What are the advantages of Seacoast Test Prep’s SAT course curriculum?
Our Digital SAT prep small group classes and private tutoring classes come complete with a proprietary workbook (450+ pages) and state of the art online system that tracks homework progress, analyzes practice test results, and offers for every workbook test-style problem a video solution online. Workbook modules are “concept-centric” vs. “test-centric” for greater flexibility for the student. The lesson format allows for repetition of concept that you can’t get from using just bluebook tests. Students receive 12 months of access to all of our proprietary online resources. The resources we offer and the technology we utilize rival the big national brands, but at an affordable rate–in fact, 40% less than well-known competitors.
How long have you been in business?
Seacoast Test Prep was formed in February 2016, when Jared Rand, Founder of the Knowledge Roundtable, transferred the administration of the SAT class component of the company to Paul and Stephanie, both of whom, respectively, were the math and verbal instructors of the Knowledge Roundtable’s SAT group classes since the summer of 2013. Rand’s course of study and graduation from Harvard’s MBA program in the spring of 2016, led to the decision to transfer the operation of the Exeter-based classes to his instructors. Seacoast Test Prep aims to retain the same high quality instructional methods and principles for coaching students to raise their scores for the new SAT.
Is your pricing competitive?
Yes, affordable yet premium quality test prep is at the heart of Seacoast Test Prep’s operating principle. Our rates are substantially lower than several national brands, without compromising classroom hours or workbook suite quality. Seacoast Test Prep’s value additionally lies in instructor experience: Stephanie and Paul bring a combined quarter century of SAT tutoring experience in small group and individual tutoring.
