Parents and students know how important the College Board’s SATs are to college admissions and are constantly looking for ways to improve SAT scores without breaking the bank. Aristotle Circle has just announced its winning formula to SAT exam preparation success: Provide high performing high school students the tools and training they need to prepare their peers for the exam at affordable rates with customized scheduling.
The Aristotle Circle SAT Peer tutoring program is a 16-hour prep course that covers SAT test-taking strategies and skills by following a highly effective curriculum developed by leading professional SAT tutors. Enrolled students receive one-on-one tutoring from high-achieving peers in their homes or at their schools.
“More and more families are looking for smart ways to invest in SAT prep for college,” said Aristotle Circle founder and CEO Suzanne Rheault. “This program allows them to get one-on-one preparation and a comprehensive overview of a student’s strengths and weaknesses on the exam from a peer role model who has ‘been there’ and scored well on the test. “
Students take benchmark tests at the beginning and the end of the program to track overall progress and identify areas of focus during the sessions. The Aristotle Circle SAT prep program was developed by expert SAT tutors and includes test taking strategies and techniques for improving scores. The Aristotle Circle Peer SAT tutoring program is based on real exams and the College Board’s Official SAT Study Guide, 2nd edition.
