Understandable! It’s a huge test, and no matter how you tackle it, preparation is almost universally considered a huge pain. Whether you opt for flashcards, giant study guides, tutors, or courses, none of them exactly scream “fun.”
…You’re sick of flashcards
…You’re sick of study guides
…You’re sick of expensive courses & tutors
Vocabbett utilizes unique, research-backed strategies to help students improve their vocabulary. Mimicking how the brain learned its native tongue, I specialize in creating vocabulary-rich content where students encounter new words in context. I believe we instinctively fight traditional learning methods – like flashcards and study guides – because they’re not how our brain has been trained to learn. Similar to how immersion is the best way to learn a new language, I believe contextual, story-based learning is the best way to learn new words in your first language, too.

A former English and history teacher, I founded Vocabbett to help students improve their vocabulary…and actually enjoy the process!
With a background in traveling and languages — I spent years studying abroad across Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East throughout high school and college — I am well-acquainted with what works and what doesn’t when it comes to language acquisition.
The way I see it, improving your English vocabulary is little different than learning a new language. The quickest way to accomplish it is through immersion, which is why my method utilizes a storytelling-based, “immersion” method — replacing foreign words with “big” English ones!

The SAT may not have a section explicitly labeled “vocabulary,” but you’ll be hard-pressed to succeed on 3/4ths of the test without a vast knowledge of the English language! The four sections of the SAT are: Reading, Writing and Language, Math, and the (optional) Essay. It will be difficult to traverse the Reading section if you don’t know what the words mean, and the “Writing and Language” section actually does have an explicit vocabulary component. Moreover, you can be quite certain that the people scoring your essay are paying close attention to your word choice! Vocabulary is a foundational building block for 3/4ths of the SAT.
If it were me, I’d join anytime after 8th grade. It’s around this time that your vocabulary starts to naturally stagnate outside the academic environment, so by introducing Vocabbett at this time, you keep your brain learning the way it learned the majority of your native tongue — through repeated, incidental impressions!
Yes! If you earn the most points on the challenges, you win first place and a $50 gift card to the store of your choice.* There are also $20 gift cards for 2nd and 3d place.
*Your parents and I must approve of your store choice!
No. This is a challenge, so what you get out of it is up to you! There are other extraneous factors, too. For instance, you might know a couple of the words coming in.
However, what I can guarantee is that if you participate in this challenge, you will have an enormous head start on adding a mountain of high-frequency SAT words to your mental arsenal!
Studying for the SAT doesn’t have to be hard, painful, or boring. It can be a podcast at breakfast or a book at the beach.
You deserve to enjoy your education, and I’m here to help you make that happen.
