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

“As Coronado parents, we are thrilled to have Steve Reiss conduct the SAT prep course for our kids. Steve is a very talented teacher that knows how to work with kids and makes an impact on their lives as they prepare for college.  It is his unique understanding of the test and how best to teach these insights that make such a powerful combination. Steve's course was paramount to our son getting offers from the Ivy League Schools for academics and football, and ultimately being accepted into UC Berkeley.”  -- Dan and Heather Frank of Coronado.

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 at Coronado High School from 9 am to 12pm, just in time to prepare for the upcoming fall SAT and ACT test dates. The class is offered as a standalone SAT test prep on September 7th, 14th, and 21st for $209. A four session class offers fourth ACT session on September 28th for just an additional $40. College Board practice tests and review materials are included with tuition. All proceeds benefit Coronado’s public schools via CSF.

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.
