Our Test Prep Students
PANO’s test prep courses help students improve their test scores through a long term approach focusing on study habits.
I got 1590 on my SAT. PANO’s teacher helped with the specific struggles each student was facing; when I struggled with time management, he taught simple yet effective strategies that helped drastically reduce the time I spent on each reading passage. He would point to the previous exams and teach us how the tests were designed for us to better tackle the SAT.
Before I joined PANO’s SAT program, I suffered from always getting pretty low scores. 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 PANO’s teacher. I also found myself reading much faster than before, and I can get the key points easily.
In small-group course, I had more chances to answer questions. Due to this learning environment, I was able to keep thinking and my teacher helped me get through practice problems. PANO’s teacher who explained each practice problems with great patience, especially on Reading & Grammar Section. Now, I could understand the structure and the contents more easily. I knew more about the test rules and the skills. PANO’s well-organized textbooks and notes enabled me to see the key points clearly.
PANO’s teacher 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 PANO’s teacher 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. I think it’s extremely sufficient for me to cover everything instead of starting everything from the basics. 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, we’re able to formulate that and bring out the answers in the most possible and fastest way.
I feel the atmosphere during class is great! Due to the small size of the class, there’s not many interruptions. Whenever we are unsure of anything, we can ask the teacher directly and receive an answer right away. Every student who participated was able to gain a clear understanding of the course content. The greatest help I got was in the problem solving techniques such as during the reading section. Prior to PANO I always did everything in order, such as reading the articles then answering the questions. However, after coming to PANO, I learned how to grasp the key points of the articles. My mock test scores prior to PANO’s classes compared to after had a 100 point difference!
My greatest challenge for the SAT was math. However, PANO’s teacher patiently helped me understand my issues with math. Afterwards, each 1 on 1 class session, the teacher would help me break down my weaknesses and point out the areas I could improve on. My SAT improved 210 points!
PANO’s SAT class was very helpful to me. Originally, I never had much confidence in my SAT performance, but after taking this class, I felt as if those impossible questions were now extremely easy to understand. The teacher’s teaching method was very easy to grasp and understand.
The teaching materials that PANO prepared were all incredibly useful. The teacher will give good examples and explanations during class and the breakdowns are easy to understand. I feel that I made major improvements with time management and eliminating the wrong answers. I also feel as if I have a clearer understanding of the reading section.
I improved 190 points on the test. The largest hurdle I have in the SAT is the reading section. But after taking PANO’s summer crash course, I was able to improve a lot. The teacher taught us a lot of techniques and pointed out some traps which might appear in the questions, and allowed us to better understand the SAT’s key points.
I learned a lot from taking this course, because the teacher will break down all the types of questions in the SAT in great detail. The teacher will also tell us about the key words which appear in the questions so that when we encounter those questions, we have an easier time finding the answer. In addition, my greatest improvement after taking this course was that my reading speed got faster. The teacher would always track our time to make sure that we completed reading an article within a certain time limit.
