"Thank you for your services. It made a huge difference in my son's confidence going into the SAT's."

"Signing up our son for tutoring was the best decision we could have made. For 4 years, we have been trying to get our youngest son into an independent school. After...actually visiting RITES and speaking with Lisa, we decided to give them a chance at helping our son. Our son's tutor helped him with his reading comprehension, organizing his thoughts, and putting them down on paper in an engaging, creative way. She helped him study and prepare for the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE). Through all of this, [she] was funny, engaging, and creative, and seemed to know exactly what our son needed. This year when we applied, our son was accepted at our first choice of independent schools! Signing up with RITES is so worth the investment!"

 

 

 

 

New INDIVIDUAL PSAT/SAT PREP, specifically designed for students with learning differences!

This is NOT a group class - we work one-to-one with each student!


Most students don't look forward to high-stakes tests like the SAT, but for those with learning differences, preparing for and taking such tests can be especially unpleasant and stressful. Under timed test conditions, the daily challenges faced by LD students are often magnified, and therefore such students may often score lower than they should.  With this in mind, we have developed a PSAT/SAT prep program which differs from standard programs in at least three significant ways: 

  • The contents and teaching approach have been modified to address the needs of learners with dyslexia, language disabilities, attention deficit disorder, and executive functioning issues

  • For every enrolled student, a RITES specialist sets up an initial consultation to determine the student's specific needs and learning profile, which forms the basis of a highly personalized study program

  • We offer one-to-one training, in contrast to large commercial preparation classes; each student gets real experience with multiple practice tests, while learning specific test-taking techniques and strategies, and receiving ongoing support around the sessions to improve performance on the PSAT or SAT.

We focus on the areas that cause LD students the most difficulty:

  • Managing Test Anxiety
  • Time Management
  • Strategy and Repetition
  • Understanding Directions and Vocabulary of Questions
  • Paying Attention and Working Methodically
  • Study Plan Management and Continuous Organization

Our program is divided into 4 distinct modules, whether it is SAT or PSAT preparation.

The SAT format looks like this:

Module 1 - Math

Math 1: Arithmetic
Math 2: Algebra I


Module 2 - Math

Math 3: Algebra II

Module 3 - Verbal

Verbal 1: Writing - Improving Sentences & Error Identification
Verbal 2: Writing - Improving Paragraphs & Essays

  • A binder to keep and study from of all the strategies taught
  • Mock tests with scored test reports
  • Phone and e-mail study support between sessions
