How can PSAT Writing Skills tutoring help you?

If your child has set their sights on becoming a National Merit Scholar, they will need to earn excellent scores on the PSAT, as this exam is also the NMSQT - the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Regardless of how your student scores, this free exam provides an opportunity to take an exam that mimics the real SAT, complete with proctors, time limits, and test-day anxiety. The way your child scores on the PSAT can thus provide them with an analysis of their current abilities in the three subjects that the SAT tests, which includes the Critical Reading section, the Mathematics section, and the Writing section.

Students who give stellar performances on the PSAT can also be nominated as National Merit Scholars, an honor that is often accompanied by merit-based financial aid during the college application process. If your child is ready to reach for this goal, but they know that their writing and editing abilities could use some support, Varsity Tutors can help by assisting you in connecting with a highly skilled and experienced private tutor.

Online PSAT Writing Skills Tutoring review by Ian
Reviewed the Correcting Sentence Errors and Improving Sentences portions of the Critical Reading section. Covered basic grammar mechanics and idiomatic use of English, as well as multiple-choice strategies relevant to the PSAT/SAT. Student is a quick study, and clearly very motivated (took notes on unfamiliar material). Will continue with the verbal section next session.

Online PSAT Writing Skills Tutoring review by Hannah
The student and I began by discussing her questions from the practice test sections she took during the week. Then we moved onto to work through a writing practice section together, and ended by working through a math section. The student is noticeably improving and applying techniques we have worked on to her practice tests.

Online PSAT Writing Skills Tutoring review by Sara
Today we continued with PSAT studying. We did a bit of a math section and determined that he could answer all of them so we moved on. We worked most on grammar and I taught him some easy tricks that I learned from SAT prep and he seems to feel better about his English skills. I think he just needed a little more self-confidence.

Online PSAT Writing Skills Tutoring review by Kendra
We focused on the Writing section during today's session. I started by reviewing the writing section on a practice test the student had completed prior to our session. We then worked through some tips and strategies for Improving Sentences questions, Identifying Sentence Errors questions, and Improving Paragraphs questions, looking at examples of the application of each strategy. Then we reviewed the list of common grammar and usage errors often used by the test. Finally, we went over the Writing section of a practice test, working through each question and the answer choices together. I asked him to review a list of common diction errors as well as the list of grammar errors and complete another Writing section test before our next session.

Online PSAT Writing Skills Tutoring review by Patrick
Reviewed last week's work on writing the PSAT essay and how to break down the 25-minute time block accordingly. Encouraged client to spend 10 minutes planning essay (choosing stance on prompt, coming up with arguments for/against, and coming up with good examples from literature/history/current events/personal experiences). We reviewed an example prompt from the student's test prep book and came up with arguments for/against together. I reminded student to take a definite, clear stance on the prompt. We also reviewed essays that scored a 6 (highest score) and a 4, and we read the graders' rationale for each score. We also reviewed part of the sentence revision portion of the grammar review. We reviewed 4 of the 16 different types of errors that this section reviews. Lastly, we completed 10 sample sentence completion questions and we reviewed the ones he got wrong (5 out of 10) and why, cross-referencing aforementioned types of errors.
