The SATS Zone certainly prepared me exceptionally well for my SAT1 and SAT2
s. At first, I was struggling to re-learn the concepts and knowledge that I had learnt back in school. After 2 years in the army, with all its commitments and not touching any academic books, the SATS Zone ensured that professional tutors helped me revise the basics in the quickest possible time.
I had taken my SATs back when I was in Secondary school but without preparing for it, and I was not satisfied with my score. I only had about 3 months before my second attempt at the SATs and I desperately needed a crash course. I had tutors for each subject in the SAT1 and SAT2s: Math, English and Chemistry. Through the dedicated coaching and guidance of SATS Zone tutors, I managed to step into the test hall with confidence and come out of it with a good score. My score improved by nearly 300 points. I was very relieved that my scores improved significantly which definitely increased my chances of being admitted into my university of choice.
At the SATS Zone, the SATS Zone trainer was my counsellor, mentor and guide. He led me each step of the way so that I could achieve my goal of getting into a good university. Dedicating many hours (up to 3-4 times a week), the SATS Zone trainer would sit down and assist me in crafting my personal statement and other supplement essays needed for my application. I even could call him or arrange a meeting at anytime of the day should I require any urgent help, which I did on a few occasions. With many thorough yet casual dialogue sessions, we brainstormed many ideas that fit well into my essays. He was really helpful in assisting me and never failed to offer me additional advice and tips on which Engineering schools to apply to and the methods of going about these applications. He also had a great knowledge of the admission criteria of various universities and the standards set by their respective admission offices.
We only had 3 months to rush these applications, yet all the deadlines were met and all the essays were completed with high standards. Even when I was in the army, college application essay drafts and suggestions would be sent back and forth between my SATS Zone trainer and me via email, which I am thoroughly grateful for. I am also very thankful for his genuine concern for my future academic and professional life.
After months of hard work and with the help of SATS Zone’s professional staff, I managed to be admitted to one of my top choices, University of Michigan Ann Arbor (school of Engineering). I am truly appreciative of all the help and assistance. The SATS Zone gave me an added advantage in my university applications and it also helped me focus on my future goals when I was initially uncertain.
With its passion for helping students within a professional and friendly setting, the SATS Zone fully equips its students with the necessary skills to achieve their goals; be it scoring higher in the SAT or getting admitted into their dream university.
