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).

Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

PSAT Tutoring review by Courtney in Phoenix, AZ
Because this is our last session before the PSAT, we went through and talked about strategies for all sections while going through incorrect answers from the practice test the girls took last session. The first student has shown tremendous improvement in the math section, and continues to do exceptionally well in the reading section. The second student maintains her skill in math and has improved in reading. Both of the girls do well in writing when they take their time on the more nuanced questions. Overall, I think they are very well prepared for the PSAT and I expect they will do very well.

PSAT Tutoring review by Chloe in Phoenix, AZ
My last session with the student! Again we spent all of our time on math. We talked about figuring things out in her head, like a general range she would expect the answer to be in so she can check against her calculator. I hope she does well!

PSAT Tutoring review by Marc in Phoenix, AZ
Our last session before she takes the PSAT! We recapped many things from each section. In math, we worked extensively with circumscribed figures, circles, scalar comparisons, and 30-60-90/45-45-90 calculations. In writing, we refreshed on "his/her" difficulties, compound subject/verb agreement, and preposition work. In critical reading, we worked at important time-management strategies and how to effectively handle which sections should get the most time and energy devoted to them. Since this was a light session (I didn't want to tax her the night before her PSAT), we went through a Q&A, where she could ask me any leftover questions she might have regarding ANY section, the test itself, how to prepare for it in the morning, etc. She should be very well-prepared for her test tomorrow! With enough rest and focus, she should be able to score a 180+ tomorrow easily!

PSAT Tutoring review by Jack in Phoenix, AZ
This was our last session before the student took the actual PSAT test so we went over several areas where he needed refreshing, including probability, functions, and fractions. For the last part, we went over his homework which was solving word problems. We worked on a strategy to break them down and make them easier to solve.

PSAT Tutoring review by Kendra in Phoenix, AZ
Today, we reviewed a practice writing skills sections he had taken prior to our session. He then took another 30 minute writing test and we graded it. Then we reviewed the strategies for approaching the improving paragraphs questions, and worked through a single improving paragraph segment together. Finally, we reviewed a list of common diction errors and he completed a drill focusing on diction errors. We will meet for a final, one-hour session, tomorrow night in preparation for his test on Saturday.

PSAT Tutoring review by Michael in Phoenix, AZ
We worked through a lot of math problems for the PSAT. She is showing marked improvement in the math portion, and is very strong on the other two subject areas. This was our last session before the PSAT.
