SAT Math (Advanced Topics)
(In-person or Online)

¥140,000/term

In the Summer Intensive SAT Math Advanced Topics class, students with a solid understanding of the fundamentals required on the SAT learn the strategies required to solve the most difficult problems in the Math Section. This class does not cover basics like exponent rules and algebraic manipulation but instead takes a deep dive into complicated math questions and how to solve them with the most efficient method. In every lesson, teachers work through real SAT questions, not only solving the hardest problems but also outlining steps to ensure efficiency and accuracy. Some example topics:


(Circle/Triangle Geometry Hybrid Problems, Advanced Modeling and Equation Interpretation, Advanced Factoring Strategies, Creative Algebraic Shortcuts)


Students expect to be consistently involved in problem solving while in the class (using new strategies with other students to answer the questions at hand, the teacher won’t be solving problems by his/herself) and around 2-3 hours of homework per day. At the conclusion of the class, students not only solve the most challenging problems on the SAT but also approach them with the most efficient strategy. On average, students who score above 650/800 in the math section join this course and see their scores increase by 50 points.
