Exams are the most stressful events in a student’s educational career. They often determine the grade for an entire class, and subsequently affect the student’s placement in other classes.
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.
