Your child has a challenging schedule. He or she juggles extracurricular clubs, sports, music, jobs, friends, and homework. As a parent, it can be challenging to keep up with. Fortunately, teens have a lot of energy and are able to make the most of their days. While your teen may love running from one activity to the next, they can also get worn down. They may need some help prioritizing their time, and squeezing in less enticing activities such as exam prep.
A Little Time Every Day
Your child may find it difficult to find time for SAT or ACT prep, but they will need to get ready in order to do well. Help them squeak out a little bit of time each day to work out a practice problem, or do some reading to improve comprehension.
Timed Practice Exam
After some daily prep, you need to go over your calendar, and block out a time to work on a timed practice exam. It is so important to practice the real thing before the day of the exam. Time can slip by quickly, so if you don’t plan for it, it may not get done.
Exam Prep Programs
If your child has trouble with self-directed exam prep, you may want to consider an exam prep program. Most conventional programs demand a certain number of classes and a required amount of homework. This can work to spike your child’s stress level rather than help it. At Mr. Test Prep, your child can choose the sessions that work best for their schedule. The program is not restricted to a required amount of sessions, so your child can stop any time they feel ready. No required homework allows plenty of time for all of the other important things in life, preventing stress and anxiety. Mr. Test Prep offers a method for preparing for these important exams that respects demands on student’s time. Our goal is to relieve stress, not add to it.
Plan for Success
The sooner you encourage your child to begin preparing for the exam, the easier it will be to carve out time for it. You don’t want your child to have to cram or feel underprepared. Help them chart out a plan for test prep that will lead to success and minimize stress and anxiety.
