SAT Score Improvements

The following table shows our average SAT score improvements for the Classes of 2018 to 2021.  In 2016, the College Board introduced a new exam on a 1600-point scale.  The first class that took this exam for college admissions was the Class of 2018. Score improvement is calculated from an initial baseline score to a final official score as reported by the student.  All baseline tests are official SATs released by the College Board.

For example, a student whose 11th grade PSAT score was a combined 1150 (out of 1520) improved an average of 186 points to 1336 (out of 1600). A student who had a baseline ACT score of 27 (out of 36), on average improved 5 points for a final score of 32.



 

The Marks Education tutoring program gives students the confidence and skills they need on test day—and beyond.

Every student has a unique learning style and academic background, and each has the potential to excel. Marks Education tutors specialize in creating one-on-one, customized tutoring programs designed to support and challenge students.

We start by diagnosing any existing weaknesses in skills or comprehension, and we ask questions to discover parent and student goals. Then, we create a customized tutoring program to raise grades, strengthen skills and confidence, and when appropriate, improve AP test scores or SAT Subject Test scores.

Our tutors are professional educators with extensive classroom and tutoring experience. This allows us to understand the core skills that may go into excelling in math, science, history, English, or other academic coursework. We frequently work with students to improve study skills, including time management coaching, presentation of memorization techniques, and advice on communicating constructively with teachers and professors.
