Anna is a student we had who got 1200 on her first SAT. Due to timing and other factors, her family decided to buy an 18 hour package after talking with us about the benefits of a minimally sized tutoring package (as opposed to a class or no tutoring at all) while wanting to be conservative with their money. Below is a session-by-session breakdown of the progress she made, the subjects she was taught, and the practice exams that she took. Anna ended up improving and got a 1420 on the real SAT exam, truly showing how much a student can benefit from even the smallest amount of tutoring with Victory Step Education!
Reviewing the recent exam gleams some flaws in Anna’s test-taking and critical reading skills, which they intend to address. The first part of the session is the tutor pointing out and rectifying many of the problems she has such as not going through every answer. The rest of the time, they review how much progress Anna has made since the beginning and is an opportunity for the tutor to give more holistic tips on taking the exam. Get to sleep early, eat healthy every day but especially before and the morning of, drink lots of water and bring a snack and drink to the exam, and most of all, stay positive. The rest of the session the tutor answers any last-minute questions her now prepared student might have.
Anna took the SAT shortly after her last session and got a 1420, giving her an easy in to the University of Texas at Austin (with her great GPA and extracurricular activity)! She and her family were extremely receptive, welcoming, and grateful to Victory Step Education and her tutor!
