Students provided with SAT preparation opportunities
By JACKY SHUM
With the SAT examinations coming in October, seniors can better prepare themselves by taking various private courses and online classes.
Tier One course is named as “Best of L.A. Los Angeles Tutoring Services” by CBS, Higher Educational Consultants Association (HECA), Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) and a member of National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC). They are national organizations, which consists of college admission professionals. Tier One utilizes a number of innovative programs taught by a large team of experts, handpicked by Tier One, providing students with the education for the subject they desire. They also focus on custom one-on-one methods, such as private tutoring, to help students get the most out of their program.
College Board has also released an application to help students prepare for the SAT called “Daily Practice for the New SAT.” Downloading this application supplies users with a new SAT-based problem each day. This also features additional content explaining answers to help improve performance. Users can also track progress by connecting to Official SAT Practice at Khan Academy for personalized study, as well as access to SAT dates and registration deadlines. The app also functions as a scantron, allowing students to quickly scan exams using their camera on the phone.
Kranse Online SAT prep is also known to have produced improved test scores as based on yearly results published on their website. Students are also able to learn through their short online lectures. Their online SAT prep allows students to learn at their own pace, rather than in a classroom or during time for other extracurricular activities. Although it costs $500 per year, students who find the content less than desirable are given a seven-day-money-back guarantee.
The school board is providing free PSATs for all juniors, sophomores and freshmen. The test will be given at school Oct. 19 on a block-day schedule.
