Thank for your interest in working with Boston Tutoring Services ! We are excited to continue our monthly newsletters of tutoring tips, helpful reminders, registration dates, and special offerings. 

Happy February!

We hope you are having a good winter so far and we are grateful that the snow hasn't caused too many problems yet this winter. Your child may be going through midterms, or starting to 
prepare for SAT and ACT tests. Now is a good time to get a 
good handle on any class subjects that are weighing your child down, and to step in if organization and time management are affecting your child's grades. There is always time to change 
course if your child is struggling in school!

It's Time to Prep for the SAT and ACT Tests!

Plan for your child to take a standardized test at least twice to give them the best chance of a high score. 

The next SAT will be March 11th and the May 6th.
The next ACT will be April 8th and June 10th.

Our tutors have been fully trained in the new content 
and test-taking strategies of both the SAT and ACT tests. We focus on time-management and customize our instruction to meet the needs of each student. 

If you are not sure whether your child should take the SAT or ACT, please see the article below.

SAT vs. ACT: Choose Wisely

We often see students who feel more comfortable with one test over the other, so if you have the time to start early, we can create the best action plan for them moving forward this spring.
