We will discuss preparation and testing strategies drawn from major print guides (Peterson's, McGraw-Hill, Princeton Review, College Board, etc.). We will focus on exercises and discussions that improve student scores by addressing such issues as maximizing time, understanding what you've read, and how to approach unfamiliar vocabulary. Each class will include both direct instruction and student feedback as we discuss strategies and review exercises. Students do not need any prior...
Students will learn to use their testing time more efficiently; make better, more informed answer choices; approach reading passages optimally; read (and proofread) as an editor; and understand the role of an argument in a persuasive essay. Specifically, students will learn about: punctuation, clear and concise writing, sentence structure, pronoun agreement, parallelism, and syntax. We will also discuss the unity, organization, and cohesiveness of a written piece; this will help students answer questions about Reading passages, but will also help students on the English section and in composing the optional essay. Finally, we'll discuss dealing with unfamiliar vocabulary words, expanding working vocabulary, determining the main idea of a passage, and how to address sequence, inference, character relationship, context-dependent vocabulary, and rhetoric questions.
I have nearly 20 years of experience teaching high school Language Arts classes, as well as nearly 10 years of experience tutoring students in test prep and study skills. I have taught on the college level and am very familiar with the admissions process.
Students will work individually on exercises and practice sections from SAT prep resources. Students should expect 2-3 hours of homework each week.
Materials will be provided to students prior to the first meeting.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Student progress will be monitored through performance of practice work and exercises, as well as discussions and participation in class.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
