MIDDLE SCHOOL: SAT PREPARATION
Would you like your child to be one of those students whom you read about in the newspapers because they scored a perfect score on the SAT? The secret is to begin practicing now. Time and time again we have seen our students who practiced extensively during our SAT prep class be awarded the highest of scores on the SAT. What you may not realize is that your child can do this, too, if he/she simply begins practicing at such a young age that by the time he/she takes the SAT in high school, it has become a simple habit. It is a proven fact that the more one practices this exam, the better one scores.
VERBAL ONLY (7 days/14 hours) Choose your own dates, times, & location!
SAT ESSAY WRITING (5 days/10 hours) Choose your own dates, times, & location!
Middle school students are at an advantage with the SAT essay because they have the luxury of learning and perfecting their writing skills long before they will write for the SAT essay exam. As practice truly does make perfect, these techniques will come in handy for not only SAT, but for all classes as well. The verbal portion of the SAT is graded partially on a subjective grading system, as now essay writing has been added and people (not computers) will be grading that part of the exam. Who is to say that one grader won’t have a differing opinion from the next? Does your child’s SAT score depend upon which essay grader you have? The best defense is to simply develop solid writing skills that will be approved by any type of quality grader. Developed by Educational Advantage Director, Deborah Wallack (MA and Ph.D. studies in English), this writing class will teach and sharpen all writing skills and levels specifically for this exam.
These classes are perfect for those who wish to quickly brush up or fill in the gaps of a previous math level—or—for those students planning to work ahead & stay one step ahead of their school math class. Session I is the first half of the regular Educational Advantage program for that math level; while Session II picks up where Session I left off. Students will learn the essentials of that math level, & will be taught in a small group setting by an Educational Advantage math coach. Participants will be grouped according to grade levels (middle school or high school). Students are encouraged to ask questions regarding their own school math classes.

Through these revisions, students will be able to see their own progress and writing style development as they compare both their early and final drafts.

At the same time, students will learn methods to help them stay calm under the pressure of a timed test, as well as how best to effectively and quickly move through the reading material while simultaneously remaining focused and comprehending the material at hand. Participants will be grouped according to grade levels (middle or high school). This class is taught in a small group setting by an Educational Advantage English coach.

Therefore, refreshing yourself of these important grammar skills will only help provide that extra advantage. Learn to finally identify all those parts of speech!
