You DO NOT have to be a good test-taker to improve with Caddell Prep.

Too often, we come across students who have high grades in school that don’t match up with their PSAT or SAT scores. It’s a common problem among students that’s a concern for  students and their parents. Many of them believe that they just aren’t good on standardized tests.

However, we are able to help turn them into good SAT test takers. We have found that the transformation involves learning tricks to answer questions and gaining confidence in their abilities during SAT prep. Gaining confidence is the hard part, but not impossible. It involves practicing, taking sample tests and receiving support from their tutors or instructor

Sent my son there for SAT prep. He found the course to be very helpful. Small classes and attentive teachers created a good learning environment. The owner was very accommodating in regards to educational scheduling conflicts and all in all an excellent prep course. The proof was in my sons SAT scores. With two older children who have been to several other prep classes on Staten Island, this was by far the best. I highly recommend this company.

We were very pleased with my son's SAT results. He was able to improve his score significantly. The smaller class sizes and individual attention at Caddell Prep is very beneficial to the students and leads to good results. I would definitely recommend Caddell Prep to others.

During my Junior year, my mom and I started to discuss my options in preparing for the SAT. We decided that the best route for me would be the SAT prep class offered by Caddell Prep because of the affordability and small class sizes that Caddell Prep offers. I took the class with 5 other students and received very individualized attention. I was never hesitant to ask or answer questions, even when there was the possibility that I was wrong, because I was so comfortable in the environment provided by our teacher. I learned countless tricks to conserve time, manage the hardest questions, and take the test efficiently. My score ultimately increased by 250 points, surpassing my goal. I always recommend Caddell Prep to underclassmen looking for SAT classes!

During my junior year, my mother and I began looking at places that would help me prepare for the SAT because I had a lot of difficulty preparing for it on my own. We eventually agreed that Caddell Prep was the best option because of the convenient private tutoring plan that was offered, which included a free workbook, and the affordability of it. Personally, I really enjoyed the lessons. Glyn explained things in a way that made it easy to understand. I never got lost and if i had trouble completely understanding something, Glyn would help me break it down. He also taught me a lot of important tips to keep in mind while taking the SAT. I learned how to use specific strategies when it came to answering certain types of questions. For example, my trouble spot was the reading section due to the fact that I found it hard to read the passage quickly and pull out the important information; however, by doing what Glyn taught me I was able to improve my reading score by 200 points, which improved my overall SAT score a lot. I believe private tutoring really helped me out a lot because I'm shy when it comes to asking questions in front of a whole class but when it was just me and the tutor I felt completely comfortable asking any question I had, which allowed me to take full advantage of my time with the tutor. Overall, I had a very good experience at Caddell Prep and highly recommend it for students looking for a helpful tutoring center.

How to Score Higher on the SAT

The current version of the SAT is scored out of 1600 points. The English portion of the test is made up of a Reading test and a Writing and Language test. Each of the two sections is worth a maximum of 400 points. The math portion of the SAT is made up of two math sections: one that doesn’t permit the use of a calculator and one that does. The raw scores of both sections are combined and then scaled according to a table to determine the score for the math portion of the test. Students assume that the math sections that allows the calculator is easier than the one without a calculator, but that isn’t true for many students. The calculator math section is difficult because it tests a lot of theory in applying mathematical concepts to real life examples, which is difficult without a strong understanding of math. Our SAT prep course covers those concepts and how to apply them, of course.

For many students, scoring higher will be the result of familiarity with the test and recognizing how to approach questions. Our SAT lessons teach the material and test taking strategies needed for the SAT exam and include SAT practice questions directly related to the lesson, so your child can practice what was just taught and commit it to memory. There are many different math questions, but the question types do repeat. The more exposure students get to practice questions, the more likely they will be to immediately recognize the question-type and how to answer it. Here are our top 5 tips for preparing for the SAT.

On the Writing and Language section of the test, there are of course an almost unlimited number of texts that the student may encounter. However, the rules that are tested on the test are predictable. Reviewing the common rules that are tested, and how to improve sentences will greatly help a student improve his or her SAT score.

In the end, it is possible to get a perfect score (1600) on the SAT. Depending on the test and the specific scoring for that test, it is possible to get a perfect score without answering every single questions correctly. Sometimes getting one or more wrong in each section will still result in 1600.

While getting a high as score as possible will help when applying to schools, it’s important to know what SAT score schools require. When considering a college, students should so some research. Most college websites include the average SAT score of their most recently accepted class of students. Here is a list of a select schools and the average SAT score of their 2017 freshmen class.

Take a Practice Test

We always recommend students to start by taking a diagnostic exam. Whether a student will come to our office for tutoring, join a class, or go through our self-paced course, we recommend he takes a diagnostic test. The test serves two purposes. First, it gets the student familiar with the SAT. Having to sit for the test under timing conditions, introduces the student to the constraints of the test and the presentation of questions on the test. Secondly, it provides the student with a baseline score and strengths and weaknesses. If a student has a very limited number of time, knowing strengths and weaknesses early will help a student prioritize his time.

If a student has sufficient time to study before the real SAT, the student can got through the lessons as normal. After finishing a specific number of lessons and practice problems, we would recommend that the student is tested again to check progress. We use official SAT practice tests for our practice tests and time the students accordingly, so they are prepared for their test day.

Advanced Assessment

Whether you sign up for our SAT prep class or private tutoring, students will get updated assessments based on their practice test scores and breakdown on the readingwriting, and math sections. Our advanced assessment goes much deeper with specific topics to help create a study plan for each student. The College Board breakdown only provides general topics such as evidence based reading, command of evidence, heart of Algebra, standard English conventions, etc. However, our assessment gives feedback on specific topics such as punctuation, introductory phrases, purpose, system of equations, exponent rules, etc. It is important to know exactly what to study for, so you can be ready for the real SAT on your test date. Your prep course instructor or private tutor will return your score report after each test.

It’s important to note that the SAT is a standardized test, and as such, topics and question types repeat. Using proper test preparation, a student can maximize his/her chances of success and be ready for the real SAT.

More Information About the SAT

Optional Essay

There is an optional essay on the SAT. However, the College Board announced that it will stop offering the optional essay. Whether you answer the essay or not, the essay has no impact on your SAT score. In fact, most colleges do not require students to complete the essay on the SAT, so we don’t cover it in our online SAT course or during our in-person SAT class.

SAT Subject Tests

The College Board used to offer SAT subject tests, known as SAT 2s, but has cancelled them in the United States and will cancel them internationally after June 2021. The tests allowed students to show their knowledge on specific subjects, such as Chemistry, English, Biology, Math 1, Math 2, and more. As a result, it will no longer be used as part of the college admission process.
