WATCH my interview with Stacey Howe-Lott, Videocast here:

On episode 116, Alexis Avila talks to SAT tutor and educator Stacey Howe-Lott. Stacey took the SAT about 45 times, answered approximately 10,000 questions, provided 20,000 explanations, and, has helped more than 500 students improve their scores.Stacey graduated from University of Puget Sound, with a B.A. in English, and has a Masters in Education from University of Virginia.

On today’s episode Stacey talks about her experiences working as an online SAT tutor and gives us a peak into the world of test prep, revealing the good and bad!

Great free SAT resources: PWN the SAT (challenging math), and The Critical Reader (reading and writing)

Advantages to online tutoring: most kids are comfortable online and you spend less time commuting to appointments

Best way for a student to increase his score? Know yourself and your weaknesses, then work on addressing them

A good tutor is: empathetic and an expert

How to avoid getting a bad tutor? Ask for references and talk to both parents and students

Take home tip for parents: Breathe, and choose one test to take (ACT or SAT)

Words of wisdom for teens: You can do anything you put your mind to, find your areas of improvement and work on them.
