How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?
As you begin to think about applying to colleges, you are probably considering whether or not to take the Preliminary SAT, or PSAT. This is a standardized test administered every fall, created to parallel the experience of taking the SAT. Taking this exam can be useful as a study tool for taking the SAT later, but the PSAT also determines whether or not you are eligible for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Qualifying as a finalist for this scholarship could help you get into the college you want and help you to be able to afford tuition. But, how do you begin to prepare for the four sections of the PSAT? Varsity Tutors could help you make your PSAT study sessions more productive by finding you a tutor in New Haven.
There are four sections on the PSAT, which takes two hours and 45 minutes total to complete. There are two mathematics sections and two critical reading/writing sections. You must be able to apply a variety of algebra formulas, problem-solving, and data analysis. The writing sections involve critical reading and discussion skills, including the ability to parse data from graphs and charts and understand text complexity. Most students are better at one of these areas than the other, but with a tutor's help, you might improve your skills in the weaker of these areas, so you can successfully complete the test. You can easily connect with a qualified PSAT tutor in New Haven, CT, by contacting one of our educational directors.
