Varsity Tutors offers excellent online Syracuse SAT courses for students who would like some guidance as they prepare to take this crucial test. Taking the SAT is like a rite of passage for many college-bound high school students. The score you earn can have an impact on the rest of your life. Your score could determine which college or university you get accepted into, which can affect the quality of your education. So it's important to prepare effectively for the SAT, and that's why Varsity Tutors provides SAT courses that can meet your test prep needs.

What kind of content is reviewed in a Syracuse SAT course?

You can be confident that your SAT course will conduct a thorough review of all content that's tested on the SAT. The exam is broken into required Writing and Language, Reading, and Math sections, and an optional Essay task. Although you have the option of whether to complete the Essay or not, you should check with the colleges you're applying to and see if they require you to submit an SAT Essay score with your results.

The full test takes 3 hours, and 50 minutes is added onto that if you write the Essay. The Reading section and Writing and Language section both contain all multiple-choice questions following passages of text or other information. The Math section contains two subsections. Both the calculator and no-calculator sections consist of both multiple-choice and grid-in questions. Your Syracuse SAT course instructor can show examples of grid-in questions, which are basically questions that require you to work the problem and come up with the answer on your own rather than choosing from a set of answers.

The Language and Writing section assess your abilities in grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, understanding words in context, and improving sentences and passages to improve clarity or relevance. The Reading section examines your skills in reading comprehension and reasoning. The Math section tests your problem-solving and analytical skills, understanding of algebra, and ability to use mathematical functions to solve real-life problems.

For the Essay, you're provided a passage that presents an argument, and you must plan and write a response critiquing the author's use of evidence to support their claim as well as their use of stylistic and persuasive elements. Your response is not an opportunity to share your views, but to analyze how effective the piece you read is. Your response should be organized, focused, and precise, using examples and quotes from the passage you're analyzing, and should demonstrate proper use of standard English conventions.

How does a Syracuse SAT class help me prepare for the exam?

Varsity Tutors provides fully interactive online instruction that's similar to, but much more convenient than, a regular classroom setting. Your meet with your expert instructor and classmates online. Classes are available at different times, so you can sign up for one that fits your schedule. You'll be led by an educator who has the knowledge and communication skills necessary to guide a group of high school students towards more effective SAT test prep processes.

Studying for standardized exams like the SAT is a bit different from studying for regular classroom tests. In addition to studying the content of the SAT, some portion of your Syracuse SAT class will likely be devoted to studying how to take the test. Students sometimes think the SAT was designed to trick them, but that's not the case. It's just presented in a different format and worded in a different way because it's given to students of a similar age throughout the country and beyond.

So in addition to comprehensive content review, you can expect to be presented with a variety of test-taking strategies during your prep classes. These tend to focus on the areas where students most commonly find trouble on the SAT. For example, time management is key to success on the SAT, because if you can't pace yourself properly, you won't be able to answer all the questions within the time limits allowed.

One way your instructor may help with this is to administer timed practice sections or tests during your class. For those who struggled to finish in time, they can introduce a handful of suggestions for how to increase your pace. If this was a concern for you, you might take some practice sections and time yourself, or the instructor might do it again during a class period if a lot of students fell behind.

Either way, you can practice the different strategies and find the one or two that really work for you. Since different solutions work for different students, it's also helpful that you can talk with your classmates about suggestions they might have in addition to those provided by your Syracuse SAT class instructor. Your peers might also have ideas about alleviating anxiety if that's an issue you have, or maybe you have suggestions to offer them.

There are other test-specific issues your SAT prep instructor can demonstrate. Also, you can request one-on-one tutoring if you run into a subject that's challenging you more than your classmates. With this as a backup, you can't go wrong by signing up for a Varsity Tutors Syracuse SAT class.
