Math & ELA Common Core State Test in Queens and Manhattan
Nothing can be more stressful for students than the angst and anxiety of Common Core State Testing. High-stakes testing has become a part of the reality of education in our world. Regardless of your opinion as a parent, performing well on Common Core State Testing is a pre-requisite for students if they are to be placed in honors classes. Furthermore, 7 th and 8 th grade test scores, specifically, are important for student placement in advanced high school classes.
To make matters even more challenging for students is the difficulty level of the Common Core State Testing. Many parents have chosen to have their children opt out of taking the test, but that also comes with some penalties for both the student and the school they attend. Despite the increased difficulty of Common Core State Testing, all students, regardless of their academic ability, are encouraged to actually sit for the exam. Many veteran and current teachers have complained that this test assesses knowledge and material that is above the vast majority of students’ grade levels.
What Does All This Mean for Your Child?
Considering both the difficulty and importance of Common Core State Tests in math and ELA, private tutoring is an essential and valuable investment in helping to improve your child’s performance. Your child’s classroom teachers will be preparing them for the Common Core State Tests with a few months of preparation, but that is done in a classroom setting of approximately 30 students on average. The reality is that some students will have issues in both subjects that may not get addressed due to the vast content that needs to be covered as well as the number of students that need to be helped.
