Tutoring Online In the Covid-19 Crisis

Nationwide, schools and libraries are closed. Students are trying to work from home so that they do not fall behind. Here at Link Private Tutoring, we are providing live one one one online tutoring sessions. With the ACT and SAT moved back to June, and for some September, parents and students alike are wondering what is the best time to prepare for these critical tests. We recommend beginning a six to eight-week study plan now so that each student has time to learn strategies and practice with timing while also increasing their content area knowledge. As an added benefit, we can record your sessions and send you the private link to view them at any time. The recordings can help keep the Link Method strategies fresh until the day of the test– whenever that is. If you would like to schedule a six or eight-week package, mention this post for a package discount. Call or text 985-260-2620. We are located in Louisiana and can tutor online no matter where you are.

ACT and SAT scores not only predictor of college success

For admissions offices that are strapped for time, test scores can provide a place to start to identify whether or not a student will be successful, but da Silva also said there has to be a commitment to reviewing each application and reading the students’ stories as well. “At the end of the day, that’s what it’s about: Whether or not the student will be successful within my curriculum, and keeping in mind that you don’t want to shut the door,” she said.

ACT Registration Questions- Which are Optional?

As a teacher and a tutor, I am often the one student’s and parents come to for ACT and SAT registration advice, and I’m happy to help. All The questions about what sports are interested in and what classes you’ve taken can take up to 45 minutes to fill out. Some are optional, and some are required. You have to tell them what classes you’ve taken, but it doesn’t really matter if you’re honest or not. You have to tell them your grade point average, but again it does not affect anything in your record or how the college sees you if you’re honest or not. The college looks only at your transcript for your grades. You do not have to tell them what your intended major is, what extracurricular activities you have engaged in, or what your interests are. Filling in this info is for the benefit and profit of the test prep company, yet it gets your student some fun college-related mail. That’s about it.

How to Get Higher Reading Scores

Does your high-schooler need better reading and English scores on standardized test such as the ACT, SAT and PSAT? Find a high interest novel or even a magazine and give it to your child to read during winter break. Read the same book yourself and every day ask your child questions along the lines of who what when where why and how about the plot.
