May we suggest the following courses?

SAT Seminar

This five-hour seminar will allow students to become more familiar with the SAT, and give them a chance to improve their scores. Students could benefit from even a small score increase in scholarships and invitations to enroll in special honors courses and programs. Experience shows that students who take this seminar achieve an average score increase of 5 to 20 points on the PSAT, and 50 to 200 points on the SAT. Of course, the individual score increase depends on the amount of time and effort that students spend working with the materials they will receive at this seminar. The ZAPS Learning Company has been the leading provider of ACT/SAT/PSAT test-preparation seminars since 1984.
