Vermont Test Scores
Vermont public schools keep an eye on how their students are performing through exams administered by the Vermont Comprehensive Assessment System, or VCAS. These include using Smarter Balanced exams in English and math, and the VTSA science exam, for students through grade 8. High school students take end-of-course tests in a variety of core subjects. Many students also take tests like the ACT, SAT, SSAT, MCAT, or others to determine admission or placement in private schools, colleges, or graduate programs. Preparing effectively for any of these standardized exams can be difficult to do alone. Test preparation tutors in Vermont focus on the tests they know best, helping students cover both course material and strategies to maximize a student's score on a particular exam. Tutors also help students alleviate test anxiety so they can perform at their best on the day of the exam.
Beyond test preparation, outstanding Vermont tutors can help your student in specific academic subjects as well. The one-on-one approach of tutoring ensures your child gets the time and attention they deserve to understand subject material accurately. Creating study sessions that cater to your child’s specific needs is one way that tutors can provide a valuable supplement to classroom learning. As students begin to make progress, they may even embrace a subject they thought was too hard for them to understand.
