Yes. We discourage parents from using the phrase “bad test taker,” which implies a deficiency on behalf of your student. There is nothing wrong with your student. They are not a bad test taker, they are simply taking a test unlike any they have been given before. But in short, yes, we can help them. The ACT/SAT is not the same as a test given in school that tests students on a particular subject or set of facts. The ACT/SAT is a critical thinking test that tests a student’s logic and reasoning skills. One reason students do not perform well is because they don’t know what to expect. We teach students the structure, scoring and strategies specific to each section. We help students create an individualized plan of action to achieve the score they want to get. We do not teach math, English grammar, or vocabulary, but instead teaching critical thinking strategies that they can apply on those sections.
