\'s weaknessess are reinforce them.
