About SAT Prep

The SAT Prep Program is an intensive six-week commitment. It is designed to assist high school students attending Baltimore City Public School in preparing for the SAT through small group and one-on-one tutoring sessions. SAT Prep tutors will teach strategies, tips, and techniques for each section covered in the exam so students will be prepared when taking the SAT.

The SAT Prep Program is a biannually run program (fall and spring) that pairs Johns Hopkins undergrads with one to two Baltimore City Public School students. It offers individualized help with SAT problems and test taking strategies. This program prioritizes students currently enrolled in their junior year of high school but does accept seniors and sophomores if there are any vacant spots.

Become a Tutor

Are you a JHU student who remembers taking the SAT exam? Are you interested in helping others succeed on the SAT? Consider becoming an SAT Prep tutor!

SAT Prep tutors are provided the opportunity to:

  • assist students in improving academically and emotionally
  • develop communication and leadership skills
  • meet new people and make a commitment to helping others
  • learn about yourself by gaining confidence as a tutor and mentor
  • make a positive impact and help a student achieve their academic dreams

I enjoyed having the opportunity to help high school students prepare for the SAT while having a positive impact on the community. I think the students benefited from this experience since they were able to receive one on one training in the subjects they struggled with most and the class could be tailored to a particular student’s needs. ~Tutor, Adam Blakney ’20
