The focus of our SAT Subject test tutoring is to get you ready for test day.
We first look at your baseline score (if you don’t have a baseline, we’ll give you a practice test), then we determine the best plan for YOU from now until test day. You and your experienced Prepped and Polished tutor will go over your previous homework assignments, then work on SAT Subject test content (math, science, language, or history), pacing strategies, test-taking strategies, and relevant exercises and drills.
All parents get a detailed session report at the end of each session. When your student goes into the SAT Subject test knowing how to answer each question confidently, then we’ve done our job.
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SAT subject test preparation clinics and courses often underperform due to crowded classrooms, generalized review and outdated test taking strategies.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 students to attend their sessions in our Sudbury and Natick, Massachusetts locations, some choose to utilize our video-conferencing technology to get their studying in from the comfort of their home or anywhere else they 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.
