How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?

If your student is preparing to take any of the versions of the PSAT, you may want to consider a private tutor to help them prepare. The PSAT 8, PSAT 9, and PSAT 10 are used as a baseline of student progress, while the PSAT NMSQT is used both as a practice for the SAT and as a National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test. This means that if your child scores well on the PSAT NMSQT, they may be eligible for a college scholarship. Varsity Tutors can help you find your student an experienced PSAT tutor in Washington, D.C. Your child can meet with their tutor to work at a time and place that you choose - even online.

A private Washington, D.C., PSAT tutor can work with your child in a one-on-one environment. This means that, unlike in a large classroom setting, your child's learning needs are at the forefront of each tutoring session. The tutor may give your child a practice exam to determine the areas they need to cover the most. They may decide to go over each section (math and evidence-based reading and writing) or just one section. Your child can also take practice exams to help them prepare. After they have completed an exam, their tutor can go over any missed questions with them and help clarify the concepts being covered by the question. This can help them avoid similar mistakes on the day of the actual test. Going over the writing section with their tutor can be especially helpful for your child, as this section does not have a simple answer key in the practice exams. Your child's tutor can teach them useful essay-writing methods and test-taking strategies to help them with the essay and each section of the exam.

Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

PSAT Tutoring review by Trey in Washington DC
We reviewed incorrect answers from the Critical Reading and Math sections in the practice test. The student outlined an essay for a prompt. We reviewed the first column of vocabulary. We then went through the Writing Skills section and she is going to finish at least one reading and math section, and study two more columns of vocabulary. Her scores on reading and math are strong. She's making some improvement and mastering topics we've covered.

PSAT Tutoring review by Alex in Washington DC
Today we drilled for the writing section, discussing misplaced modifiers, tense, and proper use of semi-colons for the writing section. He also completed a vocabulary quiz in preparation for the sentence completion portion of the Critical Reading section as well as some math problems for extra practice. I left the remaining sections of a practice test for homework. No concerns to report.

PSAT Tutoring review by Tara in Washington DC
The student and I focused on the math portions of the PSAT. For homework he completed and graded Section 2. Upon reviewing his answers, it was clear he excels in math. The student completed Section 4. He took his time and scored higher. We will continue to review geometry and a few specific types of problems over the coming weeks. For homework, he will try a diagnostic writing portion of the PSAT and will study prefixes and suffixes to assist him in vocabulary.

We reviewed the diagnostic that was assigned for homework and went over a couple of themes that are repeated throughout the PSAT in this section, certain key kinds of questions to look out for. We then did a 30 question Math diagnostic to work primarily on word problems and to build up speed.

PSAT Tutoring review by Andrew in Washington DC
Today, the student and I went over a practice SAT. The results were mixed with the student doing well on one math and one reading section while doing poorly on the other math and reading section. He took the test over several days which meant his performance varied by day. In reviewing his errors, he was quick to get the correct answer demonstrating that his score should have been higher. We discussed time management strategies, including when and how to skip questions and eliminating wrong answer choices. Elijah struggled most with long reading sections which we will focus on during our next meeting. Elijah understands the content. His area for growth is in understanding and answering questions in a timely manner.
