Prepare to Master the SAT!

Get live online SAT prep classes to maximize your score.

Let’s face it, the SAT test is hard because it’s designed to be hard.

No matter how studious and conscientious you (or your teenager) might be, the very purpose of the SAT is to assess how well candidates can analyze and unpack intentionally tricky questions, and how quickly they can figure out the right answers.

Unfortunately, that means students often miss out on points they could and should have been able to earn – because being intelligent and well educated is no guarantee of SAT success. It’s all about understanding what the College Board is testing for, as well as taking an adaptable approach, maintaining confidence and motivation, and working with strict time limits.

To do well, you need proven strategies, taught to you by an expert with lots of personal experience of the test as well as deep insight into what creates success. Plus you need to develop the perseverance, self-belief, and calm under pressure to see you through test day without anxiety or demotivation ruining your score.

Meet your secret weapon for SAT success: Jake Berman

Jake is the founder and lead instructor at Jake SAT Prep. He’s not a teacher or college student doing tutoring as a side hustle – this is his day job, his business, and his gift.

Jake’s been prepping students for the SAT test for more than 18 years, and has taken the SAT himself more than 90 times with a close to perfect (or sometimes even a perfect) score each time. He knows exactly what goes into achieving a great SAT score, and what doesn’t.

And he can walk you through any SAT question and answer process step by step from start to finish, navigating around the common errors and the appealing-yet-wrong options to show you how to tease out the correct answer. Watch this short video to see how he does it…

Jake’s SAT prep classes take a unique approach to explain not only what you need to know, but how and why the College Board tests for specific capabilities, so that you can develop a full understanding of what it takes to get an excellent SAT score. Plus Jake will prepare you for everything surrounding test day, not just the test itself. 

In fact, these classes are not only preparation for taking the SAT! They’re also excellent preparation for life, developing the analytical thinking, decision-making skills, grit, and confidence you need to excel in a wide range of situations from college to work to your personal life.

Important information for in and out of the exam room

“Jake’s program was a thorough and comprehensive review of the SAT that helped me to achieve scores that exceeded my own expectations, which are amazing assets to have for college applications! His lessons provided me with important information to know for in and out of the exam room and his encouragement kept me motivated throughout the trying testing season.”

–Katie S.

Vast knowledge and understanding of the test

“If anyone understands the SAT, it’s Jake. He is able to connect with his students through his vast knowledge and understanding of the test. He not only teaches students how to take the test, but he also offers advice specific to each student’s strengths and weaknesses. As a result of attending classes with Jake, my score rose 310 points from my PSAT to my SAT.”

–Meaghan O.

Boosted my confidence and my score

“When one thinks of the SATs, the first word that comes to mind is torture. As a former student of Jake’s, I think of excitement… He keeps the material new and consistently finds ways to relay the information in a modern and quite comical way. When I finally sat down to take the test, I felt confident in my ability to perform well given the tools Jake provided. In the end, my score improved by over 300 points.”

–Rachel D.

Here’s how Jake SAT Prep gives you the edge

Live online classes with Jake give you an opportunity to watch and learn while an expert (who has taken the SAT more than 90 times) unpacks what’s really going on with SAT questions, including how the College Board keeps doing its best to catch you out with the same tricks time after time. 

The SAT is designed to be subtly deceptive, phrasing questions and answers in ways that can mislead students into making an incorrect choice. So in Jake’s classes you’ll study how to navigate complicated phrasing, cut through complexity, and spot and avoid common thought-traps, 

Jake uses actual College Board SAT materials, so everything you learn is based on the real thing – no fake “practice questions” that have never appeared in a real-life SAT exam! But the SAT questions and answers are not the most important thing you get in Jake’s classes. By far the most important component of each live class is the deep strategy you’ll learn.

The goal is NOT to stick a band-aid on a question by simply explaining how to get the right answer. (If that’s all you’re looking for, take one of the more expensive SAT classes from the big names that give you less insight.) 

Jake dissects every question in depth to help you realize what the real issues are that prevent you from scoring higher. And he helps key insights sink in by sharing memorable anecdotes from personal experience or the experiences of his former students. His entire approach is founded on helping you gain a deeper understanding of what you need to do differently, shifting your mindset and honing your strategy skills so that you can improve your score. 

The other vital component of Jake’s live classes is accountability – because as every parent of teenagers knows, simply giving your teen the opportunity to do a thing doesn’t mean they will actually do it! But when they know their peers will be doing it together, they’re much more likely to engage and to keep it up. Setting aside a specific day and time for SAT prep training in a live group is a powerful way to create accountability and follow-through.

