What do we teach in the SAT Boot Camp?

  • The most difficult passage is not the last passage. Students learn to read the passages in a unique sequence that helps them avoid running out of time and losing points needlessly.

  • One question in each passage is almost always the hardest. Students learn how to deal with it and avoid having it shake their confidence.

  • We give students tips for actively reading the passages and avoid common pitfalls that eat up all their time without giving them any points.

  • Citing evidence questions require students to give justification for their answers. This adds to item difficulty, but students who have attended the Boot Camp can use this structure to their advantage.

  • College Board has touted that they have eliminated esoteric vocabulary questions, but what they have really done is shift the focus to context. We show students how to use answer choices like a built-in dictionary to arrive at the correct answer.
  • Questions gradually increase in difficulty, which makes time management tricky. We show students how to manage their time and maximize their points.

  • Punctuation marks can kill your students’ scores, but not if they apply the tricks they learn in the SAT Boot Camp to semicolons, colons, and commas.

  • Answers that sound right are often wrong, but we show how students can use their ear to their advantage with a tip they won’t find anywhere else.

  • On some questions, students end up guessing, but in the Writing and Language test, some guesses are far superior to others. Students will learn how to play the odds on the SAT to maximize their scores.

  • Some students will overthink their way to the wrong answer⁠—unless they follow our tips on the SAT Boot Camp. 
  • The Math test is half your students’ score, which is why we devote half of the content time in the SAT Boot Camp to math.

  •  Simple errors kill SAT Math scores. In the SAT Boot Camp, we catalog the most common errors and help students avoid making them.

  • Students may not be used to the grid-in format that appears at the end of each Math section—at least not until they complete the SAT Boot Camp.

  • All Math questions are worth the same number of points, but as students progress, the questions gradually increase in difficulty—with an important caveat. We show students how to approach the Math questions in a new sequence that ensures they have time to get to the easy questions. (Some of your students are missing out on simple questions at the back of the test!)

  • One strategy trumps all others in Math, but it requires that your students have a deep understanding of how it works and how to extend it to the trickiest questions that the Math test can throw at them.

  • Your students will learn the guessing strategies that convert blind guesses into extra points—strategies that only high-end SAT tutors are teaching.
