The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is a college entrance exam accepted by all college admissions offices in the United States and Canada. Because the SAT has significant differences from the ACT, it is important to determine which test is better suited to a student’s abilities and test-taking style.
Once a student decides to take the SAT, Next Level’s professional SAT instructors use real material from the SAT in one-on-one tutoring sessions to teach content, timing, strategy, and shortcuts that strengthen students’ skills and confidence. For many students, the SAT is the first standardized exam they are taking that will have a significant impact on their life and future, and of course every student feels considerable pressure to do well. Personalized one-on-one tutoring support is the most efficient way to reduce test anxiety and improve performance. When students feel confident about their ability and preparation, they are more likely to achieve the results they seek.
Since most colleges formally or informally superscore (i.e., take the highest score from each section across multiple test dates), students typically take the SAT two or three times, once in the 11th grade and once or twice again in the 12th grade. We recommend students allow at least six months for SAT preparation to ensure they’re fully ready on test day to achieve their greatest potential. If you’re reading this with less time than the recommended 6+ months, we can still quickly develop strategies to accelerate SAT tutoring.