Your live classes will also cover logistical issues such as when to register for the exam, whether or not you should send your score to college admissions offices, and all the other questions you might have about the SAT system and procedures. Plus you’ll spend some of your class time discussing test day readiness so that you’re fully prepared for every moment and nothing catches you off guard. Your test day plan starts with a sensible breakfast, continues throughout every aspect of the test-taking experience, and ends when you leave the exam room after acing the test.

In addition to your SAT prep classes with Jake, you’ll also have on-demand online training in your Quick Start SAT Prep Course to teach you all the essential things you need to know about SAT success and get you ready to make the most of the live classes. While the Quick Start videos and resources will be very helpful, combining this with the ongoing practice and training you get from your live classes is what really makes the magic happen.

100% Money Back Guarantee

If you’ve spent any time looking into what different SAT prep providers offer, then you’ll have noticed that the big-name SAT prep courses and tutoring companies offer guarantees that sound almost too good to be true… like a 1500+ score guarantee, or a 200-point score improvement guarantee.

Let’s be honest: nobody can guarantee that every single one of their students will improve their score by a predetermined number of points. Nobody can guarantee that all of their students will score above 1500 on the test. Because every student is unique, and every SAT test experience is unique for each student. 

In reality, nobody can guarantee that a specific student will even show up on test day, or that they’ll answer any of the questions correctly if they do show up!

When these companies say they guarantee a certain SAT score (or score increase), what they really mean is that they’ll do something for you if you don’t achieve that score – like giving you a refund, or giving you extra training so you can try again on the next SAT test date. 

Far from being a guarantee of success, those other companies’ score guarantees only apply if you fail. 

Just like the College Board phrases SAT questions to confuse and mislead the test candidates, a lot of SAT prep providers use slippery phrasing to make their guarantees sound more impressive than they actually are. 

And the other thing they like to keep pretty quiet about is just how many hoops you have to jump through to make a claim under their guarantee terms and conditions. So if you didn’t score the promised 1500 points and you ask them for a refund, you’ll hear excuses like “It doesn’t count because you missed ten minutes of a class one time, and that means you invalidated your guarantee.”

Jake SAT Prep takes a very different view of how a guarantee should work.

  • No overblown promises
  • No deceptive wording
  • No burdensome criteria
  • No excuses
  • Just a fair and honest guarantee 

Here it is…

When you sign up for the Jake SAT Prep Online Program, you’ll be completely satisfied with the training you (or your teen) receive. Or you’ll get 100% of your money back if you decide to withdraw from the program within the first 30 days.

Frequently Asked Questions (and all the answers)

Q: How soon can I begin the program?

A: You can start today — you’ll have full access to the Quick Start SAT Prep Course from the moment you enroll, and your live online classes will begin within 7 days of your enrollment.

Q: When and where do the classes happen?

A: Your live online class will run from 7:30pm to 9:30pm Eastern Time, every Monday. (That’s 4:30-6:30pm Pacific Time, 5:30-7:30pm Mountain Time, 6:30-8:30pm Central Time.) We meet in an online classroom, and you’ll receive a link via email to join each class.

Q: How long should I plan to stay enrolled in the program?

A: With SAT prep, more is more. The more practice questions you’re exposed to, the more likely you are to make the right connections on test day. Because the SAT requires very different thinking and reasoning styles than what most students are used to, you need to hear these powerful and novel ideas again and again (in slightly different ways, on slightly different questions) in order to become completely comfortable and natural with using them in the moment on test day. 

Jake will share vital insights and game-changing ideas starting from your very first class, so the more classes you attend, the better you’ll absorb the key lessons. Every new Jake SAT Prep student comes into the program with a unique combination of knowledge, experience, and confidence levels, so one student may feel completely comfortable sitting the SAT after 6 weeks, whereas another student may benefit from taking 20 weeks of classes before the exam.

Q: Are there any prerequisites?

A: No, there are no prerequisites. Anybody can join this program, at any level of education or SAT experience. In fact, the things that make the SAT tricky are consistent for all students, regardless of age or ability – and that’s why these group classes are so effective! Some of Jake’s students are high school juniors or seniors who have taken the SAT test before and are training to increase their score, while others are sophomores or even freshmen making an early start on their SAT preparation.

Q: Is this program up-to-date for the latest changes to the SAT test?

