See, kids are always trying to get to America. I’m not sure going there will answer all their problems, but it sure will give them a spiffy resume some day.
And to help them along they need to learn English, which is where you come in.
Now, if you were anything like me, you probably didn’t like being pestered by students when you were just racing to get to the next class.
Nonetheless, your altruistic nature probably took over a time or two and you found yourself offering help, no matter how much you may have regretted it later.
Well, I’ve got good news today – you can let them help themselves.
That’s right! Unless you’re getting a pretty penny an hour for tutoring, I’d let them take a few online practice tests to improve their English. And if you have students studying for the ACT or SAT or even the GRE…well, you’re in luck!
Today I found out about a site called Varsity Tutoring.
Here you can find lots of English practice tests. Some are pretty darn difficult, but if your students are serious about taking these tests for real then they’ll need to know this stuff.
So why not check it out, pull it up in class, or mention it the next time you have a parent/teacher meeting? Chances are good quite a few students will write down the URL address and check it out at home.
And maybe then you can finally get out of class in a timely fashion, eh?
