Many parents ask what is the method in increasing test scores for SATs, ACTs, and PSATs. In actuality, there is no secret at all.
I view my role as to expand the student's repertoire of skills and strategy on the test. However, the internalization of all these to bear to fruition relies on the student going back to our assigned homework assignments and practicing the application. With multiple attempts on practice testing, I have seen students improve consistently and dramatically. In fact, the amount of homework assigned that is finished directly correlates to the score improvement. I actually assign pre-class homework even for the first time in many cases to jumpstart the expectation that homework is a must!
