How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?

The Preliminary SAT (PSAT), is also commonly referred to as the National Merit Qualifying Scholarship Test (NMSQT). This test is specifically designed to help students practice for the SAT, as well as allowing students to enter into the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) scholarship program. Since the exam is given only once a year, it is important that your child is fully prepared to take the test on the day of the exam. Consider helping your child prepare for their exam with a professional PSAT tutor in Louisville, KY.

The educational directors at Varsity Tutors are happy to help you find an independent, professional PSAT tutor in Louisville who may work with your child on an individual basis to help them achieve the highest score possible on the PSAT. You tutor may try to help your child prepare for both components of the exam. As an expert in the PSAT, and knowledgeable about the recent changes made to the test, your child's tutor may know just how to help them study for the evidence-based reading and writing section, and may also know how to help them review for the math section. For help connecting with PSAT tutors in Louisville, KY, contact one of our educational directors today.

Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

Louisville, KY PSAT tutoring
The student and I first discussed the scoring of the new PSAT. The math sub-section has a scaled score of 160-760, while the reading section has been combined with the Language/Writing to receive a combined single scaled score of 160-760. I think because she feels more confident with the math, she was glad to hear that the test now weighs the math more heavily than the verbal portions. However, she and I reviewed the Language/Writing section that she did for homework, and she did great on that as well, answering 40 out of 44 questions correctly. I'm hoping this will put her a bit more at ease about the verbal component of the test. I've assigned a reading section for next week's session.

At of the end of this session, I feel the student might not have much left to learn, all that's left for us is to practice. We have studied the whole test inside and out. We will probably just do practice tests from here on out. Today we mostly worked on grammar rules that he still had not mastered, and he felt comfortable by the end of the session.

We went over the student's practice test. She is doing well on substitution. Some unforeseen issues came up regarding percentages, but I think we can just review some tips on those to make those simple and easy next time. After going over the math and writing sections from her practice test, we turned back to going over the writing section, going over commonly confused words.

Before this session the student took the full online version on the PSAT. We reviewed all of the questions and identified where she got stuck. We created lists for both Reading and Writing of the areas she needs to focus on most (vocabulary, inferences). We also identified what would help her if she is down to two possible answer choices and is having trouble choosing. She needs to think about the audience for the text, author's style and tone, and the overall message of the text in order to help her pick the most appropriate answer. She also did some more practice with vocabulary and inferences. This week she will complete several reading and writing passages in one sitting.

The student is taking the October PSAT, so we devoted today's session to preparation. He is most challenged on the math section. We worked through a variety of math practice problems, ranging from simplifying algebraic equations to geometric ratios. He learns quickly, and he mainly needs to refresh his memory. Once he reviews a concept, he is able to solve problems without extra prompting. He also needs to pay more attention to detail. This goes for both math and grammar. His reading comprehension skills are pretty strong.
