There’s only one thing that is more important to us than developing the confidence your student needs to conquer the SAT, and that is your student’s safety.
Recent weeks in the wake of the Cororavirus have been turbulent to say the least. We initially implemented a number of onsite safety measures so that a student could participate in-class or online, but out of an abundance of caution, we have now shifted all classes and one-on-one tutoring to online only.
How are the classes delivered?
All courses are delivered online with high-quality video equipment via Zoom video conferencing. These are highly interactive classes with give-and-take between instructor and student encouraged and expected. Each student is expected to attend class with his/her webcam on to optimize group interaction.
The only difference between our online classes and in-person classes is the delivery method. Students will receive instruction from the same math or reading/writing instructor for the duration of the 32-hour course. This is imperative for consistency in course delivery and for the instructor to be able to comprehensively engage with the student from start to finish.
Here is a portion of a class dedicated to systems of equations:
What happens if the College Board cancels the June SAT?
Your student’s success is our success. As with students from our January and February classes, we commit to offering weekly stay sharp online classes and practice tests in the event the June SAT is canceled. We do not want your student to lose the mental muscle memory that s/he will develop while taking our course. There will be no charge for these stay sharp classes or tests, however, if you feel compelled to make a donation, we will welcome it. We have invested in video camera and streaming equipment to ensure that we can adequately rise to meet the needs of this unprecedented situation.
