Algebra help in Wichita, KS.

Going to college is an exciting adventure. Your children will not only continue their education, but they will also learn many other skills and have experiences that will prove useful throughout their lives. However, getting accepted by a college can also be very stressful ordeal! 

Applying to a college is a long process that has no shortcuts and if your children are dealing with this situation, The Tutoring Center in Wichita would like to tell you about some of the things they should avoid in their application. 

Deadlines

Missing a deadline is a common mistake. Remember that in most cases these dates can’t be postponed and failing to observe them mean a waste of effort, time and money. It’s very likely that your children will apply to several colleges, so write the deadlines in your calendar and keep an eye on them. 

Proofread

The admissions office will look at every detail of an application and this includes typos, misspellings and grammatical errors, which can be simply avoided by proofreading the application several times. Also, make sure that the form has been filled out completely and refrain from using words you don’t completely understand. 

Not Talking to School Counselor 

School counselors play an important role in the admissions process and your children should inform them about their plans so they can provide transcripts and recommendation letters that are necessary for a successful application. 

These apparently small details can be the difference between your children getting accepted by the college they have chosen or not, so don’t forget them! Also, be sure to read this previous post containing an useful checklist for college admissions

SAT/ACT tests are also crucial in this process and at The Tutoring Center we have programs to help your children reach their score goal. We offer a free diagnostic assessment to pinpoint the specific areas that need to be improved. Think about us next time you are looking for tutoring in Wichita
