February 2015 English & Reading Workshop

The English and reading workshop will be held on Monday, February 2, 2015, 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, Birmingham, 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.  It is very important that they utilize the strategies learned to apply to an additional practice test before test day on the 7th. Please contact Laura at Laura@allpencilsdown.com if you have further questions or register here on our site.

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.
