iLearn Academy Followers:
My name is John Campbell. I am a manager, here, at iLearn Academy. I am writing to let you all know about a program we launched last spring called Guided Test Prep! Guided Test Prep was put together to offer students a convenient, low stress way to start preparing for standardized tests such as the PSATs or Terra Novas. Students who participated last year gave a lot of positive feedback, and said it was a very helpful to them. I wanted to take a moment to make sure that all iLearn Academy followers knew Guided Test Prep is available for you as well!
What it is...
Guided Test Prep was put in place to help 7th-11th grade students to prepare for standardized tests. We are offering Guided Test Prep for Math and Guided Test Prep for Reading Comprehension/English.
During Guided Test Prep students will:
- review math, and reading/English skills and concepts in an organized sequence
- learn to cope with being tested over many different skills at once
- develop strategies for reading and retaining longer passages
- practice timing and pacing
- learn to take advantage of multiple choice questions
- be made aware of common question phrasing or common traps in word problems
- receive frequent, timely feedback to measure progress on an ongoing basis
- get the repetition needed to master test taking skills
Why we made it...
Standardized tests are becoming a larger and larger part of a student's academic career. There are MAP tests, Terra Nova, PARCC, SSAT, ISEE, PSAT, PreACT, PSAT, ACT and SAT. Just too name a few!
I, and other iLearn Academy teachers, found ourselves being asked by parents and students alike to prepare them for standardized tests during our regular iLearn Academy sessions. We're happy to do that, but there are so many concepts to review for any standardized test, and students need a good amount practice to retain them. We always felt crunched for time to try and prepare students for standardized test and simultaneously help them prepare for their regular school work.
So, we put together Guided Test Prep for students to have a time and place which is devoted only to test preparation, where students could get the practice needed to master test taking concepts and skills.
Who it's for...
This program is for all students 7th-11th grade. However, it's most important to me that 8th graders and 10th graders participate, because these students have the most important upcoming tests to prepare for. 8th graders have high school placement and or admittance tests to prepare for (NWEA, Terra Nova, etc) , and 10th graders have college admittance exams (ACT, SAT, PSAT) looming on the horizon.
8th and 10th grade students who join Guided Test Prep now, will have ample time to prepare for these tests in a structured, low stress way.
Guided Test Prep is only $75/mo per subject for any student enrolled in concurrent iLearn Academy classes!
Please contact us at (847) 834 -0791 or contact us via or contact page if you are interested. To begin students will need to schedule a placement exam to determine starting levels for Guided Test Prep for math and/or Guided Test Prep for reading comprehension/English.
Thank you for your time. I hope to hear from you,
