Long Island Regents Prep recently had the pleasure of teaching its SAT Crash Course to 18 students visiting from China. The SAT prep and overview course, “Mastering the New SAT Exam,” was offered through a partnership between Long Island Regents Prep and WorldStrides, the nation’s oldest and largest student travel organization. Taught at Pace University, the SAT class was developed by Long Island Regents Prep’s Director of SAT Review, Joshua Fialkow. Mr. Fialkow, who holds degrees in history and education from Yale and Columbia, brings a decade of teaching, tutoring, and curriculum writing experience to his SAT course development.
During the 4-hour SAT class, which took place on July 19, Mr. Fialkow introduced students to the newly redesigned SAT, which debuts in March 2016. “Mastering the New SAT Exam” provided the WorldStrides students with an overview of the New SAT, test-taking strategies, and sample SAT questions. So far, feedback from WorldStrides students has been overwhelmingly positive. Long Island Regents Prep will offer a more comprehensive version of this SAT Crash Course at Farmingdale State College beginning in February 2016.
