It can be hard to ask for help, but finding a tutor for the SAT when you need one can make all the difference in your score. Here are 3 signs you need to seek out help.
1)Practice Test Scores Don’t Improve
If you have been taking practice tests, studying and practicing again and you don’t see any improvement, you may not be using the best study methods for you. When you don’t see a change in your score, your study time isn’t helping you. A tutor can help you develop the best study methods for your learning style and offer test taking tips that can improve your score.
Feelings of anxiety won’t go away on their own. To relieve anxiety you need to build up your confidence about your ability to do well on the test. Having a thorough understanding of what the test will be like can also help eliminate anxiety. An SAT tutor will offer tips for relieving anxiety on test day so that you can perform your best. The added benefit of feeling prepared and confident will also reduce stress and anxiety.
3) Trouble with Timed Test
It can be hard to force yourself to stay within the allotted time when you are practicing. However, the pressure of taking a timed test can be one of the most challenging aspects of the SAT.
