At DuPree College Prep, we have been helping students prepare for college entrance exams since 2004. Our class has an average improvement of 210 points on the three parts, serious students often find their scores increase 300 points or more, and the all-time valedictorian’s score increased 500 points! One student, after completing the course, made perfect scores on both the SAT and ACT. The individualized tutoring means the course is tailored for your testing style and goals.
All Pre-Tests, Post-Tests, class examples, and homework questions come from real SAT Tests prepared by the College Board to give students maximum exposure to the types of questions they will see on test day.
Classes meet six times in a group setting; including one Pre-Test, one Post-Test, and three lecture sessions. There is also a one hour Post-Test group review session right before the real SAT test after the classes are completed.
Students also meet one-on-one with tutors for four one-hour sessions to review homework. One-on-one sessions are taught by a specialist in math and grammar and a specialist in critical reading and essay writing.
During the class session, there is a two hour meeting with the student and parents and a planning specialist. At that meeting we will analyze pretest results, develop individualized test taking strategy, and answer college planning questions as time permits.
Please be sure to choose the prep class that is closest to your registered exam date. Prep classes are most effective when they are freshest. No exams occur in the summer, so no classes will occur during June and July. Because of the break in tests, summer courses are less effective, and we want you to have the full benefit of our class. The next test opportunity following summer will be the September ACT exam and the October SAT exam. Classes to prepare for these tests start early in August. Be sure to check your schedule of tournaments, competitions, plays, etc. for the entire year before deciding which test(s) to take.
To register for the class, please contact us and follow this link for the Registration Form. Once we receive the form and check, we will reserve your student’s seat in the class. Please be aware that the classes fill quickly, and your child’s seat is NOT reserved until we have these two items in hand. The cost of the course includes ten hours of group instruction, six hours of individual instruction, and three books. Please email us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org if your student plans to take the course, so we can make sure to have materials on hand for him or her.
Please be aware that you must register to take the test at www.collegeboard.com. We suggest you also sign up for the ACT test closest to the end of classes at www.actstudent.org because much of our preparation will apply to both tests, and one test often fits a student better than the other. Save each login and password; you’ll need them again.
The total cost of the Smart Steps Test Prep Course is $675. This includes ten hours of group instruction, six hours of individual coaching, and three books. Please download and fill out the Registration Form and send with your check, payable to Jean DuPree, to 1500 Woodland Way, Gainesville, GA 30501.
