“Thank you so much. I had no idea what to do for my Common App or supplements and kept writing drafts that I wasn’t happy with. You helped me understand what admissions officers look for when they read students’ personal statements and how I had a unique story to tell. I’m positive my essays helped me get into Brown, and I feel much more confident in my writing ability now than I did before. Thank you!”
Um, we’re an SAT prep company. We don’t really offer financial advice. However, before considering any financial instruments, carefully evaluate each investment’s merits and risks, including risk of loss. Past performance is not necessarily a predictor of future performance. In other words—don’t get too attached to your kidneys or first-born
That’s okay! We realize parents of juniors have a lot on their minds these days.
No, no special equipment whatsoever. To participate, students simply need a laptop, desktop, or tablet.
We may lose our business license for admitting this, but we don’t believe we have a patent on SAT prep. We’re quite proud of our track record and approach, but as with all fields, there are several reputable programs and providers. That said, there are a few compelling reasons that make our SAT Boot Camp uniquely poised to help students succeed. First, we are the only prep company whose instructors take the actual SAT multiple times per year to deepen our expertise. In addition, we hire actual SAT writers—the people who write the verbal and math questions that appear on every test—to develop curriculum for us and share little-known exam secrets, including the way the SAT’s notorious trap answers are constructed. And finally: we’re not boring! We realize that most students would rather clean their room or watch C-SPAN than take an SAT prep course, so we strive to make our Boot Camp as engaging and entertaining as possible. Most students emerge from our course feeling pleasantly surprised. Check out our Nice Things Actual Teenagers Have Said About Us testimonials section to see how high school students feel about our program!
Absolutely! We strongly encourage participation and create a welcoming, supportive class environment from the outset. Students simply type their questions and send them to us via a chat box. All questions are private, so students can feel secure asking anything they would like without having to feel in any way self-conscious.
Both. For example, when we cover tricky SAT algebra problems, we make sure students understand the math concepts underlying those problems, and then we teach them shortcuts and strategies, including tips for avoiding sneaky trap answers.
We have a wide range of students who participate in our SAT Boot Camp, from students looking for an on-ramp to the prep process to students looking for that final edge right before the big test.
We calculate score improvement data based on students’ starting scores from official exams (shared with us) and students’ official SAT scores after they have completed our Boot Camp (also shared with us). We then segment that data according to starting score ranges, because a student starting at, say, a 1450 can’t improve more than 150 points.
Students whose starting scores range from 1000 to 1150, inclusive, improve an average of 240 points.
Students whose starting scores range from 1160 to 1300, inclusive, improve an average of 170 points.
Students whose starting scores range from 1310 to 1450, inclusive, improve an average of 130 points.
And students whose starting scores range from 1450 to 1550, inclusive, improve an average of 80 points.
The majority of students who participate in our SAT Boot Camp intend to take the SAT or PSAT sometime within the next year, if not the next few months. Although the majority of our participants are in 10th, 11th, and 12th grade, we do have a substantial number of 9th graders who participate, primarily students looking for an on-ramp to the overall test prep process and highly- academic students who will likely take the SAT well before junior year.
We cover every square inch of the SAT, from strategies for tackling lengthy, yawn-inducing reading passages to shortcuts for math problems that stump the vast majority of test-takers.
We don’t prorate the tuition for our Boot Camps. However, even if your student only attends one of the two days, he or she will still benefit, in large part because students can always access the live recordings of the entire course after the Boot Camp has ended.
Great! We look forward to having her participate and to your feedback after the course.
Um, we’re an SAT prep company, not a team of dermatologists. But we recommend resisting dire self-diagnoses and typing symptoms into WebMD.
