Expectations

What ASI Expects From The Student:

The ASI method is a process, not rote memorization. You must hone the test taking skills being taught by practicing and mastering the method. This is achieved through practice tests and assigned homework. It is only by completing these assignments that you can know what has been mastered and what has not. At this time, mistakes can be recognized and corrected with the help of an instructor. The assignments are designed to force
students to make the most common mistakes that are often made on the SAT, driving home lessons they will never forget. Better these mistakes are made with us than on the SAT test day.


What ASI Expects From The Parent:

After the instructor leaves, you should encourage your child to continue to practice actual SAT tests from the 10 Real SATs book as they have been taught. The final score your student can achieve will be directly proportionate to the amount of practice time he or she puts into these practices. We urge the parent to encourage the student to complete all assigned homework on time and to continue the SAT practice tests after the instructor has gone.


What Can You Expect From ASI?


A Highly Qualified Teaching Staff:
We take great pride in our teachers. All are certified teachers with many years of classroom experience and the highest qualifications. They complete a rigorous training program and teaching internship before teaching our courses.

Comprehensive Course Materials:
In addition to our exclusive ASI manual, we have carefully selected a complete range of preparatory books and study companions. We provide everything needed to prepare for the SAT. Please read about the course materials provided to every ASI student.

Time Management Strategy:
Because the SAT is a timed test, speed is as important as accuracy on test day. The student only has a limited time during which to earn as many points as possible. It is crucial for a student to develop an efficient time management strategy for maximizing speed and personal strengths. During the course, we will help each student to recognize these factors and adapt individual strategies for continuing improvement.

Timed Practice Testing :
As part of the ASI course, students will complete a timed SAT practice test to determine their baseline score. Each section of the test is corrected and
explained in the context of the ASI method. By completing an entire SAT test together, students learn the best strategies for continuing to practice on their own.

Extra Help And Personal Attention:
Our interactive approach to learning doesn't stop at the classroom door. Students are encouraged to set up time for extra help with their specific needs outside of scheduled class times. During the duration of their stay, our teachers are available to the students.

Post Course Follow-up Facility :
Just as our teachers are available outside of class hours, they continue to be available after the course is over and they've returned home. Like any skills, those we teach must be practiced in order to be perfected. Students will learn how to practice most efficiently during their course time, but when inevitable questions arise they are not on their own. Even after the course is over, one-on-one e-mail support will still be there at students continue to hone their SAT skills.
