Finding the right course to help you study for the Praxis exam can be easy with a Los Angeles Praxis course provided by Varsity Tutors. The Praxis is a standardized test used to determine if an individual has the academic skills and subject-specific knowledge to enter the teaching profession. Often, educational institutions use Praxis test scores as one of the requirements for entry into their various teacher preparation programs. Praxis tests may also be required during or after teaching training courses. We can help aspiring teachers get a comprehensive review of the Praxis right in the comfort of their home. Whether you've studied education at Charter College of Education, California State University Los Angeles or if you're planning to enter a teaching program at Chapman University, the Los Angeles Praxis prep course can have a positive impact on your test prep.
What are some of the topics a Los Angeles Praxis class can cover?
The Praxis series of tests are administered through computer-based testing and has three different assessment categories which are Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core), Praxis Subject Assessments, and Praxis Content Knowledge for Teaching Assessments (CKT). Each state sets its own standards for acceptable Praxis scores and the specific Praxis assessment you need to take will depend on the subject and grade level you want to teach.
The Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators consists of three different tests that can be taken on separate days or as one combined test. The tests are reading, writing, and mathematics. The Praxis Subject Assessments measures subject-specific knowledge and teaching skills for aspiring K-12 educators. The length and number of questions for each test vary depending on the specific test. The Praxis Content Knowledge for Teaching Assessments assesses your subject-specific knowledge with a focus on specialized content knowledge used in elementary school teaching. The subjects covered include mathematics, science, social studies, and reading and language arts.
Your Los Angeles Praxis class instructor can give you a more detailed review of the types of questions and the test format for each type of assessment category. Beyond the exam content, your instructor can also impart test-taking strategies and effective study habits that can help you improve your skills and perform at your best in the test.
What are the advantages of enrolling in a Los Angeles Praxis course?
Studying for the Praxis series of tests with the guidance of experienced instructors can make a huge difference in the quality of your test prep. Whenever you encounter confusing topics along the way, you can have access to a highly qualified instructor who can give you immediate and relevant answers to your questions. This means you don't have to spend long hours trying to figure out things on your own which saves you a lot of time and effort. You can progress faster compared to studying on your own.
Unlike other traditional reviews, the Praxis course with Varsity Tutors can be done entirely online so you don't have to go to a physical location just to study. There's no need to commute so you can have more flexibility in choosing the time you want to study and where you want to set up your study area. You will be able to have live classes with your instructor and other aspiring teachers via video chat and you can easily follow lectures with our online whiteboard. Reviewing together with other students can help you learn new study techniques, avoid procrastination, and fill in learning gaps by discussing and comparing notes with your classmates.
Of course, if you ever find yourself stuck with a problem in the test, or can't quite wrap your head around a certain concept, or if you need to ask questions about working on student curriculum, analyzing student reading to identify patterns of thinking, or any other topic in the test, the course lets you schedule a one-on-one meeting with your instructor so you can get the support you need to address your difficulties. This personalized attention is another advantage that other traditional review courses may not readily offer to their students.

Simon: Los Angeles PRAXIS course instructor
...Assistant. When I'm not working or studying, I'm usually running, practicing guitar, or cooking with my fiance. I love to teach as much as I love to learn. I have experience tutoring in math but would be more than welcome to help out in other subjects as well. I like to keep the atmosphere fun and engaging. If you would like to know anything else about me, feel free to contact me!... My teaching philosophy is to provide guidance through the material while allowing the student to actively work through what they can comprehend and make the material relatable. By allowing the student to use the knowledge they have before receiving assistance, students engage in critical thinking and tend to have better retention of the material. Adapting the material to something that the student can more easily understand or find more interesting is often helpful.
