Challenge

SAT score is a key factor for students to access to desired colleges and secure their future career. SAT tutoring and test practicing is essential for scoring high in SAT test. But, students from low-income, immigrant families, parents with law paid jobs, and with less education and language barriers have less or no access to SAT tutoring and college preparation because their parents cannot afford. Thus, they have no equal opportunity to access their desired college, as those who can afford.

Solution

SAT is vital to access to colleges and a successful career. We provide students from immigrant family's equal opportunity to access desired colleges to secure their career via SAT tutoring and test practicing to help with deeper understanding of problem-solving, critical reading and thinking, vocabulary, writing structure, and time management. Thus, student will score high in SAT to have access to desired colleges and career, and transfer themselves from disadvantaged families to inspire others.

Long-Term Impact

In summer 2015, these students will score high in SAT test and start their senior year confidently to secure their desired colleges. By 2017, parents will be aware and supportive to their children that enable more disadvantaged students to join this project and to become positive agents in their community.
