SAT Test Prep
Our program has been delivering higher SAT scores for over twenty years and has been written specifically for international students.
Quest provides SAT prep courses designed specifically for the unique needs of international students. The new SAT places much greater emphasis on English reading comprehension and writing skills, which can pose a challenge for most ESL learners.
To address the challenges of the revised SAT, students receive a 28-hour course that provides students with an understanding of the design of the test, its pattern, the tricks the test makers use and specific strategies they can use to improve their scores. SAT II is an in-depth concentration on essay writing. The needs of freshman and sophomore students are different than junior /senior students, for this reason, we developed an additional program that specifically focuses on the needs of the younger international students.
We offer SAT Test Prep Courses 1 & 2
Course 2 is an in-depth concentration on essay writing. The needs of freshman and sophomore students are different than junior /senior students, for this reason, we developed an additional program that specifically focuses on the needs of the younger international students. At this level, the course is focused on the development of essential English skills that correlate to both academic successes as well as high performance on the SAT.
Our teachers are veteran professional educators with proven track records of success with AP, SAT, and ACT exams. They have produced dramatic increases in student scores and have aided students in achieving the academic and testing success that enabled them to receive admission to Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT, Berkeley, and many other prestigious universities. Under their guidance, students will practice the essential skills needed for success both in the classroom as well as on the SAT.
We coach students using an “essay formula” that was created by a former SAT essay grader and is easy to apply. It is highly formulaic and focuses on thesis development and evidence synthesis and is effective especially for international students. Students are given practice essays and the feedback they need to improve and score well on the SAT essay. Students will learn most critical topics covered on SAT as well as strategies to help them get to the right answer more quickly.
