How can a tutor help you master the OLSAT?
The Otis-Lennon School Ability Test, or OLSAT, is a standardized exam used to analyze the yearly development and academic progression of students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. The OLSAT is also used by certain schools to identify potential candidates for gifted and talented, or GAT, programs, in conjunction with the results of other standardized tests like the NNAT. The OLSAT analyzes both verbal and nonverbal abilities throughout its five core areas. Students face twenty-one subtests on this exam, which can inspire a combination of test anxiety and exhaustion, and result in them failing to demonstrate all of their abilities. Helping your student become familiar with the structure of the OLSAT can help him or her approach the exam confidently, and personal OLSAT tutoring can help your student learn what is expected on each section of the test through supportive personal instruction.
Whether you are concerned with your child struggling to score highly on the OLSAT, or you want him or her to gain a greater understanding of the content in general, a private tutor is able to help them prepare for test day. This instructive approach is distinguished by the degree to which tutors customize each student's tutoring program to address his or her particular academic situation and needs. Varsity Tutors can help you select the perfect tutor to help your student become familiar with the OLSAT sections and problem types. Your student's tutor can then construct an OLSAT tutoring plan to specifically address the test content your student finds least familiar and most difficult.
Working with a tutor means that you and your child have control over the direction and pace of each lesson. Your student can work through the material at whatever pace best allows them to understand the material throughout the course of one-on-one OLSAT tutoring sessions, and their tutor can provide constant feedback and encouragement. OLSAT tutoring is also extremely convenient, and can be scheduled to take place where and when it works best in your busy schedule. If your child has the potential to excel in a gifted program, don't let test anxiety or confusion slow him or her down; build your child's confidence to help him or her demonstrate their complete academic potential on the exam.
Preparing in a classroom environment can feel impersonal and as if it's being taught in a one-size-fits-all format. Fortunately, working under the guidance and expertise of a qualified OLSAT tutor means that your child is able to benefit from a fully customizable lesson plan that has been developed to suit their specific needs. The tutor will actually establish a professional relationship with your child, learning their strengths and weaknesses, learning preferences, and interests. With this information, your tutor is able to design lessons and create supplemental content that is as engaging as it is informative.
You and your child's satisfaction and happiness are important to your tutor, and they are happy to go to great lengths to ensure that your tutoring sessions are both comfortable and convenient. You will be able to choose lessons any time of the week that works for you, including during the weekend, so that you and your child don't have to sacrifice important time from your busy schedules. Whether you choose to have your child learn through in-person tutoring sessions, or face-to-face online tutoring through the Varsity Tutors live learning platform, you will still be given a top-notch education from a skilled professional.
