SAT prep for admission to Pennsylvania State University »

I found the teacher’s own concern with success of her students and the teacher’s significant experience and deepest knowledge of all the aspects of the SAT test to be the most effective aspects of the course. The course has surpassed all my expectations.

Private SAT Prep course with focus on math »

I recently completed an individual SAT preparation course with Gain Access. The teacher was a complete professional and the center gives you all the materials, from textbooks to an excellent, wide variety of supplementary materials. The lessons are focused perfectly to my individual needs, with the teacher always discussing things that are not your forte (especially math for me). The SAT course greatly improved my English and I used it not only for my tests, but also in everyday life. I highly recommend it.

SAT Reasoning Test and the SAT Subject Tests prep »

I have been taking classes with Gain Access for almost a year now - first for the SAT Reasoning Test and now for the SAT subject tests. I find the lessons really useful as the course is based around giving you shortcuts and tips for the test, which makes things so much easier on the test day. The teachers also make the course specialized to the student, meaning that they take into account your strengths and weaknesses and plan the lessons around that. I highly recommend Gain Access.

Intensive SAT Prep Course/Skype lessons »

Due to the short amount of time I had to prepare for the SAT, I had to take intensive lessons for around a week. Most of my lessons were on Skype, except for the math lessons due to the fact that it was easier in a real classroom. During those lessons my teacher helped me understand the types of questions I was going to face during the SAT test. There is an explanation in the books about how to "crack" these questions but the teacher provided a more thorough and clearer explanation.

In addition to providing clearer explanation, the teacher has made her own questions, simple SAT questions, but which provides the structure of the questions on which she builds on to provide valuable information about the question to later provide an explanation. This made it easier for me to understand the logic behind the SAT.

During the classes the teacher first tested my knowledge, and later on worked with me and taught me what I was missing in order to succeed in my real SAT exam. I later on had to practice questions I had difficulties on, until in the end of my lessons I took a practice exam.

The teacher examined my knowledge for the SAT and worked on what was required in order for me to pass the SAT exam. She gave me exercises which I needed to practice on, and an explanation for each I had trouble with. Due to the intensive courses I took and the small amount of time I had to practice the teacher also gave me some basis knowledge of Latin root, which often helped understand complicated words. In the end I took a practice exam which already passed the required score I needed to pass.
