Dear Parent and Student:

With more than a quarter century of SAT teaching experience, I am proud to be San Diego's leading SAT and ACT preparation specialist. A-Academics' SAT Magic, the Quick and Easy Way to Master the New SAT, employs a remarkable approach to SAT and PSAT tutoring that I developed over a span of more than twenty-five years and have updated, modified, and rewritten to accommodate the latest changes in the SAT test design.

SAT Magic (3rd Edition), one of the first SAT preparation courses written for the newly designed SAT, is geared specifically for the new SAT format and includes up-to-date introductory material, study schedules, reading notes, writing and language notes, math notes, essay writing notes, and more.

Introductory Material

The introductory portion of SAT Magic (3rd Edition) is designed to familiarize you with the various components of the SAT as well as those of the SAT Magic course itself. It answers many of the most common questions that students and parents ask and dispels the many myths that have led a myriad of students down the wrong paths.

Study Schedules

SAT Magic (3rd Edition) also includes a set of three study schedule programs. These study schedules are designed to accommodate your individual needs and do not require a daily tutoring appointment.

Reading Notes and Writing and Language Notes

SAT Magic (3rd Edition) also includes a wonderful set of SAT Reading, Writing, and Language notes. In particular, the SAT Magic (3rd Edition) Verbal Skills are a set of key learning components for the Writing and Language portion of the new SAT. They consist of Grammar, Usage, Diction, and Punctuation examples and rules designed to provide you with the skills you will need to master the Writing and Language section. SAT Magic (3rd Edition) also provides essay writing notes that are designed to make the Essay section a breeze.

Math Notes

One of the most renowned features of SAT Magic (3rd Edition) is its Math notes sections. These notes include the reasoning skills (clever reasoning "tricks" and shortcuts) and math concepts that enable students to master the math sections of the SAT with ease. I have compiled this set of mathematics notes over a span of more than thirty years and have presented them in an easy-to-learn format. You will begin to use these skills from the very first day of your SAT Magic program. The results really do seem like magic!

Essay Notes

SAT Magic (3rd Edition) also has several pages of very effective essay writing notes. Naturally, for those of you (probably most of you) who will write the optional essay at the end of your SAT or ACT, we will practice writing a full length essay or set of essays after you have studied your essay notes. Fortunately, the SAT essay is no longer a personal or opinion-based assignment. Instead, it is analytical in nature, so you will not have to discuss your personal position on a any particular issue.  

For more information, or if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give me a call anytime. Incidentally, I have some important and perhaps surprising information that you should know before you schedule your student’s first SAT. I look forward to hearing from you.
