Tutor Talk

Words of wisdom, advice and true confessions from Applerouth’s professional tutors.

Jenna Berk, Preferred Tutor
Washington DC Market

“My advice for anyone taking the SAT or ACT is to have fun with it. That might sound counterintuitive – what could be less fun than a standardized test, right? But the brain naturally focuses on what it most enjoys, whether it’s The Hunger Games or a football game, so you need to trick your brain into thinking it’s having fun, and therefore the information you’re taking in needs to be remembered. So whether you’re trying to beat everyone else in the room, or just trying to frustrate the test-makers, have fun!”
