Free SAT Exam Prep Class

2017 SAT Prep classes

kplProgram dates are Saturdays, March 4, 11, 18 and 25, 2017 • 9:30am–12:30pm.

Keene Orthodontic Specialists’ free SAT Prep course is scheduled for four Saturdays in March at Keene Public Library.

Keene Orthodontic Specialists funds the Free SAT Prep program as a service to our patients and the community. “Success through education is a big part of the American Dream and helping kids be their best is especially important to me,” says Dr. Lance Miller of Keene Orthodontic Specialists.

The program is not designed to teach Math and English per se, but rather to help students test well. Inflated scores are not the goal but accurate scores achieved with confidence are emphasized. Any student planning to take the SAT is eligible for the course, although priority is given to high school juniors during the registration process.

Returning this year to teach the math segments is Mr. Rob Tiebout, a dynamic teacher at Keene High School. We are also very pleased to welcome back Mrs. Jessica Smith, a highly regarded English teacher at Keene High School, who will present the English segments.

Students and/or parents are strongly encouraged to sign up as soon as registration opens in early January since the class has filled to capacity in the past. An email address is required at the time of registration because students must print out and bring their email confirmation to the first class as a ticket for admittance.

Program dates are Saturdays, March 4, 11, 18 and 25, 2017 • 9:30am–12:30pm.

Registration is open to high school JUNIORS only. Starting February 1, students from other grades are welcome to sign up, if space permits.
