About Our Instructor:
Bethany Carlson has taught SAT prep for almost 20 years. At Achieva College Prep Center in San Francisco, she developed original curriculum. Later, Bethany mastered and delivered proprietary techniques for Taming the SAT and Kaplan. When working, she combines the best practices from all of them to create student-centered lessons.
Bethany’s experience teaching for several companies has given her a variety of tools to help young people study and reduce their test anxiety. She is thoroughly familiar with the recent content and scoring changes to the SAT. Perhaps most importantly, she knows how to keep high school students awake and engaged in multi-hour SAT lessons.
In addition, when Bethany teaches SAT math preparation, she tailors content review and strategy instruction to students’ test goals. A student who is very close to a perfect math score needs different preparation than a student who is starting from a below-average score.
