Small Group Class Frequently Asked Questions:
All of our instructors have attended Ivy League schools and scored perfect or near perfect on their SATs.
Normally, if a student misses a class, we can provide the homework and materials for the missed class. We also offer the option to schedule a 2 hour private tutoring session at a 25% discount off the regular rate to cover the class material. If you are expecting to miss more than one class, please call us to discuss options.
The homework level varies from 2-5 hours per week. The amount of homework starts off modestly until all of the basic strategies have been covered, after which students are expected to practice and review in each section each week. Of course the course will be most effective if all of the homework is completed, but there is still an expectation of a great increase in knowledge about the test content without full completion of the entirety of the homework assigned.
We require payment for a course with your online registration in order to secure your space in the class.
We do offer partial refunds for cancellations made at least 3 weeks prior to the class start. 40% of the payment amount will be refunded for cancellations made at least 3 weeks in advance of official start date. If a student desires to transfer their registration to another class date, when possible this will be accommodated for a $75 fee.
After taking the test several times and achieving perfect scores, Rick has reverse engineered the types of questions and content for the SAT. A 122-page booklet of original material is provided to each student, basically a distillation of how a perfect scoring test expert would think about each type of question and the strategies used to most efficiently solve each type of problem.
After an initial review of questions from the homework, students are introduced to strategies and practice questions and given the RK Test Prep method of solution as well as items to consider concerning these. Students are encouraged to ask questions and given opportunities to practice each type of question and problem to promote mastery. Additionally students will complete timed practice test sections to simulate the testing environment and conditions.
Yes, all of the material covered applies equally to the PSAT as well as the SAT.
The recent redesign of the SAT has aligned the test content much more with the ACT, so at least 80% of the material and strategies will help prepare students for the ACT as well. In addition, students can sign up for a Quick Start ACT Add-on for $149 for a 2-hour class covering all of the differences between the test, ACT-specific strategies, as well as additional ACT practice material and a study plan.
We recommend students who desire additional instruction consider one-on-one tutoring to address areas that they need additional help with.
All of our classes strive to respond to the particular needs of our students. The instructors are trained to maximize class time according to the individual student’s strengths and weaknesses. That said, a student who desires instruction in only one section of the test would be encouraged to consider one-on-one tutoring as an alternative to best maximize their time.
