SAT TESTIMONIALS

“I am thrilled to recommend Ma’am Swati as an outstanding English SAT exam instructor. She possesses an exceptional ability to break down complex English concepts into easy to understand components, which helped me grasp not only the material but also excel in my SAT exam. I found her passion for teaching infectious and she goes above and beyond to provide personalized attention, constructive feedback, targeted strategies tailored to my strengths and areas of improvement. More than a teacher she becomes your friend who you can have fun conversations about life with. Her classroom is a perfect place to study – it makes everything less stressful and intimidating so you can focus on learning in a more positive way.”

“Overall, I thought that the classes were highly beneficial in my SAT prep, and I would not have gained the same proficiency and confidence through other means. The classes themselves were very productive, and I was able to get all my doubts cleared. I also appreciate how accommodating and understanding you were. The most valuable part of our classes was when I was able to clarify my reasoning with you and practice approaching questions systematically. Being able to discuss the logic and reasoning behind the questions was extremely helpful in my test prep. On that note, I also really appreciate how you simplified the test into various question types and strategies for both the reading and grammar sections. I found this simplification immensely helpful for me, and I wish more teachers were as attentive and thorough in that regard. I also really appreciate the attention and care you provided throughout our classes. In addition, I appreciate how accommodating and empathetic you were with my summer program and changing your schedule to give me a break. Lastly, I liked how you constantly tracked my progress and focused directly on my weaknesses. In conclusion, I would recommend Ms. Swati because of her close attention to students and her engaging teaching and thorough curriculum.”

“I was very apprehensive about taking the SAT because I had only two months to prepare for it, but I found the perfect guide, and that made it possible for me to get acquainted with the portion and the test in a short span of time. Not only did Miss Swati teach exceptionally well, but she also always reminded me to have fun and be a good person. I never got stressed out because the classes were well-paced, and I also got enough practice. Overall, I was satisfied and pleased to learn from Miss Swati, and she was the perfect mentor to guide me through my preparation time.”

My first demo class with Miss Swati had me enthralled completely. When mid-June came and I started regular SAT classes in a group, I found learning fun despite having to sit for 4 hours during our SAT BOOT CAMP (until our schools reopened). Although I had few doubts and difficulties, I was always able to solve them and walk the path of significant improvement. Ms. Swati taught me that the SAT is not difficult if you are hardworking, goal oriented and disciplined to studying. Otherwise, everything becomes a turmoil and practice goes to waste. I would always look forward to going to class. I have *never* thought about SAT classes as “UGH OH NO 4 hours of boredom” instead, I have thought of SAT classes at Bridges as “Oh why not try and it will help me do better and grow so I will not be standing in the same place”. Everyone says SAT is difficult, but that is not true at Bridges. Ms. Swati shares the right SAT knowledge and helps develop the skills required for the SAT test in her students in a more interesting way than Khan Academy, Google, or whichever source a student may use to study. I feel far more confident about the SAT than I did before I joined the SAT prep. I knew that if I had to go to the USA, I had to do the SAT, which I hated until I joined Ms. Swati’s class. I would highly recommend Bridges International. I cannot wait to do the SAT, in fact, thanks to Ms. Swati I fancy the SAT.”

“I think one of the better decisions made by my mother was to enrol me with Ms. Swati. Initially I was hesitant, but she won me over with her kindness and cookies. What I liked about the teaching was that it was methodical and well thought out. The system covered English first, followed by Math. Not only is she meticulous and systematic but also goes beyond the point of duty. It was never a system of strict adherence time. We often sat for extra time going over our problems, and she always openly welcomed me to take extra classes to clarify my difficulties. She always ensured we remained on top of our work, constantly calling to check up on us. The focus was to ensure that we geared up for success not merely tuition. We were a small group, yet it felt like private tuition. She also gave us simulated SAT exams all through the month of September, once the course was completed. She regularly provided feedback to my mother which I think delighted her. Thus, while I thought I required no help for the SAT, she proved me completely wrong!”

