How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?
The Preliminary SAT (PSAT) is a standardized test that is used to help students prepare for the SAT. The PSAT has three versions, including the PSAT 8/9, the PSAT 10, and the PSAT/NMSQT. The PSAT 8/9 is given to students in grades eight and nine. The PSAT 10 is offered to students in grade 10. The PSAT/NMSQT is available to students in grades ten and eleven.
The PSAT takes approximately three hours to complete and is divided into two sections. These include math and evidence based reading and writing. The math section covers advanced math, data analysis, problem solving, and algebra. The evidence based reading and writing section includes text complexity, informational graphics, command of evidence, and words in context.
It is common for students to not put as much effort into studying for the PSAT because it is a practice test for the SAT. However, the PSAT/NMSQT is a National Merit Qualifying Test, which means that if your child performs well on this version of the exam that they could be eligible for a college scholarship. Additionally, every version of the test should give your child insight into what the SAT will be like. If you want to strive to ensure that your child is as prepared as possible for the SAT, you should connect them with a private tutor. The educational directors at Varsity Tutors could help your child connect with PSAT tutors in Orange County, CA.
Varsity Tutors could help your child make their PSAT study sessions more productive by finding them a tutor in Orange County, CA. Working with a tutor on an individual level allows your child to focus on subject material that they are having the most trouble with. This may not happen in a group study setting because it is unlikely that every student is struggling with the same area. This could lead to study sessions where the group is going over material your child is already proficient in. This just wastes time that they could be using to study material they actually need to study.
An expert PSAT tutor that we connect your child with in Orange County could help them be confident on exam day. While studying for any standardized test can be stressful and frustrating, your child's tutor will be there throughout the entire process to offer advice and encouragement.
Your child's private PSAT tutor is available to meet them at a time and location that works best for both you and your child.
