Tutoring

  “Whenever I hear someone flip the page, I kinda panic.  I worry that I am behind, and that’s when I start rushing.”     I hear this sentiment frequently on the ACT, SAT, and, especially, the SSAT.  The angst is understandable.  It’s just not helpful.  Let’s look at why kids rush, why it’s not helpful, and what we can do to help.
Getting lost used to be more common. Just 10 or 15 years ago, before we could rely on our phones and satellites to keep track of us, we had to keep track of ourselves. And we did so imperfectly. At least, my friends and I did. Often, we’d plod along until we registered something recognizable – the Citgo sign by Fenway Park in Boston, that blue doored seafood restaurant, the bridge we crossed earlier in the day – and we would accommodate that new information. Or we would find our way to a map and orient ourselves.  
As a science-oriented student, headed for a profession in the field of health, you already understand that good nutrition affects health, longevity, and general well-being. But healthy eating also means a lot in the short term. Mood, stress level, and the ability to learn and retain information are all affected by the food we eat, so a nutritional diet is an important part of the test prep process.
A student of mine related that one of her friends began test prep in 9th grade.  Weekly.  For two hours.  With the most expensive tutor in the city.  (Full disclosure: I too am a high-priced test prep tutor). My student shook her head ruefully.  “I mean, I get that tutoring can help you do better.  But c’mon, three YEARS?!?”
  PrepMatters works with students all over the world—from New England to California, from Asia to Europe to Central America—helping them study smart and prepare for high school, college, and graduate school admissions. No matter where you are located, our tutors and counselors are available to work with you via Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, phone, and virtual classrooms.  
Students may fall short on the SAT® test for a variety of reasons–from lack of knowledge, skills, or motivation to mismanagement of time, emotion, or stress. They may try to overcome failures by practicing more, but not differently. And that often leads to further frustration. That’s where we come in.
