Varsity Tutors can find you an experienced Washington DC Praxis tutor who can help you have a more organized test prep. The Praxis test assesses the academic skills and subject-specific content knowledge needed if you want to enter the education profession. Studying for a standardized test like the Praxis can be daunting. There are many topics to review, and if you encounter challenging concepts, who can you ask to clarify points you're struggling to understand? Fortunately, Washington DC Praxis tutoring gives you access to knowledgeable private teachers who can give you relevant and immediate answers that can make your test prep more efficient and effective. Whether you studied education at the University of the District of Columbia or at the Howard University, private instruction can have a positive impact on your test prep.

What are some of the advantages of working with a Washington DC Praxis tutor?

When you work with your Washington DC Praxis tutoring instructor, you can use your valuable study time more efficiently. Unlike in traditional classroom reviews where the teacher has to follow a specific syllabus, your private lessons can focus on the subjects you need to improve on. If you need more help with topics covered on the Mathematics test of the Praxis such as number and quantity or algebra and functions, you can work on more exercises tackling these topics. You don't need to waste time on topics you already have a good knowledge of. You'll be able to study at your own pace and ask as many questions as you need until you are confident with the topic you're trying to learn.

Your one-on-one private lessons are also a great option if you want to study in a distraction-free location. You can avoid distractions that can be present in a classroom and receive your teacher's full attention throughout your lessons. If you have any questions about the content and format of the Praxis, you can consult with your teacher immediately and get feedback instantly. This instant feedback and customized lessons can be hard to match in a traditional review course.

What topics can Washington DC Praxis tutors review with me?

The Praxis series of tests is a computer-based exam that has three different assessment categories: Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core), Praxis Subject Assessments, and Praxis Content Knowledge for Teaching Assessments (CKT). The specific Praxis assessment you need to take will depend on what grade level and subject you want to teach. Each state will also have its own standards when it comes to acceptable Praxis scores. If you have more questions about the coverage and requirements of a state for Praxis, your private teacher can help provide explanations and details during your lessons.

In the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core) test, you'll face three sections namely the reading, writing and mathematics exams. You can take each test on a separate day or combine all of them in one testing session. The Praxis Subject Assessments include over 90 different tests such as Middle School English Language Arts, World and U.S. History: Content Knowledge, and Art: Content and Analysis. As for the Praxis Content Knowledge for Teaching Assessments (CKT), you'll be tested on your subject-specific content knowledge focused on content used in elementary school teaching. Some of the topics included in the CKT are social studies, science, mathematics, and reading and language arts. Your Washington DC Praxis tutoring instructor can provide practice questions to sharpen your skills and knowledge of the different topics on your specific Praxis assessment.

Can a Washington DC Praxis tutor near me teach me test-taking strategies too?

The benefits of private instruction don't stop with knowing about the specific topics covered on the test. Your teacher can also impart test-taking techniques that can help you whenever you get stumped by a question.

For the reading section of the Praxis CORE, for example, you'll face 56 questions that you have to finish in 85 minutes. The test consists of four types of stimulus material: short passages of approximately 100 words with two or three questions; long passages of approximately 200 words with four to seven questions; paired passages totaling approximately 200 words followed by four to seven questions; and brief statements followed by a single question. Working with Washington DC Praxis tutors can help you learn test-taking techniques such as the all of the above principle, eliminating obvious answers, and finding keywords in a question in order to get clues that can lead to the correct answer. These techniques can be helpful if you encounter questions that seem to have more than one correct answer.

Since there's also time pressure when taking the test, you'll want to be able to strike the right balance between carefully analyzing an item before answering and not spending too much time on a single question. Thanks to the experience and familiarity of your teacher with the format of the exam, they can teach you time management techniques that can help you use your time wisely when taking the test.
