Group classes are optimal for students who are looking for a more affordable alternative to 1-on-1 private tutoring. These group classes are designed for students with initial SAT scores between 1000 and 1390.
Why our SAT classes are markedly different:
- They are taught by tutors with over 20,000 hours of combined tutoring experience (more experience than that of many companies’ entire roster of tutors!)
- You are not getting the “B Team” — Edison Prep’s founders teach the classes.
- The teachers still take the test each year and earn top 1% scores. The four most recent SAT scores have ranged from 2300 to a perfect 2400…a feat fewer than 10 Georgians achieve each year.
- Despite all of this, our prices are the same as or less than the competition. We keep overhead low; we have neither a stock price to support nor do we purchase expensive radio ads.
- Finally, we have good students in our classes. We intentionally limit our advertising to allow us to continue cultivating a word-of-mouth client base of passionate students who are serious about increasing their scores, which includes doing homework. This philosophy improves the classroom environment for everyone.

SAT Class Structure and Description:
- The class consists of proctored mock SATs, instructional sessions, and an Exam Review Session the week before the exam.
- Students will be expected to do weekly homework outside of class that will reinforce the concepts discussed at our sessions. Approximate homework time is 3-4 hours a week, though our highest-improving students often assign themselves extra homework. We’re happy to give students extra material if they run out of tests; no one has ever run out of practice tests.
- This class is rigorous preparation for the SAT and is a commitment that is approximately equal to a typical high school class, when you combine both the class time and homework time. Students should mentally consider the class as the 7th or 8th class in their school schedule. When you consider that the SAT/ACT is given the same weight as 21 semester grades during the college admissions process, treating SAT preparation the same as just one high school class is actually illogically low!
- Group classes are intentionally built backwards from the test date so that students take the test while the material is fresh. It is stronglyrecommended that students take the exam immediately following the course. Since many students take the test multiple times to “superscore” their best section scores, it is also highly recommended that students sign up for consecutive SAT test dates until they are finished (avoiding the chance for rust to set in).
- We keep the group classes engaging with two-way material, real-life examples, and short quizzes to test newly-learned concepts. When coupled with an understanding of the test’s importance for college admissions, a fun and productive environment is created.
