I am happy to now be offering test prep classes for the ACT, PSAT, and SAT English, Reading, and Writing tests.
I will also include general testing skills specific to the overall tests.
My primary teaching source will be Kaplan, with information from additional sources as deemed necessary.
I will be holding the 3-class sessions 3 separate times in the fall and 4 separate times in the spring. *If these dates do not fit into your student’s schedule, please Click Here to contact Shelly about scheduling test-prep classes for individual students.
General Test-Taking Strategies: Triaging Questions, Pacing, Intelligent Guessing, etc.
English Skills: Grammar and Punctuation Rules, Word Choice (Verbs, Pronouns, Modifiers, Idioms)
English Skills 2: Wordiness (Rhetorical Skills), Connections (Cause-and-Effect and Contrast), Writing Strategy, and Organization
Reading Skills: Details, Inference, Generalizations/Conclusions, Author’s Function/Purpose, Vocab-In-Context, Writer’s View
Writing the ACT Essay: The Four Steps to Writing the Timed Argumentative Essay for the ACT or SAT. This session will include writing instruction and writing an essay as a class. Also included is my evaluation of a practice essay written at home and emailed to me. (*Notice that the ACT and SAT Writing Test class times are different, as the test parameters are different.)
