SAT/PSAT Prep Lessons

The Khan Academy SAT learning process is the basis for the SAT prep that I offer. The lessons presented can be worked on without assistance (on your own) or by having a highly skilled math coach to assist with each lesson.


You will do the lessons, and as you want assistance, or need a greater level of understanding of the concepts presented, I will be there to make the lessons come alive for you.

I have the ability to make the concepts which are critical in doing well on the SAT clear and practical for my students. So, work on your own, or join me in mastering the lessons of the Math Section of the SAT.

When completing a practice test, you will gain so much more than just your performance, you will be guided based on what you answer correctly and incorrectly into great understanding and the best chance for overall improvement. I look forward to working with you to improve your SAT Math Composite score.
