Harvard students first started the SAT course in 2003, but since then it has expanded nationwide. The prep course teachers in Fairfax are Jennifer Lu, a rising junior at University of Virginia, Jeremy Weir, a rising sophomore at University of Pennsylvania, and Danayit Musse, a rising sophomore at Northwestern University.

“Traditional prep courses are taught by older teachers and they may have taken the test 10 years ago. This prep course is taught my students who just recently took the test; we took it and we conquered it,” said Weir.
