Founded in 1995 at the University of California, Berkeley, PTPS is a non-profit, student-run organization dedicated to providing free SAT prep to low income communities. Teachers with PTPS will be assigned to a site for the semester, and will lead their own 10-week SAT prep courses. During DeCal, we provide training and all the curriculum necessary for new teachers to be equipped to run their own classes.
The class is graded on a P/NP basis. The grade is primarily based on attendance - teachers are required to attend weekly DeCal, and also to teach their weekly classes. There is one brief final presentation at the end of the semester, which is a group project.
We require 80% attendance to pass the class. Absences with proper documentation (i.e. sickness, midterm) will be excused.
