The Problem With One On One Tutoring

One on one tutoring has a time and place and can be enormously helpful for students that need help tackling a challenging topic, developing time management skills, or catching up when they have fallen behind. One on one tutoring is not the best option for every academic situation. When it comes to the SAT, there are other tutoring options to help you perform well on the exam.

Two Options

Most test prep companies offer one of two options, individual tutoring or a classroom setting. The classroom setting is usually generalized and may not touch on specific problem areas. It has potential to be either too challenging or not challenging enough. One on one tutoring can place unnecessary pressure on a student, and often doesn’t address some of the main problems students face with the SAT. The SAT is not taken alone in a sterile space. It is taken in a classroom setting with a lot of people around and the clock ticking.

The Alternative

Mr. Test Prep offers an alternative that provides focused time addressing individual problems, as well as group time taking timed practice tests. Anxiety can be one of the biggest hinderances to a top score when taking the SAT. The routine of practicing the SAT multiple times in a classroom setting, with other students, can help eliminate some of the fear and anxiety that comes with taking the exam. When you remove the mystery and practice working under the pressure of time, you can develop the confidence you need to perform well on the exam day.

Addressing Problems

As students practice their exam, each section is scored immediately. One on one sessions are used to address problem areas. Students have the freedom to ask questions that are fresh in their minds. They are given tools and tricks to tackle the problems that are giving them the most trouble. Then they are allowed to put their learning into practice as they re-enter the practice testing environment. This immediate response and practice allows students to internalize helpful exam techniques that will stick with them all the way through exam day.


When it comes to SAT test prep you don’t have to pick either a classroom lecture setting or one on one tutoring. Choose a program that implements the best of both worlds so that you can be confident and stress free on the day of the exam.
