Thanksgiving has come and gone, Winter Break is coming up. The semester has flown by with quizzes, tests, memorizing odd facts about Charlemagne and imaginary numbers. But before you can relax, you have to climb and conquer those treacherous peaks of your final examinations. Only then will you be able to rest and sleep long hours, forget about setting your alarm, and float into nothingness (with the exception of all that fun time hanging out with your friends and listening to Taylor Swift).
Man, if only you hadn’t procrastinated all semester on studying. You always tell yourself at the beginning of each semester, “This one will be different. I’m going to really buckle down this time and stick to a system.” But waves of assignments, obligations, and random distractions ensue. Where did the time all go? The last thing on your mind right now is the SAT. The test may be a whole year away. Or is it? It’s the end of Fall semester and you’re going to have to take them sooner than later. You’re going to have to work on and turn in college apps within the next 12 months. Okay, take a deep breath, it’s all going to be fine!
Here’s how you can have your cake and eat it too. This winter break, you can sleep in AND get your SAT prep on! Finals will be over, the new semester not yet begun. Not good at creating a system or scheduling your study time? No problem, we have the system and schedule created for you. Three weekday afternoons a week, from December 15 – January 9th, log on to an interactive class with an expert, 99th percentile SAT scorer (me!) – stay in your pajamas, eat a bowl of ice cream, no one will be the wiser. And the added bonus is that you complete the whole course in just 4 weeks (as opposed to our usual 6 week courses)! You won’t be distracted with the usual school work, APs, commute to class, etc. Another bonus? All our lessons are recorded, so you can rewatch each class for extra review! You’ll have a leg up over your classmates who wait until Spring to prep in the midst of all the other chaos.
