SAT Summer Boot Camp: Overcoming the Math Section
Shayna Hume graduated from the University of Miami in 2018 with her B.S. in aerospace engineering, but originally hails from Metro D.C. where she was homeschooled and then attended Thomas Jefferson High School of Science and Technology in Alexandria, VA. She’s been a tutor since high school, and has taught individuals and online classrooms many times before. Now, while she is working on her Ph.D. at the University of Colorado, Boulder, she’s opening up summer boot camps to help students conquer their fear of the SAT in 10 short weeks. While the courses are going to be an intensive to improve students’ scores, no prior experience studying for the SAT is needed and Shayna loves working with students at all levels. Finally, while yes – Shayna has the SAT scores to boast for teaching this kind of course – it’s her goal to make sure that students gain skills out of these courses that will take them far beyond standardized testing. See you this summer!
Friday, 11am-12:30pm EST
For many students, math is the hardest part of the SAT. However, even for students who aren’t going into STEM fields, a high score on the math can help to set them apart in the applications process. In this course, students will be exposed to all core concepts from the SAT, laid out in a simple, sequential manner. All students will have the opportunity to interact with the instructor during “office hours” following class, and by the end of the course, the students will have notes set to review in the months and weeks prior to their test date. Homework will be given weekly, and students will be given access to extra materials to continue practicing beyond the course.
Note: No grades will be given, although parents may opt in to getting summaries of student performance.
