SAT or ACT Prep: 3 Things Every Parent Should Keep in Mind
We understand that preparing for the SAT or ACT exam can be a stressful process for both students and parents. Here are three things to keep in mind when it gets tough:
1. It’s Smart to Start Preparing in the Summer
Not only is important to start thinking about the ACT and SAT early but to also take advantage of summer break when your child is out of school. The long, lazy days of summer are perfect for planning and preparing for the ACT and SAT exam.
2. Communication is the Backbone of the Test Prep Process
As a parent, you play a big role in the success of your student, so it’s important to communicate regularly and honestly. Start by discussing your expectations about the preparation process and clearly outline a plan and establish goals. Strive to find a happy medium that works for your family’s schedule and be realistic with your child.
Remember, this can be a very stressful time for your teen, so it’s important to remain calm and supportive throughout the entire test prep process.
3. Standardized Tests are Coachable
It’s true that standardized tests are coachable and adequate ACT and SAT preparation can lower your student’s anxiety levels and dramatically increase their scores. Consistency and starting test prep early are two factors that eliminate stress.

I think A-List is a great organization. My tutor was positive and tailored the material to my learning style. She made learning each subject fun and presented new topics in an engaging fashion. Thank you so much to A-List for helping me achieve my personal best!
A-List gave me more than just practice tests and test-taking tips, though these were invaluable. My tutor connected with me on a personal level and helped me understand that I was capable of getting the score I wanted. Suddenly, I viewed my test-taking experience as a challenge, not a burden. I walked into my ACT with the confidence that I knew exactly how to conquer every aspect of the test.”
Mother of Phoebe C.
Both my children had an amazing experience with A-List! Steadily, she worked hard to improve her test scores. Taking the practice tests allowed her to gain confidence and learn to manage her time during the tests. Then a college advisor helped her write her college essays. She was an amazing guide who helped Phoebe focus and streamline her supplements and essays. Now she will be attending her dream college, Rice University, School of Architecture!