“I took Miss Swati’s classes (Bridges International) after having given the SAT before, to improve my scores and reduce the mistakes and technical errors I was making. The effort she put in was incredible. Even when she went on vacation, she remained in constant contact with me through Skype and worked on sample papers with me. When I got a certain type of question wrong, we would practice it repeatedly until I got every similar question right in an exercise. This persistence helped me gain confidence and to understand where and how I was going wrong. Furthermore, she is the most personally involved teacher I have ever come across. She was very easy to talk to and she understood the difficulties I faced in balancing the SAT with my schoolwork. In fact, she even helped me manage my workload on occasion. Most importantly, her involvement and optimism helped make my classes more fun than I thought they would be and made me more inclined to do the home assignments and work harder. Initially, I did not want to take SAT classes at all, but the tips and techniques Miss Swati taught me definitely helped me improve, (SAT SuperScore: 2130), particularly in the writing section.”

“When at class, Swati Mam is more like a friend who listens and helps you without ordering you around. You can be comfortable around her. Her teaching methods are great and make work easier and fun. I have learnt so many new vocabulary words for SAT”

Rishab Kamath

“Dear Miss Swati, I wanted to thank you for your invaluable guidance and support in improving my English SAT skills. The classes with you were interactive and I really enjoyed them a lot whilst also learning a lot on the way. The way you simplified otherwise complicated topics was really beneficial to me. PS: The chocolates in every class were a great addition, so thank you for that!”

Kavish Parikh

“My scores jumped by over 250 points after doing the SAT prep with Ms. Swati at Bridges International. They have been helpful – especially solving test papers in class made me more confident when going for the actual test. The tests are not only practice, but they also show your progress, strengths and weaknesses and can even assess your guessing and eliminating skills. Adequate material was provided for the vocabulary, and everything is taught in a very comprehensible manner. The teaching is very thorough and personal. Miss Swati’s everything you are looking for if you want to take the SAT. Her classes are not only interactive but also well organized and target oriented.

Ms. Swati I  found  your teaching methods effectively covered all the fundamental grammar topics, which provided a solid foundation for me in the entire English section. The interactive approach enhanced my engagement and comprehension. Additionally, I felt that the personalised feedback further supported my progress.”

Grishma

“It is hard to put into words the experience I have had in the past few months. It has been so much fun just learning about all these various aspects to something as mundane as SAT. To be completely honest, I was thinking that there would be a lot more work and a lot less fun coming into this, but I am leaving feeling as if I have grown as a person and as a student. I really hope that students continue to gain this experience from you. I really liked that you could be honest, open, and truthful with us. It made us feel that we were equals, even in a classroom setting… I was very content with the way everything was taught, and I am left feeling more confident in myself.

I thank you a lot for helping me and guiding me through the maze of SAT. (Score: 1430 in my first attempt. English: 710, Math 720).”

“Miss Swati is a wonderful teacher. Her classes were extremely helpful. She ensured and cleared all my doubts after the practice tests and after every session. The mock tests every week made me more confident for my SAT. She made my SAT preparation easy, and I could focus on my college academics at the same time. Her friendly nature makes learning fun and interesting. She is the best tutor for English I have met so far.

Thanks Swati Miss for helping me get 1340/1600 in my first attempt.”

Prarthna Jaggi

“English has always been my Achilles heel. I have never been fond of reading, writing or even studying the language. However, the SAT exam demands a student to have an exceptionally good understanding of the language and know difficult vocabulary words. This made this an extremely challenging exam for me, and I was able to score only a 1700 in my first attempt without any coaching.

Any student longing to go abroad understands the importance of the SAT exam and knows that he or she needs a score of at least 2100 to get admission in a good college. Thus, my parents decided to put me for SAT English classes. However, the question now was which teacher to go to. My brother had told us that SAT group classes were not helpful at all. Thus, my parents decided to put me under Ms. Swati’s coaching on a one-on-one basis.

In my first meeting with Ms. Swati, she told me that her 2100 course which I had opted for would be the most rigorous 50 hours of my life, this is not an understatement. Ms Swati’s friendly and firm nature makes learning under her both fun and effective. Many times we would begin the class talking about the latest movies or the latest trends before we would begin studying. This helped me get closer to her and made the class more enjoyable. One instance that I can never forget was a meditation app on her phone which she made me use when I was really stressed close to the exam. This friendly nature of hers made the rigorous course enjoyable.

