In this 6-session workshop, Meagan Bojarski & Brian Hurwitz will provide participants with targeted support in all content areas included in the SATs, as well as specialized strategies that can be used as a whole to master time management and maximize scores.
English accounts for two of the three SAT sections and is designed to evaluate your skills in:
- Finding conclusive evidence that may support an author's claim (Command of Evidence)
- Correcting grammatical errors
- Deciphering word usage and demonstrating how verbiage can influence style and tone (Words in Context).
Learning a few tips and tricks will help answer some questions, but designing a guided roadmap will help answer them all. Expert Brian Hurwitz will guide students in deconstructing the English portion of the SAT along with every type of question in these sections in order to establish the best way to attack them.
Mathematics is the longest section in the SATs and one that many students struggle with. Expert Meagan Bojarski will provide students with detailed assistance, guidance, and plenty of practice for solving SAT-style questions in:
- Algebra: More than half of the questions are based on algebraic concepts, so it will be crucial to have a strong foundation in algebra for success on the test.
- Arithmetic, Probability, and Data Analysis: These areas can be some of the hardest for students to master because they rely on memorization and analysis more than traditional math questions; emphasis will be placed on ways to remember critical definitions and strategies to approaching these questions.
- Geometry, Trigonometry, and Testing Strategies: Although these fields make up a small portion of the math section, preparing for them is still an important step in achieving top scores.
