SAT Test Day

June 6th, 2015

Getting ready for SAT test day is easy and a little preparation can make all the difference in your score. Outside of one-on-one test preparation, there a few things you can do the day before and the week leading up to your test to maximize your score.

The Week Before

Go over your diagnostic practice tests with your tutor to see if there are any glaring errors or mistakes that you keep repeating. Do you always fall for the trap answer because it is listed first? Do you continue to answer math problems even when you venture into the sections that are too difficult for you? All these little mistakes can add up and cost you big points on the SAT Test Day.

⌚SAT Test DayThe Night Before

Make sure you get a great night’s sleep the night before SAT Test Day! Do not drink any caffeinated tea or beverages late in the day. If you go out with your friends, make sure you are home at a reasonable hour and relaxed enough to get some sleep. Do not do any practice tests or practice problems the day before your test. You will burn yourself out and not do as well on the real thing.


 SAT Test DayThe Day Of

Make sure you eat a big, healthy breakfast. Bring a snack for the break they will give you. Bring two calculators in case one of yours has a freak accident and breaks in the middle of the test. Make sure that your bring all the materials that they tell you to have, including any sort of print out and identification. It would be horrible to get there and not be allowed to take the test. Most of all, be confident and you will do great!

Fall SAT Class and Free Diags!

August 8th, 2012

Well, this is it, summer is almost over! It’s time to set those alarm clocks, get your notebooks ready, and get back in to the swing of the school year. Here at the Hut we are preparing for an influx of students who need a little extra help during the school year. For high school students, we are offering an SAT prep course as well as free diagnostic tests to get ready for this all-important testing season! To get the process started, just sign up for one of our “diags”, we’ll score it and schedule a meeting to go over the results and discuss college and training options. The class is 7 weeks long, and meets from 9/18 until 11/1. We cap it at a maximum of ten students for more student/teacher contact, and it will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-9 pm. This means that each student will get 28 hours of extra preparation! The total cost of the course is $895, but if you sign up by 8/31, we will discount the price by $100. That means it will only be $795 for 28 hours of class! We will also be offering diagnostic tests on four Saturdays: 9/8, 9/29, 10/13, and 10/27 at 8 am. These tests will give us an initial score to improve upon, and track the progress each student makes. It will also give the students a good sense of the timing of the test, and come test day, minimize their anxiety. Let us give you a helping hand in tackling this important test!
