    Does anyone have any recommendations for a local SAT prep class or tutor for a HS Junior….?

     

    Thanks!

    I used to teach the Princeton Review SAT prep class and did private instruction on my own.  I think Princeton Review’s methods are really good.  The drawback with Princeton Review is that it is pricey.  I am sure there are some private tutors that are cheaper and as good.  Before you go with a class, have your student go through a Princeton Review book and take some practice tests (do each practice test in one sitting with a timer for each section).  You’ll get an idea of his/her strengths and weaknesses and will know what he/she needs to work on whether you go with Princeton Review or a tutor.   Plus, I think practice and familiarity is a confidence builder.  Good luck!

    Never understood SAT prep. Just take the test and be done with it. The score doesn’t matter as much as people think it does when it comes to admissions.

    The APS Office of Minority Achievement has a SAT Prep class. Its about a month and I believe it is about $60. It includes the Practice exam, SAT Prep and registration for the SAT. If your child gets free or reduced lunch this fee can be waived. This program is taught by Method Test Prep.

    I’m sure your child already took or is going to be taking the PSAT as the H.S. hosts it for all Juniors.

    Some of the Math teachers host Math SAT prep class for 2 weeks after school. Contact your child’s Math teacher.

    @Swag: The SAT may not matter for admissions as much as it once did, but at least in my case, it mattered for scholarships.  But, this was more than 15 years ago, so perhaps things have changed on this front.

    Arlington Adult Education also offers SAT prep classes in the evenings.  There is one starting in January.
