SECRET 1: SAT/ACT Tutoring Program
Parents are often very concerned when they find their child is struggling to study on their own SAT/ACT Tests. It is typical for teens to find it challenging to stay focused and motivated with high-content material to tackle independently. This experience increases if there are learning gaps for the teen as well. Kids on the Yard has tutoring programs designed to support teens with study material and test prep. Having an instructor by your child’s side when studying for SAT/ACT will help them understand challenging areas of study. Our tutors focus on precisely what your child requires to excel and work at the student’s pace.
SECRET 2: Start Early
Who wouldn’t want all-time in the world to prepare for a test and not find your teen rushing at the last minute to study for something as significant as SAT/ACT Test? High school years are busy with projects, homework, weekly tests, and many school activities, and finding ways to prioritize it all, including SAT/ACT Study, can be overwhelming. Carving out specific time out will help your child create a space in their busy High School lives for their SAT/ACT preparation. Help your teen select a realistic exam date about two to three months ahead, allowing enough time for preparation.
Studies show that starting early will give your child enough time to recognize areas of study that require extra support and reinforce established skills. This gauge will prevent cramming and create a more meaningful study experience with tutors like ours at, Kids on the Yard. With time, our tutoring program will tackle study challenges, which will ease the anxiety of such preparations. Our tutoring program will also build the necessary confidence to handle the test-taking process, thus leaning towards more outstanding results.
SECRET 3: Take the Practice Test
Practice makes perfect! According to Aristotle, excellence or success is not an art but a practiced routine. One of the best ways to excel in SAT/ACT is by taking a full-length practice test. A practice test follows similar timing parameters experienced in actual exams, giving students a picture of what to expect in the actual test. Taking a practice test will also familiarize your child with not just the structure of the test but also its timing. Contact us for more information on accessing the SAT/ACT practice test.
SECRET 4: Paying Attention in Class
Since 2016, SAT and CTA have been modified to link directly with what is taught in class. Whether your child is in a public school or is homeschooling, please encourage them to pay attention to their teachers and everything taught in class. If your child is experiencing any learning gaps, do not hesitate to contact us since we have excellent programs to help your child bridge those gaps.
SECRET 5: Avoid Anxiety
It can be quite a big deal preparing for a big test such as SAT or ACT; especially it is the primary determinant of getting into your family’s preferred college. Your teen can nevertheless avoid anxiety by preparing in advance and having enough rest before the exam. Ensure that they know where the test will take place and understand all the exam center rules. Arrange all allowed supplies needed for the exam a day ahead of the exam and ensure they have had a well-rested night. Also, ensure that your child does not read overnight before the test to avoid confusion, generating stress and anxiety.
