Standardized Test Preparation

The Standardized Aptitude Test (SAT) has become a rite of passage in the college preparation process. The Ivy Advisor recognizes the test’s importance and its weight in students’ lives, which is why he targets students’ weaknesses to boost their scores by 300 points or more. It is never too early to start preparing for the SATs; the Ivy Advisor’s students’ range from middle to high schoolers. The earlier you start, the better the chance you have of getting a high score and successfully applying to a higher-ranked college.

Dr. William Jiang has personally done ALL Critical Reading and Writing Sections of the Official SAT practice tests for the last eight years. He has formulated proprietary lecture notes with the most effective proven strategies to tackle SAT questions. For the SAT Essay, Dr. Jiang has experience as an official Collegeboard SAT Essay Reader, and has developed his own exclusive formula in such detail that students can easily master it, and subsequently score 11 or 12 points out of the 12 possible on the SAT essay.

The Critical Reading and Writing Standardized Test Preparation program involves about 60 hours of assignments per section for a total of 120 hours of assignments. By the end of the classes, each student will have practiced an average of 20 full SAT tests.
