Standardized tests can be a source of major frustration and self-doubt. No matter their GPA, most teenagers are still counting on strong standardized test scores to make them stronger candidates for the colleges of their choice. A bad (or even just mediocre) result on a standardized test can add an extra layer of stress to junior year, and at worst, make some kids feel like they may not be smart enough.
We have good news: your teenager is not actually "bad at standardized tests."
The SAT/ACT is just a different game than school work. Your teenager can learn to approach the SAT/ACT as a game of skill and do every bit as well as they do in class.
We have helped countless teenagers look at the standardized test game in a new light and helped them not only improve their SAT or ACT scores, but become more confident in their own abilities in the face of standardized tests, advanced classes, or any other challenge in front of them.
Whether they've "always been bad at standardized tests," or get too anxious to do their best work on important exams, or there's just one specific weakness in their skill set holding them back, we've been there to help them learn new skills and thrive.
