Is your teenager's performance hurt by test anxiety?

If a student is so stressed out that even the idea of studying is overwhelming them, it's probably time to try something different.  

Play MuchSmarter ACT

Anxiety often stops teenagers from doing their best on big tests, no matter how hard they study.

  • Is worry and stress part of your teenager's test-taking experience?
  • Do they seem to be learning a subject pretty comfortably, only to fall apart on tests?
  • Is it worse on big tests, like the SAT/ACT or final exams, than on routine tests?

Don't worry

Test anxiety is not who they are. It simply reflects how they have learned to take tests up to this point in their life—and they can learn how to approach big tests in a new way. We teach students to approach big tests like the SAT/ACT as games of skill that they can master, and even enjoy!

"I had been struggling with math ever since 6th grade. When I began to work with Much Smarter, math became much clearer to me. I not only improved my grade, but I learned new ways to approach a problem and gained the confidence I needed to do well. I'm so grateful to Much Smarter for not only improving my grades, but helping me understand and approach problems and difficulties with an open mind, and confidence that I can do anything."

"I've always been extremely hard on myself. No matter how well I did on a test or a project, I would never think it was good enough. In school I felt like if I did not grasp something right away, I would never be able to. I particularly struggled with this mentality during my preparation for standardized tests..."
