How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?

The PSAT, or the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test, is the preceding exam to the SAT. It is generally administered in the fall season. Its main purpose is to help students who plan to take the SAT prepare and practice taking a test of such depth. The test is also used as the National Scholarship Qualifying Test. If you are the parent of a student who needs practice and preparation for the PSAT, Varsity Tutors can help connect your child with a tutor who can help them do exactly that! Chicago PSAT tutoring can be a great option for students who wish to prepare with some additional guidance.

The PSAT has multiple versions that are administered depending on the grade the student is in when they take the exam. All versions of the test allow for 2 hours and 45 minutes for completion. The PSAT has two components that need to be prepared for: evidence-based reading and writing and math. The evidence-based reading assesses one's ability to identify and define words in context, analyze informational graphics, and comprehend complex texts. If your student is struggling with any of those concepts, a personal tutor can go over them with your child in preparation for the exam. Chicago, IL, PSAT tutors can help your student to focus on the areas where they need the most help.

Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

PSAT Tutoring review by Ishita in Chicago, IL
Today we started with another timed reading section. He is showing slow but steady improvement, and I think we can get his score up just by continued practice with that section. We then did some more algebra review.

PSAT Tutoring review by Benjamin in Chicago, IL
We worked through a practice test in its entirety. Scores are up across the board, with the writing section still being the weakest. We'll probably focus on the writing questions in our next session. At this point, I feel confident about the math scores. Vocabulary questions are improved, especially the questions with multiple blanks. We'll probably need to review a couple more reading passages, just to be safe, but those are also improved. The student's done good work so far.

PSAT Tutoring review by Brianna in Chicago, IL
The student and I focused most of our time on vocabulary today. We went over the first page of words we've defined so far, and I asked him to define them without looking them up. For the ones he was unable to define, we made flash cards. He did great on this week's reading test and is improving in writing as well. He has 15 new words to define for homework, and 20 flashcards to review.

PSAT Tutoring review by Denise in Chicago, IL
Today we reviewed two new grammar checklists for the writing portion of the exam, worked through some sample problems making use of these concepts, worked through a reading section and completed a review of geometry concepts. The student seems to be grasping the material well and is able to apply concepts from earlier sessions in approaching new problems.

PSAT Tutoring review by Courtney in Chicago, IL
In our session we did a review of all the sections and their individual strategies. The student excels in the math section; she really understands the material and is often quick with an explanation of why a certain method is better than another. Although she sometimes makes errors, she is quick to correct them when they are pointed out. We worked on strategies to separate the questions out so she could focus on one part of the section at a time and not have to hold so much information in her head at once. I also highlighted with her the importance of looking at context for answers. The student also did well in the writing, but favored grammar/usage questions over rhetoric.

PSAT Tutoring review by Melinda in Chicago, IL
The student and I spent half of our session on math. He has gotten much better with the math section; however, he still struggles to set up problems. Also because he hasn't taken geometry, he struggles sometimes with geometry questions. Then we worked on some writing questions. He still has difficulty identifying sentence errors, although he has improved. For future sessions, I recommend a more thorough grammar review to help him. We ended with reading.
