SAT/ACT Test Prep: Group Course Vs. Tutoring


Tagged: , , , ,

Preparing for the SAT/ACT is a must.

Assuming self-study isn’t the best option it comes down to a group course and individual tutoring.

The difference between the two can be summed up in a fitness center analogy.

When not working out alone: do you prefer a group class or personal trainer?

Some just need other “bodies” there as group accountability for motivation to show up and do the work (fear of embarrassment).

Others need individualized accountability.

Both work, but it depends on your personality and learning style.

One factor to consider is which type is more like your son/daughter: extrovert or introvert?

In this context extroverts might do better in a group course because the extra faces will energize him/her while introverts may lean towards individual tutoring because they prefer a more intimate setting.

Group courses offer more value while individual tutoring provides more attention/customization.

Ultimately it’s your call, but remember the greatest factor is finding the right tutor for your child’s personality and learning style.
