As students reach their last few years in high school, the anticipation for the SAT can be quite daunting. The exam is one of the main items that colleges look at when scanning applications, so many college hopefuls turn to tutoring programs to help them prepare.
Who better to teach high school students about the SAT than individuals who recently took the exam? Students from Wesleyan University have stepped up and are helping low-income students around the Northeast to prep for the exam, according to The Wesleyan Argus.
The program is called Let's Get Ready (LGR), and is meant to bring more resources to various high school students so they are not at a disadvantage when it comes to the exam.
"It's kind of like running a small not-for-profit organization," participant Elana Metsch-Ampel told the news source. "Our biggest challenge is retention. The subject matter we're working with is the SAT, and high school students are not always thrilled about that, so we have to keep it fun and exciting for students and coaches."
