New Tampa SAT Student Rocks 100 Point Gain on Writing Section

Posted on 27th April 2010 in Tampa SAT Preparation

I have been working with a New Tampa SAT student to help her improve her performance on the writing section. We just did a test to benchmark our progress against the writing scores on the test that she took at our first session.

Wow!

She improved her SAT writing score 100 points!

Working one-on-one with me, she learned how to recognize the errors that are frequently tested in the improving sentences and recognizing sentence errors sections.

We have a long time to go before she takes the SAT in October, but I feel great about her chances to dramatically improve her SAT writing score.

If your son or daughter plans to take the SAT in October and would like help in designing a study program, call New Tampa SAT Tutor Eric Anderson at 813.787.8959 or email him at Tampa tutor at Tampa bay dot rr dot com. Eric tutors the reading and writing portions of the SAT.

Private SAT Tutor in Wesley Chapel, Florida

Posted on 21st April 2010 in Tampa SAT Preparation

I was talking to a pair of students who I am tutoring about why they choose to get private SAT Tutoring in New Tampa.

Both are enrolled in an SAT prep course given by one of the larger SAT test prep companies. They said that some concepts were covered too quickly and that they felt self-conscious about holding up the rest of the class with questions.

Here are a few of the advantages of one-on-one or small group private tutoring:

  • Your student sets the pace;
  • Your student can target areas that need the most work and have the greatest potential for improvement;
  • Your SAT tutoring sessions take place where your student is most comfortable — (at home or at the New Tampa library or at Starbucks);
  • You save travel time by not having to take him or her to a test center;
  • You get an outstanding price for a degreed tutor because we do not have the overhead of a tutoring center;
  • You do not sign a contract or pay for SAT tutoring ahead of time. No contracts!

If your student is planning on taking the SAT next fall and needs help with Critical Reading, SAT writing or SAT math, call Eric at 813.787.8959. I tutor students of all ability levels in writing and reading and can refer you to Tampa’s best SAT math tutor .

Tampa Writing Tutor Gets Good News: Student Scores A on Research Paper

Posted on 7th April 2010 in English Tutor Success Stories

One of the students who came to me a few weeks ago for help with APA style for a research paper received exciting news today.

He and I had spent some time reviewing the teacher’s AP style handout and the latest edition of the APA Style Manual to make sure that he understood how to format the paper.

He called to tell me that he had received one of the best grades in his class.

Tampa SAT Tutor Gets Good News: Student Hits 700 on Reading

Posted on 6th April 2010 in English Tutor Success Stories

One of my favorite Tampa SAT students has been working on improving her reading score. We had to do a little experimenting to find the methods which work the best for her for sentence completions and for long reading passages.

Yesterday, we met and did a full SAT reading test for practice, and she rocked it!

I always feel happy when a student makes the kind of strides that she has. I left our SAT tutoring session feeling uplifted because I know that she is going to score higher on both reading and writing when she takes the SAT in May.

If you need help preparing for the math sections, I can refer you to an excellent New Tampa private SAT math tutor.
