The key to success on standardized tests and in academics is confidence. A well prepared, knowledgeable student can take on any test and meet their goals. As tutors, we need to identify our students’ weak spots and their insecurities and give them the tools they need to tackle each problem. These tools include our honed test prep strategies and reviews of subject matter. By maintaining positive attitudes, we can give our students the confidence they need to take full advantage of their preparation in school and on any test.
