SAT Writing Tutors

Tavistock Tutors offer SAT writing tutors in the London area. Writing forms 1/3 of the SAT exam, which itself forms the basis of most US college admissions decisions. It is made up of multiple-choice questions, which focus on sentence and paragraph improvement and error spotting, followed by a brief essay usually on a philosophical topic. It is designed to test a students essay writing skills as well as spelling, grammar, planning and critical thinking. Different students will have strengths and weaknesses in different areas of the SAT. However, with competition for places being so intense a student cannot afford to have a weaker suit. Tavistock Tutors believe that any weakness can become strengths with the right help.
 
The SAT essay requires a student to develop and support a point of view with appropriate evidence in a good standard of written English, all within 25 minutes. While the rest of the test requires a student to improve either paragraphs or sentences. This means a student needs a good vocabulary, and a clear knowledge of effective sentence and paragraph structure, something which many students struggle with in the era of spell check. Our tutors will be able to pass on to you, little known knowledge about what SAT markers are looking for, to allow you to practise as effectively as possible.
 
We interview all our prospective tutors. This allows us to be sure they have the passion as well as the ability that a Tavistock Tutor needs. In addition to this, it allows us to gather detailed knowledge of their strengths. This means that when you contact us, our educational consultants can use their experience and this knowledge, to send you a tutor that is a perfect match.
 
What makes our tutors great is that they can quickly identify problems, and solve them in a way that their student can understand and remember. In addition to this, their lessons are tailored to their students and designed to give them both the tools and confidence to do well. All of this is a recipe for rapid achievement and progress from day one.
