The SAT

The College Board is in the midst of a major change to the SAT. It started with changes to the PSAT in October of 2015, and continued with the introduction of the “new” SAT on March 5th, 2016. From here on, all SAT administrations will be the “new” exam. We’ve been following the changes closely and have new curriculum to match the changes the College Board has introduced. Our group classes focus on the strategies and academics for the test, while our one-on-one instruction provides each student with individual attention and a customized learning plan. This has resulted in our students a number of perfect scores over the years. Our instructors are all college graduates, from such schools as the University of Pennsylvania, Bucknell, and Johns Hopkins. See below for more information on our test prep offerings.

The PSAT

For most students, the PSAT provides a useful tune-up prior to taking the SAT. It gives a representative idea of how the student might score on the SAT if they don’t take any further actions; if they do want to improve, it gives guidance as to which areas will need the most work.

THE NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
For students who expect to score near the top of the range (top 10%), some preparatory work for the PSAT can help students to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship competition. Information on the requirements can be found here . For those students, Crimson Review provides practice PSAT tests and 1-1 tutoring to help them achieve their best possible score. Contact us for more information regarding PSAT test preparation and the scholarship program.

Our Policies

  • A $100 nonrefundable deposit is required to assure a place in all courses.
  • Group classes will be assigned to keep students of the same abilities together. Students are assigned based on scoring of the diagnostic exam.
  • There will be one Saturday make-up date for students who are unable to take one of the practice tests.
  • Students in the Basic course are not eligible to make up missed classes.
  • We require 24 hours notice to move or cancel a 1-1 appointment. For students in the courses, late cancellations or no-shows will be considered taught. For hourly students, there will be a $50 charge.
  • Students in the Full or Basic courses are eligible for additional 1-1 hours at the reduced price of $125 / hour.
  • A student who withdraws from a course after their first week and returns all materials will receive a refund of all fees paid minus a $100 administrative fee. Students who withdraw later will receive a pro-rated refund based on the number of classes taken at the time of withdrawal. No refunds will be given for 1-1 hours not used by the given SAT test date.
