How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?

Most colleges and universities require students to submit their SAT score with their application. The score a student receives on the SAT might significantly impact their chances of getting accepted into their top schools. That is why it's crucial that students prepare in advance for the test. One of a great ways to prepare for the SAT is to take the Preliminary SAT (PSAT). The PSAT is structured similarly to the SAT, giving students a great opportunity to see the test layout and the type of questions they'll have to answer on the actual SAT. Just because the PSAT is a preliminary exam doesn't mean students shouldn't study for the test. Studying for the PSAT can give students an idea of how much preparation they'll have to put into SAT. Fortunately, students don't have to study alone for the PSAT. If you're getting ready to take the test, consider connecting with a personal PSAT tutor. Call Varsity Tutors today to try to help you find an expert PSAT tutor in Riverside, CA, to try to help increase your success on test day.

Session Summaries by PSAT Tutors

Riverside, CA PSAT tutoring
Today the student continued to work on her essays. Her examples continue to be well-suited to the prompt, which is great--not only is her writing getting better, but her ability to think critically to argue a point is notably improved. Today I introduced her to the concept of presenting a counterargument in her introduction. She understands the purpose of it but needs some help working this in successfully. We also spent about 20 minutes on improving sentences, and she did really great--I think she only missed two. I plan on moving on with her to focus on the other two sections, but will probably continue to do an essay a week to maintain her skills and work on small improvements.

Today's session was devoted to completing our review of the math section. We finished advanced algebra and geometry before moving on to a guided survey of multiple-choice math, followed by a timed practice without support. With prompting, the student was able to recognize and solve each problem during our guided work.

The session started with a quick quiz of the words the student listed and looked up for homework. She did well, as she is starting to add these words to her personal knowledge base. Next, she got more practice by completing Section 2 of Practice Test 4 in the blue test booklet. While she worked, I found some vocabulary lists online and we later worked on ways to add these words to her personal vocabulary. Next, we practiced a synonym exercise, then we chose 10 words from the list, and she wrote as many synonyms as she could for each. For next time, I will create a worksheet using these ten words. We closed with another synonym exercise, in which she did very well.

I had the student write two practice essays beforehand. The language level was a definite improvement, as were the introductions. We discussed effective ways of integrating examples to make sure they support the thesis, and how to write a good conclusion. After that, we discussed three readings I provided. I had asked her to look carefully at facts and assumptions and then I posed questions about that, and reread a few paragraphs closely. Finally, I gave her some exercises for next time. We will probably meet on Friday and agreed to be in touch by Thursday morning to confirm.

The student and I reviewed the results from the SAT she took at her school in September. She scored in the 90th percentile or above in all sections but still has lower scores than she's been getting when we practice together.

We covered basic structure, scoring, and strategy for the new PSAT, strategy for passage-based reading (and common wrong answer types like bait & switch or not mentioned but sounds good), and some of the data analysis packet. I asked the three students to do two short passages and two long passages for next time (with Student M the only one being given a time constraint).
