SAT Prep - Math

For many students, the math portion is the biggest challenge on the SAT. Now you can choose to specifically focus on math SAT prep!
Your student will receive a customized curriculum plan on your schedule developed exclusively for them.  No waiting for other students to get questions answered and devoting hours of time on lengthy lesson days.  
SAT for Competitive Schools:  More than ever, the SAT will be a differentiating factor in admissions, especially at test-optional schools because there has been a tremendous increase of applicants to competitive schools. When college admissions officers see that your student not only has the GPA and resume of activities and community service, but also a high SAT score, it significantly improves their chances of admission.

Study and Organizational Skills Training

 Whether your student is in 3rd grade or 12th grade, their study and organizational skills have a direct impact on their confidence and success at school.  If your student is struggling with note-taking, time management, and organization, this is the hope and help you've been seeking!
Flexible Formats:  Private training or “summer camp”
Summer Camp: Students in 3-5 grade are placed in a 4-person group (Social Distance friendly) atmosphere, where they will use a variety of learning modalities to appeal to their specific styles (Auditory, visual, and kinesthetic).
Unlike summer camps that mix all fun with little learning, this camp will engage your student, WHILE giving them expert professional instruction!)
Private training provides a higher level of diagnosing your student's specific points of struggle and customizes strategies that  lead to monumental improvements.
