Improve your vocabulary for the SAT — painlessly and (almost!) effortlessly.

question for you...

Do you wish there were an easier way to improve your vocabulary?

Notecards, study guides, computer programs, expensive tutors…All great tools, but let’s be honest  there’s room for improvement here. None of these methods could really be described as “painless.” They’re all what I consider “brute force” memorization techniques, and as a result, most of us resist them in one way or another. Maybe it’s through procrastination; maybe it’s morphed into an active dislike of the subject. Either way, wouldn’t it be nice if there were an easier way?

Let me know if this sounds familiar...

  • You want to do well on the SAT.
  • You aren’t sure how best to prepare.
  • All of the conventional preparation techniques seem too boring, too expensive, or both.

if that sounds about right, then keep on reading.

You're Sick of the Same Old Options

Problem solved

Vocabbett utilizes unique, research-backed strategies

Vocabbett utilizes unique, research-backed strategies to improve your vocabulary. Mimicking how your brain learned its native tongue, I specialize in creating vocabulary-rich content where you 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. No one put flashcards in your crib! You acquired most of your vocabulary by simply encountering the words in the stories of life. (This is the same reason why immersion is the easiest way to learn a new language, by the way — it mimics how your brain learned its native tongue.) This is why I believe contextual, story-based learning is the best way to improve your English vocabulary, too. 

Vocabbett

Imagine how it would feel to...

…know you’re well-prepared for 3/4ths of the SAT (everything but math!)

…know you have a strong, rich vocabulary that will serve you into college

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

MEET YOUR TEACHER

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! 

have a question?

Frequently Asked Questions

I am so glad you asked! 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, as well! Vocabulary is a foundational building block for 3/4ths of the SAT. 

If it were me, I’d talk to my parents about getting a Vocabbett membership around 8th or 9th grade. It’s around this time that your vocabulary will start to naturally stagnate outside the academic environment, so by introducing Vocabbett at this time, you’re able to keep your brain learning the way it learned the majority of your native tongue — through repeated, incidental impressions!

I cannot thank you enough for partnering with me to donate a Vocabbett membership to a student who might not otherwise be able to afford it. 

If you have a specific recipient in mind, that’s great! I will simply ask you to fill in their contact information after checkout. 

Otherwise, your purchase of an annual membership will automatically create a “full ride” Vocabbett scholarship.
