When I was a junior in high school I struggled with the verbal section of the SAT. So my mom hired a tutor for me. During one of the sessions, he asked me to name the last book I read that wasn’t assigned. I couldn’t think of one. He said, “That’s why you are struggling with the verbal section. You don’t spend time reading.” That moment changed my approach to reading. I began reading more and more and ended up increasing my verbal score by two hundred points. I also tested into advanced placement English in college as a result.
