SAT/PSAT Boot Camp
[13h Instruction + Q&A, Paid]
IMPORTANT: Students who have attended the 4-hour SAT/PSAT Crash Course will benefit from attending this SAT/PSAT Boot Camp. The crash course is not a prerequisite for the boot camp: your student may attend the boot camp without having attended the crash course. In addition to in-depth treatment of SAT/PSAT Writing grammar and rhetorical rules (3h 45m), Math theory (5h 30m), and Reading techniques and strategy (2h 15m), the SAT/PSAT boot camp provides valuable course materials to every attendee.

Content/Complexity/Pace: For each of the 4 SAT sections, the boot camp will first review the necessary theory and strategies in detail and then work out and discuss a number of official SAT questions, from simple to complex, in a timed setting. This is a fast-paced, rigorous, intensive, and immersive boot camp.
Important Notes: Scores will not improve merely because a student attends the boot camp. Students are expected to practice what they have learned, thoroughly memorize the cheat sheets, complete the assigned homework, and attempt practice tests under timed conditions to see a score improvement. Success on the test is entirely about hard work. The boot camp gives students and parents the tools and the glide path to the target score, but it is the student's focused practice and relentless work that will cause the ascent to the target score. Parents are strongly encouraged to have a conversation about the student's commitment to the work involved and their own expectations before registering for the boot camp. While students who do the assigned work can benefit from attending the boot camp closest to their target test date, a longer window between the boot camp and the test date is strongly recommended, especially during the busy school year. Ideally, parents and students should plan on a 6-8-week window between the boot camp and the test date during the school year so that students have adequate time to master the content and strategies as well as internalize the techniques taught at the boot camp.
