How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?
If your student is preparing to take any version of the PSAT, then a private tutor might be an option to consider for test prep help. A personal tutor can work with your child at a time and place that fits into your schedule, even meeting online! Varsity Tutors can help you in locating a dedicated PSAT tutor in Phoenix, Arizona. Your child's tutor is experienced and can help with any version of the exam (the PSAT 8/9 for eighth graders, the PSAT 10 for tenth graders, and the PSAT NMSQT, typically for juniors). The PSAT NMSQT is also known as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT). Should your child do well on this exam, they may qualify for a scholarship for college!
Phoenix, Arizona, PSAT tutors can provide your child with helpful practice exams to pinpoint the exact areas they need to focus on during sessions. The PSAT has three sections – evidence-based reading, writing, and math. Once your child and their tutor have determined which section or sections need to be focused on, they can work together to devise a tailor-made study plan for your child. Perhaps command of evidence is a problem area for your child, but they understand advanced math topics. If this is the case, they can go over command of evidence concepts and skip advanced math. The priority in the sessions is your child's learning. Maybe your child understands the topics that are covered on the exam just fine but struggles with test anxiety. This is common for students when facing a big exam, particularly one that is timed and unfamiliar to them. Their tutor can help calm their nerves by providing insight on what to expect on exam day and what the structure of the test will be. The tutor can also assign practice exams to your student and time them as they are working to help them get used to the test day environment. When the big day does finally roll around, your student will only have 60 minutes to work on the reading section, 35 minutes to complete the writing section, and 45 minutes to work on the math section with a calculator and 25 minutes to work on the same section without a calculator (70 minutes total for math).
