How our test prep works
DETERMINE BASELINE & GOALS
First we establish your baseline score, either through a prior test or a new practice test. We’ll also discuss your admissions plan and timeline.
ESTABLISH A PLAN AND START PREPARING
Next, we’ll create a plan and your tutor will implement it with you. Sessions will occur regularly (with the same tutor) that take the stress out of the prep process while boosting your score.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE ON TRACK:
Once every few weeks we will reevaluate your progress and refine the study plan and tutoring to improve weak areas.
A Typical Test Prep session
Your tutor will review any prior “homework” with you, noting any errors so you recognize and avoid them in the future.
Your tutor will teach you the academic concepts covered by the exam. These might include math, science, reading comprehension, grammar, writing, etc.
It’s not enough to just learn content. Successful students understand how to recognize “patterns” in questions and avoid getting tricked.
You’ll learn how to combine content and strategy to tackle any question on the exam.
Your tutor will assign specific sections of the exam based on your session, and full-length exams (less often) to make you familiar with the test-taking environment.

Common Challenges with the OAT
The Optometry Admission Test (OAT) is used to assess applicants' eligibility for admission to an optometry school. Since the OAT is a standardized exam, your performance is only good as other students perform in comparison. These exams are used to compare your knowledge with the knowledge of other applicants. In essence, your OAT performance has a significant effect on your admissions competitiveness and financial aid opportunities. Because the OAT lasts nearly four hours, adequate preparation is required. It is important to begin studying at least three months before the test, doing a large number of practice problems along the way, and analyzing what's wrong and how to improve. TutorNerds can give you the edge you need in your studies with our one-on-one professional teachers who can re-teach the material and provide useful tips and tricks on how to perform well on the OAT.
How to get the best OAT tutor near you
With young students who take OAT, it's important to partner with a tutor who can explain these concepts in a way students can understand. The tutor needs to know the material, but also has to have experience working with young students in particular. It all comes down to experience: Has the tutor produced good results with OAT students before. That's why students get results from TutorNerd: Our tutors make difficult concepts easy to understand (check out all our five-star reviews).
