How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?
Every fall brings a new school year and an opportunity for your student to take the PSAT. If your student is in 8th or 9th grade, this opportunity presents itself in the spring as well, in the form of the PSAT 8 or PSAT 9. For 10th and 11th graders, the PSAT NMSQT doubles as a practice exam for the SAT and a National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT). The PSAT provides the opportunity for students to qualify for a college scholarship should they perform well on the exam. Due to this added incentive, it is of the utmost importance that your child be as prepared as possible for this exam. This may mean calling in the help of a private tutor. Varsity Tutors can assist you in your search for an experienced and dedicated PSAT tutor in San Francisco, California. Your child's tutor can be flexible to your schedule, working with your student online or in person at a place and time determined by you.
San Francisco PSAT tutors provide benefits that cannot be found in study groups, test prep courses, or test prep books. A private tutor can work with your child one-on-one to help them determine where they need to spend the majority of their study time. Once that has been determined, your child and their tutor can then work together to design a custom-made study plan, tailored just for your student's studying needs. They can choose to go over each section of the exam (evidence-based reading, writing, and math) or just one or two of the sections. Their tutor can also go over practice exams with your student to help clarify any answers they got incorrect. This can be particularly helpful for the writing section. While practice exams and books may have an answer key, an in-depth explanation of the concepts missed can help. Likewise, their tutor can provide valuable essay-writing methods and test-taking techniques.
