OUR IMPACT

This course is aimed at preparing students aspiring to take the SAT test. This course is offered as both a 9 month course and as a 3 month course. The 9 month course runs for 36 weekly sessions of two and a half hours each. The 3 month course runs for 12 weekly sessions of two and a half hours each.

Each week, the instruction time is equally divided between the two separate streams – one for Math, and the other for Verbal & Writing. Students have granular enrolment choice to either of the individual streams or for the entire course. Students will acquire, practice and review competencies that are required to perform well and significantly improve their test scores in Math, Writing, and Verbal – Vocabulary, Grammar, and Critical Reading. Interactive lecture sessions will be complemented by full length practice tests to build up knowledge, accuracy, speed and confidence. Each test will be scored and reviewed.
