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.
You’re sick of flashcards.
You’re sick of study guides.
You’re sick of expensive programs & 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 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.
…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.
A uniquely engaging program where students improve their vocabulary — and enjoy the process!

Money, geese, and warnings? Yep, they're all connected, linguistically speaking!
Well, maybe it wouldn't get you killed TODAY, but at one point it could!

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!
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!
No worries! Simply cancel within 30 days and let me know what wasn’t working for you.
Learning doesn’t have to be hard, painful, or boring. It can be a weekly part of your life that you look forward to! It can be a podcast at breakfast or a conversation over dinner.
Your kids deserve to enjoy their education, and I’m here to help make that happen.
