Preparing for Success
We at Ivy Bound realize that an SAT tutoring course represents a serious investment of time, energy, and financial resources. As private educators, it is our mission to see that both you and your child get as great a return on that investment as is possible. With that end in mind, we'd like to make a few suggestions.
Please be diligent about Home Study assignments. Our teaching time presents and reinforces every strategy we know for SAT success, but this is still not enough to MASTER them. Home Study is assigned and targeted for a reason: it allows students to apply concepts learned in the last lesson to a variety of problems. Without this practice, students may think they understand a concept, but falter when it comes time to apply it. We recommend at least one hour of Home Study between meetings with an instructor, and preferably two hours. (The Home Study problems are assigned in the first pages of the Ivy Bound binder.) In addition, most students should devote 10 minutes a day to vocabulary study.