A: Yes! All of the questions and answers used for training are drawn from recent real-life SATs. With every new update to the SAT test, no matter how small, Jake adapts the materials and methods he teaches to align with the latest changes. He also sits the SAT several times per year, to ensure that he has the most current knowledge and direct personal experience of the exam. 

Q: Does the program include SAT test registration?

A: Because every student’s situation and preferences are different, SAT test registration is not included in the Jake SAT Prep Online Program. You will need to register with the College Board to sit the SAT. Jake will give you reminders of upcoming registration deadlines, as well as insight into when students should sit their first or second SAT exam.

Q: Is Jake available for extra help outside of class hours?

A: Jake understands that students may have questions that are particular to their individual needs and circumstances. You can reach out to him via email between your weekly classes, and he will respond as promptly as possible. 

Knowledgeable, entertaining and exciting

“After taking Jake Berman’s SAT prep class, my daughter improved both her reading and math scores by over a hundred points each. Jake was not only professional, proficient and extremely knowledgeable, but he was also entertaining and humorous. As a math teacher myself, I know how challenging it is to excite students about taking a test (especially a 4 hr. long one); Jake does it effortlessly.”

–Julia M.

The best choice for our son’s future

“The choice of who to trust your child’s academic future to is a very difficult one. Essentially that is what you’re doing when you choose a particular company or individual to prepare your child for the so important SAT and/or ACT exams.  The decision to entrust Jake Berman with that task was perhaps the best choice we could have made for our son’s future…. His enthusiasm and knowledge of these exams is truly amazing.”

– David M.

First-choice university acceptance

“When my son needed to prepare for the SAT, I wanted to find a teacher who was patient, consistent and experienced.  Jake fit that bill to the letter!  He is a wonderful teacher – enthusiastic and approachable… Jake’s expertise and his strategy guided my son to success.  From his PSAT score to the SAT score he submitted on his college applications, he improved by 500 points! He was accepted into the university that was his first choice!”

–Lois S.

Different to other classes – highly recommended

“Last summer we had invested over $600 dollars for a SAT/ACT class that turned out to be a waste of time and money for our son. We could have purchased the review book and handed it to him and saved over $600 dollars… After sharing my experience with a friend, she recommended Jake’s class. We finally decided to register our son since this one seemed different from the past class… We would highly recommend this class to any student preparing for the SAT or ACT. The proof was in his test scores. He increased his total SAT score 210 points.”

–Marie C.

A 500-point score improvement 

“I have worked as an Admissions Officer and a High School Guidance Counselor for over twenty years. During that time, I invariably came into contact with a variety of different SAT/ACT test prep options. I would often ask my students about their experiences. Without a doubt, it was the name Jake Berman I kept hearing over and over again… It was not until I experienced Jake’s personality from a parent’s perspective that I truly understood… With his mental preparation complemented by the academic, he transformed my traditionally poor test taker son into a confident student. From start to finish, my son’s PSAT’s scores increased over 500 points in total!”

– Gerri L.

Knows the exam better than anyone

“Jake really knows his stuff and presents lots of cool tricks and techniques to taking the test.  He is very enthusiastic, entertaining, and knows the exam better than anyone!”

– Kasey M.

Allowed me to consider better colleges

“When I first registered for Jake SAT Prep, I was an inexperienced and perplexed student who dreaded having to prepare for standardized testing. After attending the classes, I can honestly say that not only were they insightful, but enjoyable. Jake is passionate about teaching, which made class a very fun experience; his enthusiasm regarding everything SAT and his belief that each of us would be successful made me just as eager as he was! …In March, I saw a 240 point increase on my exam. Jake SAT Prep has given me a new level of SAT expertise and allowed me to consider colleges that probably wouldn’t have accepted me without my improved SAT score.”

– Christine P.

Engaging and memorable training

“Without this class, I would have never felt as confident as I did going into the exams. Jake taught me so many useful test taking tips and definitely prepared me for the material covered on the SAT. Not only was I prepared, but the class was also fun. Jake made sure to teach the material in an engaging way that would help me to actually remember and apply it!” 

– Brittany H.

Couldn’t have done it without Jake

“I honestly don’t believe that I could have been so successful with anyone else but Jake. His experience alone lent incredible insight… I’ve seen my scores go from a 1340 to a 1500 with a 790 on critical reading and a 710 on math… I really was sad when the class ended. I never had a teacher who could explain things the way Jake did in such an easy to understand way.”

– Erin L.
