Varsity Tutors can help students at the University of Pittsburgh or Duquesne University, or any other institution, who are getting ready for the Praxis exam with Pittsburgh Praxis preparation options. Whether you're taking the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators test, the Praxis Subject Assessments, or Praxis Elementary Education, Content Knowledge for Teaching, you might feel more confident going into your exam if you've had extra help outside the classroom. We can help you to find the style of academic support that could work best with the way you learn. You can join a virtual Pittsburgh Praxis prep class, or study one-on-one with your own academic tutor.

What concepts will be covered during Pittsburgh Praxis prep?

The content of the exam prep that you're looking for depends on which test you're taking. In general, it's important to know that the Praxis exams are computerized, that they choose questions based on how you've answered previous questions, and that they don't take points away for incorrect answers. The Praxis Core exam consists of three different tests, which you can take together or separately: Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. Praxis Subject Assessments examine your knowledge of specific subjects and your teaching skills. In the Principles of Learning and Teaching tests, the focus is your knowledge of pedagogy and general knowledge in one of four age ranges: Early Childhood, K-6, 5-9 or 7-12 grade ranges. The length of time for these exams depends on which test you're going to take.

When you sign up for Pittsburgh Praxis preparation with Varsity Tutors, you'll get support from an academic coach who understands the content that may be on the exams, as well as the format of the test. They can offer insights into the format of the exam, tips to answer as many questions as possible, and how to handle test-related anxiety.

How do the two types of Pittsburgh Praxis prep work?

We have two methods of instruction that we can help you get started with: an online Pittsburgh Praxis prep class that brings you into the same virtual space with other students who are also preparing for this certification exam, or private instruction with an academic coach who knows the Praxis exams. If you're looking for a deep dive into the content and test preparation, you could consider creating a hybrid program by using both methods.

It doesn't matter if you connect with a Pittsburgh Praxis tutor to work one-on-one, or if you opt for an online course. Choosing to use either of these methods can be more convenient, more efficient, and more flexible than a traditional academic setting might be. You don't have to rush to a classroom and hope you get there on time. You don't have to worry about interrupting a study session that's already happening, and if you're working with an instructor privately, you can spend as much time as you need on the topics that are difficult for you. No matter how you structure your Pittsburgh Praxis prep, you'll have the guidance of someone who knows the material and can help you prepare.

If you focus better with one-on-one personal instruction, working with a Pittsburgh Praxis prep tutor is a great option. You can meet your instructor in one of two ways: connect online using the internet and the Live Learning Platform created by Varsity Tutors, or in a physical location of your choice. The flexibility in how you attend sessions makes it easier to add a Pittsburgh Praxis prep session to your schedule, no matter how busy you are. Working with a private tutor means that there's more personalization than you'd find in a traditional classroom setting. They learn about your personality, your learning styles, and what you're struggling with as part of your test prep. They can then use that information to create a plan of instruction that they believe will help you move toward your goals. You could focus on argumentative writing, algebra, and functions, or professional skills. They could also go beyond the content of the exam to offer test-taking tips, time and anxiety management tips if they believe you would benefit.

If you prefer working with other students who are also working toward the same goal, then you may prefer a Pittsburgh Praxis prep class. These virtual classes use the Live Learning Platform, its video chat and virtual whiteboard tools to communicate and work together during sessions. Not only do you get the discussions and potential for learning from other students, but you'll have the guidance of an instructor who wants you to succeed. You'll be able to communicate with your academic coach one-on-one, in addition to the in-class instruction. Classes are scheduled throughout the day and start regularly, so it's easy to fit one into a busy schedule.
