SAT Test Preparation
Our one-on-one, custom-designed SAT programs are rigorous, thorough, and tailor-fit to meet the individual student’s needs. We first get a baseline score, then design a plan of attack to ensure the student is continuously working on problem areas, learning key strategies, and doing drills, exercises, and homework assignments to ensure content mastery. Each student gets custom-designed homework assignments consisting of practice test sections, relevant practice drills, and vocabulary. After each session, the parent will get a detailed session report. Your tutor will be Prepped and TrainedSM certified. Our tutors are knowledgeable, reliable, relatable, motivational, and communicate effectively with both student and parents.
Our small group classes are a more affordable option that still provides students with content, test-taking strategies, pacing, drills, and homework assignments. We first focus on math, critical reading, and writing foundations, then shift to test-taking strategies for all components of the test. If you only need a tune-up, you can jump in at any time.
Though high-school students often cringe at the thought of taking yet another standardized test, SAT subject tests can produce smiles when they result in acceptance letters from elite universities. Strong scores on SAT subject tests in Literature, U.S. History, World History, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Foreign Language are essential for your child to stand out to admissions officers at top universities amongst the host of other qualified applicants. These tests are multiple choice and usually correspond with relevant studying for AP exams for the same subjects. As such, taking SAT subject tests can be an effective way to ‘kill two birds with one stone’ that is not overly strenuous. At Prepped and Polished we help your child capitalize on this unique academic opportunity through building their mastery of the subject and test taking confidence with first-hand experience and comprehensive targeted review.
When your child first begins working with our team at Prepped and Polished, they will take an initial practice SAT subject test. This provides them with a feel for what to expect and it provides us with sound data to tailor our schedule of review specifically to your student. Other SAT subject test preparation clinics and courses often underperform due to crowded classrooms, generalized review and outdated test taking strategies. Because our tutoring sessions are held one-on-one, we can provide the undivided attention and individualized teaching style your student needs to produce optimum results on test day.
To further instill confidence in our students, our tutors offer personal insight into test taking, afforded by their expansive professional experience and impressive academic accolades (many with master’s and doctorate degrees). We’ll also reveal test taking secrets to reduce stress and increase test scores.
At Prepped and Polished, we provide tutoring services that “Educate. Empower. Evolve.” While we invite our local students to attend their sessions in our Wellesley, Natick or Sudbury, Massachusetts locations, students throughout the United States and around the world are able to work with our SAT tutors through our video-conferencing technology to get your tutoring in from the comfort of your home or anywhere else you choose. Through modern technology, we are able to provide premier SAT subject test preparation to your student no matter what part of the world you live in. Additionally, your child will have access to our depth of digital resources including blog posts, podcasts and YouTube videos on SAT subject tests for even more valuable information.
