A question most parents and students ask is: “What is the better exam to take: the ACT or the SAT?” This unconventional, highly interactive, and fast paced workshop is designed to answer that very question. It is designed for the college-bound student intending to face the rigors of either the SAT or ACT Exam, or both. By learning the differences and similarities, the structures and nuances, as well as the latest changes between these two exams, the student would be able to determine how effectively they can navigate in each test then appropriately decide which exam best suits their college-application needs.
Firstly, the SAT component, will be taken during the first half of the semester. Approximately six weeks of reviewing the SAT component, the student will have successfully completed four, timed, full practice exams. Secondly, the ACT component, will be taken during the second half of the semester. Much like the first half of the course, approximately seven weeks of reviewing the ACT component, the student is expected to have successfully completed four, timed, full practice exams. Through systematic, methodical correction, as well as calculated repetition, the student will be able to determine their specific learning-gaps and intentionally reduce common errors throughout parts of their timed practice tests. With immersion as the primary approach of this course, the student will be trained in strategies and content and be able to apply their personal best score onto any one of these two exams that they intend to take.
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.
