“Nat Alderman. Nat was excellent. Very accommodating to our schedule. Brian wanted to improve his English SAT score and we only had a few weeks before the next SAT session. Nat focused on the areas that Brian needed help. Nat gave excellent strategies for understanding the readings and taking the test. He also spent part of a session going over a few items in Math. Brian already had an excellent math score, but he hoped to improve it a little if possible.”

Karen A., Parent

“Drew is the best tutor out there! He knows and understands the SAT test inside and out and has been able to communicate the best working strategies to help Robert achieve his best score. Drew’s personality is a perfect fit for our shy son too. He is outgoing, enthusiastic and encouraging about Robert’s potential while also being realistic and sincere. Also, he is patient which Robert appreciates the most.”

Karen L., Parent

When should I take the SAT

Once we’ve helped your student decide which test to focus on, the next step is determining when to take it. Generally, we recommend allowing for 10–16 weeks of preparation leading up to test day. Keep in mind that most students take the test two to three times to maximize scores.

This is a schedule of national SAT test dates. Note that The College Board also provides a fee-based option to schools, allowing them to administer the SAT for their students on established School Day SAT dates.

To register for an SAT date, you must create an account on The College Board website.
