A prep class is always a great choice for struggling students to come up with their own study plan and who learn better by having an expert teacher clearly explain difficult problems and concepts to them. SAT/ACT courses can be wonderfully helpful for students who prefer following the main curriculum and having a teacher explain tricky concepts and answer questions about the test.
This blog will go over the six key qualities that make for a great SAT/ACT prep class.
#1: Small Class Size
One important sign of a good SAT/ACT prep class is how small it is, unlike large classes at school. Fewer students in a class mean more opportunities for personal attention and guidance from the teacher in each lesson. All students will be able to receive one-on-one help from the teacher with any concepts or strategies they’re struggling with or with any questions they might have about the exam as a whole.
Additionally, a smaller class size gives students more time to discuss ideas as a group.
Basically, whether students struggle with math or vocab, an SAT/ACT prep class with a score guarantee means that they’re going to learn how they can improve their weak spots to get the score they want on test day.
#6: Reviews From Former Students
The final indication of a great ACT or SAT prep course is whether it has positive reviews from real students who’ve taken the class. These reviews can (and should) tell a few important details. We recommend first checking out the testimonials for a prep class students are considering. These are normally found on the website. As an example, here are our testimonials for our online SAT/ACT classes.
Students should then do some research on the class by looking at its (or the prep company’s) rating on Google and seeing what former students have written about it.
If students happen to know anyone who took an ACT or SAT prep class, it’s always a good idea to try to reach out to them and ask whether they thought the class was worth it or not.
These are just general guidelines for what makes a good SAT/ACT prep class. Ultimately, though, to find the best, students will need to consider how they normally learn best, what kind of class size they prefer, and their budget.
Once all this is done, the student is ready to enroll in a test prep class and the score they need! We hope this helps students in narrowing down their SAT/ACT prep classes. If you need any further assistance, feel free to reach out by filling out the student’s assistance form.
