SAT Reading Content
The SAT Reading section tests a student's ability to synthesize and understand information presented in reading excerpts. Questions are based on evidence from the passages, and can include analysis on the main idea, tone, and
specific facts as stated in the selections.
SAT Reading Strategy
The key to scoring high on the SAT Reading section is to understand that the questions are evidence based, and must be supported by the passage. This requires a mind shift from typical high school English exams, so we teach strategies specific to the SAT.

Leo is the absolute best...from my daughter's first lesson he has been responsive, professional, and most importantly, effective, in every interaction. He's taught her both content and strategies that have made math easier to understand. He really connects with his students and is very friendly and encouraging. I was blown away when she scored a 1400 on her first practice test with him after a couple sessions. This was a 300 point increase from her PSAT scores. I will definitely be using Leo for my freshman and have recommended him to all my friends.
SAT Writing Content
The SAT Writing section tests English grammar rules, conventions, and writing standards. Students may see questions on punctuation, sentence structure, and paragraph organization. For this reason, we teach proper English grammar and writing best practices.
SAT Writing Strategy
We show students how to identify which
grammar rules are being tested, and how to select the best answer choice. We work on techniques including "Vertical Scanning," and help students with time management to optimize every minute of the test.

Leo was an excellent SAT tutor for my daughter. She got a perfect 800 on Math! Leo immediately connected with my daughter, was very encouraging and kept her engaged throughout the study process. He developed a reasonable weekly study plan that worked great for her. He is very knowledgeable on what material and resources to use and in providing effective exam and study strategies. He was very flexible, easy to reach and sent me weekly updates on the study progress. Great experience, I highly recommend him.
SAT Essay Content
The SAT Essay question on every test is always the same - students are asked to write a coherent essay explaining how the author of the prompt builds his/her argument. Unlike standard high school English essays, the SAT Essay is not based on opinion or summary.
SAT Essay Strategy
The best way to prepare for the essay is to develop a template in advance. We help students generate examples and sentences ahead of time. Once the structure is in place, students are able to fill in the blanks as they relate to their specific prompt.
I contacted Leo with just a few weeks to go before the October SAT to help raise my son's score in the English section. He was super responsive and easy to schedule. He developed a productive relationship with my son quickly and after a handful of sessions was able to raise his score 100 points in the English. I would honestly recommend Leo to anyone looking for a tutor for the SAT. He is a joy to work with and delivers results.
