New Online SAT Prep Classes for High School Students Announced

Dr. Mary Smyth is offering her popular SAT Prep Matters classes online through the Hutchinson Center this winter/spring.

Online SAT Prep Matters and SAT Boot Camp are SAT prep courses designed for college-bound high school sophomores and juniors who plan to take the SAT test on paper before the SAT switches to a digital platform.

The SAT is changing to a digital test available online beginning in the spring of 2024. The new test will require a whole new approach to studying and practicing. The test will be guided by an interactive artificial intelligence response to questions answered incorrectly. Getting too many questions wrong will result in the program limiting how high a score a student can obtain.

Current sophomores can study and take the paper test up through the fall of 2023. With the uncertainty of how the new test will work, now is a good time to take the SAT and get a score that can be used in college admissions.

Smyth is offering five sessions of SAT Prep classes in early 2023, Prep Matters, which meets once a week over four weeks and Boot Camps, which meet for four consecutive days during school vacation weeks.

Dr. Mary Smyth’s SAT Boot Camp has been used successfully to prepare students to take the SAT for many years. Students attend class every day during a school vacation week and practice taking short sections of the test. Dr. Smyth teaches test strategy and topics in the content areas of math, reading and grammar. Students are relaxed and well-rested, so they are able to absorb the lessons and practice at their best. Many students have benefitted from participating in this format of SAT prep.

Course instructor Mary Smyth, M.D., believes that students need to understand the concepts, not just cram at the last minute in order to pass a test. Smyth has tutored students for the ACTs, AP Calculus, SATs, and SAT subject tests for fifteen years.

Under Smyth’s tutelage, and through their own hard work, most of Smyth’s students have improved their SAT scores by 100-200 points.
