Adequate preparation, in many situations, can mean the difference between succeeding and failing. This is especially true in regards to students and their education: Those who are properly prepared perform better. One of the biggest and most important tests a high school student will take is the SAT or ACT. Doing well on these tests can increase the likelihood of acceptance into competitive colleges as well as earning scholarship money to help pay for the rising costs of tuition.
Many schools offer SAT/ACT prep classes as an elective, which provide students with a good review of content on these exams. Some parents also choose to hire a tutor to work with their student in a one-on-one setting, for a truly customized approach. There are many pros to one-on-one test prep with a qualified tutor, including the ability to pin point the exact areas and questions a student struggles with and help them improve, as well as learning all of the many tips and techniques for the exams.
The only downfall to one-on-one test prep can be the cost. Some test prep companies charge well over $100 per hour, which can be out of reach for many people. This is why College Tutors of Bethesda is currently advertising an essay contest, for a chance to win 10 hours of SAT or ACT test prep with one of their experienced and highly qualified tutors, including all workbooks and materials, for FREE! The contest is open to all current sophomores and juniors in Montgomery County, MD and Washington, DC., from now until August 15, 2013.
