sat subject tests
The SAT subject tests are a collection of 20 multiple-choice tests given on individual subjects, taken to improve a student’s credentials for admission to college. Students typically choose which tests to take depending upon college entrance requirements for the schools to which they are planning to apply. Most selective colleges recommend that applicants submit scores for two subject tests. A handful of the most competitive schools, such as Georgetown University, still require three subject tests.
We offer group classes for several SAT subject tests. The classes run in the spring leading up to the June administration.We offer individual tutoring at any time of year for subject tests. In the spring, starting in April and leading up the June administration, we also offer group classes for subject tests in chemistry, physics, math 2, biology, U.S. history, and Latin.
Students will be challenged by concepts that are not often taught during the academic year, but appear on the standardized test. In addition to the class time, students will be responsible for homework, including practice tests and worksheets to reinforce concepts.
Advanced placement tests
The AP (Advanced Placement) tests are a collection of 31 multiple-choice and free-response tests given on individual subjects. Colleges grant course credit and/or advanced placement to students who obtain high scores on the examinations. Some colleges use AP test scores to exempt students from introductory coursework. Each college’s policy is different, but most require a minimum score of 3 or 4 (on the 1–5 scale) to receive college credit.
We offer individual tutoring for the AP subjects of English, Calculus, U.S. History, World History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Spanish.
