Increasing Reading Scores

The BEST way to increase reading comprehension scores is to read! Encourage your child to read for at least 15 minutes per day. They can read anything they like; it’s the exposure to vocabulary that will increase reading scores. We also recommend visiting to find some practice readings from other decades and centuries, which can also help students increase their reading scores.

What Can Central PA Test Prep Do For You?

“What services do you offer?” “How can you help my child?” These are two of the most commonly asked questions we receive when parents call or email us. Our service menu includes diagnostic tests, as well as private and group classes. Our diagnostic tests allow students to see which test is right for them and also areas where they may have a skill deficit, which they can work on on their own or sign up for our class or schedule private tutoring. During our classes (both private and group), students will review skills and strategies to tackle the SAT/ACT. Students will also take 2 practice tests and receive detailed reports about where extra study may be needed. Because of this preparation, many students feel that they walk into the test with confidence, which lowers anxiety and increases scores! Contact us to see what we can do for your son/daughter.

Preparing your child for the most important tests they’ll take!
