SAT, ACT, ISEE, and HSPT Test Preparation

Mrs. Behrens works individually and in small groups with students in teaching both the strategies and the content of these standardized tests in a detailed and easily understood fashion.

Beginning with a review of prior-learned material, Mrs. Behrens gives detailed explanations of each section of the test. She analyzes the structure of the exam and discusses meaningful strategies for the test’s questions and problems. Students self-test with practice exams, simulating actual test-taking situations. Approaches for allaying test anxiety, for pacing through the exam, and for maximizing final results prepare each student for the day of the test.

Former students of Mrs. Behrens’ ISEE and HSPT test preparation classes and individualized tutoring (for secondary school entrance) are now at Chadwick School, Vistamar School, Loyola High School of Los Angeles, Rolling Hills Preparatory School, Marymount High School (LA), and other independent secondary schools.

Students who have taken the SAT and ACT test preparation classes and individualized sessions with Mrs. Behrens are now enrolled in leading colleges and universities in California and throughout the country
