No virus can stop us from pursuing your future :)
Hi again, MVC Parents!
I hope you're having a fantastic start to your spring season as a family and that Jesus is blessing you and your student immensely with more of his presence and that he's giving you peace and sanity as you navigate everything high school life entails, including the whole college entrance puzzle.
And I hope that you all are safe, healthy, and finding the strength to live free from fear...or to at least look fear in the face and live in courage DESPITE the fear.
As you know...with the latest measures being taken to keep your students safe and healthy, school will be happening from home. So, in that same spirit, our SAT class coming up will be done completely online, through LIVE Zoom calls and real-time instruction, interactive workshopping, and Battle Plan crafting.
And, since MVC families and students are often very busy, traveling from all different counties, handling a rigorous academic load, hustling to sports, and even working jobs on top of all that...
I'd like to offer you a first-of-its-kind SAT prep opportunity that will give your student maximum SAT training and practice with minimal demand on your family's full schedule.
What I have found is that SAT prep can often feel like
We know we should do it. But when do we find the time?
So what happens is families work hard to do all of the NORMAL life stuff, then suddenly realize, "Oh shoot! We need to get ready for the SAT! We need to register! You, son or daughter, need to practice! Have you been practicing?!"
And the whole thing can become frantic, stressful, confusing, and a massive bummer.
Then, students feel nervous and anxious because they haven't faced the giant head-on until the last minute. So they feel like a powerless victim of the test instead of like the powerful son or daughter of God that they are. Instead of like the Conqueror that they are. Instead of like the world-changer that they are.
The Truth about High Scores
But since the most sure-fire way of scoring high on the SAT is to actually put in quality prep (both getting good instruction and also practicing with that instruction), students' scores end up suffering.
Because the truth is...1600 scorers aren't just born that way. In interview after interview with perfect scorers, it's been shown across the board that they all had this in common:
They studied ravenously.
And this isn't just normal school material studying. They didn't just brush up on their math or their english or whatever. They actually studied the actual SAT. They studied how to take the test.
And then they practiced the RIGHT way.
This is why it's so important to somehow find a way to get the SAT prep into your schedule. High GPAs aren't necessarily signals of high test scores.
Neither are low GPAs indicative of a pending low test score.
If the student is willing to put in the right work--hard work--THEN they are more likely to score higher.
How This Class Solves the Problem
In the past, students of my weekly night classes had to go home after a full school day with my 3 or 4-hour SAT class on top of that, only to start their 2 to 3 hours of homework...squeeze in dinner...and hopefully sleep.
Feeling like there MUST be a way for you to get premium SAT coaching without having to skip meals for a month just to do so, I'm excited to offer this first ever SAT BATTLE PLAN WEEKEND(S), where we will charge full steam ahead for just one Friday and one Saturday...and then another Friday...that's it.
The class was GOING to be just one weekend, with three hours Friday, and six hours Saturday, when we were going to be on campus. But with the closing of the campus, I'm thinking that most students won't be able to hang in there for a six hour video conference.
So, we will do the following:
My hope, even though I know there's no perfect day that would work for EVERYONE, is that this format, just a single weekend will allow you to have your cake and eat it too. Get good SAT prep, and not lose any more sleep in the process.
By signing up for this weekend, you will:
Get Your Student the Best SAT Training Available (4.5 hours)
Give your student dedicated guided practice, troubleshooting, and workshopping time (3 hours)
Help your student create their own unique personalized SAT Battle Plan (1.5 hours)
Secure Access to Premium SAT training on an ongoing basis (days, weeks, months)
Matt has such a great sense of purpose and care for his subject and his students. He has the unique ability to instantly connect with his students and also able to meet them where they are. We are so impressed not only with his command of the material but presenting it in a way that not only makes it relevant, but gives all the kids’ purpose and meaning. He comes to every organization with our highest recommendation!
Principal, Trinity Christian High School
When Matt Hallock came to our school for a Spiritual Emphasis Week, he engaged us and the process with his whole heart; and it’s not like he just showed up for the gig. He sat down with us weeks in advance to hear our hearts — to seek the Lord and plan together. He prayerfully customized the week with us and even helped us reflect after the week. Here are some things we learned about Matt in the process. He takes the right risks. He calls students to Christ winsomely, gently, humbly, powerfully, and poetically. He avoids cliches. Like Christ, he is a wonderful storyteller, captivating even the skeptical student in the back row who can’t help but be won over by the sincerity with which Matt approaches everything — and everyone. He empties himself to be filled with Christ and and to make Christ known. Ultimately, Matt excels because he wants to be filled with the Spirit and cares more about making Christ known and adored than himself.
Director of Spiritual Life, MVC
Matt was extremely patient in working with our school. There were portions when he had to wait for documents and paperwork to be processed, which he handled very well and gave us plenty of time to ensure they were completed. Academically, Matt was able to connect with the students. As a school counselor, I appreciate when presenters/teachers are able to provide background info about themselves to better help the students become comfortable with who they are learning from; Matt did well with this! He introduced himself and the overall mindset that students should have when preparing for the SAT before he began discussing the actual course content. I think this is an effective method that allows students to see that the SAT is not a typical exam and, in fact, is multifaceted, requiring more preparation than most exams.

Your student gets to complete the entire class. Then, if they walk away from it saying, nope! Class was no good. Wasn't worth it. I didn't like Mr. Hallock. I fell asleep...whatever...then contact me by midnight that night...Saturday the 28th...and I'll give you a full refund. I'll even let you keep all the stuff :)
