To attend the college of their choice students must first get their foot in the door and that process starts with taking the SAT or ACT. Preparing to take these standardized tests ensures their axe is sharpened and ready. But how to decide which one will give your student a better score Fortunately there is a diagnostic test that can help your stu- dent determine which is better suited for them. The SAT and ACT exams consist of different subtests. For example the writ- ing subtest of the SAT is structured differently than the English subtest of the ACT. Additionally the ACT has a science subtest not included on the SAT. At Victory Step Test Prep their di- agnostic assessment can examine your childs strengths and the different parameters of each exam and make recommendations as to which will likely yield your childs best performance. Varun Tewari of Victory Step says Its often best to focus more effort on one exam and this diagnostic can identify which one. Tewari almost always suggests Victory Steps di- agnostic for any of their clients enrolled in a one- on-one tutoring program. These one-on-one pro- grams are ideal for stu- dents who get distracted easily and offer a lot of flexibility with scheduling especially for those students who are involved in a lot of extracurricular activities. Victory Step also offers group preparation for either exam. Both plans are very af- fordable as compared to other nationwide test prep companies and they are very successful. The key to Victory Steps success is the amazing qualifications of their tutors. Who better to help your student prepare than someone who scored in the top 2 on the exam themselves All of their tutors have been teaching four to five years and want to motivate and encourage your child to do their best. Tewari says We want to make sure tutoring is a fun process so they dont dread it. Ultimately he says he hopes all of his clients can find what their passion is and excel in that passion. Victory Step can help them with the tools they need to get started. by AliciaWanek StaffWriter We want to make sure tutoring is a fun process so they dont dread it. - Varun Tewari Victory Step Test Prep
