How can an 11th Grade tutor help your child?
Junior year is arguably the most important year of high school. It is the last full academic year recorded on transcripts and sent along with college applications, and it is often when students begin taking multiple upper-level or Advanced Placement classes. It is also the year in which most students take college entrance examinations like the SAT or ACT. With such an extensive junior year to-do list, it is natural for students to experience greater amounts of academic difficulty than they have in previous years. If your high school junior wants to improve his or her academic performance, consider hiring a private tutor.
Junior year is much more than its course load, which typically contains math, science, English, a foreign language, and history. During this year, your child may also be preparing for the SAT or ACT, as well as AP exams and SAT Subject Tests. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with a tutor who can develop a customized tutoring plan to help your student address his or her areas of need. Your tutor will take your student's learning style and particular academic requirements into account when creating an individualized lesson plans to help your student succeed.
Additionally, a private tutor can be a major boon in terms of helping your child prepare for standardized tests. While a private tutor can certainly help them with course material that may be on the exam, they can also give them helpful study- and test-taking tips. They can help give your child some insight to the types of questions that are likely to be on the exams, and teach them how to manage their time effectively so that they can make sure that they do their absolute best.
From a studying standpoint, a private tutor can teach your child how to study effectively. Everyone has a different method of studying that works best for them. Figuring out what exactly that method is can take a long time, if it ever happens at all. A private tutor can ensure that your child finds out the most effective way to study based on their strengths, weaknesses, and learning style. This will not only help your child with their current courses and standardized tests, but also throughout their academic career as they enter college.
Beyond simply helping your student with course content or test prep, 11th-grade tutoring can help your student sort through junior year by keeping him or her organized and focused. Together, your student and tutor can create a standardized testing and college application plan that fits with his or her specific academic course load. Navigating how to coordinate the SAT, AP Exams, and SAT Subject Tests alongside final exams and extracurricular activities is often tough, but an experienced tutor can guide your student through every step of this process. From signing up for the right tests and scheduling study time to learning the right material and understanding standardized testing strategy, your private tutor will have you and your child covered.
Junior year is a busy time, and experienced tutors know the rigors that these students face. Tutors are flexible in finding times and places that work for your student.
