If you're a high-school student and you want to ace your SAT Verbal (Reading and Grammar) and secure your dream college, this is the most important thing you'll read all day.⬇️⬇️⬇️


If you’ve answered YES to more than one question, you’ve come to the right place. I can understand how you feel because I clearly remember feeling COMPLETELY lost in the SAT’s verbal section.


When I was preparing for the SAT for the first time, I thought that most reading questions were open to more than one interpretation, and choosing one answer over the other was complete insanity 🤯. This was me in early 2016⬇️⬇️⬇️

Of course, I would constantly run out of time on the SAT reading. Every passage would take me 15 minutes while history passages did NOT make sense at all - no matter how much time I’ve spent☹️. Paired passages presented a separate challenge: the last few questions asked to compare two passages which were especially brutal. I felt ashamed and inadequate not knowing HOW TO IMPROVE my SAT reading.

Every time I took a practice test, I felt an acute blow to my confidence. I wondered what was wrong with me...

How could I be so stupid?

How could the SAT be so brutal?

How does everyone else just seems to"get it"?

Grammar rules seemed obscure and subjective.

I always thought that writing was more of an art than science, so punctuation was driven by feeling and not rules. Why couldn’t I use a semicolon (;)? How is the single comma better than a dash or comma + FANBOYS? Who are FANBOYS? What are modifiers? What is the best introduction/conclusion to the paragraph? How am I supposed to know?


Although I did have access to the SAT Bluebook, many explanations in it sounded overly academic and would often make me even more confused. I could not score above 600 on the verbal section on every practice test I took.

However, I was determined. I went on the hunt for resources, strategies, lessons, and tips. I almost lived in the library. With the help of Reddit, Erica Meltzer's books, the SAT Black Book, College Panda, YouTube, reading comprehension training, and many more resources, I was able to reach my goal in June 2017!

Having achieved it the hard way (using books and self-study resources), I wanted to become the source of solutions for other students. I started contributing to Reddit and YouTube. I also began tutoring the SAT. Over the years, I have helped hundreds of students reach their goals. Below, you can find a few "BEFORE AND AFTERs" of my former students.

What is SAT VERBAL???

If you are feeling excited, that makes two of us! I am stocked to announce a new way YOU can work with me. In early 2021, I decided to open my services to online group lessons that will happen LIVE every week. I plan on hosting 10+ LIVE lessons (both reading and grammar-focused) each month, which averages to 2.5 lessons a week.

What if I can't make it to the LIVE class?

Don't worry! The recording will be available to you at any time. Additionally, you can always get direct tutoring from me through ASK Katya. More on that later.

Why teach the SAT Verbal?

The SAT test is NOT designed as a regular high school test, and therefore you shouldn’t be studying for the SAT the same way you study for your high school exams.

There is a FUNDAMENTAL difference between your English class reading discussion and the SAT reading section! The skills you’ll need on the SAT verbal often DON’T get introduced at school. Unless you have a phenomenal English teacher who taught you to approach reading comprehension questions as a system of ideas. These teachers are hard to come by. Sad. I know.

But I have some good news for you. I can be your English teacher every week!

If you want to improve your score on the SAT, you should join the SAT Verbal. As a member, you will get access to weekly live classes with me AND get a chance to ask me questions in the ASK Katya section.


The College Board Explanations Are Purposefully Unclear.

Think about it. Imagine you and I were running a billion-dollar company (The College Board) whose success relies on students making ample mistakes on every test. No matter how smart they are, and no matter how much they study. Would we (the business owners) be invested in opening the rules of the game? Of course not!

You see, the SAT’s success rests on keeping the reasons why answer choice D is correct and A is wrong a secret. If the College Board were to explain exactly what constitutes the correct answer on the reading or grammar sections, they would be chipping away at their business model. To help you navigate why some answers are wrong and others are right, I added the ASK Katya section to the SAT Verbal.

ASK Katya section lets you send me unlimited explanation requests. I promise to respond in 48 hours or less. This might be my favorite section. In ASK Katya, you will see how the College Board uses repeating patterns to design the questions and answer choices. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to identify correct answers without fail.

Why do we share answers to your questions?

If you've struggled with a question, other students might struggle with it too. Every time you ask a question in ASK Katya, the question AND the answer will be posted on the platform for others to learn as well. This creates a fantastic opportunity of learning from each other's questions and enriching your knowledge of the test. My goal is to create a community of students who share their knowledge, insights and learn from one another.

What you'll learn?

The main objective of the SAT Verbal is to teach you how to consistently identify correct answers on the SAT Reading and Grammar sections. To achieve this goal, we will spend time Understanding the weakness of multiple-choice tests like the SAT. Additionally, we will master strategies for test-taking that exploit the SAT's main weakness.

You will also receive

  • Training on general topics like time - management, study schedule, test dates, goal scores, etc.
  • Specific training on every question type like the main idea, inference, evidence-based, vocabulary in context, punctuation, logic, summary, etc.
  • A discussion of smart guessing on the SAT
  • A cheat sheet of rules
  • A list of items to bring to the test
  • Pre-exam meditation to assuage test anxiety

How will my training be delivered?

You will be invited to Live ZOOM classes with the master tutor Katya Seberson. You can join classes live or watch the recording at your convenience.

Frequently Asked Questions


What does an average Monthly Calendar Look like?
You’ll get access to the Full Lesson Calendar as soon as you join. Here is a sample calendar with approximate times of classes.
How long should I stay as a member to achieve my goal score?
Every student has a different level of skill coming into the program, so it greatly depends on your current ability. Some students may only need a few lessons to gain 100+ points on their SAT verbal. Others will need a year of dedicated work to reach their 750 or 800 on the SAT verbal. For a slow reader and with poor comprehension skills and limited vocabulary, it will take more time to advance. In general, I suggest 3 months of membership to ensure that you develop effective reading and test-taking skills.
Do you Still Tutor Privately One-on-One?
Yes, working with students privately is very important for my practice and self-development as a tutor. I derived many insights that I now teach in the SAT Verbal from teaching my clients one-on-one. Although I had to reduce the number of private students, I still manage to work with 5 - 6 people every week. You can inquire about private tutoring here: https://sebersonmethod.com/p/tutoring
Will you be covering math as a part of the membership?
You can ask me a math question in ASK Katya, but there will be no LIVE math lessons.
Can I get a refund if I am unhappy with the course?
Of course! If you are unsatisfied with the quality of my content or support, you can get a full refund within the first 30 days. You can email me directly at [email protected]utivemind.net and we'll sort it out.
