Brightstorm Guarantees 200 Point Increase on SAT Scores
Online Learning Network Proves There's a Better Way to Improve Your SAT Scores
SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 25, 2009) - Brightstorm, an online learning
network that helps teens do better in school, today announced a new 200
point increase guarantee for students who sign up for its video-based SAT Prep Package, taught
by expert teachers.
Since its launch in October 2008, Brightstorm's network has offered teens
access to a diverse selection of video-based courses, broken down into
short (10 to 20 minute), easily digestible lessons. On Brightstorm, teens
are able to study at their own pace and benefit from helpful materials
including interactive quizzes, flash cards and study guides.
A recent survey conducted by the company of teen users suggests that
Brightstorm's SAT prep courses are invaluable for preparing for the exam.
"I enjoyed the ability to stop or resume the video whenever I wanted to.
Also, it was easy and clear to understand what was being taught. In
addition, the skills I have recently learned are already applicable to my
current math class, not just for the SAT."
"It's a helpful online course to practice for the SAT and teaches you
things that you normally wouldn't know going into the test."
"Take it, it really helped me pass the math portion of the SATs!"
The company offers a video-based SAT Prep Package that covers the Critical
Reading, Math and Writing portions of the course. By purchasing the SAT
Prep Package, teens will get access to more than 120 supplementary
materials and links, more than 5,000 SAT vocabulary flashcards, a self-
diagnostic test, practice tests, study guides and 14+ hours of expert
instructional video covering all sections of the test.
The company's hand-selected teachers develop original curricula that
capture the most critical elements of test prep and respective subjects in
ways that teens can relate to. As a result of the growing acclaim for the
effectiveness of its courses, the company is confident that teens will
raise their SAT scores by 200 points after enrolling in its online SAT Prep
Package -- or it will refund their money.
"Brightstorm's experienced teachers provide students with the tools and
tips to bring their SAT studying and scores to another level," said Jeff
Marshall, co-founder & CEO, Brightstorm. "We're confident that students
will raise their scores by at least 200 points after taking our SAT prep
course and we continue to develop high-quality courses that speak to teens
in a way that books and other online offerings simply don't."
In addition to its SAT offerings, Brightstorm offers courses to prepare
students for AP tests as well instruction in key high school subjects
including Geometry, Algebra II and Writing. Most recently, the company announced a new AP Biology course and Literature
courses. To get on Brightstorm and sign up for a course, log on at
