From the desk of Dr. Brewington:
Given the right instructor, a student can learn specific strategies that enable him or her to approach the SAT successfully. The best instructor is one who is a trained and accomplished teacher and test taker. That is why all Brewington SAT Prep instructors possess graduate degrees and teaching certifications.
Because of our training and success taking standardized tests, we are able to use a variety of skills when working with students and cater to different learning styles. The curriculum is flexible, and caters to the needs of each student individually. There is no cookie-cutter course plan or one-size-fits all model; we design each course to suit the needs of each student.
