Helping students improve their vocabulary — painlessly and (almost!) effortlessly.

question for you...

Do You Remember How Tedious It Was Preparing for the SAT?

Talk to any parent who took the SAT, and they’ll likely cringe when you ask them to describe the experience. “SAT word” is synonymous with “big, annoying word I had to learn for an arbitrary test, then never used again.” 

Things have gotten slightly better with computer programs, but kids today aren’t much more fond of those than you were of flashcards. No matter how you prepare, it seems that “SAT words” are doomed to forever be unpleasant.

Let me know if this sounds familiar...

  • You want to help your kids prepare for the SAT.
  • You don’t want them to have the same experience you did.
  • You aren’t satisfied with the expensive prep programs or tedious study guides out there. 

if that sounds about right, then keep on reading.

You're Sick of the Same Old Options

You’re sick of flashcards.

You’re sick of study guides.

You’re sick of expensive programs & tutors.

Problem solved

Vocabbett utilizes unique, research-backed strategies

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 language. Similar to how immersion is the best way to learn a new language, I believe contextual, story-based learning is the best way to improve your English vocabulary, too. 


Imagine how it would feel to...

…know your child is well-prepared for 3/4ths of the SAT (everything but math!).

…know your child has a strong, rich vocabulary that will serve him or her into college and beyond.

…save a fortune (in both money and time!) on tutors and courses.


Your kids deserve to enjoy their education. I'm going to help them get there.

What Students, Parents, & Experts Have to Say...

"Never before have I seen a method that targets vocabulary instruction in such a clever, vibrant, and engaging way while being research-based. ...Vocabbett is like nothing else out there. Highly recommend!"
Nelly Kaakaty, PhD
Learning Specialist
"I apologize for emailing you so late, but I spent ALL night reading your book from cover to cover! Not only did it help me study for my upcoming online SATs, but the storyline was fantastic! Ahead of Her Time sparked my love for reading that I’d lost. I’m an aspiring author myself and have been scared to attempt at publishing one of my books, but you’ve inspired me. Again, I apologize for emailing you so late; I presume you’re very busy. I just wanted to let you know I loved your book so much and it helped my studies immensely!"
Nyla Ward
"Vocabbett is such a departure from the drudgery of traditional preparatory programs. It's short and focused, but the benefits will last a lifetime, well beyond the SAT."

Hey there, I'm Erica Abbett.

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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Vocabbett is ideal for high school students, but there are many high-achieving 7th and 8th graders in the audience, too! 

No. Think of Vocabbett as the Khan Academy of vocabulary. It’s best used to supplement your existing resources, but it’s an incredibly powerful tool!
