SAT Writing Test

Dispels “grammar-phobia” by breaking down SAT grammar into five major components. By keeping it simple, and by repeated grammar drills in the five most common categories, students quickly acquire new confidence and mastery of SAT grammar.

SAT Math Test

SAT Essay

By mastering the ability to write clean, powerful sentences, each student gains command of the written word to tackle the SAT Essay. Students look “behind the scenes” at what really matters to essay test-graders, further enhancing their competitive edge on the SAT Essay.

Each course includes one REAL CONDITIONS PRACTICE SAT proctored by Dr. Benthall on a Saturday morning from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM approximately two weeks before the real SAT. This test uses authentic SAT testing materials from the College Board and replicates the real testing environment as closely as possible. Students are then able to diagnose and work through their final “sticking points” before the real SAT.
