610              Will – SAT Tutor

Preparing the dreaded SAT exams and not sure what to expect?  That’s the idea; they want you to take the test without knowing how it is written or even how it is graded.  Would they ask you to play basketball without telling you the rules?  (Um, that’s rhetorical, so I’m not going to answer it.)  As a former instructor for a famous test prep organization, Will knows the rules of the game and how to use this knowledge to your advantage.

 

The course will include a review of the subjects you need to know for the test, techniques that allow you to make the most of the exam format, and three practice tests that we will go over in detail, tailoring our classes to address your individual needs. A course like this traditionally runs for over $900 per student and often more for such a small tutorial. The bid will include instruction for up to three students (not including Olivia, who will be taking them too, so you’ll have some company. No more than 4 students total) Group will meet eight times before the May 8th exam. (Location TBD) Practice test books not included.
