The Dirty Little Secret Of The Tutoring Industry

Most test prep courses, whether they are individual or lecture style, require something that you don’t need to be successful on the SAT. This thing can add to your stress levels and rarely works to improve your exam scores. This thing is required in all of your classes and you just don’t need more of it. This thing is homework.

Healthline cites a study performed by Stanford. The study surveyed kids at high performing high schools in California. In that survey 70% of students said they were “often or always stressed over schoolwork.”

Required Homework

Many test prep courses require homework. It can include portions of practice tests or sample problems done out of a book. The reality for most students is that they are already bogged down with too much coursework for school. Where will they find time for test prep homework? Often, test prep homework is quickly scribbled during the moments before class starts or not done at all. This adds to feelings of incompetence and stress, breaking down the confidence that a test prep course should seek to build. Instead of helping improve scores and understanding, homework tends to induce guilt, shame, and stress.

Improved Scores Without Homework

At Mr. Test Prep, we understand that students don’t have time in their already busy lives for more homework. The key to boosting confidence is not piling on extra things. Instead, we give students time during their session to practice the exam as it will be taken on the test day. Practice sessions are timed and performed with other students in the room. During the session, sections are scored immediately and one on one time addresses problems, fears, or concerns. We offer improved scores without the added baggage of homework.

We believe that confidence is key to success and we want to do everything we can to build up confidence rather than hinder it. We want to relieve students of stress instead of add to it. Therefore, we never require homework for our guaranteed score.

Stress doesn’t improve scores, confidence does. Come to a free trail session and see how Mr. Test Prep can help you find the stress-free path to higher scores on your entrance exams.
