Online review tools to help you perform at your peak!

The SAT Summer Institute includes online tools to help you perform at your peak on exam day. Four online review sessions are held in the weeks leading up to the fall SAT exam dates. Online office hours provide a convenient way for students to address specific questions or concerns that they may have.  Students need only have high speed access to the internet, speakers, and Adobe Flash Player to participate in the online sessions – no additional software is required.

The interactive one hour online review sessions allow students to participate and ask questions of our expert test prep instructors. The live online review sessions are also recorded - students can still benefit even if their schedule doesn’t allow live participation. Review sessions will follow the schedule of the Summer Institute.

Online office hours are free form meetings open to any student in an SAT Summer Institute. Instructors will be on hand 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.
