About this class
Studying for the SAT and ACT can feel overwhelming for students, particularly those with learning difficulties like ADHD or test anxiety. This week-long crash course breaks the test down into simple, easy-to-digest parts. It focuses less on subject matter comprehension and more on key tactics and strategies that simplify the process and help boost scores. It’s an ideal course for students who struggle to focus (or who would rather not spend a large portion of their summer stuck in a classroom).
After this week-long crash course, students will be able to do the following:
Understand the different sections of the test and how best to navigate them
Identify the different types of questions that appear on the SAT and ACT (including ACT Science)
Recognize patterns in test questions and answers (this familiarity helps greatly come exam time)
Apply simple techniques for eliminating answers and answering questions quickly
Implement strategies for managing their time more efficiently, both when practicing and in the exam itself
Create an individualized breakdown score (and tactics) to help achieve their goals
Andy holds master's degrees from both Oxford and Edinburgh Universities. He has been tutoring full-time since 2010. After moving to Seattle from the U.K. in 2015, he founded a tutoring agency in Seattle's University District. He specializes in exam technique and SAT/ACT strategies.
Andy has extensive experience working with students with dyslexia, ADHD and other learning differences. In addition to providing subject-matter knowledge, his lessons empower students and boost their confidence, both key components to academic success.
Andy’s courses are tailored towards the needs of students who don’t benefit fully from a typical classroom environment. The small class size allows for greater individual attention, and students benefit from teaching that’s tailored to their unique needs. By building students’ confidence, they are challenged to push themselves; Andy’s enthusiasm and passion lead students to enjoy learning.
