If you are an aspiring educator looking for help preparing for the Cleveland Praxis exam, Varsity Tutors is here to help. Praxis prep courses are led by knowledgeable instructors who are familiar with the test's content and format. Whether you've been studying teaching at the Cleveland State University or at Kent State, you've put in a lot of hard work. When you are taking this exam, you'll draw on all of the information and techniques you've learned during your studies. Enrolling in this convenient, online course can provide a comprehensive review of the concepts on the Praxis and give you the boost you need to feel ready for the exam.
What areas might the Cleveland Praxis course cover?
The Praxis is a wide-ranging examination that tests you on your academic skills, as well as your subject-specific knowledge. As you may know, the "Core" assessment tests your skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. The subject assessments measure both your preparedness to teach a particular subject as well as the principles of learning and teaching (PLT) necessary to succeed in the classroom. The PLT assesses your knowledge at one of the four grade level ranges: Early Childhood, K-6, 5-9, and 7-12.
Besides covering specific exam content, your prep class leader can also share with you effective test-taking techniques. The Praxis is a computer-based test, and there are no penalties for incorrect answers either on the "Core" section or the subject assessments. The Praxis is also a rather long test. Time can get away from test takers who are not used to keeping a steady pace. Your prep group leader can help you determine strategies for tackling the topics on the test, as well as tips for increasing your speed if you need help picking up the pace.
What are some of the benefits of participating in a Cleveland Praxis class?
Studying for your Praxis within the context of a guided class has several advantages over reviewing the materials on your own. With this prep opportunity, you can get a comprehensive review of the content of the exam led by an instructor who is an expert on the Praxis. You can participate in positive group discussions on exam content, effective test-taking methods, and clear up any remaining questions you may have - before you have to face the test itself. Your instructor might also break classes into smaller groups to explore topics you may want additional help with, so you and your group can practice together and learn from one another.
Working as part of a collaborative group is a smart way to review and remember the material. A Cleveland Praxis class presents you with opportunities to learn along with other future educators. Others can share experiences or insights that can make content more memorable for you. Studying with your peers can even help you discover new and better ways to learn. While participating in group activities, you'll experience perspectives you may not have encountered in the classroom. You can get immediate feedback from your group leader or your classmates. In addition, your input may help a fellow student gain insights into a topic they might be struggling with.
The convenience of online Praxis classes takes the worry out of finding time in your busy schedule to take a class. Online delivery means that you don't have to waste time commuting to a physical location - or deal with the hassles of parking. Instead, you can log into a virtual classroom and take part in your class from any comfortable, distraction-free environment that you choose. Through video chat - and an online whiteboard - you will be able to see, hear, and interact with your classmates and instructor. If you find yourself in need of further assistance, you can ask to meet one-on-one with your course leader outside of class to get extra help.

I believe with sincere EFFORT from myself and my future students, we will make gains that will surprise us both. I enjoy working with children and watching them make real world connections to Reading, Math, Writing, Science, and Social Studies. When a child makes connections, they have better retention of their subjects. Learning takes hard work and should be fun, and I'll do my best to make sure that no time will be wasted.
