ACT or SAT Practice Test this Saturday

By | January 10, 2017

Tutoring Club of Longmont is hosting a free SAT/ACT/PSAT test  this Saturday, January 14th at 9am. Call (303-651-0800) or email (LONGMONTCO@TUTORINGCLUB.COM) the Tutoring Club to save a space. This is a great way for the students to get a sense of their skills and ease into the process of preparing for these standardized tests.
The test will run about four hours and the SAT and ACT will include an essay. The PSAT does not have an essay component. The students are welcome to bring their own calculator, a water bottle, and a small snack. We will have the test results ready two days after the test. At that point the tutoring club will schedule a meeting with the student and their parents to discuss the test results and potential prep course options (these are not mandatory- you don’t have to sign up for prep courses!).

Lots of scholarships are available

By | January 6, 2017

Mavs there are a lot (and we mean a lot) of scholarships available on Naviance. I just uploaded eight new scholarships today (Local: United Power, Local Bill Berens, Local: Volunteerism/Community Service etc.)! Many of these have due dates of January 31st so get on it and get the money.

Again, remind yourself – earning $1,000 for four hours of work means you just earned $250/hour – there are VERY few jobs that give you that hourly wage…
