SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to a premier educational experience, students across the country have three new SAT options. Tom Clements Tutoring (http://www.tctutoring.net), author of the top-selling "How to Write a Killer SAT Essay" and the "Killer SAT Grammar Game" app for iPhones, has just released a FREE series on YouTube of his nationally-recognized SAT Essay Workshop.
Free YouTube Series
Clements, a former college English teacher and experienced educator who's helped thousands of students ace their SATs, covers the fundamentals of two-page essay writing using real students in an interactive classroom setting. Students can now see firsthand -- and at no cost -- the strategies and techniques that make for a top-scoring essay.
Basing the workshop on his award-winning book "How to Write a Killer SAT Essay", Tom Clements breaks the SAT essay down into a series of eleven short (5 to 10 minute) YouTube lessons, each lesson pinpointing essential components of high-quality composition. High school students can now "sit in" on these lessons, viewing them one at a time or watching them consecutively.
Not just a talking head, Clements conducts a dynamic session involving give-and-take with his students as they discuss and analyze the seven Rules of Engagement required for a top-scoring SAT essay. A complete sample essay is discussed and analyzed. In a little over an hour total, students can be up and running with a full complement of pragmatic writing techniques applicable to any prompt the College Board throws at them.
"The SAT essay is a game and I teach students how to win -- big time," says Tom Clements. "Emphasizing basic rules of composition -- structure, narrative flow, transitions, subordination, and details, details, details -- I teach students to compose high-scoring essays quickly and easily. In fact, I take the fear out of essay writing, turning composition into an accomplishment rather than a chore."
