The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets you show colleges what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge. It tests your knowledge of reading, writing and math — subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms.

SAT 2016 is scored on a scale of 200-1600 and is typically taken by high school juniors and seniors. The test is administered several times a year.

Our Methods of Teaching SAT

With years of experience in preparing students for SAT, we have perfected the methods for preparing students. Our trademark methods include preparation of an individual time-table for each student based on his or her score, one-on-one preparation followed up with weekly testing, and full length test practice at the end of the preparation schedule.

Our tutors are equipped with the most modern and student-friendly techniques of teaching Mathematics and English. The class environment is conducive to effective learning where students learn to interact with each other and benefit from each other. All students starting the course do a full SAT test. Based on this Diagnostic Test, we develop a study program, which is different for every student. Their weighted scores determine the time to be given to each study module. Thus a student scoring high on the Mathematics section will have to spend little time in attaining a score of, say, 750+. However, if his Verbal diagnostic score was a low 330, his program will allow more than twice as much time on the Verbal modules.

We do not believe that one set of books is enough – rather, we use a variety of material including ones we have developed over numerous years and classes in order to target you weak areas and give you the best possible preparation.
