When you’re looking to start your career as an educator, make sure you’re as prepared as you can be by sitting down with Make the Grade. We’ve got you covered when it comes to PRAXIS prep and we can put your mind at ease!

  • Familiarize Yourself

    Your anxiety can be alleviated when it comes to taking your PRAXIS simply by taking practice tests. And even the process of taking the exam can be confusing, since there’s so many options on how to take it. We’ll iron everything out for you and figure out what’s best for you!

  • Private Tutoring

    You’re smart enough to study on your own for the PRAXIS, but sometimes it’s nice to have others looking over your work to see how you can improve. That’s where we come in. We’ll sit down with you see where you’re going wrong and how you can fix it.

  • PRAXIS Series

    There are a series of tests that make up the PRAXIS test. These include the Core Academic Skills for Educators and the Subject Assessment Series. You’ll want to be prepped for both. And we can help!
