The National Evaluation Series (NES) is a group of 30+ exams designed by Pearson as an alternative test prospective teachers may take to prove their credentials. Tests are available to assess a candidate's proficiency in essential academic skills, professional knowledge, and specific courses they might want to teach. If you are having a hard time preparing for any of these exams, Varsity Tutors can set you up with a NES tutor who can help you work toward your academic goals.
Here are some of the topics that NES tutoring can help you prepare for:
- Essential Academic Skills (Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Technology Literacy)
- Professional Knowledge (Pedagogy, ESL, Teaching Elementary Reading)
- Specific courses (Early Childhood Education, Middle School Math, History, Chemistry)
Each exam has a unique format, but all are administered on a computer. If you've never taken an electronic test before, the unfamiliar interface may throw you off of your game. Thankfully, NES tutoring sessions can involve practice exams to help you learn what to expect before the big day. Not only can this help to alleviate any test anxiety you may be feeling, it also helps you identify where your strengths and weaknesses lie. That's important, as working with an NES tutor allows you to study at your own pace. For example, a student preparing to take the Writing NES exam may benefit from their tutor showing them how to create an outline. Prospective teachers may also be able to share what they learn with their students, making college NES tutoring very valuable for them.
