And for kids with a history of struggling on standardized tests, that frustration can get compounded with the pressures of junior and senior year.
What happens if that weak track record continues in spite of classes and tutoring? Will it limit the opportunities your teenager may be able to pursue? Will it discourage them enough that they conclude they're simply a "bad test-taker," and that they shouldn't bother?
"I want to thank you for working with Matt. Not only did you help him increase his test scores, you also helped boost his confidence in himself. I found that there was improvement in his overall grades after working with you. He had the confidence to continue to challenge himself in his senior year with AP and college credit courses."
"When I first started working with MuchSmarter, I believed that I was hopeless when it came to standardized tests... I got a score that I never thought was possible for myself."
