English and Reading Workshop

The English and reading workshop will be held on Tuesday, September 9 from 4:30-8:00 pm. The cost is $195. The workshop is designed to emphasize the strategies and content of the English and reading sections only. The course is structured in a way that is equivalent to the instruction received in 3.5 hours of private tutoring. The workshop location is:

Brookview Church

3699 Belmont Road

Bham, Alabama 35210

Students will receive slightly more English practice than reading because the explanations for the grammar from the instructor are needed more heavily than the reading comprehension questions, but all reading strategies will be taught and over an hour of practice will be allotted for the reading as well. IMPORTANT: students will receive an additional test to take home for practice and it is very important that they utilize the strategies learned to apply to an additional practice test before test day on the 13th. Please contact Laura at Laura@allpencilsdown.com if you have further questions or register here on our site.

The PSAT test is a very important test for high school juniors and it serves as a qualifying part of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. AllPencilsDown has prepared a prep course specifically to help students get ready for this test.

Course Dates and Times:

Tuesday, September 23: 4:30pm - 7:45pm

Tuesday, September 30: 4:30pm - 7:45pm

Tuesday, October 7: 4:30pm - 7:45pm

Note:  The preparation for both the PSAT and SAT tests is identical because the material is the same. However, the format and scoring of the real test is different. Many students find it very helpful to schedule the real SAT test shortly after preparing for the PSAT.

Laura and George

We’ve learned that prior to committing to actual practice and instruction, students and parents often have general questions and concerns about the nature of the test, about the productivity of preparation, and about the feasibility of practicing online. We’ve established a video based question/answer segment to help you get started and to help you gain more knowledge about those normal concerns.
