"My test anxiety is affecting everything I try to accomplish."

If you're so stressed out that even the idea of studying is overwhelming you, then it's time to try a different approach.

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

Plenty of hard-working students get lower grades and lower standardized test scores than they are capable of each year because of test anxiety. Especially in the context of the competition for college admissions, test anxiety can be a serious hurdle for kids who already fear that they will come up short. Dropping students with test anxiety into an SAT or ACT without the right preparation is a recipe for failure and frustration—and even more anxiety about the next test.

But that spiral isn't inevitable.

  • You are absolutely capable of performing as well on the SAT or ACT as you want.
  • Our coaching is designed specifically to help students who care deeply about their performance—kids who want to excel, but haven't quite figured out how. And once they learn a new approach to handling their test anxiety, our kids report better grades, better test scores, and more self-confidence and self-reliance.

"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..."
