What can Tampa SAT prep cover?

The SAT has three core sections: Math, Reading, and Writing and Language. You can add an optional Essay section if you also want to have your writing evaluated as part of your test. You'll have a total of three hours to take the three main sections of the SAT. If you choose to include the SAT essay option, you have an additional 50 minutes.

The three main sections of the SAT are multiple-choice. Your total score will be based on the number of questions you answers correctly. It is important to remember that while there is no penalty for guessing, but there is a penalty for not answering questions in the form of a lower score. The potential to receive a lower score for unanswered questions means it is essential for you to to finish answering all the items on your SAT. Professional SAT preparation can help you learn to manage your time more efficiently on the exam.

The Math section of the SAT requires students to answer 58 questions within 80 minutes. The range of scores you can earn in this section of the SAT is between 200 and 800. The test is given in two parts. In one section you will be allowed to use a calculator; however, there is a section where you will not be allowed to use a calculator. During your SAT preparation make sure you are practicing with a calculator that will be approved and that you can complete items without a calculator. The section that does not allow a calculator includes 15 multiple-choice questions. You only have 25 minutes to complete all of these questions. The part of the test that will enable you to use a calculator incorporates 30 multiple-choice questions. For the section, you will have 55 minutes. It is important to note that some parts do include several questions regarding a single scenario. Working with a professional SAT instructor can help you navigate this test more effectively.

The Reading section of the SAT has 52 questions, which you will have 65 minutes to answer. You will read one passage from a contemporary or classic piece of world or US literature. You will also read a passage, or a pair of passages, from a founding document from the United States or another selection from the global conversation that the materials inspired. Some of the specific skills you may want to address during your SAT preparations include finding evidence-based support for conclusions within the passages that you've read, understanding how authors present various arguments, identifying relationships between texts and accompanying information, using context clues, and drawing inferences and conclusions.

The Writing and Language portion of the SAT is comprised of 44 questions. You will have 35 minutes to answer all of the items in the section. All of the questions you will encounter in this portion of the exam come from selected readings included in the test. No prior knowledge of the information presented will be required to complete this section of the test. However, some of the passages you will encounter will include graphs, charts, and tables, so familiarity with these types of data will be useful. Some of the skills assessed in the section include understanding standard English conventions such as proper punctuation, verb tense, subject-verb agreement, and sentence structure. You can work on any of the above skills as well as all other subject area related skills as part of your SAT prep.

What are the benefits of taking a Tampa SAT prep class?

As you prepare for the SAT, it is crucial to be aware of the time constraints of each section of the test. Working with professional SAT resources can help you remain more focused and make the best use of the time you are given.

When you register for a class, you will be able to choose between two week and four-week sessions. Selecting the right length for your needs is essential. If you want a short review, the two-week option is ideal. If you prefer to review in greater depth, a four-week option may be a better choice.

Your class will be delivered in an online classroom setting. Your instructor will present information to the entire class and then may facilitate group conversations or group projects as needed. One of the most valuable resources you gain access to as part of your class experience is the supportive learning environment. While other students are asking questions, you can obtain useful insights that you may have otherwise missed studying on your own.

How is working with a Tampa SAT tutor different from taking a course?

Working with a private instructor provides a greater degree of personalized instruction than is possible in a Tampa SAT prep course. Your instructor can design lessons that address your specific academic concerns which can make the studying process progress more quickly.

You also have greater scheduling flexibility working one on one with a private instructor. Instead of bending your schedule to fit within the constraints of the offered courses you can meet with your instructor when it is most convenient for your schedule. You can meet with your tutor at various times throughout the week and on the weekends during the morning, afternoon, or evening.
