About 10 years ago I started tutoring students to help them prepare for the math section of the ACT. I did so, almost as an experiment, to see if I could or say things differently in my traditional math classroom to help boost students’ scores on the test. I found out quickly that there were most definitely things that I could change in class. If you are the parent or teacher of a high school student, you know the pressure they feel with regards to standardized tests for college admissions. My goal as a teacher/tutor is to alleviate the panic students experience and help them walk into the testing center feeling confident and prepared. If you are reading this, I know you are wanting the same thing for your kiddos. See what you can do tomorrow to help boost your students’ confidence and hopefully, their scores in my guest post on the ClassFlow blog.
