Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

PSAT Tutoring review by Sabra in Salt Lake City, UT
The student and I had a good first session. We reviewed this year's changes to the PSAT as she took the "old" PSAT as a sophomore. We then dove into a practice PSAT, starting with the Language/ Writing section. She has good grammar skills and only had to be reminded to read ahead of the underlined portion of the passage because some answers are contingent upon other parts of the sentence. The only punctuation she needed help with was the infamous semicolon and colon. She was concerned that she reads terribly slowly and wouldn't be able to read the passages in the given time, but I secretly timed her while she worked on a passage and her time was fine. She said she is always the last finished on reading tests but does very well with comprehension; I explained that she is probably one of the only students who is truly reading, as opposed to skimming, and that reading takes longer because there is processing involved. And the payoff to actually reading is strong comprehension, which she has. We also worked on some of the Math, and she did great. I wanted to see if doing problems with me watching her would give her anxiety because she said she has test anxiety but she was fine. The student gave me quite a compliment; she said she was surprised at how quickly the time went by and that she had been dreading doing PSAT prep, but that I made it fun. That made my day!

PSAT Tutoring review by Thomas in Salt Lake City, UT
First, I gave the student a quiz on math - the key math sections to have memorized - then a quiz on writing, of key writing concepts to memorize. Then we went over the practice test, going over the reading and writing sections. We went over using context to determine the meaning of a phrase, placing a sentence in different locations in a paragraph using the guess and check method, and went over the difference between more and most. We also went over how to generally give PSAT the benefit of the doubt but sometimes to look for what answer they're probably looking for even though we may doubt the merit of a particular question.

PSAT Tutoring review by Charis in Salt Lake City, UT
The student and I went over the writing practice problems today and he did very well. We went over the main writing mistakes he will encounter on the test, including singular and plural forms of words, subject and predicates, and word tenses. We looked over many other practice problems for writing and as we went along, he found a nice rhythm in the questions and started recognizing patterns. We also reviewed over the questions that he had found for the math subjects. He understands the general math set up and functions and only gets tripped up by a few problems that he hasn't seen before. For homework he is to complete the entire practice test again timed in order to see if he can remember how to work the problems and complete them in the time allotted. Our next session will be our final session.

PSAT Tutoring review by Justin in Salt Lake City, UT
I proctored a PSAT exam for the student. She will be taking the PSAT on Wednesday. We covered the English and math portion of the test. She does well on the math portion of the test and the reading. Of all the portions of the test, she struggles most in the English and writing. She has one final section of the test to take on her own time. Her time management skills are extremely good.

PSAT Tutoring review by Dina in Salt Lake City, UT
The student completed another full practice test, and he only missed 7 out of the 38 questions! After going over all of the problems, he recognized the mistakes he made. He also uses great testing strategies already when making an educated guess on problems he does not know how to solve exactly.

PSAT Tutoring review by Joanna in Salt Lake City, UT
Overall, the student has done excellently, even higher than I expected. We discovered a scoring scale and I determined that she would likely score around 1450-1500 on the actual test, placing her well within range of what I believe the NMS cutoff will be. We reviewed the homework, which consisted mostly of historical literature and papers. She did very well on them, especially as they were among the most challenging questions I could find for her to practice. She only got 2 or so incorrect and seemed to understand the contents of each passage. We moved on to practice math. She did well, getting all questions right. She even got one she was not sure of correct by process of elimination and reasoning. Then we practiced two grammar passages, with her getting 2 wrong (1 I wouldn't count as it was vague). She felt better having practiced that as well. Finally, we practiced a reading section: comparing passages with a graph. She got all the questions right. I went over some last details about the test, including when she would find out about her scores, scholar levels, and the types of scholarships she could get. I told her that her biggest concern should be getting a good night's sleep and eating breakfast as I believe she has absolutely nothing to worry about score-wise.
