Just wanted to let you know that (student) scored 130 points higher on his math section this time around on the SAT, I'm sure because of the help you gave him. He made a 690, up from a 560, and so now his reading-math SAT is 1310. Thanks so very much for your wonderful work with him! We really appreciate it. You opened the doors for him at colleges that might have been closed before.

The obvious implications: your child must score far above the state average on the SAT should he or she wish to attend one of North Carolina's premiere colleges or universities.
Her (student)'s score went up 60 points in math and verbal.

The SAT changed in 2005! We can teach you how to prepare for this important exam. The three areas of focus for this three hour, 45 minute exam:
You will be tested on concepts up to and including Algebra II. You
will be expected to know geometry, statistics, simple arithmetic,
probability and exponential growth. Recently, there has been more
emphasis upon tangent lines, exponents and linear functions. Four
function calculators are now permitted.
There is a section involving grammatical multiple choice, reading
comprehension and questions dealing with sentence construction.
Students also are required to write an essay on a specific topic.
Reading (formerly Verbal): Focuses upon completion
of sentences, reading comprehension and vocabulary. There are short
and long reading passages. Test takers are asked to select the "most"
correct idea concerning a word, idea or phrase in the passage.
(Student) got a "760" on his math score! Thank you very much for your work with him. I am certain it helped.
