How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?
The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) is an important and challenging milestone in a child's education. An enthusiastic PSAT tutor in Providence, RI, could help make your child's educational process more efficient, more enjoyable, and less stressful.
The PSAT is a practice test for the SAT, so it mirrors that critical college admissions test in format and content. The PSAT is administered once per year, usually in October. As preparation for the SAT, the PSAT covers many of the same topics in reading, writing, and mathematics. The Evidence Based Reading and Writing section tests reading comprehension and understanding of how words are used. The Math section tests algebra, problem solving, and other aspects of quantitative reasoning. There are three versions of the test given to students in grades 8 or 9 (PSAT 8/9), 10 (PSAT 10), or 10 and 11 (PSAT/NMSQT). The National Merit Scholarship Qualification Test (NMSQT) is important because high scores make the student eligible for a National Merit Scholarship or other rewards. The test also has a time limit of 2 hours and 45 minutes.
