Private SAT Tutoring central NJ

The Digital SAT is not only an important part of the college admission process, but also crucial in helping students obtain scholarships for college. At SLC we've helped thousands of students achieve their goals; and we will make the process painless - and even enjoyable - for your teen. 

We first gain an understanding of your teens' needs and strengths by assessing their skills through a practice Digital SAT test.  We then meet with the family to go over results, learn individual goals, and map out a personal plan and timetable for your student.

Next, a key element is pairing your child with certified, experienced math and English teachers who specialize in tutoring for the Digital SAT.  They will engage and motivate your teen, as they strike the perfect balance between targeted skill building, effective SAT strategies, and test taking practice.  The personal relationship that teens develop with their SAT tutors creates an atmosphere of collaboration and responsibility.

Finally, the best part: teens' increased confidence and motivation as their scores rise!  Most of our students achieve an increase of over 100 points on each Digital SAT section!  In addition, parents report that their child actually enjoys his or her SAT prep classes.  As an added bonus, our instruction always achieves benefits in school and beyond... better skills for college and improved grades in math and English classes!

Digital SAT Format



The SAT is now digital and just two hours fifteen minutes long. Students take the test on their chrome books or laptops at a test center such as the student's school. The Digital SAT has two sections - Reading and Writing, and Math - each with a possible score of 200 to 800.

Each section has two modules and is computer adaptive. The first module is the same for all students and serves as a baseline with a mix of easy, medium, and hard questions. Depending on performance on first module, students will be placed into an easier or more difficult second module.  A student placing into the easier second module will have his or her maximum score capped at approximately 550/600.

Here's an example flow of a math section from module 1 to module 2:

What Parents Are Saying...

After Thomas finished SAT tutoring at Somerset Learning Center, his SAT score ranked in the 96 percentile - and he received over $51,000 in scholarship money for Rochester Institute of Technology. His writing and comprehension skills improved so much. The cost of the tutoring was repaid many times over by the scholarship money and that he got into the college of his choice - his top choice! Thank you!

The morning of the SAT exams, Brad came downstairs dressed and ready to go. He was eager and wanted to get going. I had to remind him that a little bit of test anxiety was a good thing. He told me not to worry, he knew what to do. When he returned, he knew he had done well. His reading, math and writing scores were all in the 700's and appropriate for college admissions. He said he wants to take the SATs again because he is sure he could get 800’s!
It is never easy to convince a teenager to do more work. Their days are full. My decision to send Brad to Somerset Learning Center for SAT prep was based on 1) the SAT tutoring sessions focused on his needs and 2) the flexibility in scheduling sessions.
Some of Brad’s classmates did not score as well as they hoped on the SATs. Brad said, “Mom, they should have gone to Somerset Learning Center.” It’s one thing to convince moms, but this is a pretty strong endorsement from a teenager. Brad will be back to review in the fall just to see if he can get 800's. Please extend my thanks to your teachers for focusing on the skill review, but even more for getting his head in the right place. Thank you!
