SAT Methodology

University Crossroads prepares students to take the SAT with tutoring and resources. The classes are open to all high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors including those in public, private, and charter schools as well as those home-schooled. With our 3.5 hour sessions, we promote the following methodology: 

 The Students

  • Replace aptitude with hard work as a measure of success (effort-based learning)
  • Set goals and evaluate process 
  • Acknowledge accomplishments
  • Engage in thinking and problem-solving skills, especially around major concepts
  • Question student-to-student, probe, use evidence and knowledge to develop ideas
  • Present, model and discuss authentic learning 

The Instructors 

  • Keep the discussion focused and intellectually responsible 
  • Stimulate the discussion with probing questions 
  • Draw as many students as possible into the discussion 
  • Summarize what has and what has not been dealt with and/or resolved
