Tri-Cities Prep is offering an SAT preparation program designed for the “new” SAT! This supplementary program is taught by instructors trained by the writers of the SAT test and aims to make all students get the most from their scores.  Each course is designed to have students review concepts pertinent to the redesigned SAT.  Sessions include review of topics, hints at taking the test, creative approaches to problems, and practice questions.  Each session is led by certified teachers trained specifically by the College Board ® in the SAT.  Throughout the courses, students get individual instruction and correction as well as work with peer groups to discover clever and insightful approaches and solutions.  Along with direct instruction, students work from materials (both book and electronic) produced by the College Board ® — writers of the SAT. Courses run in 2 hour sessions focused in either math or English.  The program runs for 4 weeks leading up to a specific SAT date.
