Parkland, FL, August 26, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- SAT Preparation Group, a South Florida company that specializes in coaching students how to succeed in the classroom, on the SAT test, and in life, is disputing a recent article in the Wall St. Journal that claims test prep courses may not be as beneficial as some think. The article focused on other test prep companies and did not mention SAT Preparation Group, which is based in Parkland and coaches students in Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade counties.
”If the classes are good and result in significant SAT score increases, of course they are worth the investment. While other companies mainly give students mock SAT tests and teach them a few tricks, SAT Preparation Group offers much more,” said SATPG CEO Steve Kirshenbaum from his office in Parkland, FL. “Our coaches work closely with students, enhancing their emotional and psychological well-being in addition to tutoring on subjects and teaching superior test-taking skills. Our approach incorporates both a peak performance aspect and a tactical game plan for learning and success.”
SAT Preparation Group has been helping students succeed in South Florida—including Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties, and the cities of Miami, Boca Raton, Weston, Fort Lauderdale, Coral Springs, and Parkland—for over 10 years. Students who have studied with SATPG coaches have achieved average SAT test score increases that are unprecedented in the industry—currently 250 points per student for the general population and over 400 points per student for those in the top 25 percent.
In addition to its extremely successful SAT test prep course, which results in an average score increase of 250 points per student and over 400 points per student for those in the top 25 percent, SAT Preparation Group also offers subject tutoring (math, science, and writing); college planning assistance; stress management coaching; strategies to reverse test anxiety; career preparation coaching; customer service skills; lessons on effective study habits; and life skills coaching—including the areas of time management, goal setting and achievement, personal development, and positive life values.
