Hundreds of Students Receive SAT Tips and Strategies in Free SAT Class Demo

 

Method Test Prep, experienced SAT prep and ACT prep provider, creates special summer training session for juniors and seniors.

 

Students are always looking for something that pairs the convenience of studying from a book in their own room with the interactivity and guidance of working with an instructor. As hundreds of students learned this month, Method Test Prep's online classes provide a convenient solution, without the cost of a traditional private tutor.

Over the last two weeks Elliot Bock, Director of Online Classes, and Evan Wessler, Vice President of Education, hosted free webinars to demonstrate Method Test Prep's online teacher-led prep courses. The webinars were the best-attended demonstrations Method Test Prep has held thus far, drawing over 200 students combined for 45-minute interactive web classes held by each Mr. Bock and Mr. Wessler.

During the presentation, Mr. Bock and Mr. Wessler used a virtual whiteboard, interactive chat, and question polling to demonstrate the Method Test Prep online test prep program. The two reviewed important mathematics and writing section strategies by working through several problems and question types with the student attendees.

Students were able to access the lessons from their own computers, eliminating one the major barriers to traditional test prep classes. Without having to deal with class disruptions or large class sizes, students were able to focus on the problem in front of them and feel like the instructor was speaking directly to each individual.

"I really liked how it felt more one-on-one than being in an actual SAT class with only one teacher and about 20 students," said one student after attending the class.

Other student responded that it was a "Great webinar!" and commented: "Thanks for tonight's session, very helpful!"

Through its upcoming web SAT classes and ACT classes, Method Test Prep looks forward to showing students how they can experience efficient, comprehensive, cost-effective prep from experienced instructors. Method Test Prep anticipates making Monday’s session a regular event in order to help more students excel.

Method Test Prep frequently offers webinars for parents, teachers and students alike to introduce them to Method Test Prep’s unique ACT and SAT test prep approach.

In addition to the free classes, Method Test Prep also offers 14 hours of instruction for $200. Both ACT and SAT test prep classes are available. For more information, on the upcoming SAT and ACT classes visit the website.
