During this 2-hour strategy-focused class, we will review and practice the approaches you need to successfully navigate the SAT Reading section. The class will include reading and question strategies as well as tips for avoiding “decoy” answers. You’ll be sure to learn valuable strategies that will help you raise your score!

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3: The Essay. In this 2- hour strategy-focused class we will review the basics of the Essay: the instructions, prompt, and how it’s scored.
