STUDENTS AGREE: Y3K TUTOR IN YOUR HOME CHANGES LIVES
About 2 weeks ago, I tried out the Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutoring service not knowing anything about the service or its tutors. I needed a tutor to help me with the math portion of the TEAS nursing exam. I met with the owner and was absolutely impressed and happy with the service that I received. He went out of his way to work around my schedule. He accurately observed my strengths and weaknesses and developed a plan of attack that best suited me and my study habits. He also was able to breakdown each formula and put it into very simple terms/steps that were easy for me to execute. After the test, I relayed the good news of my 10 point jump from the previous test result to him and he was really pleased to hear about my success. I am very content with my experience with my tutor. I highly recommend and I will be going back any chance I get.
It’s not the amount of time you devote, but what you devote to the time that counts.
Although the SAT tests are optional to get in to many colleges, high test scores can be an advantage when applying. Many college admissions specialists recommend high school students take the exams only if they expect to score well. Strong scores on the SAT and ACT exams will help you, but these colleges won’t hold it against you for not taking them.

More and more colleges each year realize the SAT is not an effective measure of student intelligence. The list of schools no longer requiring the SAT grows by the year. Several colleges including UMass Lowell and Salem State University have made the main SAT and ACT tests optional.
The best way to study is to maximize the amount of study days. For example if a student has a test in two weeks and they spread it out over that two week period, they are going to score a lot higher than if they tried to do it all the night before. Even if they try to study two or three days before, their scores will not be as high as if they used the entire two week period.

True or False: The longer you study in one sitting, the higher your score will be.
False. The key to studying is to study smart or more efficiently as opposed to studying longer. Many students do not know how to study efficiently and waste a lot of time. Successful students tend to figure out what the teacher has deemed most important and that is what they study. These students don’t study everything, just what is important. Students that tend to earn “C”, “D” and “F” grades try to study everything, which automatically means they probably haven’t spent enough time studying the important material.

Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Test Taking Strategies #11: Timed Test – First Do The Easy Ones
Some students go in sequential order of the test and get caught up on a question. They spend extra time on that one question and then run out of time. They end up not answering the last few questions due to lack of time. Not anymore!
The trick to defeating a timed test is to work out of order. Answer the easy questions you know. Skip the hard questions or questions that will take a long time to answer. Then after you have answered all the questions you can, go back and spend the rest of your time on the challenging ones. This way a student will earn a higher test score for answering more correct answers.

Make sure a skipped question is also skipped on the scantron/fill in the bubble page as well. If not everything will be wrong! For example if you skip #8 and answer #9, make sure that #9’s answer is in the right spot and not accidentally in #8’s bubble. When students make this common mistake every answer on the scantron sheet will be wrong from #8 until the end of the test.
