A Chat with Straight A Tutoring
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
The SAT covers fairly basic concepts but is written in a way that is often tricky. It is kind of like checkers or a video game that you have to be good at in order to win. This comprehensive SAT workshop empowers students by giving them a road map to understanding and effectively taking the SAT.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
I provide handouts for vocabulary roots, grammar, math equations and rules, essay format, and an SAT-curriculum cheat sheet. Students should bring note-taking tools; something to write with and paper; and bottled water and a small snack if desired.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
When I started tutoring students in the SAT, I started seeing patterns and structures in how the SAT was designed, written, and organized. I realized the SAT tests not only students’ knowledge in math and English, but also their skill at the SAT itself. I want to take the anxiety out of the SAT.
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing when a student finally gets a concept he or she has been struggling with, and hearing back from students about their improved performance.
