How to Overcome Test Anxiety
Timed exams can cause a debilitating subconscious, emotional battle to rage inside a student’s mind pitting the need to “get the right answer” against the overwhelming urge to “move faster”. This internal conflict affects every student, but it can paralyze some with anxiety. Additionally, anxiety spikes when students can eliminate all but two answer choices, but they are unable to decide which of the two is correct. As time passes, these cycles and conflicts repeat and pressure and anxiety build, leading to even more anxiety.
We teach students how to break these vicious cycles and control pressure and anxiety. They will learn advanced and powerful strategies about:
- Effective time management.
- Understanding the test-maker and what they want.
- Effectively working two answers against each other to get to the correct one.
What is Intuitive Math?
Schools tend to teach math as an abstraction. Without context, many students struggle. But those students who seem to “get math” naturally contextualize it on their own. Often without realizing it, they create intuitive strategies to understand the concepts and relationships. These Intuitive strategies are hands-on, simple, visual, and easy to understand yet they are powerful and essential for problem solving.
When math-anxious students learn and use intuitive strategies, they become part of the group that “Gets Math” allowing them to quickly solve problems they used to consider incomprehensible.
When the already math-proficient students learn these intuitive math strategies, their natural abilities explode, elevating them to “Math Beasts”!!
What are Test Taking Strategies?
Inefficient, ineffective, or non-existent strategies account for well over half of the questions students get wrong. The other half are caused by insufficient subject matter expertise.
Our test-taking strategies teach students to answer more questions correctly without increasing their subject matter expertise.
We teach students strategies like estimation, process of elimination, back-solving, and answer testing. Other strategies involve understanding the fundamental agendas of the test-makers and learning to logically prove that one answer must be correct by recognizing the fatal flaws in the other answers. Some of the more advanced strategies include recognizing repeating test-patterns and learning intuitive tools to organize complex information in a way the student understands.
