Nothing compares to the value of one-on-one, individualized instruction. We are thrilled to announce our skills-based curriculum that will help students dramatically improve their scores on the SAT." – David Manshoory, CEO, 1 On 1 Academic Tutors

“Nothing compares to the value of one-on-one, individualized instruction,” said David Moses Manshoory, CEO and Co-Founder of 1 On 1 Academic Tutors. “We are thrilled to announce our skills-based curriculum that, combined with personally tailored instruction from our tutors, will help students dramatically improve their scores on the SAT.”
The SAT is the standardized test most U.S. colleges require for admissions. A great SAT score can open doors to fantastic schools; a weaker score can limit a student’s options. But the SAT itself features mathematical, reasoning, and vocabulary questions that are unlike any coursework most students have encountered, which leaves many students looking beyond the classroom for help in preparing for this important rite of passage.
1 On 1 Academic Tutors’ new SAT Skills Boot Camp is designed to teach test-taking strategies and build skills in critical reading, high school mathematics, and expository writing. The 15-lesson program was written by credentialed teachers with Ivy League degrees and extensive understanding of the SAT, and includes resources for students and parents. For families who sign up for the SAT Skills Boot Camp, individualized lessons are taught in their home and on their schedule by instructors from 1 On 1 Academic Tutors’ cadre of SAT experts.
“Many families sign up for group SAT prep classes, but that’s really not the best use of a parent’s investment in their child’s SAT score,” explained Whitney Barrett, Director of Private Tutoring at 1 On 1 Academic Tutors. “Students’ individual needs are easily overlooked in group classes, and there is no accountability for their learning. A student can sit in the back and text the whole time! Our tutors identify the specific areas each student needs to focus on, and help them gain confidence by teaching them how to master the skill and the test. Many companies just focus on tricks for getting through the test, while 1 On 1 tutors provide customized one-on-one lessons backed by solid curriculum.”
The SAT is only offered seven times each year on dates determined by the College Board, the official body administering the test. Most students take an initial SAT in spring of their junior year, and then, depending on their score, take it again in the fall of their senior year. In Spring 2011, the SAT will be administered nationwide on Saturday, May 7, and Saturday, June 4.
That leaves only 6-10 weeks to study! If families have not yet made SAT test prep a priority, now is the time to start.
Through June 4, 2011, 1 On 1 Academic Tutors is offering the SAT Skills Boot Camp at a discounted rate: $900 for 15 hours, or 30 hours for $1650, including the SAT Skills Boot Camp curriculum, additional test prep materials, and tools to take two full-length proctored practice tests.
When planning for SAT prep, Barrett advises that families will see the best results if they make tutoring appointments a priority. “I tell students to schedule at least one two-hour tutoring session per week, and then spend several additional hours studying alone between sessions,” she said. “Our tutors guide students so they can study effectively on their own, and clearly explain questions and introduce important topics and strategies during lessons.”
