Lesson Details

Test Prep

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
When I hear students say “I’m not a good test-taker”, I cringe. Parents, and sometimes teachers, in an effort to bolster the child are usually the first person to program them by saying: “don’t feel bad, you are just not good at tests.” Many often add – a well meaning but completely unrealistic comment – “don’t worry, it doesn’t matter that much.” The latter part unfortunately is a delusional statement because tests become a bigger part of one’s academic career as they move into the latter stages of high school and the most important part – by a significant degree – in college and beyond. Tests do matter a lot. Wishing that wasn’t the case won’t help your child.

As for being a “bad test taker”, I immediately tell the student. You are untrained test-taker”. After I train you, you will be a better test taker. Having trained at this point a myriad of college students for tests in both UnderGraduate and Graduate Degrees, I can say with certainty that this is true for most every student who goes through my test program.

The strange thing is that parents easily seem to understand that other disciplines require training to become “good”. Most every one of those young soccer players, ballerinas, violinists was once “bad”. Those that are now “good” received proper training, were taught how to practice correctly, and then practiced and played a great deal. Elementary School and Junior High School are a student’s time to learn and practice these test taking skills before High School and College when it does matter a great deal.

Feel free to ask any questions you might have about my services. I look forward to working with you to help you succeed. Sign up for lessons today! You won’t regret it.

Recently I ran for City office. During my campaign one of the biggest challenges for me was writing my campaign mission statement. I could not have accomplished this task without the help of Kalisha. She helped me with the following: Grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and most important. She helped me to create a powerful essay. Kalisha was so encouraging and helpful. I highly recommend her.
