Benefits of Online SAT Tutoring

For students preparing for college, taking the SATs is a key step. Many colleges require SAT scores as part of the admissions process, and even if they don’t, students often still have the option to include them as another deciding factor. However, the 3- to 4-hour long exam can seem daunting to students, especially if they’re not adequately prepared.

There are many books and programs available to students for practice so that they can become more familiar with the exam and the types of questions they must answer. Enlisting the help of a tutor can be incredibly beneficial to guide students through the preparation process, equip them with essential test strategies, and brush up on topics they may be struggling with.

In addition to in-person tutoring, Crafting Scholars now offers online SAT tutoring which can empower even more students to access the support they need to feel more confident when taking the exam. Here are just a few of the benefits of online tutoring:

Flexibility

As long as students have access to a computer and the Internet, they can log on for tutoring. This means that they can schedule a session between dance classes, after school, or while out of town — anywhere they may be! Plus, since tutoring is done online, there is no travel time to plan for, and they don’t have to find a ride. This can make things much easier for parents who are juggling a busy schedule.

Focus

Students can find a quiet, comfortable spot that works for them. They’re not forced to sit at a table, in a hard chair, or somewhere where there is a cold draft blowing. They’re able to learn from the comfort of their own home (or wherever they choose to set up shop). Being in a familiar place can also reduce distractions because students aren’t scoping out the room or other people around them. They can set up their work space in a way that they have everything they need and are relaxed and ready to learn.

Communication

Just like with in-person tutoring, students still have direct communication with the learning specialist. They may be separated by a computer screen, but they are still looking at and talking to a real person who can give immediate feedback, answer questions, and support their learning. It can also encourage students to practice explaining themselves more clearly and concisely in order to express what they are having difficulties with.

Technology

Although the SATs are a paper-based test, students are increasingly faced with using technology at school. Online tutoring can be a great way to practice these skills and become comfortable learning in a new environment with different tools. This can benefit them across multiple areas of their education.
