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.
