Getting tutored for college admittance exams

If you are looking for a SAT, ACT or GCSE tutor, then there are some things that you should keep in mind.  First of all, you should have as your main goal whenever you are working with a tutor to raise your SAT or ACT test scores.  This is something that almost any student can benefit from, especially whenever the tutoring is both targeted and personalized.  In such cases, it really does not matter what the student’s current level of understanding and performance actually is.  If this is of interest to you, then you may wish to hire a tutor.  Whenever you are trying to do this, there are some things that you should look for in a college tutor or university tutoring program.  These things include:
1.    You should try to get a private tutor but if you have to go with a group tutoring system, then you need to make sure that the session will be interactive and that most of the people who are participating in the session are at the same level as you.  After all, the last thing that you need is to be kept back in your SAT or ACT tutoring because the people who are in the session with you do not know as much as you do.  Of course, you also do not want to get lost in a class where all of the people are far ahead of you.
2.    You will want to make sure that you are getting the personal instruction that you need.  This means being made to feel like you are the only student in the world and that the instruction is specifically tailored to your needs and the admissions requirements of the colleges or universities that you are trying to gin admittance to.  Usually this begins with the instructor fully assessing your needs and skills.
3.    The tutor should push you by teaching you things that are just ahead of what you already know but they should not go too fast.  Nevertheless, you should always feel the exhilaration of learning something new each time you meet with your tutor.
4.    The materials that are used should be varied.  They should include diagrams, verbal instruction, reading and writing.  This is important because we learn better and retain what we have learned to a greater degree whenever we learn in several different mediums.
5.    After each time you meet with your tutor they should give you homework that is useful and makes you think.  The goal of this homework is to help you learn the material better.  At your next tutoring session, your tutor should help you to go over your homework so that you learn from your mistakes and know what weaknesses you need to overcome.
6.    Make sure that you check for your tutor’s references.  They should also be able to tell you how well their past students have done on the SAT or ACT after having used their services.

After your tutoring session you will be able to find the college that fully meets your potential so that your learning experience will be truly worthwhile.
