How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?

The Preliminary SAT, or PSAT, is administered to students in the 10th and 11th grades. The test is offered in the fall on an annual basis and may allow your child to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship. In 2015, multiple types of the test were developed: PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 8/9. Each has its purpose and covers two sections in evidence-based reading and writing and math. The test is not utilized for college admissions, instead serving as a first look at a student's potential. It is essentially a practice test to allow you and your child to see how they would score on the SAT. While it is not a high-stakes exam, there are many advantages it may offer, from early college scholarships to corporation funding for schooling. Prepare your child for the test appropriately with an PSAT tutor in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

PSAT Tutoring review by Courtney in Minneapolis, MN
In our session today we continued our work in all three sections of the exam. The student continues to prove that reading is her strongest area, rarely missing questions and quickly understanding why any incorrect answers are not the best choices. Her greatest challenge is math, but I think she is finally coming into her own understanding of how she can approach problems. She has also been doing well in the writing and we are working on using simple strategies to minimize any usage errors.

PSAT Tutoring review by Nick in Minneapolis, MN
Today we reviewed the student's final practice test. We tried to identify any remaining weaknesses and create a list of important tips to review and remember going into the test. Overall though, his skills are very strong at this point, with his scores in each section consistently 90th percentile or above as compared to last year's test takers.

PSAT Tutoring review by Molly in Minneapolis, MN
I'd given the student some practice tests to try in between sessions, so we spent most of this session going over his work on those. I can see a lot of improvement in the student. Not only is he getting a higher percentage of problems right, but he's understanding his errors and how to correct them. After we went over his responses, we spent some time going over the math sections in more detail. We'll be working more on strategies for math next session.

PSAT Tutoring review by Maxwell in Minneapolis, MN
Although when super-scored on the SAT the student's scores would put him in the running for the school of his choice, his scores are inconsistent. I think that he is better suited to the ACT. He did, however, perform very highly at several points throughout his sessions. I think he has the potential to do very well on the test. I think creating a relaxed environment the day or two before may improve his scores.

PSAT Tutoring review by Diana in Minneapolis, MN
The student and I started discussing grammar sections from her homework and went over the questions that she had missed on her practice. From that, we were able to discover patterns in the missed questions and found that there were only a few skills that she needed to build. One of the concepts we isolated was dangling modifiers, which we were able to go over in more detail. We then moved to critical reading practice and worked with opinion articles to deconstruct arguments and learn vocabulary from context. With this practice, we also discussed her learning style and brainstormed strategies that could help her read faster and with more retention. She agreed that she would try some strategies that we thought of, which we will discuss at the next session.

PSAT Tutoring review by Ami in Minneapolis, MN
This was our first session, so we spent a little time talking about her previous experiences with the PSAT. She took it last year as a sophomore, as well as a practice one a few weeks ago. She said that she had a little trouble with the math section, and often ran out of time before she was able to answer all of the questions. She also said that sometimes with the longer critical reading passages, she "zones out" and has a hard time focusing. Therefore, we worked through a practice section for critical reading and math.
