Colleges rely heavily on SAT scores when they evaluate your child’s application. The exam results tell college admissions departments if your student is ready for the rigors of college level courses. Colleges and scholarship committees also use SAT results when awarding scholarship money.
The SAT is offered throughout the school year. Depending on your child’s college admission plans, he or she will most likely take the test at the end of his or her junior year. Doing well the first time is important. Many students take the test twice, but research shows that taking the test multiple times doesn’t improve the score.
That’s why Louisville SAT Prep Courses, at Kotey Tutoring, are so important.
We provide personalized instruction that fits your child’s academic needs and learning style. As part of the SAT preparation process, we administer a practice test. We use the results to influence future tutoring sessions. For example, if your student runs out of time during the practice exam or scores low on one section of the exam, we focus our tutoring efforts in that area.
To prepare for the exam, we help your student brush up on several skills.
- Reading – Your student will read passages, answer questions and complete sentences.
- Writing – After writing a short essay, your child will answer multiple choice grammar questions and find errors.
- Math – This portion of the exam deals with arithmetic operations. Your student will answer questions about algebra, geometry, probability and statistics.
