For over 10 years, Brewster students have worked with Knower Academics, both in a class setting and in one-to-one tutoring. I am always impressed with how well they know our students! The teachers thoughtfully adapt instruction and program to meet the skill level and testing goals for each student.

Dean of College Counseling

Study for the entrance exams in the way that you learn best.

Knower Academics promotes a strategic and positive approach to the SAT, ACT and TOEFL® entrance exams.  Many Brewster students are passionate learners who have a history of struggle with traditional test formats or environments. Our instructors are dedicated to understanding each student’s learning profile and rightsizing our approach to test preparation. We emphasize that the first goal on any standardized test is to showcase your strengths!

We have worked together with Brewster college counseling to design our 2021 test prep offerings, detailed below. As in years past, all offerings, including our class, integrate a strong one-to-one component.

Get the most out of every class with our 2021 KNOW the Test™ SAT/ACT Custom Content Course. This innovative syllabus incorporates one-to-one breakout sessions, group instruction, and individualized practice sets to ensure that every student receives meaningful support. In a classroom setting, instructors address aspects of the test which are universal to all students, such as the specialized techniques that “strong test takers” use to earn their best scores. Building on that foundation, the course incorporates one-to-one “breakout sessions” so that all students receive individual, differentiated instruction in the content areas most applicable to improving their scores. Due to this customization, all students (regardless of baseline score or academic skill set) directly benefit from their classes.

Students who enroll in this course will:

  • Participate in the February 14 ACT® virtual mock test*

One-to-One Test Prep
for the SAT,® ACT,® OR TOEFL®

BEGIN ANYTIME

After a free consultation, sessions begin with a welcome meeting. Then, once or twice weekly coaching sessions are scheduled during the student’s available times up until the test date.

Show your strengths and target your weaknesses on the entrance exams by working directly with a test preparation specialist. For some students, improving SAT® or ACT® performance provides a critical piece in their application picture, justifying a rigorous course of study. For other students, just a few sessions on  strategy will suffice. All students need to strike a balance in their studies so as to not draw time away from critical coursework.  We can also use the test as a way to review foundational material and address test anxiety in a supportive environment.

In this fully customized offering, students will work with their instructor to create a study plan that supports their goals and balances exam preparation with other academic priorities and time commitments.

In addition to the features listed for the courses, above,
students who register for one-to-one support will:

  • Choose to specialize in either the SAT or the ACT, or both
  • Receive instruction in a format that is tailored to their learning style and accommodation profile
  • Learn to manage their time and priorities on these high-stakes exams
  • Study the best tactics to improve accuracy and increase speed
  • Review the content areas most relevant to their score report
  • Develop a test-taking plan tailored to college goals
  • Understand the role of exams in college applications, and keep the tests in perspective
