Test Prep with Mary Catherine Tatum
The SAT Prep Course is designed to help students navigate the SAT test. The twelve hour course covers each section of the SAT: Math, Critical Reading, & Writing and Language. The instructor breaks down each section and teaches the students how to recognize what each question is asking and how to choose the best answer. The majority of the course is spent taking practice tests and understanding the answers. By practicing, the student will increase his/her score and become faster at answering the questions. The course allows the students a designated time each week that they focus solely on the SAT. While taking this course will help the student improve their scores, the instructor encourages each student to spend time outside of class practicing to achieve maximum improvement. The cost of the course is $200.00 and that includes the study book that is used.
The next SAT Prep Course will be for the May 6, 2017 SAT. The course will begin on April 2, 2017. Classes will be held on Sundays & Wednesdays, except for Spring Break Wednesday & Easter Sunday, leading up to the May test (4/2, 4/9, 4/19, 4/23, 4/26, 4/30, 5/3). All Sunday classes will meet from 2:00- 4:00pm, with the Wednesday classes meeting from 6-8pm.
The classes will be held at the First Presbyterian Church in Cornelia, GA.
