Weekly quick-hit SAT / PSAT PREP review of challenging test questions! Work up to 10 challenging -level difficulty problems each session. Build speed/accuracy! Students are expected to be familiar with concepts and be focusing on speed. Because these are advanced problems, they also help build skills for ACT. Note: Learner can take multiple sections to increase their exposure-- each section uses different problem sets and problem sets do not repeat for months.

US Grade 8 - 11
Advanced Level
  • After several cycles of these five weekly topics, your learner will be able to say, "I can more easily and quickly solve challenging level PSAT / SAT math problems that involve the following topics: Unconventional Word Problems, Exponential Growth, Decay, and Logrhythms, More Complex Systems of Linear Equations, Two Dimensional Geometry Problems, and Three Dimensional Geometry Problems." Students will be more prepared for challenging level math problems on the PSAT/SAT, and thereby preparing them for the more advance PSAT/SAT prep which is covered in the Kick It course (non-junior edition). New problems sets are being curated constantly. I look for only the most difficult problems so it takes time. Currently we're up to 10 problems sets and those are growing. Students gain from repeating the cycle with the same problems set because it takes over 10 weeks and the problems feel fresh - allowing them to practice what they learn.

I've been certified in the public schools for teaching math in middle and high schools. I received additional certified training for gifted and talented learners. I taught math for sixteen years and I've been a personal SAT tutor for seven years. My students have typically raised their scores between 100 and 300 points.  As a chemical engineer and project management professional in the world of business consulting and information technology consulting, I've completed over five levels of college calculus and applied mathematics and used these math and computing skills throughout my career.  

The students I have taught had varying learning abilities that ranged from one with pronounced learning disabilities to gifted and talented. When it came to PSAT's and SAT's, each of them with impressive improvements in their scores. 

It can be done! Just watch how your learner improves!

The learner progress is assessed by how well the learner participates in the interactions during class.
Grades Offered
Paper, pencil, and a brain ready for thinking fun!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will have far more fun if they have studied linear equations and are comfortable with the terminology and concepts.  This class is not an introductory or concept teaching class.  Its sole purpose is to build speed and students are expected to be familiar enough to participate.  This class is for more experienced students who have advanced into high school math or students who mastered the easy and medium level Kick It! SAT Prep, and are ready to plunge into the "black diamonds" of SAT questions. 
No outside sources are needed.
