How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?

The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is a milestone for high schoolers. Your student could spend significant amounts of time studying for it and preparing in various ways, including by taking the Preliminary SAT, or PSAT. The National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT) is generally taken in the fall. It has been redesigned to reflect changes to the SAT, but the PSAT/ NMSQT taken in 10th or 11th grade is most just like the original. Your child can also prepare for the PSAT 10, which is not a scholarship test, or the PSAT 8/ 9. Considering the fact that there are multiple types of the exam, it's important for test prep to be focused. Varsity Tutors' educational directors can help you find an experienced, professional PSAT tutor in Henderson, NV, for your hard-working student, who will prepare them for the exam.

Getting ready for a 2 hour, 45 minute test presents unique challenges. Your student must have subject proficiency, and also understand the format of the PSAT. This may not be done without practice tests and relevant study materials. A Henderson PSAT tutor can provide every one of these, and build on your child's weaknesses well in advance of the exam. The one-on-one assistance is far different than the "one-size fits all" approach of several test prep classes. A tutor can address your child's specific needs, and even work with their unique learning style.

Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

Henderson, NV PSAT tutoring
We discussed the student's English assignment today. Her teacher had given her several texts and asked her to analyze various satirical techniques used within. (She was helpful enough to email me some pictures so I could read them ahead of time.) We focused mostly on the Benjamin Franklin autobiography. The student had already done most of the work, but she wanted to discuss her answers to gain confidence. I tried to put as many of our thoughts in writing as possible to provide some ideas and phrases that she might find helpful on the test.

The student and I worked through three SAT reading comprehension passages with particular focus on humanities and social science passages. He generally did well on understanding the context of the passages but struggled with detail retention, so we focused on returning to the passage for information and on process of elimination. We also discussed an essay he had completed and reviewed test-taking strategies. He will be taking the SAT this upcoming week.

The student and I covered specific SAT test questions as well as important test-taking strategies. I stressed the importance of being open to changing your reasoning on a question if the correct process did not lead to the right answer. Additionally, we covered the advantages of the old SAT vs. the new SAT. In the specific math and writing questions, we looked at the division between isosceles triangles, combinations, permutations, and number sequences.

I had the students practice writing and using linear equations. I began talking about the y-intercept and slope and how we can use them to write linear equations. I brought up some problems involving linear equations that would likely appear on the SAT. We also had a short talk about logarithms since they had a quiz coming up.

We covered SAT Literature - Poetry. We broke down rhyme schemes and meter, then we looked at rhyming verse and free verse poems. We did two question sets together and then the student did 2 more on his own. We discussed strategies such as reading the first question after finishing the first stanza of a long poem to see what the testmaker thinks is important about that stanza. I gave him two more poems to complete for homework.

Today the student and I were able to get a lot accomplished. We began by reviewing his homework and answering any questions he had when he completed his practice sections. We then dove directly into completing timed practice sections in reading and writing. After each timed section, we discussed any errors/ incorrect answers thoroughly and included test-taking strategies on time management and identifying typical SAT tricks. I will meet with him again next week.
