Instructors

We realize that there is more to being an effective SAT coach than having high test scores. All College Insights instructors are thoroughly trained in our methods and techniques and have experience teaching students at all scoring levels. They are recent graduates of top colleges and universities who scored in the top percentile on the SAT and have the ability to make the course fun and interesting. Our students consistently rate their teachers as the best part of the class. The bottom line in test prep is the quality of the teachers, and College Insights has the best.

Course Content

The SAT tests a limited range of mathematical skills in Arithmetic, Algebra I & II, and Geometry. We provide a thorough review in each of these areas as they are tested on the SAT, and teach extensive strategies and techniques for answering question types most common to the test. For the Reading sections of the tests, we teach methods for improving reading speed and techniques for locating pertinent information. We also provide vocabulary enhancement with words which have the highest tendency to show up on the sentence completion section of the SAT. The Writing section of the SAT and English section of the ACT primarily test grammar skills. Our grammar review focuses on about a dozen commonly made and easily recognizable mistakes which are most likely to appear on the tests. The essay portion of the class addresses the idiosyncrasies of writing a restricted time essay.

Make-up classes and extra help

Students who are unavailable for any of their Live Online sessions will be able to view the classes they have missed at any time. Students who would like a fuller understanding of any of the content areas addressed can watch classes again or access our Complete Online SAT class for no additional charge.

Materials

College Insights students prepare for the SAT using the most recently released tests and practice questions. Other companies use questions which they have written themselves to "simulate" the SAT experience. That just doesn't work, and may build false confidence. Our adherence to using actual SATs for our practice tests is one reason why our average score improvements are the best in the business. After each of the four practice tests administered throughout the course, students receive detailed diagnostic reports which provide computer generated, in-depth analysis. These reports show progress and help us to pinpoint specific strengths and weaknesses in order to provide the best course possible for our students. Other programs prepare students for their own versions of the SAT. College Insights prepares students for the real thing.

Guaranteed Improvement

College Insights has been preparing students for the SAT, ACT, GRE, and LSAT since 1991. We are the only test preparation company that supports its score improvement claims with a money-back guarantee. College Insights will work again for free with any student who completes all course work and fails to raise his or her SAT scores by at least 200 points. If, after this additional work, the student again fails to raise his or her score by at least those amounts, College Insights will refund the entire course fee. No other company offers this guarantee. Not Princeton Review. Not Kaplan Test Prep. College Insights does, because we are committed to every student.
