Online office hours are free-form meetings open to any student in an SAT Summer Institute. Instructors will be available to answer any questions that you might have. The sessions are “drop-in” sessions and are student-directed, meaning that there will not be a planned presentation each session. Our instructors will answer questions and work through problems in the order that they are received.
Online Review System Requirements: The Live-Online SAT sessions are offered online using a free Adobe Connect browser plug-in. All you need is a high speed internet connection, speakers, and Adobe Flash Player, which can also be downloaded for free.
Note: The Adobe Connect plug-in, microphone, and camera are not required or used in the delivery of the online review sessions.
Who Should Take This Course?
The SAT Summer Institute is ideal for students that need an intensive preparation program during the summer. This one-week institute is held over four consecutive weekdays and requires students to continue to practice their skills in the weeks and months leading up to their fall test date. Students are expected to actively participate in class.
Students generally take the SAT during their junior year of high school. This course is ideal for rising juniors that may be taking the test for the first time, for those high school students that have already taken the exam but wish to improve their score, and those younger students who are curious about the recent changes to the format of the SAT.
