Free SAT classes for US college hopefuls

Dr Neva Alexander, founder of the New York-based National Educational Venture Alliance, will be hosting a free SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) information session on Wednesday, July 9 at 10 a.m.

High-school students, parents and teachers interested in learning more about the SAT and how to apply for scholarships to attend colleges and universities in the United States are welcome to attend.

Following Wednesday's session, Dr Alexander will also be hosting free SAT mock exams on Saturday, July 12, to better assess students' strengths and weaknesses in the three areas that comprise the SAT - mathematics, reasoning and writing. All sessions will take place at her centrally located office at 11 Ardenne Road, Kingston.

Dr Alexander, an adjunct assistant professor at the City of New York University, received her doctorate in education leadership at Argosy University, a master of arts in social science from Long Island University and a bachelor of arts from John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where she majored in legal studies.

Despite her ability to remain in the United States, her passion to educate our youth compelled her to move back to Jamaica to do just that. "My parents were born in Jamaica and I am also a Jamaican citizen, I've always wanted to be able to make a meaningful contribution to empower the youth of this country," she revealed.

Dr Alexander will be readily available to answer any questions related to the SAT, studying in the United States, scholarship information or any other queries regarding her extensive international exposure during the July 9 information session.
