Common Core State Test Prep Workshops & Classes


While the system of high-stakes testing does seem to be slowly shifting, performance on state tests still can have an impact on student choice when it comes to middle and high school, particularly in the 4th and 7th grades. In the workshops, we try to defuse the stress built up around it all and instill confidence in our students by thoroughly preparing them without overwhelming them. We deconstruct the tests with the students, helping them to understand exactly what is being asked of them and why. The students practice specific skills, discover shortcuts, and learn how to manage their time on test day. We also manage to have a lot of fun in the process. We promise! 

The classes will have a maximum of 10 students. Individual or group sessions for test prep are also available through the tutoring page.
