The SAT English course is designed to optimize one’s performance on the verbal subsets of both the SAT and ACT. Though these tests are largely the same, there are key distinctions between them—distinctions that compliment different types of students and test takers. This course offers the opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with both tests so that they can determine which would best reflect them on the college application. To this end, students familiarize themselves with the ins and outs of each test, situating lessons in reading strategies and grammar in the context of the SAT/ACT’s standardized question and answer formats. We also focus on time management skills through a series of timed practice drills. Students take a mock SAT and ACT at the end of the course, and spend the last class reviewing their scores on each test.
