Brett will be teaching 4 advanced classes for the March 10th SAT.  2/1, 2/8, 2/15, and 3/1.

Have your scores stagnated around 1300 despite test preparation? Are you a strong student scoring in the 1300s or 1400s who wants to do better? Have you mastered the fundamentals of the SAT but are looking for preparation focused on how to conquer challenging test questions? Are you interested in elite schools that demand high SAT scores?

If so, these classes are intended for students like you. For these classes, I will assume that students have mastered basic content (E.g. Algebra I and II, and the fundamentals of grammar and comprehension). The focus will be on problem-solving and strategy.
Classes will be 75 minutes long and held on Thursday nights from 6:30 to 7:45 at the Center for Nursing in Guilderland.
