Choosing a college, applying, finding financial aid and scholarships are all stressful tasks. On top of that, you have to get good grades and an excellent score on the SAT to be admitted to the college you want. Mr. Test Prep can help remove some of the pressure so that you can lower your stress level and focus your energy in the most helpful areas.
Mr. Test Prep uses unique methods that will give you the confidence and preparation you need to score your best on the SAT. Most other big test prep companies use a one-size-fits-all lecture and homework model. We have discovered that not all students need help in the same areas and that homework often adds to stress and anxiety rather than helping to relieve it.
Instead of homework we offer practice tests that mimic the real thing. Mr. Test Prep’s methods teach you how to stay focused under pressure, work with time constraints, and ignore distractions. We then focus on your trouble spots as they arise. When the practice test is fresh in your mind, trouble spots can be more easily addressed and overcome.
Pairing one-on-one time with practicing actual exam conditions helps you prepare for the test both mentally and emotionally. An intensive test like the SAT requires mental stamina and our methods work to give students the practice they need to be ready for the real thing.
In addition, scheduling with Mr. Test Prep can be easier than classroom style test prep methods. You can pick and choose the two hour sessions that work for you, rather than being stuck to a specific class time. So, if you have a sports tournament, or a big project due at school, you can plan to attend a session at a different time without missing class material.
The Score You Want
Ultimately, our goal is to help you get the score you want and give you the confidence you need to achieve it. Mr. Test Prep works hard to relieve stress and anxiety rather than heap it on. If you are college bound, but are worried about the SAT, talk with Mr. Test Prep to see how we can help.
Mr. Test Prep has been a part of the San Mateo SAT Prep community for nearly 20 years. His experience working with students—from math wizzes to numberphobes, from novelists-in-training to kids who hate to read—has shown him that improving test results first requires improving a student’s confidence. To directly address this important facet of SAT prep, his tutoring program exposes students to the conditions of the test, while training them in subject-specific skills and teaching them testing strategies that can make the test much easier.
