Getting a 1600 on the SAT (and a 36 on the ACT) Workshop

In this twice-a-week class, you will learn every trick to get the highest score on the SAT and ACT. We will go through mock tests on the English and Math sections from the simplest to the most advanced questions that are harder than the actual test.

Description

Class Experience

Students will be taught to catch their mistakes on the SAT/ACT exam and improve their scores at least 100-400 points. They will learn  how to improve their speed on the test. If requested, we will also learn and practice SAT II Subject tests. These have been outmoded by the college board, but the skills are still useful for students. I will provide all tips necessary to get a perfect score, but it is up to the student to earn this. The difference between a 1400 and a 1600 (or a 28 and a 36 on the ACT) is often just four or five trivial mistakes on a few questions. Higher scores are to be expected but a 1600 cannot be guaranteed. The goal is to make the students think for themselves and use their own aptitude to find the right answers as fast as possible. 
I have taught SAT/ACT/GRE test prep for 17 years and am very experienced.
Homework is optional. I give every student at least one mock SAT to practice with. I also give weekly homework with 90-120 questions for the student to practice with upon request. Upon request, I give the students more tests so they can practice with as much test material they think necessary. Just contact me. Each question should take 1 minute to solve and should be done at one's own pace. Answers are provided in the homework. I suggest people spend 30 minutes of practice at a time with the homework each day. Learners will do the homework in order to practice and ask questions for review.
 5 files available upon enrollment
Pencil, paper, Calculator (though we won't use it much), Internet Access, a Microphone, and Adobe Reader or some program to open PDFs. MICROPHONES ARE A MUST in this class. I cannot interact properly with your child and diagnose what they need unless I can speak with them. Kids who talk and participate do best in this class. The lesson one videos, which are an additional resource if the student finds the class a little difficult, are on YouTube.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students can practice with a mock SAT test I provide on request. They should see if there's an improvement. Let me know where any shortcomings are so we can address them as a class.
4 hours per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There should not be inappropriate content in the readings for the SAT and ACT as they have been chosen by the College Board and ETS Testing. Any reading in this class could potentially be on the SAT.
