SAT and ACT Tutoring — Why Resource Room?

Many parents and students perseverate (SAT Word) over the many tutoring options offered for  SAT and ACT exam prep. Many people know a neighbor or friend of a friend that does exam prep, but not all providers have the qualifications, experience, and reputation of Resource Room. We have a track record of proven success, with hundreds of 5 Star Reviews from our two locations. We consistently raise student scores by an average of 225 points from their initial diagnostic assessment on the SAT Exam. Our classes are focused, intense, and effective. Taught by the owners, Joe and Sam, SAT and ACT instruction has become a core aspect of our business. With hundreds of students taking to Google to report the effectiveness of our program,  we pride ourselves on that connection with our students and we look forward to working with them each year. 

When should I take the SAT?

Many students are told that they must take the SAT in March or May of their Junior year of High School. While there are good reasons behind this advice, it may not be the right course of action for all students. With the introduction of the August SAT, many students are adjusting their schedule and front-load their SAT and ACT to the beginning of Junior, while others wait to start the process after Junior year is over. With SAT and ACT exams offered many times throughout the year,  there are many options as to when to sit for the exam. Many schools will now offer “in-school” SAT and ACT Exams. While this is an excellent service that provides a fantastic opportunity to both gain experience and save money on the registration fee, the timing may not always be perfect. That is why many students will sit for the SAT and ACT on regularly scheduled weekend administrations of the exams.  

What are Resource Room’s stats? Results-Driven SAT Prep.

Okay, we are going to get a little bit complicated here. The average score increase (based on over 125 students in March of 2019), which is the last large group we were able to teach before the impact of the pandemic  – was 225 points. The standard deviation from the mean was 68.5. A smaller standard deviation means that most students scored close to the mean of a 225-point increase with the lowest increase 155 points and a high end increase of 293 points. Every year we have students that increase their score over 300 points. This is possible with hard work, practice and repetition. Students whose scores are towards the lower end generally did not dedicate enough time to independent practice.
