UAE Parents Must Ask SAT Tutors About…
Tutor must do an initial diagnostic. This creates accountability and pressure on tutor to improve your child. Without a diagnostic, you are telling the tutor you will accept any result. The diagnostic should be an authentic SAT test. Nothing else is valid. Especially short ones
Expected Score improvement
Based on the diagnostic, what is tutor’s estimate of score improvement. Anything above 200 needs more investigation. Dont accept any number just like that
Plan For Weak Math
Test prep is not the time to learn Math. There is not enough time. How will tutor get the Math score up? Any improvement above 100 points needs extra work. How will the tutor provide this time?
New SAT Essay requires advance writing skills. We doubt many old SAT tutors even have these themselves. The SAT essay is optional but already many universities are making it mandatory. This alone may effect your university admission chances
Only limited material is available from Collegeboard for new SAT. An online strategy needs to be added. Does the tutor have one?
