SAT Test Preparation

SAGE Tutelage SAT Test Preparation

Benjamin Franklin said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”  It is now a statistical fact that children with lower GPA scores (the typical B – C student) can out-score students who have consistently achieve higher marks (As and Bs), if the former reviews while the latter does not.  Here’s your chance to prepare for the SAT and succeed with SAGE Tutelage of Carrboro SAT Test Preparation — in Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Apex, and surrounding areas. If you are a student preparing to take the SAT test for college, S.A.G.E. Tutelage can help you achieve higher test scores.    THE FORMAT OF THIS TEST HAS RECENTLY CHANGED [SPRING 2016].  For more information, contact Miss Leah today at or call 919-542-2956.

Sage Tutelage’s ELITE Class

The ELITE CLASS is Miss Leah’s unique concept!  Since there are only 4, 5, or 6 seats available, each class member receives some individual attention.  These classes are becoming very popular not only because of the student-to-teacher ratio but also because of the pricing Sage Tutelage offers.  If you were to take a class such as this from a large test prep company, you would spend thousands of dollars.  Sage Tutelage offers the same top quality of those companies for a fraction of the cost.  AS THERE ARE ONLY SIX SEATS, PLEASE APPLY TO REGISTER FOR THIS CLASS.  You may call, send a text message, or email Miss Leah at  919-542-2956

How Is The SAT Test Structured?

The SAT test is composed of 4 mandatory sections plus 1 optional essay section.

The sections are as follows:  one Reading, one English Grammar/Language Arts, and two Math sections.  The optimal Essay section follows so that those who chose not to participate may leave the testing site.

These sections break down further:

The SAT Test — The Reading Sections

Every SAT test begins with the Reading Section.  The Reading section is made up of five Passages about three different subjects:  Fiction, Natural Science, and Social Science. The Fiction passage is an excerpt from either American or World Literature.  The writers of the SATs questions are looking to determine your ability to ferret out and comprehend important information within a broader context.  The thing to know is that SAT Test writers use the Fiction passage to pose questions about tone, symbolism, emotion, style. The Natural Science passages can be about anything from Astrophysics to Biology, from Species Categorization to Space Science, or from Medicine to Psychology.  There are two passages about this subject, one of which will contain a table or chart.  The Social Science passages may be an article or speech about History, Politics, Civics, Government, etc.  There are also two passages about this subject, one of which will contain a table or chart.

Each passage is followed by 10-11 multiple-choice questions. Two of these 10 or 11 are vocabulary-in-context questions and two (times two = four) are paired questions.  Five or six questions remain for general or specific issues within the passage.

The SAT Test — Writing / English Language Arts Sections

PLEASE EXCUSE THE INCOMPLETION OF THESE ARTICLES; THEY ARE BEING REWRITTEN FOR UPDATES.  There are five passages in the Writing section as well.  Each section is comprised of ?? multiple-choice questions relating to English Grammar and Usage and Rhetorical Skills.  The Writing section contains three distinct types of SAT questions:  SAT test takers are allowed 25 minutes to complete this section of the SAT.

The SAT — Math Sections

There are two SAT Math :  the first section contains ?? questions include questions on Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Plane Geometry, Coordinate Geometry, and a bit of Algebra II/Trigonometry.  For example you will find questions on numbers, counting, measurement,  simultaneous equations, area or surface area, perimeter or circumference of a circle, square, rectangular, triangle, solids (such as sphere, boxes, cubes, cones, etc.), slope, slope intercept, slope form, distance formula, quadratic equations, and more.

So ask yourself these two questions:

“Do I remember all my Math Subjects from 4th through 10th grade?”  (It’s dubious.)

“Would some Test Preparation benefit me?”  You bet!
