I’m almost 30 years old and I still take the SAT at least once a year. I go to a local high school, sit down in a room full of anxious teens, and take a four hour long standardized test. Not only that, I enjoy it! What’s behind my madness? Here are the 4 main reasons why I still take the SAT.Read More …
SAT Mock Test Saturday, July 20th (Details Below)
When it comes to preparing for the SAT, some methods and materials are more effective than others. Some preparation is better than no preparation. Official College Board material is better than 3rd party material. Active practice is better than passive reading or listening. The list goes on. . .
Some > None
Official > Unofficial
Active Practice > Passive Reading/Listening
Anything that makes your preparation more like the actual SAT is going to benefit you on the Saturday morning when you take it for real. Your prep should mirror test day conditions as much as possible. Sometimes students know the material, but don’t do as well as they could because they don’t know how to TAKE the test. They may know the topics, but once you add in strict timing, minimal breaks, a small desk, and the pressure of performing, they buckle. You should treat the SAT like a sport.
I recommend students take the SAT (early, before they need their scores) for practice to calm their nerves and get an idea of what it will be like. The College Board offers the SAT 7 times a year, which provides frequent opportunities for practice. However, sometimes the timing doesn’t work out and you may want some extra practice in between those dates.
Summer is an ideal time to buckle down and focus your efforts on improving your SAT score. With this in mind, I’m offering a full-length SAT mock test on Saturday, July 20th. It will be set up exactly like the actual SAT. It will be an official SAT practice test and will follow all the same timing and break restrictions as the SAT.
Afterwards, you will receive your score and a breakdown of which question areas you need to improve on.

Next Saturday I will be giving a presentation on everything parents need to know about test prep. Afterwards, there will be a Q&A where I will answer questions about all aspects of the test prep process. I’ve been tutoring for over 5 years and have helped many students improve their scores, receive additional scholarships, and get into their dream schools.
- Date: Saturday, March 30th
- Time: 10:30am-11:30am
- Location: Ridgemont Academy 417 – A Gentry St, Spring, TX 77373
Here is a small sample of some of the questions I will answer.
- Which tests to take? When?
- How should students prepare? How can they excel?
- What are the differences between the tests?
- What are colleges looking for?
- How do scores affect acceptance and scholarships?
- Can students take tests more than once?
- What’s a good score?
This is the type of thing that math tutors think is funny. By they way, no one has ever accused me of being a good artist. =)
