You have found what you think is ideal SAT or ACT tutoring and you are wondering what you should do to prepare for your lessons. The most important thing you can do at this stage is to make sure that you talk to your tutor about what you can expect. In fact, ask him or her if they can schedule some time – at least an hour – where you can talk about what you can expect going forward. Find out what kinds of strategies they plan to use during your sessions and also what they expect of you as a student.
It is very important that you know exactly what you want from your tutor. Here is an example. You have been great at math over the years but you don’t do very well in the sciences. Does it make any sense to spend half your time getting tutored on math concepts that you are already familiar with? Not quite; you should use most of your time getting familiar with science concepts that give you a hard time. Share with your tutor the areas where you really need help so that you can spend most of your time focusing on them.
That is not to say that you should ignore any of the subjects. You should make sure that you touch on each and every subject at least once a week and do a practice test to make sure that you are on top of things.
As you get tutored you shouldn’t forget the old saying – all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. You are still young and you need time off from your books to get some exercise, fresh air and time with family and friends.
