College Test Preparation for Students

You and your high school student have big plans for the future. Both students and parents realize early on the importance of getting into a good college or university, earning scholarships and going on to having an amazing and rewarding career.

Grades and GPA aren't all you Need to be Successful

Grades are good, but they are just one piece of the collegiate puzzle. The other side of the coin as it were are college entrance exams. In the US, this means the ACT and SAT. The ACT and SAT are standardized tests are used by colleges and universities as a measuring stick to determine qualifications of acceptance in the United States.

Not only can these exams determine admission into almost every (worthwhile) university and college, they are also used as a wat for awarding scholarships to those that have applied themselves academically. Many students view these tests as one of the biggest challenges of their young lives, and put a lot of pressure on themselves to perform their best.

A professional tutor can give students an edge in their college preparation exams, helping them more effectively prepare for exam time allotment, application of the concepts that are worth the most points, prioritization of test sections, and more. This will not only academically prepare the student for the material that will be covered on the exam, but also give students the mental toughness and confidence they need to remain calm and collected when under the clock (each exam is timed).

Test Preparation Services – Overview

Spending the summer in test prep sessions with a tutor may sound like torture for many students. But that doesn't have to be the case. Our Phoenix based test prep tutors are engaging, personable and work to make the material as entertaining as possible. Your tutor will work with you side-by-side to ensure understanding of the material needed to maximize test scores.

Are you a good student, but one area holding you back?

Often, a student is already strong in certain topics covered on the exam but may need special attention to specific parts of the tests. A tutor can work with a student on the areas they need the most help. This will allow the student to better spend their time obtaining the skills that they need.

Tutoring can benefit even the brightest students as they prepare for college or the SAT/ACT tests. These tests include topics that may not be included in a high school curriculum and a tutor can provide college preparation to help your student for these important exams.

Individualized and Flexible Test Preparation

Offering flexible, individualized learning plans for any student, our tutors will help your student understand these critical concepts to succeed in the upcoming school year.

Since many topics that are covered on the SAT and ACT exams are not always included in the public school curriculum, or they are mentioned briefly and then passed, a tutor can broaden the student's understanding of these topics and help the student walk into the exam with more confidence and knowledge than relying on learning from school topics alone.
