Test Anxiety

At Nurturing Wisdom, we work with a lot of bright and motivated students who don’t test to their potential because of crippling test anxiety. Nurturing Wisdom is unique because we address test anxiety as an integral part of tutoring, and we know that the key to overcoming test anxiety is to treat it as a concrete skill, to be taught and practiced like any other academic skill.

It’s not enough to tell students “Stop thinking negative thoughts.” We have to help them practice the thoughts that lead to success. We do this in a variety of ways, from teaching students to free-write their worries, to working on relaxation strategies, to teaching students an explicit strategy to replace negative thoughts with positive ones.
