Spanish SAT Subject Test Tutoring

The SAT Subject Tests in Spanish evaluate skills in Spanish grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. A student with a strong background in the language—including at least two or three years of formal study in high school—might consider taking a Spanish Subject Test.

Our Spanish Subject Test Tutoring Program

Our educational approach to the Spanish Subject Tests emphasizes key vocabulary and grammatical structures. Our tutors tailor the program to each student’s familiarity with Spanish. This course of study allows our students to improve their overall knowledge of Spanish in the process of mastering the requirements of the exam.

Meetings, in-session exercises, homework, and proctored, full-length practice tests all provide opportunities for the exercise and refinement of language skills. As the program progresses, tutors focus on the student's particular areas of difficulty, such as the indicative versus the subjunctive, the preterit versus the imperfect, pronouns, and prepositions.

Contact us to speak with a program consultant about your goals and schedule a diagnostic Spanish Subject Test. If you are unsure about whether to take the Spanish Subject Test with or without the listening component, we will help you make a decision based on diagnostic test scores, coursework, and time each student has spent in a Spanish-speaking environment.
