WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY ABOUT US

​”Before I joined PANO’s SAT program, I suffered from always getting pretty low scores, and I was devastated. However, upon enrolling in PANO’s SAT program, I learned ways to improve not only my SAT score, but also my English abilities. My SAT English score went up by more than 200 points! I saw a huge improvement in the grammar section after the grammar lessons and the practice problems that we went through with Andy. I also found myself reading much faster than before, and I can get the key points easily.”

During my time at PANO, I was able to learn more than what I expected. Although I was struggling at first, but the faculties were helping me to fix my mistakes and encouraging me to believe in myself. By the end of the lesson, I significantly improved my scores in both reading and writing. Besides that, I also figured out a way to write good SAT essays. Furthermore, I got to meet some of the coolest people. Overall, I can say it was a great experience at PANO!

When I joined PANO’s program, the most impressive part was the small-group course. There were only four students in my class, so I had more chances to answer questions. Due to this kind of learning environment, I was able to keep thinking and my teacher helped me get through practice problems. Andy is a patient and attentive teacher who explained each practice problems with great patience, especially on Reading & Grammar Section. It was hard for me to understand the articles before I joined this program, but now, I could understand the structure and the contents more easily. Besides, in the grammar section, I knew more about the test rules and the skills. Also, PANO’s well-organized textbooks and notes enabled me to see the key points clearly. (At first, I thought Andy is annoying. The reason was that if you wanted to get 100 points on the SAT, you needed to take the questions seriously than ever. However, after the ten-day course, Andy was not just a mentor, but also a friend.) PANO’s program had great impact on me. I completed tasks with efficiency in a short time and also learned a lot of things.

I think Azusa’s teaching style is that she customizes classes extremely to individual students. For example, for me, I don’t really like to start from the very beginning about what the grammar rules are because I know a large portion of it already. So, the way that Azusa customizes classes for me is that she focuses on the problems I got wrong during mock tests and I look them over myself before she checks them with me as well. The way we have class is that we don’t have long hour classes, we only do around 1.5 hours each week. I think it’s extremely sufficient for me to cover everything instead of starting everything from the basics.
I think my major struggle with SAT is that I read a little bit slower than normal people so I kind of struggle the most in the reading section. I think the way Pano organizes the SAT classes is that they separate the reading questions into different types and they talk about different steps of approaches to deal with those questions, so then it kind of implants a formula within our brains. Once we see the questions, we’re able to formulate that and bring out the answers in the most possible and fastest way.

The materials from Pano are all pretty good. They give great examples and the explanations are all pretty clear and comprehensible. I think I’ve made significant progress on my time management and how to eliminate wrong choices. My reading comprehension is also improved significantly I think.

After finishing this course, I felt like my reading speed increased significantly. Because the teacher times us during our lessons, we have to finish the questions before time runs out. I felt like I read more quickly after each lesson and also understood where the SAT wants me to focus on for details.

My major struggle with the SAT is my biggest struggle on the SAT is the reading section ,but after taking PANO’s summer courses, I became more familiar with the material since the teacher told us about reading strategies to how to approach the questions. This helped us grasp the main areas on which the SAT was testing us.

Brad

This course was highly beneficial because I initially had no faith in my SAT test taking abilities. After taking this class,I felt like previously challenging questions , now seemed easy thanks to the teacher’s comprehensive and detailed explanations.

​Over the month, the class was very exciting and engaging thanks to teacher Andy’s active and fun personality. He was very accomodating by using very simple explanations to help us clarify our difficulties with challenging wording and questions.

At first, I thought SAT would be a really challenging mission for me to achieve or master. But after taking the one month lecture at PANO, I feel like there is nothing “impossible.” If you have a strong mind to work hard and try things boldly, everything is possible! To be honest, I’m not a person who is smart and loves to study, I often procrastinate on some of my school works. But studying at PANO gives me a kind of motivation to make progress every day, and that also causes improvements in my grades every time I’m taking the practice SAT tests. Hope that I can still have the same “nonstop” spirit and always work harder in the future!!
