Teen Street Team member Brianna has recently been using Tutor.com in lieu of an in-person tutor to boost her standardized test taking skills. Read about the experience below:
Hi, my name is Brianna and I am a member of the Teen Street Team!
As a junior in high school, my high school career culminates with SAT scores, a critical GPA, and college applications around this time of the year. While I still haven’t taken the SAT yet, I am studying every chance I have to perfect my standardized test taking knowledge. With that, comes the wonderful resource of Tutor.com.
Due to social distancing guidelines and restrictions, I have not been able to meet with any tutors face to face. This has been especially detrimental as I’m studying for my upcoming SAT. However, when I logged onto Tutor.com the past few weeks, it has really helped with my SAT prep! I can have easy and direct access to a well-qualified tutor who can give me specific information and guidance about a concept I’m struggling with. I specifically had a problem with circle arcs and angles (shoutout to the juniors who are also struggling with this!) and it was answered quickly through a direct chat with a really nice and informative tutor.
Not only does Tutor.com help with SAT prep, but all sorts of topics! Ranging from reading and essay writing to calculus! It is such a helpful resource and I am very grateful that I was able to learn about it through this experience.
