RULES FOR TUTORING
- Take the test, for real. A good tutor knows the test inside and out. A great tutor signs up and takes the test. Performance counts. Practice test taking techniques while under the gun in a room full of teenagers. It’s fun.
- Write a blog. Start writing your test-taking thoughts out. Give some pointers. Make some practice sheets of math problems. Try to imitate the test.
- Read. A lot. I’m not the biggest fan of Twitter, there is just too much for me to read. I must be showing my age to be a bigger fan of Facebook. I just like its features for posting more than tweets. Follow some other tutors and educational posts. One of my favorites is The Prospect. Another is US News College FB Page. Additional notables are Barron’s, New York Times, and Huffington Post; all have excellent education and test prep articles. I get a Gmail news feed on SAT, The College Board, and ACT. It is well worth having Google search out daily news stories to keep track of the industry.
