While students sweat and stutter over the Math and Reading sections of the SAT, few seem to even know how to begin to master the essay. While the essay is now an optional part of your score, most colleges will require and read your work on it. In this course, students will learn how to master writing a timed essay through a series of mini-lessons focusing on different aspects of the timed essay as a whole. Whether you are working to increase your writing speed or prepare for the SAT, this course will have you writing—or typing—faster than ever.

Does the maze of activities surrounding the SATs, ACTs, AP classes and college admission, seem like something that it impossible to navigate?  Well, with a little bit of preparation, you can make it through. Rather than stumbling through each year, in this course, the teacher will review all the major concepts necessary to think through before you reach Dec. 29th deadline for Common App. During this course, we will do everything from looking at schools through tools like the College Board Matchmaker to planning your freshman schedule. In-between, we will review all the major steps of the process include selecting your major, personal essay writing, what the common application is and how to fill it out, supplemental applications, a crash course in test-taking, where to find scholarships, and other relevant topics.

The math section of the SAT is hard, right? Wrong. While the math sections on the SAT seem daunting, they can become one of the easiest sections to ace in 10 short weeks. After a series of short lessons focusing in on the most important and likely topics to show up on the math SAT, students will find themselves performing computations, and more importantly, walking into the SAT, more confidently and analytically. This is NOT meant to teach these topics for the first time, but to prepare a student for the specific things that will be asked on the exam.
