Use Spring Break Wisely – Prepare for the April 14th SAT

It’s Spring Break, and the last thing most students want to worry about is schoolwork.

However, the holiday break offers the perfect opportunity for students to prepare for the upcoming SAT.  The short reprieve from homework, sports and other extracurriculars allows students the breather necessary to really focus on SAT prep.

Advise your student to use the College Board’s Official SAT Study Guide to familiarize him or herself with the format and content of the test.  Make sure your student sets a timer and adheres to the time limits given in each section.

Once done your student should grade his test and take note of his strengths and weaknesses.

The book Up Your Score has a  fantastic section full of tips on improving your student’s writing score, and is worth the small investment for that section alone.  For students who are aiming high, books like Math 800 offer lessons and practice problems that cater to already excellent math students shooting for near perfect scores.

At Wellington Tutoring we are offering an SAT Prep option for students looking to make the most of their spring breaks.  We can give your student direction and resources tailored specifically to their strengths and weaknesses.

Don’t pass up this opportunity to set your student apart from the crowd.  Prepare for the SAT over Spring Break – and contact Wellington Tutoring for further tips or to set up an appointment!
