Pop quiz: What three letters instill fear and anxiety in every teen?
You got it. And between basketball practice, piano lessons and the ever expanding social calendar, little Johnny is a little short on time (and rusty on ratios). Don’t go tiger-mom on your kid. Just bring in one of these experts to help him crack the test.
Betty Faber, of Boost College Prep, started her boutique, one-on-one tutoring center ten years ago after a long tenure as an English teacher in the Tenafly public schools. Each program is specifically tailored to your child’s needs after carefully identifying any weak areas; like teaching strategies to improve test stamina and helping kids keep their concentration for the entire 5 hours. The space is clean and comfortable and always stocked with snacks and drinks so kids don’t feel the need to rush home if they get hungry. And once they’ve aced the test, Boost can help them get into the school of their choice with college counseling and application help.