Despite this friendly attitude, Ms. Swati would never compromise on work ethics. She is extremely particular herself and ensured I too was. Her creative methods of teaching and emphasis on colour coding and making of word cards for vocabulary was of immense help. Her methods not only made me feel comfortable with the language but also made me feel confident about myself. She always had more than enough material and practice tests which helped build my confidence about the SAT exam. Overall, it was a lovely experience for me, and I am sure I shall be pleased when my SAT scores come out.”

“Just two months before my daughter appeared for her SAT exam, I was frantically looking for a good SAT Coaching Institute. I checked out a few classes but didn’t quite like them as I wanted something more individualised and intensive. I then came across Miss Swati and was impressed by the methodical and exacting nature of the sessions.

Ms. Swati is an excellent teacher and is well-versed in all aspects of testing for education abroad. She helped my daughter understand her weaknesses and practise upon them. She gave her a mock test every week under her supervision, so she knows exactly where my daughter stands.

Her coaching included not just the principles of grammar, vocabulary lists, useful tips, and strategies; but also, the right dose of motivation and discipline. What is remarkable is that while Ms. Swati makes sure her student does her work on time, she also encourages time-out and fun-filled activities for relaxation. Her sessions were comfortable, intensive and score-enhancing. I truly recommend Miss Swati to anyone wanting coaching for any of the admission tests.”

Ms. Sheetal Anand

Mother of Saaniya Anand

Ms. Swati is a dedicated and hard-working teacher. Her ways of teaching are highly commendable.

She gave me a list of words to learn and made quizzes on them to ensure that I was able to learn and remember them well. She also provided me with decks of cards on which I could write the words I came across while reading and solving papers. This has really helped to build up my vocabulary.

Critical Reading was a little difficult and annoying for me. But Ms. Swati made it easier by making me do several practice tests and keeping a score of each one to mark my improvement. Even writing followed the same procedure.

She would also give me a mock test every week and discuss it later in detail, making sure that all my doubts got cleared.
Taking these classes has really helped me prepare for the SAT. Thank you Ma’am, for your constant support!”

PSAT TESTIMONIALS

“The PSAT class was a good alternative class…At first I thought about preparing for PSAT along with my 10th (I.C.S.E.) class would be too much but my suspicion turned out to be wrong. I have learnt many things which have helped me in English and Maths, which I had never thought about. Hospitality is marvellous – it feels like you are at home, and I personally thank you for that, Miss Swati. I even loved the way you kept me comfortable and at the same time disciplined during classes. By my personal experience you are the best tuition teacher I have ever come across! “

“It helped a lot and made me more confident about taking the PSAT  test.”

“Dear Ms Swati, I have really enjoyed all your SSAT classes. Add to that the way that you have made me understand different topics and made sure that I will do well in my upcoming SSAT exam. You have always been funny, and I will never forget the names we came up for … Thanks for everything that you have taught me. You never gave up on me even after seeing my results.”

“Dear Ms. Swati, These last couple of months have made me extremely prepared for my SSAT final exam, and I am confident that there will be improvement from my last one. For me, this experience has been very essential, as I cannot imagine learning all of this on my own. Since the very first day you had me writing note cards and memorizing hundreds of words. I enjoyed these sessions.”

Literature SAT TESTIMONIALS

“I had the good fortune to have been referred to Ms. Swati for classes in the Literature SAT Subject Test. With just a week to go, she most graciously accommodated me into her busy schedule without hesitation and gave me all the time I needed to feel confident with my material. Her interactive teaching methods using examples, meticulous attention to detail, willingness to answer all my questions and regular practice tests were a great help. By the end of my classes with Ms. Swati I was well versed in all the necessary terms as well as the paper format and I felt well equipped to give the test. She was also extremely kind, considerate and took care of every request I had. I greatly enjoyed my classes with her. I got 750/800.”
