Course Description

See Reviews of Instructor Kathryn Gomes


This SAT math prep video course is the perfect balance of accountability and flexibility that so many home school students look for. The personalized study plan will keep you on track with daily assignments and manageable chunks of content. But work can be completed at your own pace with no live class to attend. It is a great option for the highly motivated home school student or those with a crowded schedule.

I added this self-paced section because so many students were struggling to make the live sessions work. Students provide information about their math background at the beginning of the class. Their study plan is developed based on their goal score and how much time they have allocated to study. Study plans are broken down into manageable chunks to help students study consistently.

The following elements are included in this course:

  • 3 months access to the course website
  • A 7-week study plan tailored to the student’s needs and goals
  • Over 30 original instructional videos that teach and review SAT math content

Note: My goal in offering this section is to be as flexible as possible. Please reach out to me with any concerns. If at all possible, I’ll tailor the study plan and the course to fit your needs. I also offer a live section of this course three times a year.

Course Structure

All of the materials referenced on the study plan are provided on the course website or are available for free at Khan Academy. Time will be spent reviewing more than 30 instructional videos I created as well as practicing problems daily. Automated quizzes serve as checkpoints during the course. By the end of the course, students will be familiar with the testing format and will have reviewed the fundamental concepts in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and Trigonometry.

Who should enroll?

Students in grades 8-12 who wish to complete the course at their own pace are welcome to enroll.

Technology Requirements

  • High speed, broadband Internet
  • Sound card and microphone (for live sessions)
  • Streaming video capabilities to watch recorded lectures
  • TI-83 graphing calculator (strongly recommended)

  1. Nathaniel F

    This course was excellent, the self-paced schedule aided me in studying for the SAT along with learning some new concepts. The problems given were tailored to my needs and challenged me. I highly recommend this course for anyone thinking of taking the SAT!

  2. Theresa (Fall 2018 SAT Math student)

    This was a really good class for me. It was incredibly helpful because Mrs. Gomes created a personalized schedule for each one of us. I took the SAT last year and wasn’t sure what or how to study but taking this class I’ve been able to fill my algebra gaps and learn how to study effectively. It was a great class! I would definitely recommend.

  3. Elizabeth Allen (Fall 2018 SAT Math student)

    This course was FANTASTIC!!!!!! I learned more in this course than any course I have taken before for SAT or ACT prep. My score went up because of Mrs. Gomes. After her class, I took an SAT practice test and my math score went from 540 to 630! Almost 100 points. This was a larger jump than I had EVER hoped for! She is a great teacher, made the class fun, and took time to help me. I am so so so glad that I did this course! I would definitely give it a full five stars and recommend this to everyone. She came up with a personalized study plan just for me to help me succeed- and it worked! She was so encouraging. I loved this class! Thank you Mrs. Gomes!

  4. Student (Fall 2017 Self-Paced Course)

    I just wanted to thank you so much for your help the past 6 weeks. I just got my scores back, and I improved my math score by 100 points! (From a 540-640). I could not have done it without your course, so thank you so so much!

  5. Kalina

    This was a really good course for me. After taking my SAT last spring, I didn’t know how to study or what to study. I wasn’t sure of my strengths or weaknesses. This self-paced class was the best option for me. Mrs. Gomes gave me a schedule specifically for my needs. I really recommend this for anyone who wants to improve their SAT math score and is feeling unprepared. The results are what you put into it. If you don’t put any effort, then you will not succeed. You will find that the more you study, the better you get and the more you understand the math that will be on the SAT.

  6. Glenna

    This class made me feel confident and prepared to take the SAT. Mrs. Gomes did a fantastic job adjusting our work according to the areas where we each needed the most help. Not only did she teach us critical math concepts, but also test taking skills that prepared us to take both the SAT and the ACT.

    I am pleased to say that I scored 710 in SAT math, and I know that I wouldn’t have earned the same score without Mrs. Gomes`s class.

  7. Emily

    I think Mrs.Gomes does an excellent job. She helped me get a better understanding of the SAT math section and helped me with my weak areas in SAT math. Mrs. Gomes created a personalized schedule for me, which was extremely helpful, based on my score from the math SAT test she gave me. She also had me work on Khan Academy and watch her helpful math videos online throughout the week, and had me email her with any problems I had.This class was very helpful and was a good preparation for the SAT.

Instructor Bio

Kathryn (Bell) Gomes

I was homeschooled k-12 and I loved it, but math was not the strongest part of my home education. I’ll never forget my first day in a calculus classroom at the University of Pittsburgh, I was so unprepared! I survived and was able to graduate with a major in mathematics, but not without noting quite a few things I wish I had done differently in high school. Now that I am homeschooling my own kids I’m committed to helping other homeschooled students enter college math classrooms prepared and confident.

I taught mathematics in the public schools of Philadelphia for seven years, hold a masters in math education from the University of Pennsylvania, and authored Apologia’s elementary math program. Find out more about my curriculum here.

When I am not working on something math-related I’m probably trying out a science experiment with my three little ones, cooking something spicy (we love Indian food!), or running in a local Philly race (look towards the back of the pack . . . I’m quite slow).
