In our last couple of blogs we’ve highlighted some of the important elements to preparing your child for college. College will ultimately become one of the most influential factors in your child’s life. It will impact their lives both professionally and personally, so it’s worthy of much planning and preparation.
As our previous blogs have discussed, it’s important to help your child become a well-rounded individual as part of their college preparation. This may involve participating in athletics and getting involved with volunteer opportunities through your church or in the community. But there is one very important accomplishment that is required as well: Taking the SAT test.
The role of the SAT/ACT scores
All colleges factor SAT scores into their admission process, but the scores become more important at schools where applications exceed the number of open spots available for incoming students. During this selection process, SAT scores will help admissions officers grasp the academic success and likely trajectory of your child’s education. This selection process will also factor in your child’s overall life skills and accomplishments. This is why it’s important to help your child develop their personal interests in sports or community involvement as well. But without excellent SAT scores, it’s very difficult for a student to gain admission to the more selective colleges and universities.
We’ve developed a 30 hour course to walk your child through every subject and improve their proficiency across all covered disciplines. In addition to our standard coursework, your child will be given sample tests to better gauge their exact skills. If needed, our tutors are able to expand the coursework to highlight any areas where your child may benefit from additional attention.
Targeted test preparation
One of the most valuable elements to our tutoring is the preparation we’ll give your child for the actual test day. For many students this is a day filled with anxiety, but our students have the benefit of sample testing and extensive strategies to help them face that day with much greater confidence. Once freed from much of the stress, they are better able to complete the test with an accurate display of their knowledge.
