SAT Math Prep

This seven-week test SAT math prep course teaches the core mathematical concepts and skills tested on the New SAT math test (began March 2016). In addition, students will practice proven test-taking strategies that will help dramatically improve scores. Students complete a practice test during the first week of the course and submit it. An individualized study plan for weeks 2-7 is then created based on the results of their practice test. Students are assigned review videos and practice problems that are tailored to their individual needs and target score.

The class meets weekly to practice problems, strategies, and time-saving techniques. Throughout the week, students are able to access video tutorials that correspond with the weekly assignments. Students will also be guided through the materials on Khan Academy and will complete a timed practice exam. 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 II, geometry, and trigonometry.

    I really enjoyed the SAT Math Prep course! The class was super helpful in strengthening any weak areas I had, and I definitely feel better prepared for the SAT after this taking this class. The amount of work is perfect, and it wasn’t hard for me to catch up when I fell behind. Also Mrs. Gomes is a great teacher, very nice, upbeat, and helpful! Overall I think this is a great class for anyone who is going to take the SAT.

    The SAT Math class is great! Mrs. Gomes is friendly, encouraging, and also makes an effort to know the students. She gives us a personalized study plan that helps pinpoint what areas of math we are weak on. She also gives shortcuts and other strategies in her video assignments and the lectures that make questions simpler and quicker to solve. The assignments are not overwhelming, and if you fall behind a day or two you can easily catch back up. The class is great preparation for the SAT Math test and also good for review.

    Never before have I been able to confidently look at an SAT math question and absolutely know how to approach it. I’ve struggled with math before, but this class showed me that it is no big deal. Mrs. Gomes is a fun and welcoming teacher. I felt very comfortable coming to her with my questions during class. I think it is amazing that we get our own study plans, and the work load seemed to be balanced well throughout the week. Her videos are short, sweet, and to the point! Which is everything you’re looking for in an SAT math review. They were very clear and helpful.

    After taking this class, I grew from someone who’s heart would skip a beat at the sight of a math problem on a test to someone who has now gained confidence in knowing how to tackle those very problems. What is distinctive about this class is the personal study plan Mrs. Gomes creates for each student. Homework was geared for us individually based on the topics we struggled with on a practice exam. At the beginning of each week, we attended a live webinar class where problems we had trouble with during the week were gone over. Class was very engaging. Mrs. Gomes drew everybody in and made us feel comfortable asking questions in class. Throughout the week, we watched videos she had made on particular concepts and worked through Khan Academy’s SAT practice questions. I appreciated how Mrs. Gomes went above and beyond in answering the questions I emailed her. All in all, I found this class to be not only good preparation for the SAT, but a solid, timely review of the math skills needed for life.

    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.

    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.

    I decided to take Mrs. Gomes’ SAT Math Prep course this past summer in order to get a kick-start on my SAT studying and learn what areas in math I was weakest on. Mrs. Gomes course far exceeded my expectations and made it much easier to dive into the overwhelming task of studying for the SATs. What was most beneficial about the course was the way Mrs. Gomes laid it out and the videos she created. Mrs. Gomes maps out a customized weekly & daily plan for every student, based on their SAT goals and how they did on the SAT practice test at the beginning of the course. It was very simple, organized, and easy to follow, which is something that many online courses have yet to master. Every week tackled a new math subject and most days included a couple of videos explaining different concepts as well as practice problems. Every week ended with a quiz going over what you had learned. Mrs. Gomes videos are excellent, and I actually found them better than the famous Kahn Academy videos because her explanations were very clear and effective.

    I felt like there was just the right amount of work, and it was easy for me to double up some days or catch up if I had been busy and fallen behind in assignments. If you are trying to really master the subjects, I would suggest also doing your own studying and practice problems on subjects that you are having a difficult time with.

    Mrs. Gomes was always available to provide one-on-one help when I had questions or was struggling with a topic and she is one of the best math problem explainers there is! The live classes are also very helpful if you’re able to attend those, for Mrs. Gomes goes over all of the trickiest questions from the weekly quizzes. I highly recommend this course in order to start your SAT studying journey in the best possible way!

    I loved the SAT MATH PREP class. Mrs. Kathryn is a great teacher and is also supper nice. Taking this class really helped me get ready for doing the SAT! ?

  9. Alana

    SAT Math Prep with Mrs. Gomes was very helpful! Having taken SAT classes before, I was slightly apprehensive going into it. I love math and am in advanced classes, but my main problem was remembering the basic algebra problems (which was very frustrating for me) and Mrs. Gomes was very helpful and encouraging throughout the class and live sessions. Making me review the concepts and do the problems ultimately helped me improve my score by 90 points. This is a great class and is very helpful for all levels of math! (:

  10. Student

    Ms Gomes was always available to answer any SAT math question I had, whether it was from a problem given in class or another that I did for extra prep. She explained concepts well and was really encouraging throughout.

  11. 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.

  12. Elizabeth (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!

  13. Jonah Brown (Spring 2018 SAT Math Student)

    I took Mrs. Gomes SAT Math Prep course to better my understanding of the test and to get a higher score. The class was well structured. Everything was well put and easy to understand. I truly feel like I learned a lot and I’m looking forward to seeing progress in my next SAT score. I highly recommend this test.

Instructor Bio

Kathryn (Bell) Gomes

I’m Debra Bell’s daughter and I was homeschooled K-12. I was an AP Scholar and took all of my AP classes online. I have an undergraduate degree in Mathematics from the University of Pittsburgh and a Masters in Education from the University of Pennsylvania. I have taught high school mathematics for the past 7 years in the Philadelphia area. Now I am teaching SAT Math and Algebra 1 online, incorporating many of the lessons I learned as a home school student to make my classes as engaging and effective as possible.

Math has always intrigued me because of its patterns and structure. There is nothing quite as exciting as finally finding the correct answer.  Over the years I have met many students who struggle in math or find it boring.  I’m very passionate about helping these students discover the beauty of mathematics and the joy of problem solving.
