How to make the most out of SAT tutoring?
You may be wondering what to do now that you’ve decided on private SAT tutoring in London to help you achieve your goals. This is an incredible opportunity to lean on the invaluable experience and expertise of a knowledgeable tutor. Dynamic tutors at A-List Education do so much more than prepare students well to answer the different sections of the SAT, they can help in planning revision schedules, keep students accountable, and provide motivation when students begin to feel overwhelmed by what they want to achieve.
6 Tips to maximise the benefits of tutoring lessons
How do students make the most of their SAT tutoring in London? Here are some of the best tips that have helped our students in the past.
1. Don’t skip tutoring sessions
Tutoring sessions are only useful if you attend them. This may sound obvious but it often happens that students skip sessions unnecessarily. Of course, if an emergency arises and attending a session is not possible, reschedule SAT tutoring in London as soon as possible.
2. Prepare for lessons beforehand
Review the material to be covered in that section. Take note of difficult areas or questions that you are struggling with. Your tutor will want to spend more time and focus on these areas to help improve your understanding of them. This is your opportunity to ask as many questions as necessary.
Preparation for sessions also includes being fresh and alert, so that you are better able to concentrate. If your session is scheduled on a day you have a busy schedule, give yourself time to relax before the start of the session.
3. Take comprehensive notes during the lessons
Note-taking plays a vital role when it comes to revising content before the test. These notes are added explanations that are supplementary to course material. Make sure that these notes are kept in the same place as your course materials, so you don’t have to waste time in finding scattered pieces of paper. It helps to use a proper notebook to keep organised.
4. Honesty is important
Your tutor cannot help you if you don’t speak up and let them know you are struggling or feeling overwhelmed. Be honest about what is working and where you need extra help. This may be to manage your time better or find effective study techniques to implement.
5. Adapt a positive mindset
Approaching tutoring sessions with the right mindset helps keep you focused and engaged in your lesson. Your ability to learn and understand those difficult questions benefit from the confidence boost that comes from a ‘can-do’ mentality.
6. Review what you’ve covered in the session
Immediately after, or as soon as possible, go over what was covered in the session. This is a successful study technique used to retain information so you don’t forget it easily.
