There are some tips you can give students to help score higher on the essay portion -
410-439 word count is the goal
Emphasize vocabulary - especially SAT vocabulary and key words from the prompt
Vary syntax
Hit the space bar 4x to indent paragraphs - don’t skip lines between paragraphs
Use transition words
Vary your types of examples (movies, games, books, personal experience, etc)
