SAT Test Prep at MathAltitude

Why Should You Take the SAT?
During the pandemic, dozens of colleges dropped the requirement that applicants take the SAT. Although administrators generally described the move as temporary, most colleges have since stuck to a test-optional policy and many have incorporated a test-flexible option. However, many schools have reinstated the SAT as a requirement. Standardized test scores are a much better predictor of academic success than high school grades. Even if you initially intend to apply to a college that does not require you to take the SAT, you may change your mind. It is in your best interest to take the test on the chance you do decide to apply to another college that requires it.

Taking the Exam Gives Your Application A Boost

Test scores may not be the main factor, but they remain an important part of the process. It could actually be the tie breaking factor if your acceptance status ties with another student.  Colleges also look at the extra initiative you took as a plus if you do decide to take the SAT. A good score can show off your skill sets in reasoning or a particular subject. 

Don't Limit Your Options!

Our SAT Prep courses teach skills and strategies to improve test scores and prepares students for the new digital format.

The Digital SAT uses multistage adaptive testing. This means that the test is designed to dynamically adapt to a student's proficiency, adjusting its difficulty based on performance as students answer questions. Both test segments—reading and writing as well as math—are divided into two distinct modules.

  • 90-min. diagnostic test before the course begins
  • Full-length exit exam and assessment 
  • SAT classes are offered Spring and Summer Sessions
  • SAT Private Tutoring  
  • On-line and In-Person classes

Topics addressed:

  • grasping meaning of passage types;
  • locating relevant information in question types;
  • eliminating answers and spotting incorrect answers;
  • building speed and maintaining accuracy with structured drills;
  • editing for style;
  • editing for logic;
  • standard conventions of English - sentence construction;
  • punctuation;
  • verbs;
  • pronouns;

Diagnostic assessment is a key component of the course.  A mock SAT is administered at the beginning and end of the course, and  students receive a packet detailing their progress across the course, as well as a comprehensive assessment of what skills should be prioritized further.

Online classes, In-Person classes and Private Tutoring are available.
