How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?
Doing well on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) can allow you to become a National Merit Scholar, a prestigious honor noticed by colleges that may be awarded with copious financial aid. If you're serious about doing as well as you can on the PSAT, access to a top PSAT tutor can provide you with an extra competitive edge on test day. Let Varsity Tutors connect you with a professional test-taking tutor in your area to help you build the skills needed to succeed.
The PSAT/NMSQT tests your critical reading skills, your problem-solving skills in math, and your writing skills - not by asking you to write anything, but by having you answer multiple-choice questions where you will identify grammatical and rhetorical errors of expression. The critical reading portion of the PSAT/NMSQT is broken down into two sections, each 25 minutes long. This portion has a total of 48 questions, 13 of which are sentence completion questions that test the depth and breadth of your knowledge in vocabulary. The remaining 35 questions test your ability to understand, interpret, and analyze passages of text. A private PSAT/NMSQT tutor can help you prepare for this section by going over reading passage examples and testing your comprehension of the material, providing you with the kinds of questions you are sure to see on the exam.
