How to Select the Best SAT Prep Course

SAT preparatory programs appear in schools across America, but they vary in quality and in the level of personal attention offered. So how can a student select the best possible SAT prep courses for their individual needs. A personalized experience from C2 Education ensures students are thoroughly prepared to maximize their score.

Top 3 Things to Look for in an SAT Prep Course

The goal of an SAT prep course is to prepare students for the official exam so that there are no surprises the day of the test. An SAT prep course can also help refresh students on the material they have learned in their high school classes that they will likely be tested on during the exam. But not all SAT prep courses are created equal.

These are the top three things students should look for in an SAT prep course to ensure it is the best fit for them.

1. Superior tutors. An SAT prep course is only as strong as the tutors teaching the material. Tutors should not only be knowledgeable in the subjects they are teaching, but should be able to effectively communicate ideas and feedback to students. 

The tutors at C2 Education are experts in their fields and must undergo a rigorous interview process to even be considered for a position at C2 Education. In fact, only 2% of all tutor applicants are accepted. C2 Education tutors are more than just tutors — they are mentors who help guide students through their academic careers from elementary and middle school to high school and college prep.

2. An understanding of the student's learning style. A one-size-fits-all approach to learning is rarely valuable to students, and the best SAT prep course takes that into account and is flexible enough to meet each student's specific learning style, strengths, and weaknesses. 

Every program at C2 Education is designed to meet the individual needs of each student. Before a student even begins the first tutoring session, he or she takes a diagnostic test which highlights the subjects in which extra help or attention is needed. 

3. A great reputation. Finding the best SAT prep course is sometimes as easy as doing a little bit of research. Does an organization have a low satisfactory rate? Skip them!

At C2 Education, we take our reputation very seriously and strive to deliver only the best services to our students. But don't just take our word for it. In an online review of our services one student states, "C2 truly was a great experience in all aspects. Not only did it enable me to attain my desired SAT scores, but it also gave me great confidence going into college. The overall atmosphere is friendly and helpful, while still being intellectually rigorous."

Though these are the top three things students should look for in the best SAT prep course, this list is not exhaustive. Just as students would prepare for a big test, they too should do the research to find the tutoring programs best for their learning needs. It is also important to note that the SAT is changing in 2016. The following chart will give students a better idea of what to expect from the new SAT and how it differs from the SAT of previous years.

The value of a good education is something most of our parents instill in us from a very early age, and for good reason. College graduates go on to earn almost one million dollars more than non-college graduates over the course of their career. And with numbers like that, it's no surprise that students are stepping up and making responsible choices for their future. But collegiate admissions are getting tougher and tougher and demand near perfection. So where do students turn when they want to make the right choice for their future. The answer is C2 Education, the world's greatest tutoring network, featuring 120 centers nationwide and serving over 25,000 students and families each year. C2 Education is truly the solution for your child's future.
