The SAT, the ACT and the Regents are big tests that can be really stressful to high school students. Good scores can lead to scholarships and admission into great colleges. For many kids, these tests can overshadow their last years in high school and can affect their self-confidence. Getting good scores is important, but the learning experience doesn't have to be negative and painful. Giving your child the right support can lead to higher scores and a positive approach to studying that can be taken into college and beyond.
Hiring a private tutor to prepare for these tests is often the best approach for high school students. Group classes can offer some advantages over just learning from the text book, but it's not an individual approach customized to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your child.
