Still room for students in September SAT Essay preparation course online through PA Homeschoolers!
Karen Boyd, 8/8/2014

There is still room for more students in my Fall SAT Essay Preparation class. If your student will be taking the SAT this year or in 2015, he or she will be required to write an essay in 25 minutes on a topic given by the College Board.  This can be very intimidating to homeschool students, especially those who have already taken the SAT and scored poorly on the writing section.  Helping students learn what to expect is a significant benefit of the class.   The concepts that we focus on most have broader application than just the SAT.  I  teach the students to write a Thesis Support Essay and encourage analytical writing, and both of these skills will serve them well as they continue their educations.

The class begins on Sept. 1, 2014, lasts four weeks, and ends in time to take the October SAT exam.  However, many students  find it beneficial to take the course several months before they take the SAT.   While September 1st is a holiday, students who register a week before the class begins will get all of the assignments so they can do them ahead of time and take Labor Day off.  Registration ends on Aug. 30,  but if the class fills up it will end sooner. 

Some of you may have heard about the re-design of the College Board SAT exam, including making the essay optional-- however, those change will not take place until spring of 2016, and the essay will be required until then. Help your student be prepared!

We hope this very helpful course will be a good fit for your high school student!
