MAC Action Indicators

User-friendly MAC ACTION INDICATORS, aka The Profile, contains a series of pro-active and powerful self-access personal assessments specifically designed for learners/readers between the ages of approximately 12 and 25. For more detail about this dynamic personal profile, check out the MAC ACTION INDICATORS.

MAC-A-THONS

MAC-a-thons are held every Wednesday immediately prior to a SAT test date from 3:00P.M. to 9:00 P.M. Dr. Mac provides free healthy snacks and dinner with plenty of time to relax in between the classes to refresh yourself. Six hours of intensive SAT instruction and much more, including proven visualization, relaxation and concentration techniques. Stay as long as you can. Be in the zone for real.

Senior Writing Workshops

The exciting and practical Writing Workshops are a vital step towards your college selection process. Be prepped by professional writers! For example, Dr. Mac not only has written many standardized grammar and writing tests that are used worldwide but she has authored a grammar book and 22 other books, as well.

MAC's Cycle A: Spring Writing Workshop for Juniors includes early college selection, packaging and positioning for college, the editing of all Cycle A written materials, the preparation of a resume, the Common Application, its personal statement, its short-answer essay and its supplement form and additional essay(s). Interview preparation is also available either to private clients or to those signed up for the Deluxe Writing Workshop package.

MAC's Cycle B and C Writing Workshops contain the same elements as the Spring Writing Workshop. These run from early September through late January.

VOCAB-U-LAB

An unpretentious, uncomplicated and effective technique to ascertain your individual lexicon*, that is, a simple, easy and effective way to learn vocabulary.

Attend as many VOCAB-U-LAB sessions as you can in addition to building your word power in the numerous verbal classes, as well as on your own. A poor vocabulary is an accurate predictor of a poor verbal score on the P/SAT. (If you didn't understand the above-starred sentence and/or your present vocabulary is inadequate, then you need to come to VOCAB-U-LAB as soon and as often as possible.) MAC has a plethora of fresh ways to teach you the words you need on standardized tests and in real life.

Specialty Nights in Verbal, Math and Essay Writing

IN VERBAL
Learn how to excel and "excellerate!" In addition to MAC's extensive verbal schedule of classes, Specialty Nights are also available for Sentence Completion and Critical Reading, as well as for Grammar and Essay Writing. These sessions are only available to those who already are very familiar with the MAC Method of answering these specific types of verbal questions.
