SAT is a standardized college admission test, widely used in United States since 1926. The SAT is owned and published by the College Board, a private, nonprofit organization and is developed and administered on behalf of the College Board by the Educational Testing Service. SAT tests your knowledge of reading, writing and math — subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms. Your knowledge and skills in these subjects are important for success in college and throughout your life. Basically, the test is intended to assess a student's readiness for college.

Our Approach

Preparing for SAT can be very challenging to a busy high schooler. We can help you get into the college of your dreams by systematically and strategically planning the course of action towards achieving great scores. The student will start with a full length, 4hrs Diagnostic Test. Together with the test results and the feedback given by the parents and the student we create a customized curriculum tailored to the needs of a particular student. The tutoring happens in very small group of 3 students to one teacher ratio. Our teachers are highly qualified, experienced and are fully equipped to take care of the special needs & goals of every student. To suit the swamped schedules of our students we provide a very flexible schedule that can be adjusted with as less as one days’ notice.
