SAT/ACT

SAT Prep

The age-old nemesis of high school students is the SAT. Each year, thousands of students take the standard SAT in hopes of getting into the college of their dreams. With expert, personalized instruction and proven test strategies, our goal is to help students maximize their scores and get into the college they desire.

What to Expect

  • 12, 24, or 36 hours of direct classroom instruction
  • Full-length SAT diagnostic tests
  • SAT prep course handbook
  • Supplemental exercises & practice problems
  • Flexible scheduling options
  • Optimal student:teacher ratio of no more than 8:1

The SAT tests students on three important subject areas (Reading, Writing and Language, and Mathematics). The SAT is a challenging test for several reasons. The Reading section tests students’ stamina as well as their abilities to understand a variety of passage types and vocabulary concepts. On the Math section, test takers must navigate through a number of concepts from arithmetic, algebra, and geometry combined with problem-solving techniques. And the Writing section tests students on grammar and usage concepts as well as timed writing abilities.

SAT PREP THAT WORKS
On average, students who take our SAT prep course increase their test scores by over 200 points! That’s because our classes combine expert materials with in-person instruction by dedicated instructors to deliver information in a way that students understand, helping students boost their scores and confidence. Our SAT prep courses are held in small, personalized group sessions at our center in Bowie, Maryland or individual sessions In-Home or via Skype.

Advanced Curriculum
Students’ work from our SAT prep workbook, a carefully crafted curriculum of SAT strategies, practice exercises, homework assignments, and vocabulary assessments designed to cover every facet of the test. We also provide supplemental exercises to help students target individual test areas and improve specific SAT skills.

ACT Prep

All colleges accept the ACT as part of their standardized test measure meaning more and more students are taking it. Why not hone your English, math, reading, and science aptitude and excel? The ACT is offered to and mainly taken by juniors. You can repeat the exam in the fall of your senior year to improve your test scores.

At Math ETC, our programs include individualized instruction in our state-of-the-art tutoring facility where students take at least one full-length proctored exam, homework to help their understanding, and have regular conferences to go over progress. All our programs are guaranteed to help you gain confidence in your own abilities and test-taking skills, increase your preparation, and achieve the highest scores possible, allowing your dream colleges to be within reach.

Our premier program is tailored to the individual student, accounting for his needs and goals. This is our most thorough program available with the curriculum and timeline tailored to meet personal goals and needs. Students can choose to work in all subjects or focus on their weakest subjects.

The 36-hour program is intended for students with a time-crunch who want to focus on all subject areas. Included in the thirty-six hours are nine hours of practice tests and personalized instruction in all testing subject areas. If students want to focus on one subject and have very limited time to prepare, the 12 or 24-hour program is ideal for them.

Assessments

  • At Math ETC we are data-driven. All incoming students are required to take an assessment to determine strengths and weaknesses. The results are shared with parents in a conference and then used to construct a streamlined lesson plan for the tutorial sessions.
  • Assessments can be administered up to 2 times each school year, including the initial assessment.

Scheduling

  • Sessions are scheduled in 12, 18, or 24-hour packages per quarter (3 months). Parents can choose a month-to-month plan which will be assessed at a higher rate.
  • 2 The initial schedule agreed upon between Math ETC and the parent will be posted on the Parent Portal prior to class start.

Rescheduling

Reporting

  • Communication regarding the status and progress of students will be reported via student notes and emailed to the parents within 24 hours of students completing their session.
  • Detailed Progress Reports that give an overview of student’s growth and performance compared to the initial benchmarks will be provided every quarter by email.
  • To better serve all clients of Math ETC, instructors and staff are unable to speak with parents after every session as this would impede assistance to other clients. Parents are welcome to request a conference via their Parent Portal.
  • Any concerns must be discussed first with the Center Director by sending an email to [email protected] If an issue cannot be resolved in this manner, a phone call or meeting may be requested.
