Have you ever wondered about the PSAT/NMSQT Exam and the National Merit Scholarship Program? Did you know that the “NMSP gives out approximatelly$50 million in scholarships each year, and some colleges provide lowered — or even free — tuition for recognized students*”? Do you want your child to try and qualify for recognition? Or do you just want to see if your student should later take SAT Exam?
Look no further! This unconventional, highly interactive, and fast-paced workshop is designed for the ambitious (or merely curious) high school student who intends to qualify for the PSAT/NMSQT scholarship. Eventually, the student is also situated to face the rigors of the December 2019, SAT Exam. By learning (and going through) the massive changes and improvements in these two distinctly similar standardized tests, as well as becoming familiar with their structure and format, the student would be able to determine how effectively they can navigate each exam.
With immersion as the primary approach of this course, each student shall receive training in strategies and content. Through systematic, methodical correction, and calculated repetition, they shall be able to determine their specific learning-gaps and intentionally reduce common errors throughout parts of their timed practice tests. As the semester unfolds, each student shall intuitively acquire effective test-taking skills, time-management methods, and better study habits. More than this, with study-support groups as the secondary approach of this course, the student shall experience a considerable degree of accountability as they participate in active units of rotating teams. If your student is searching for academic recognition, scholarship, and valuable tools for college admission, this workshop provides them with the first steps.

Hi Mrs. V! The SAT went very well today. I did not have much trouble with the essay and I got done in time for everything! I was surprised about the fact that I finished early for both math sections and the grammar, and I barely finished in time for the reading and the essay. Thank you so much for all you have thought me! I used some of the strategies you taught me like the one with the math for saving the hardest ones to do last, annotating for the reading (and of course spreeding), and not reading everything for the grammar. I followed your outline for the essay and everything turned out great! I will let you know what my score is as soon as I get it! You are one of the best teachers I have ever had!
The May 5th, 2018 SAT score I received was 1360. I am very happy because that was almost my SAT superscore and, more importantly, was much better than my first SAT and PSAT score (both of them were 1240). I chose to take the SAT one last time on June 2nd, after I saw my 1360 score, because my dream school offers big scholarships if you get a 1400, and that’s only 40 points away. But I don’t know how I did on the last one yet 🙁 Thank you for reminding me and good luck with your future classes –I am honored we were your online guinea pigs, haha! God bless, Caroline
I loved the interaction between the teacher and the students. The atmosphere in the classroom was amazing and you could ask as many questions as you liked. I also loved the support and help you received from the teacher, and even the students.
Mrs. V is very attentive to the students and provides honest, helpful feedback to insure they do their best.
