Get Ready To Sit For The SAT

My students need a set of 24 SAT prep books.

  • $550 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The stress and anxiety!! All those words !! Saturday morning in a large room with a pencil! Students who will apply to a four year university must take either the SAT or the ACT exam. Most of my students will take the SAT.

The students are very motivated and they want to go to college.

They want to do well and are willing to work hard. Most are English learners and will be first generation college students. Their parents cannot afford to enroll them into an expensive SAT Prep course so they must prepare on their own.

My Project

The SAT Study Guides will help students prepare for the critical reasoning and mathematics portions of the SAT exams. They will prepare the students by providing a review of the content to be tested and by providing an overview of important test day strategies.

Whether or not we agree with the importance placed upon test results, they matter.

My students are fabulous and I know that they can do well with practice and confidence. Please help by providing an opportunity for them to borrow SAT prep books.

Grades 9-12
