With so much at stake, student stress levels are at an all-time-high. When your student is facing a high-stakes exam, give them every advantage possible. Tutoring offers students the opportunity to combat anxiety, recall information faster, and conquer exams with confidence!

Exam anxiety is a natural response to testing situations. It is common in students, as nearly 40% of students report feeling some form of moderate to high exam anxiety. Now, keep in mind that exam anxiety is not merely nervousness—it can cause students to freeze-up on exams.
Exam anxiety causes students to make mistakes they would not normally make under high-pressure circumstances. Their reasoning becomes jumbled as panic sets in, eventually causing them to score lower than their peers by an average of 12%! Exam anxiety is a real issue that affects student performance in the short and long term. Thankfully, there is a solution.
