Standardized tests are a fact of life for students.  Whether applying to a private school, a college or university, students should prepare the best they can to obtain the highest scores possible. We offer tutoring for most of the standardized tests students may face:  GED, ISEE, SSAT, PSAT, ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, TEAS or other specific exams. 

Chesterfield Learning Center has experienced tutors who will help students not only obtain the knowledge they need for test success, but also help them get used to the test format and time constraints so they can gain confidence and feel more at ease the day of the test. 

 

The following explain the importance of tutoring for college-bound students:

“Standardized tests play a prominent role in the college admission process.”  Out of the 246 institutions responding to a 2009 survey report by the National Association for College Admission Counseling, 89 percent indicated that they used scores from either the SAT or the ACT.

 

“Your ACT scores are a measure of your current level of educational development in English, reading ” mathematics,and science—and writing, if you took the ACT Plus Writing. Knowledge and skills in these areas are generally essential for admission to college and are considered important for success in college studies”(ACT Inc, Using Your ACT Results 2008/2009, p. 3).

 

“The SAT tests students’ basic knowledge of subjects they have learned in the classroom—such as reading,writing, and math—in addition to how students think, solve problems and communicate. The SAT tells students how well they use the skills and knowledge they have attained in and outside of the classroom” (The College Board, The SAT Program Handbook, 2008, p. 1)

 

The vigorous use of…tutors “significantly boosts scores on standardized exams such as the SAT or ACT. This preparation, in turn, promotes access to more selective institutions” (ERIC document EJ919013: Social Forces, v89 n2 p463-474 Dec 2010).
