One-On-One SAT Tutoring in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Pretoria or online

Our greatest teaching tool is our passion. We get involved – head and heart and have a vested interest in seeing our students grow.

Your SAT test date is looming... are you prepared?

Every one of our SAT tutors has passed our tutor training programme with distinction, and then passed the SAT at the 99th percentile. Our SAT tutors don’t just know the work, they know how to teach it.

Our programme is guided by a sophisticated diagnostic tool that identifies which of the 37 sub-sections in the SAT we need to focus on in order to achieve their goal.

Our SAT Students frequently improve their score by 200 points.

Your SAT Tuition Needs Are Assessed:

Student profile

Study habits, routines, interests and learning style. This entails both an in-depth qualitative and detailed quantitative review of the student’s scholastic career up to that point.

SAT Mock Exam and Diagnostics

The student will write a full-length SAT at our assessment centre. This exam is then carefully analysed to determine the specific subsections, question types, and errors to focus on.

Your Target Syllabus

We review your target syllabus to determine what outcomes you need to have mastered by the ‘move date’ in order to ensure a smooth transition.

Once we understand what your needs are, we create an action plan and send trained SAT Math and SAT English tutors to get you up to speed on:

SAT Mathematics

SAT Math is very different from IEB/ Cambridge Math, and there is content and application that you need to learn. We have your back.

SAT English

The skills tested in the SAT Reading and SAT Writing sections are distinct from the skillset taught in IEB and Cambridge English. We fill in the gaps.

SAT Test Taking Techniques

Getting a great score is about so much more than just knowing the content. We teach you test-taking tools, tricks and techniques designed to maximise your score in SAT.
