Developing the proper foundations to approach the SAT and ACT tests

ThinquePrep%20(42%20of%2066)_edited (1).

Thinque Prep proudly hosts its annual summer test preparation workshop. While other (shorter) classes only focus on "test hacks," we take the time to really delve into the foundations of reading, writing, grammar, and mathematics so that students can develop the skills to succeed on both the SAT and ACT. We cap our class sizes at 8 students so that students are to receive individual assistance as well. This class is co-taught by Joyee Lin, perfect score recipient on the ACT and SATNina Calabretta, master English instructor, and Michael Funaro, math and science whiz.
