Understanding Key Question Types in Each Section
Math Section Subject Knowledge
Simon began by taking our SAT Diagnostic Test, which we provide students who struggle to understand their strengths and weaknesses. This is a particularly important part of the process to make efficient and effective use of time with a personally-tailored plan. From there, he benefited from understanding the broader strokes of the format, such as the various question types that comprise each section. Taking a step back like this to ‘study the test not only the content’ provided Simon confidence in his abilities as a test-taker and made a huge difference!
Nithya was really supportive and great! She was patient with me, and I really connected well with her to learn the material. Also, Michael and Emerson were great in guiding me, and I really appreciate everything they and their team did to support me along the way. Thanks again!
When Simon began our sessions, he was apprehensive but determined, and it was evident that the SAT presented a considerable challenge for him. He simply didn’t think he could improve, especially not so much so quickly! However, I quickly sensed his commitment to improvement.
We began by identifying his strengths and weaknesses, which allowed us to tailor sessions to address specific areas that required his attention, and this step-by-step approach provided clear goalposts one at a time. He really responded well, and I couldn’t be more proud of him!
