Secrets of an SAT Tutor: Make Your Child a Better Test-Taker

From SATs to Regents: Make Your Child the Best Test-Taker Without Hiring a TutorWhether your child is 5 or 15, there’s a good chance he has a loooong future of testing in front of him.

In an America with school assessments at every level and the infamous SATs standing between him and college, parents often feel the need to devote time, energy—even serious financial resources—to helping their kids ace exams.

(In fact, you could spend up to $195 for 50 minutes of tutoring! Find out what other tutors cost here.)

After all, being a good test-taker sets a child up to get good grades and good standardized test scores, all of which set him up to get into a top college—and land a great career. (You see where we're going with this.)

As a veteran SAT teacher, I can vouch for the fact that, especially in this down economy, students seem to be more competitive than ever. In an ideal world, we could give our kids an idealistic childhood about learning and living, without the pressure of needless competition.

But, like it or not, it’s a competitive world out there, and we want the best for our children.

With these tips, let's just say there are ways your kid can be a great test-taker ... no matter what his age. Or how much you spend.
