The Learning Edge tutors can work with you privately one-on-one in our Westport or Hamden offices, privately one-on-one via Skype online, or in a group course in our Westport of Hamden offices. Click on the buttons below to find out more information about each mode of tutorial!
When working with a Learning Edge tutor privately, you will typically meet for one hour each week in either the Hamden or the Westport office. If working with a tutor in preparation for the SAT or ACT, you will typically meet for 10 - 12 weeks ahead of your first test date.Private Tutoring Information
The Learning Edge group courses (ACT and SAT) consist of eleven 90-minute class sessions as well as three full-length proctored practice tests. These courses are capped at 10 students and take place in both our Hamden and Westport offices.
The Learning Edge also offers group courses for subject tests. Please contact Mark Anestis if you would like more information on these courses.Classroom Groups Information
When working with a Learning Edge tutor privately via Skype, the only difference from the in-person tutorial is that you will not be in the same room as the tutor.
You will still typically meet for one hour each week and if you are preparing for the SAT or ACT, you will typically meet for 10 - 12 weeks ahead of your first test date.
Vocab is the hardest part of the preparation for the SAT because it requires the most discipline. Starting off with a word a day is a good way to get your feet wet, and then you want to dive in and try to learn 3-4 new words each day. Start by following along with our word of the day on this site. Then step it up and download our vocabulary app THE DAILY WORD to really build up your vocabulary. The link for the app can be found near the bottom of this home page.
When writing your essay on the SAT, try to avoid the use of hackneyed phrases because some readers will punish you for using cliches.
