    Parents paying big bucks to prepare kids for tests

    COLUMBUS (AP) - Parents increasingly stressed about their children's ability to get into a good college are forking over big bucks to companies that prepare students for standardized tests.

    Business is booming for companies like Sylvan Learn­ing Center, Kaplan Inc. and Huntington Learning Centers. The College Board, which ad­ministers the SAT, says 98% of students do some kind of test preparation.

    "Parents are looking for a leg up for their children, who now see tutoring as more acceptable rather than punitive," said Steven Pines, executive director of the Education Industry Association. "Tutoring companies have be­come more skilled at marketing, prices are more competitive, and an improving economy is providing parents with more disposable income to pay for services."

    Two-thirds of education service providers expect revenues to increase more 25 percent this year, said Pines, whose association represents private providers of education services…

    For those favoring a more personal approach, individual tutoring at centers like Sylvan can run parents between $30 and $80 per hour, Pines said.

    "I like coming here because you get smarter when you do," said 9 year old Emily Kleinhenz as she studied analogies at the Sylvan center in Delaware, a Columbus suburb. "On my last report card, I got four A's because I learned so much here.“ July 2005
