reaction to a great score


Great SAT scores don’t just come from how much math you know or how good a writer you are. They come from understanding the test and exactly what data points it’s designed to measure.

To succeed on the SAT, preparation is key. Chyten’s SAT prep curriculum includes strategies and tips refined from over 30 years of industry knowledge and experience.

At Chyten, you may prepare for one or more parts of the test, or for the whole test. Unlike other tutors or companies, Chyten employs strategic methods for understanding and solving problems. Thus, instruction at Chyten is inherently different from instruction that merely offers online portals, such as Khan Academy.
