The SAT is a well known and little loved rite of passage for high school students across the country. Prizing critical thinking and problem solving above memorization and regurgitation of facts, the SAT makers have created a test that, fortunately, can be taught and thoroughly prepared for. 

Clayborne Education’s two-part, individualized test preparation:

Diagnostic Stage- For SAT students, our first step at Clayborne is to administer a full-length diagnostic pre-test. We analyze the student's results from their diagnostic and prepare a personally tailored program that takes into account their college goals and individual testing needs. The student, with their parent(s), then sit down for a consultation with Clayborne’s Test Prep Coordinator to lay out the best plan for success.  Students and parents should leave the consultation with a target test date, clear goal scores, and a better understanding of the process involved in attaining these goals.  

Test Preparation- After the diagnostic stage, individual tutoring sessions begin – again, catered to each student’s scheduling needs. Students typically meet one to three times per week for one to two hours and cover fundamentals, timed practice, and full-length proctored tests. Clayborne's Tutors support students every step of the way, watching for patterns in the student's testing behavior and adapting each session to the student's immediate needs. Clayborne’s robust curriculum and expert tutors create a proven, personalized approach to test preparation. 

Need a Boost Right Before the Test?

In order to reassure students of their abilities, the week before each SAT, Clayborne offers refresher classes. No matter your level of preparedness, you'll find these sessions helpful. Come de-stress with other students, just like you.

These courses are designed to accelerate students confidently into the test.

They do so by:
– reviewing the basic format and strategies of the test;
– working through notably difficult questions and common mistakes;
– giving students chances to interact and exchange ideas;
– discussing anxiety relief; and,
– reviewing pre-test logistics.

These classes are 2, two-hour courses the week before each test, taught by two of our Staff Tutors: one for SAT Math, and one for SAT Verbal.

Please contact us or check this site as the test date approaches; we will update it regularly with the upcoming refresher classes dates.

“This was such a positive experience after I had my son take a SAT prep course at a big commercial outfit. They used a one-program-fits-all approach and it did not work out well for him. The individually tailored program at Clayborne clearly worked.”
