The College Board has substantially overhauled the SAT, and the new version is in place as of March 2016. Changes include a return to the 1600-point scoring system, the reporting of a variety of subscores and cross-test scores, a now-optional and separately scored essay section, and math and verbal tests that more closely imitate the skills needed for success in college courses. High scores on the new SAT demand the right preparation. Manhattan Review's private SAT tutoring is the most customized and current instruction available for Sydney students who wish to meet the challenges of the new SAT. Our tutors implement detailed learning plans based on their assessments of individual strengths and weakness in each of the new SAT's testing areas, academic background and academic goals, preferred learning style, and personal characteristics. This highly personalized SAT tutoring produces results that far exceed other available options such as self-study methods, pre-recorded video instruction, or obsolete tutoring.
The SAT-optional policies adopted by many universities have been highly publicized in recent years. Even at these institutions, however, high SAT scores are still strongly associated with acceptance. Bowdoin College, which has been test-optional since 1969, is an illustrative example. 70% of accepted students chose to submit standardized test scores as part of their applications, and the median SAT scores of these students were 730 critical reading, 720 math, and 730 writing, for a composite score of 2180 (approximately the 98th percentile of all test-takers). At almost all universities, the SAT represents an opportunity to gain a substantial competitive advantage in the admissions process regardless of the controversies surrounding standardized testing. Manhattan Review's SAT private tutoring and prep courses greatly simplify the process of gaining this advantage.
SAT Private Tutoring
Funny, made things clear and related things to real life. The SAT / ACT course was very helpful, I don’t think I would’ve improved my reading skills without it. This course also gave me strategies to break down a reading. I got a feel for the SAT and had practice in areas I struggled in.

Regina R. has 11 years of experience as an SAT tutor, and has lived in Sydney since 2015. She received SAT scores of 750 verbal and 760 math, for a composite score of 1510 (the 99th percentile). Originally from Portland, Oregon, she graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a bachelor of arts in theological studies, and then earned her master of divinity from Pepperdine University. She is a Lutheran pastor who has served congregations in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
For a religious leader, Regina is something of a black sheep. She loves rock music, has several tattoos, and enjoys riding motorcycles. Her students are often surprised when they meet her, but they universally praise her tutoring. "Regina certainly doesn't fit the stereotype of either a pastor or a prep tutor, but she gets the job done," read one student comment. "She's one of the best teachers I've ever had."
