VSA Future’s Educational Seminar on SAT Preparedness

Common struggles of students when it comes to SAT:

  • Running out of time.
  • Completing the reading passages with enough time left.
  • Not being able to choose between two choices on the reading comprehension questions.
  • Struggling with drawing extra lines to answer geometry questions.
  • Practicing on their own.

The Logical SAT Approach: Passage Ownership and Copyediting in English

Patryk’s Technique (Reading Section):

  • Put notes in the margins.
  • Use your own symbol system to isolate key information for faster accessibility in case you need to go back and take a look at it when answering the questions. This technique saves time in looking for the relevant information.
  • Simultaneous learning and mastery to apply directly to the questions. Learn to filter out unnecessary information.
  • When browsing the questions, identify leading words and line references.
  • In the process of elimination, find a reason to expel the choice from the pool of choices, not to keep an answer a choice.
  • Isolate the key verbs to understand what is being asked.
  • Knock out paired questions at the same time.
  • When the correct answer emerges, pick it and move on quickly to save time.

Patryk’s Technique (Writing Section):

  • Be precise, concise, and consistent when writing.
  • Understand how “less is more” in communication.
  • Fill in grammar holes for a more confident foundation of knowledge.
  • Pay close attention to conjunctions, adverbs, and transitional phrases.
  • Pay attention to subject-verb agreement, dependent and independent clauses, as well as punctuations for enhancing clarity.

The Logical SAT Approach: Nurturing Unique Mathematical Minds

  • Algebra: Focuses on mastery of linear equations and systems
  • Problem solving and data analysis: Ask for fluency in quantitative skills
  • Advanced Math: Requires manipulation of complex equations
