Crimson Review is Pennsylvania’s trusted source for quality SAT essay tutoring. The essay section of the SAT underwent a drastic transformation in 2016. A new set of rules requires careful preparation, and Crimson Review is ready to help students improve their SAT essay scores.
Geared towards unlocking each student’s full potential, Crimson Review offers a tutoring program that addresses roadblocks hindering your student from receiving top scores. No two students are alike, which is why our private tutors will help students build a curriculum that’s customized to his or her score goals, study habits, and personality.
Decoding The SAT Essay
What was once a required component of the exam is now an optional section for an additional $17.00 fee. The new 50-minute essay requires students to examine an excerpted article from noteworthy publications like Time Magazine. Students then analyze stylistic, rhetorical, and logical elements of the text within a 650-800 word essay.
Two readers then read and score your student’s essay. Each scorer awards 1-4 points for each dimension: reading, analysis, and writing. After adding the two scores for each dimension, students receive three scores, one for each dimension, ranging from 2-8 points.
Nurturing Better Writers and Improved Scores
From brainstorming topics and developing drafts to reviewing grammar and vocabulary, Crimson Review has a treasure trove of resources for students to take advantage of. With dedication, hard work, and practice, your student can nail all three areas of the SAT essay section.
