The Purpose of SAT Video Tutorials:
At MEK Review we train our students like athletes. We know that just like in basketball, baseball, or soccer, it’s not enough to have talent. If an athlete wants to succeed, they have to practice hard, learn the plays, and have a dedicated, experienced coach. Similarly, if your child really wants to succeed on the SAT, it’s not enough to be smart. They will have to practice hard, learn the strategies, and have a dedicated, experienced teacher. MEK’s new online video tutorials are just one more way in which MEK is providing these three essential tools.
What’s on the Video Tutorials:
Video tutorials are small pocket-sized versions of our SAT Prep lectures. The videos are typically under 5 minutes and focus on one specific strategy or skill. Videos have been specifically designed to address the most integral areas of the SAT. They show your child the best, most efficient way to tackle questions in reading, writing, and/or math. These videos teach your child strategies that apply to not just one particular question, but that apply to the types of questions that SAT loves to use over and over again. Therefore, your child learns how to attack SAT questions in the fastest and most effective way.
How the Video Tutorials are used:
- WATCH: During the week, our teachers focus on specific skill sets for the SAT. After a lecture, students will be sent an email with a link to a video tutorial that corresponds with the skills taught during class. They will click the link and watch the short video.
- PRACTICE: After watching the video, students immediately reinforce the skills and strategies they just learned by completing practice homework given to them by their teacher.
- REVIEW: Finally, after completing the practice skill sets, students revisit their past tests for self-review. Now that they have been taught the strategy, they can go through their past tests, identify these types of questions, and re-answer the questions using the strategies they have just learned.
