If you're looking for assistance before taking your Praxis tests, a Virginia Beach Praxis course can be a big help toward helping you maximize your chances at earning a top score, and Varsity Tutors offers excellent live, online Praxis courses. While passing the Praxis is just one of the options to earn your teaching certification in Virginia, taking the exam can make it easier for you to go from Old Dominion University to landing a teaching job in nearby Maryland or North Carolina, both of which use the Praxis as an accepted test for their teachers to earn certification.
Even if your goal is to go from Norfolk State University to become a teacher at a Virginia Beach city school, such as Bayside or Ocean Lakes High Schools, taking the Praxis can be a great way to earn your certification and not have to worry about taking another testing option. When you take the Praxis test, you'll be evaluated on certain academic skills and subject-specific knowledge that you'll need in order to effectively teach a class. If you're worried about your test-taking skills, a Virginia Beach Praxis class can make a big difference in helping you shake off those jitters and show that you know your subject well enough to pass on your knowledge to students.
Why should I consider taking a Virginia Beach Praxis prep course?
Taking a course on the Praxis is all about preparation for the day of the test when you get to show that you understand the material and can effectively teach it. With so much that could possibly come up on the reading, writing, and mathematics assessments, it can seem overwhelming to think about studying all of it and remembering what you need to know for the test.
That's where preparation comes in handy. In the classroom, most teachers will go over important points multiple times with their students to emphasize that what they're discussing is something that they'll need to know in order to have success when it matters most. By taking the time to practice those skills in the classroom as they're being taught, a student is more likely to recall the information when it's time for the test and he or she needs to show mastery of the material.
Taking a Virginia Beach Praxis course is based on the same idea. During your course, you'll be able to develop your test-taking skills and maybe try a few practice tests to see what topics are your strongest and where you need to improve. By working on your weaknesses in a situation that allows you to make a few mistakes with no penalty, you could maximize your chances of being as prepared as possible when it's time to take your test.
What skills can I improve in a Virginia Beach Praxis class?
Whether you're taking a Principles of Learning and Teaching exam or a subject-specific test, a class can go a long way toward helping you become comfortable with the test. Depending on your test, you'll be sitting for somewhere between one and four hours, and it's important for you to be able to process information quickly and craft it into an argument for your exam's constructed response questions.
Fortunately, during your class, you'll be working in a collaborative setting with other students who can provide multiple perspectives on the content you're covering during your class discussions. When you get several different perspectives on the same information, everyone may be able to benefit and put what they've learned from each other to good use, and the best part is that you'll be able to attain that information from the comfort of your home because every course is conducted online. Plus, each course is led by a qualified instructor who understands the test and how to get a good score on it, giving you multiple avenues to improve your chances of getting the score that you desire.

...algebra instructor. Students praise my tireless patience. I'm never judgmental when students struggle with even the most basic math problems. I encourage them to ask questions until they fully understand the material. I practice the Socratic method of tutoring. I don't give students the answers; I ask them probing questions to gauge their level of understanding and elicit the correct answers from them. When they're wrong, I ask students why they're wrong. This makes them...

As an English teacher, creating a sense of excitement in reading and writing is what I strive for in my students. Literature and writing played an important role in my life as a young girl and I wish for my students to experience the same feelings. When a student tells me they just read, "....." and loved it, I know I inspired them just a little.
