2016 SAT Prep classes
Program dates are Saturdays, March 5, 12, 19 and 26, 2016 • 9:30am–12:30pm.
Keene Orthodontic Specialists funds the Free SAT Prep program as a service to our patients and the community. “Success through education is a big part of the American Dream and helping kids be their best is especially important to me,” says Dr. Lance Miller of Keene Orthodontic Specialists. “The SAT program is a tribute to Dr. Post and his commitment to our community and I am thrilled to be able to continue offering it.” Dr. Charles Post started the program in Keene sixteen years ago and in Brattleboro five years later.
The program is not designed to teach Math and English per se, but rather to help students test well. Inflated scores are not the goal but accurate scores achieved with confidence are emphasized. Any student planning to take the SAT is eligible for the course, although priority is given to high school juniors during the registration process.
Returning this year to teach the math segments is Mr. Rob Tiebout, a dynamic teacher at Keene High School. We are very pleased to welcome back Mrs. Jessica Smith, a highly regarded English teacher at Keene High School, who presented the English segments, including the essay component in 2013 with excellent ratings.
Students and/or parents are strongly encouraged to sign up as soon as registration opens in early January since the class has filled to capacity in the past. An email address is required at the time of registration because students must print out and bring their email confirmation to the first class as a ticket for admittance.
The timing of the program prepares students to take the SAT test on Saturday, May 3. (Deadline for registration for this test date is April 4.) Information on testing dates and locations is available at www.collegeboard.com.
Which of the following can help students on their way to a promising future? a) an excellent education and good grades; b) respectable SAT scores; c) a great smile and a firm handshake; or d) all of the above.
In the view of Keene Orthodontic Specialists, the answer is d) all of the above.
Registration BEGINS on Thursday, January 2, 2016, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Keene Public Library at 603 352-0157. No registrations can be accepted prior to January 2. During January, registration is open to high school JUNIORS only. Starting February 1, students from other grades are welcome to sign up, if space permits.
Note: Dr. Miller also sponsors the SAT Prep program in Brattleboro at Brattleboro Union High School; for students who live in or near Brattleboro, this is a good choice. More information is available at www.BrattOrtho.com
