How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?
Students in the tenth and eleventh grades often take the PSAT, and for a couple of different reasons. First, it's a good introduction to the SAT that you may take in eleventh or twelfth grade. Second, as indicated by the test's other name, the NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test), if you get an excellent score, you may be eligible for the National Merit Scholarship. There are also PSAT tests that may be taken in your eighth, ninth, of tenth grade year, just to measure your progress so far, but which do not count towards eligibility for the scholarship. This test may likely be your first national standardized test, and it would be wise to prepare for it with a personal tutor. Varsity Tutors may find you a hand-picked PSAT tutor in Boston who may love what they teach, which allows them to make your study sessions engaging.
There are two components to the PSAT. First is the evidence-based reading and writing section, which tests your ability to use words in context, your command of evidence, your ability to use informational graphics, and to find out how advanced you are with text complexity. The math section tests your abilities in advanced math and algebra, your abilities to problem solve and analyze data, and other math topics. Your goal when taking the test may be just to practice for the SAT, or you may be really focused on getting the National Merit Scholarship. Whatever your reasons, our educational directors may connect you with a PSAT tutor in Boston, MA, after considering all of your specific goals and needs.
