How can a tutor help you master the PARCC?
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) exams test students multiple times over the course of each academic year, in grades three through eleven, in order to evaluate how their progress in math and English language arts measures up against the Common Core State Standards. The results of PARCC exams can be used by educators to diagnose areas in which remedial attention may benefit a particular student, to help him or her gain the skills that they will need in college classes or in a professional working environment. Thus, the results of the PARCC can have huge consequences for your child's educational experience. Test anxiety or the computer-based standardized format of many PARCC exams may present obstacles to your student and prevent him or her from demonstrating the knowledge and skills they have gained.
If you'd like to provide your child with a personal, experienced tutor to help improve their performance on the exam, individual PARCC tutoring may help you do so. Varsity Tutors understands that each person is a unique student, and is eager to help your child find someone who is best suited for their academic needs. Your tutor will custom-tailor your child's lessons in order to efficiently address their specific strengths and weaknesses. Moreover, your child will benefit from a completely customizable learning program that allows you to dictate the pace of every lesson. Unlike classroom-based learning, where the teacher has to manage a room full of students, your child's tutor is dedicated to fulfilling only the needs of your individual student. This means that you are able to slow down the pace covering problematic content, making sure that your child has an understanding of various concepts. On the other hand, you can completely skip material that your child understands, so that precious time isn't wasted covering content that he or she has already mastered.
The Varsity Tutors educational directors can analyze your child's current skills and knowledge, address any concerns your student has about class material, and incorporate the way in which your student learns best. By accessing an academic profile to help you select the best PARCC tutor for your child, Varsity Tutors is able to assist you in helping your student overcome any academic obstacles. Your child's tutor can then analyze your child's current level of content mastery to design a learning plan that emphasizes the Common Core areas they struggle with the most. Plus, since all tutoring takes place in a one-on-one setting, your student can receive expert feedback and answers to questions as soon as they arise. Your tutor can also help your student develop his or her test-taking skills by presenting questions in the same way as they will be asked on the exam, and by walking your student through useful approaches to various question types. Such preparation can help to diffuse any potential frustration with the PARCCs format that could prevent your student from accurately demonstrating all of his or her knowledge and abilities on test day. PARCC tutoring can help your child face PARCC assessments feeling confident and ready to showcase all that he or she has learned.
Your tutor understands that you and your child are busy, and is committed to working around your busy schedules. You can arrange lessons in person any time of the week, even at night and during weekends. Furthermore, your tutor is happy to conduct lessons in person in the comfort of your own home, or anywhere else in your area. Plus, the Varsity Tutors live learning platform allows you to meet with a private tutor face-to-face online. This gives you the flexibility to meet with your tutor at the time and location of your choice.
