The SAT is a standardized test used by most colleges and universities to help determine if a student is qualified for admittance. College applications consider other elements, like grades, extracurricular activities, letters of recommendation, and personal statements, but SAT scores also play an integral role in that final decision.
This is why SAT tutoring and prep is so important. Not only do our SAT tutoring programs focus on the types of questions and concepts that will be covered on the exam, but they also help familiarize the student with what content will be on the exam.
At IvySmart Education in Torrance, we offer different SAT tutoring programs to help students prepare for the SAT exam or see an increase from their previous score. Right now, we offer three different SAT tutoring courses:
This range of programming allows us to cater to different SAT goals, ranging from students looking to increase their score or students needing a rigorous program to help them get into a competitive school.

The most rigorous of the three courses, the 1500 SAT Club assumes that students are academically exceptional and ready to take their knowledge to the next level. Classes will do intensive studying and thorough review of practice tests, important SAT English concepts, and the toughest math questions that may be found on the test. The class will be taught by experienced SAT teachers who have provided instruction for many years. Students are expected to attend every class, follow all instructions, and do every practice homework question provided; in other words, give 100% effort.
Teachers will provide all testing information and knowledge pertinent and relevant to the actual test and provide additional practice that will help improve their grades. Additionally, they will monitor students and constantly ensure material comprehension. Failure for students to meet homework completion standards and class requirements will result in discussion with parents to make sure they are on track.
Though not as rigorous as the 1500 SAT Club, the SAT Achievers Club still requires complete diligence and dedication to witness improvement. Those who want to see a dramatic score will attend all classes, follow instructions, and try to complete all practice homework questions.
Teachers will teach students tricks that may have not been as obvious, as students in this category will have received moderately high scoring on tests. Similar standards apply in terms of student monitoring and going over pertinent information. Teachers will ensure enough material comprehension to accurately answer more questions on the actual exam. If students meet homework and class standards, they should see an improvement in their score of at least 200 points.
This program is great for people who have just begun to take the SAT or have received practice scores lower than 1000. This beginner course allows students to receive a general idea of how the test works, discuss concepts that will be covered, and go over frequent mistakes that beginners make on the test. Attendance to all classes is mandatory, and students should attempt to complete almost all or all the practice homework questions provided.
Teachers will provide students with enough instruction that will help them improve by themselves and understand how to study for the SAT. Students will be monitored carefully, but progress still must be seen in both class as well as practice tests. As denoted by the name of the category, if students follow all directions, they should see a noticeable change of at least 300 points to their test scores.
