Get an SAT tutor!
It's the most difficult and challenging standardized test high school students have to take to gain admission to the college of their choice.
How We Do SAT Tutoring
Our SAT tutors are experts. They will prepare you for everything.
- 12 Sessions
Students will take timed practice exams as we proceed through the tutoring sessions. We will analyze your results to find your weaknesses. Then assign drills to address them until your confidence overcomes the hurdles.
We will monitor improvement in real time. When you take the actual exam, we will already know what score to expect!
The Truth About The Sat
We get it. When it comes to the SAT you don’t like it. We don’t like it. (Your student probably doesn’t like it.)
We call it “math with a gun to your head.” The exam asks you to solve problems quickly. It even tries to trick you!
The only Way to study
Our preferred method to teach mathematics involves taking our time. We like peeling back the layers. Really understanding the depth of the problem.
However it’s very important to us at Alexander Tutoring that you get into the college of your dreams. Your SAT score is a big part of that. In fact, no amount of time and effort will have more of an effect on the college you go to than what you put into this very important score.
Little Things Matter
Think about it, 10 hours studying could take your score from a 1200 to a 1400! That makes you eligible for top tier colleges! That’s why we designed the SAT master class tutoring sessions, to help you get there.
You will be matched with an expert SAT tutor that knows all the tricks the exam will throw at you. Remember how we said, that the exam tries to trick you? Here is how:
Often there will be a seemingly obvious way to solve a problem. The answer you would get is in the answer set. Yet it’s not the right answer. It’s a trick! You will know what to do after our Master Class and will not be intimidated!

His fascination with physics and mathematics began in High School. It's been a large part of who he is ever since.

Angelique has had two passions both of which she has been lucky enough to study and work in professionally.
The first is teaching mathematics. The second is Opera.

SAT or ACT?
- You should take timed practice exams of both and see which one you do better on.
- The advantage to the ACT is the math questions are more straight forward with less tricks.
- The SAT has harder problems and more trick questions.
- However the ACT has a science section that the SAT does not have, so you have to prepare for that as well.
- Students with learning differences usually tend to do better on the ACT.
- Students that really like and excel in math tend to do better on the SAT.
- However you won’t know for sure until you take a timed practice exam of each under the direction of your SAT tutor. All students should do this.
