Coronado Schools Foundation Helps Students Prepare For The Big Test With SAT & ACT Test Prep Classes

“My daughter benefited from the SAT Summer Enrichment Class,” says Kathy Mulvey of Coronado. “She came home every day and enthusiastically shared an interesting tip or fun fact she had learned from the instructor, Steve Reiss.  He has a special gift of being able to teach SAT skills in an attention-holding, fun manner! We highly recommend the Steve Reiss SAT Prep class and appreciate the Coronado Schools Foundation for offering this affordable opportunity!”

With years of teaching and professional experience, Steve Reiss knows everything you would ever need to know about the all-important, often stressed over SAT and ACT college assessment tests. Partnering with the Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF) to offer SAT and ACT Test Prep classes, this self-proclaimed “most boring author in San Diego” has written or edited over 60 books for people preparing to take the SAT, ACT and other tests. Approaching 400 test preparation seminars, Reiss has been teaching and tutoring since 1980, helping thousands of high schoolers prepare for these important college admission assessment tests.

CSF’s SAT and ACT Test Prep classes, taught by Reiss, will be held Saturdays in September at Coronado High School from 9 am to 12pm, just in time to prepare for the October 6th SAT and October 27th ACT test dates. The class is offered as a standalone SAT test prep on September 8, 15 and 22 for $199. An add-on ACT session will be held on September 29th for an additional $40. A supply fee of $10 is included to cover College Board practice tests and review materials given to students each week.

Reiss begins his classes by reviewing how the test is scored and what constitutes a good score and highlights test-taking strategies that improve the student’s final SAT or ACT score.  He covers time-saving practices that enable the student to finish on time, reviews vocabulary and grammar rules, and shares math formulas that need memorizing. Much of class time is spent going over the reading and calculator math sections.  As additional topics of grammar and non-calculator math are approaches, Reiss illustrates how traps are being set by the College Board or where a time saving strategy is in order.

With college admissions a fierce competition, CSF’s Test Prep classes can help students be ready for what lies ahead, both on the day of the big test and for their future.
