Last week, we kicked off the 2011 spring writing season with a two-hour Score on the SAT essay class at Andover High School.
The students did a great job; we are reading the essays and marking them up so our students can see their strengths and find out which areas need improvement. They will be armed with tools to continue practicing timed writing tests.
At Wow, we listen to our customers. While we have always offered private coaching for students preparing for college entrance exams, we started teaching ACT and SAT writing prep in the classroom after receiving calls from anxious parents who were disappointed with their children’s writing scores on these exams.
There is only one solution: Practice.
Students can — and should — practice doing timed writing assignments before taking the ACT or SAT. You need to learn how to read a prompt, analyze it, develop a thesis and defend it — all within 25 or 30 minutes. What’s more, you need to write clear sentences with proper grammar and spelling. The readers don’t care what position you take; they just want you to take one (and offer a counter-argument for some more points!) Why wouldn’t you practice?
Wow’s Ace the ACT and Score on the SAT writing prep classes can enhance what you’ve learned in your high school language arts classroom. We offer our classes close to the dates of the exams. Here’s the latest line up:
