This one semester self-paced SAT/ACT class prepares students to perform well on both the SAT and ACT college entrance exams. We believe, as do many educators, that students should take both tests. Most colleges will accept either and students will sometimes score higher on one exam than the other. This class covers all subject matter on these two exams (reading, math, english and science) as well as essay-writing and test-taking strategies. The instructor will cover a number of “short-cuts” and lesser known facts about the tests that can make them less confusing and allow the students to work more quickly (and even guess more accurately, if necessary) in the time that they have. The textbooks are HUGE, but don’t be intimidated – Most of them are practice tests and homework will be to practice what is talked about in class. Since the nature of this course is self paced, pre-recorded lessons will be available to students to view at a time that best works with their schedule. The course syllabus will provide suggested deadlines to help with student pacing for the semester, and students will have a weekly opportunity to meet with the teacher live through office hours.
