SAT and ACT Test Prep
Our SAT group classes are offered throughout the calendar year. We limit our group sizes to a maximum of 8 students. In this way, we are able to offer individualized instruction and can help personalize each student’s test-taking strategy.
Students are asked to submit SAT or ACT test scores or are scheduled to take a full-length practice exam at SMP. Using this information, a personalized lesson plan is created. All of our instructors are trained in SMP Tutoring's proven test-taking strategies.
SAT Preparation Programs
ACT Preparation Programs
Full-Length SAT Prep Course - 34 hours
Our 15-week SAT Prep Course starts with a full-length practice SAT. We then meet weekly for two-hour sessions, following a structured lesson plan that exposes students to strategies for each of the question-types found on the SAT. A second practice test is administered to make note of progress and identify areas that still require improvement. Our final sessions help students to gain confidence so that they are ready to take their SAT the same week as our final session.
Intensive SAT Courses - 12 hours
These 6-week courses are ideal for students who have already taken the SAT but need additional help with either the Reading and Writing or Math portions of the exam. Students enroll for either the Reading and Writing or the Math Intensive and then meet weekly for two hours to work on the specific area. Students are welcome to take both the Reading and Math Intensive courses for a total of 24 hours of instruction.
Students enrolling for private tutoring arrange a convenient schedule in order to prepare for a specific administration of the SAT. A minimum of 14 hours is required. Students who have not yet taken the SAT will start by taking one of our full-length practice tests in order to help us gauge their strengths and weaknesses and provide a more individualized lesson plan.
