The SAT

Our SAT curriculum consists of three main parts:

  1. Test-taking strategies, including time management and handling test anxiety
  2. Individual question type strategies
  3. Academic knowledge

We give students the knowledge and confidence to do their best on the test.  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 achieving a number of perfect scores over the years. Our instructors are all college graduates, from such schools as the University of Pennsylvania, Bucknell, Wesleyan, and Johns Hopkins. Each instructor has deep expertise; the only tests we teach are the SAT, PSAT, ACT, and the ISEE/SSAT.  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

  • There will be one Saturday make-up date for students who are unable to take one of the practice tests.
  • Students in the Group 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.
