How do you find the SAT/ACT Prep Program that fits your needs?
Finding the right SAT/ACT Prep Program is not always an easy task because there are many ways to prepare. The first step is to understand your needs and then look for a program that meets those requirements. Dr. Dunn is now preparing students to take the SAT and/or ACT with online programs that are customized to meet their needs and goals. Online Test Prep is extremely effective because it is convenient, learner-focused, and outcome-oriented.
Dr. Dunn's online customized Test Prep is for students who:
Are motivated to score as high as they can on the SAT or ACT.
Want personalized instruction based on their learning profiles.
Need flexible scheduling because of other commitments.
Are impatient with the one-size-fits-all approach to Test Prep.
Want an instructor who can explain confusing, complex concepts.
How do you benefit from Dr. Dunn's online SAT/ACTPrep?
The program is designed and implemented to meet your needs and goals. Most Test Prep programs are organized around time and units six or nine weeks, six classes, three or four tests, and specific problem and question types. In contrast, this personalized online program is organized around a process of five fundamentals.
Analyzing your learning needs, goals, and time constraints.
• Designing a SAT/ACT Prep program that fits you.
Developing a program based on your personal profile learning needs, scheduling constraints, and goals.
Implementing a SAT/ACT Prep program based on personalized instructional activities and a customized schedule.
Evaluating your progress throughout the course with continual feedback.
How does Dr. Dunn's online Test Prep program work?
The online customized program is structured, straightforward, and outcome-oriented. Below are the steps:
1. Complete and return the Student Profile form that will enable me to create a customized preparation program that fits you.
2. Based on the information your parents and you provide, I will send a proposal for a SAT or ACT Prep program that includes a syllabus, online instructional schedule, learning activities, evaluation exercises, support (monitoring/feedback) procedures, and cost.
3. You will review the proposal and suggest needed changes..
4. After we agree on the proposal and the appropriate fees are paid (check or credit card), we will begin the course.
You will spend time only on activities based on your needs. I will closely monitor your performance and provide continual feedback to help you improve.
What kind of supplies/equipment do you need?
We will use a program that facilitates interactive communication over the Internet and a Learning Management System so students must have a computer with Internet access. Throughout the course students must also have access to a calculator, a notebook, and pencils. If students are preparing for the SAT, they must buy The Official SAT Study Guide by College Board. To prepare for the ACT, students must buy The Real ACT Prep Guide by the developers of the ACT. Both books are widely available in stores and online.
What is the course format?
The recommended number of online and offline hours that a student should commit to varies based on the needs and goals of the student. The online instructional session with me will be one hour in length. For some students, I recommend meeting two times a week, one hour at a time. For other students, one hour a week is appropriate. In addition to the weekly instructional session(s), parents and students will receive a weekly online report that summarizes the online class and student performance. In addition to providing online reports, I will consult as needed with parents by telephone and email. Students usually begin the course from five to nine weeks prior to the official test date.
What are the fees?
The total fee will be determined by the recommended number of online instructional and support hours. Fees for one-on-one customized preparation range from $595 to $1195. Fees for two-to-one customized preparation (two students) range from $495 to $895 per student. Fees will be stipulated in the proposal. Checks and credit cards are accepted. Fees must be paid before the course begins.
