time for every minute spent on homework? Do you plead with your child to work just a little longer even
though you can see they are exhausted? You may need to find ways to motivate your child to finish
homework, practice their instruments, or join a club, but you do not have to motivate your student to do
homework to prepare for the SAT or ACT.
According to a survey cited by USA Today, 55% of students felt a moderate level of stress and 27% felt
high levels of stress during their last school year. At Mr. Test Prep we are aware that students’ plates are
already full and that we don’t need to add to their anxiety and stress by adding more homework to their
load. Confidence and comfort with the test are the tools we use to help students excel on the SAT or ACT.
This means as a parent you don’t have to motivate your student to eek out a few more minutes of
homework. You also don’t have to plan your weeknight or weekend around extra homework.
Convenient for Everyone
Imagine how thrilled your student will be when they find out all they need to do for their test prep course is
show up. You can choose from a variety of two hour times slots that fit your needs and the amount of
sessions that fit your test prep goals. You are not required to sign up for weeks and weeks of courses at
inconvenient times. This makes family planning so much simpler.
While you may be required to motivate your student to finish their school homework and plan your
vacations around sports tournaments, you don’t have to motivate and plan when it comes to test prep.
Using test prep methods that don’t add to stress levels and increase anxiety, will help your student feel
relaxed, comfortable and confident when it comes to the day of the test. Take a little load off of both your
shoulders and your student’s shoulders and try out Mr. Test Prep as your student prepares for the SAT or
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.
