How can a tutor help you master the SAT?
The SAT is a common standardized test colleges use to determine a student's aptitude for admission to their school. The exam consists of two sections: evidence-based reading and writing and math, along with an optional essay. The exam lasts for three hours, with an additional 50 minutes for the essay. This can be a very intense test, and many students find it stressful to prepare for the exam on their own. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the SAT, working with a tutor may be a great solution. Varsity Tutors' educational directors can help you find a San Francisco, California, SAT tutor who can complete SAT test prep with you.
If you are hoping to score well on the SAT, you'll have to have a wide breadth of knowledge in many different subjects. The SAT tests for critical reading and mathematics skills, and many students may excel at one and struggle in another. If you are weak in one area, it can bring down your score on the overall test, even if you're particularly strong on the other. When you work with a personal tutor, you can focus on the area where are weakest and prepare for the exam in a way that is effective for you. Your tutor can pinpoint the areas that are the most difficult for you and drill these areas. They can do more than just give you worksheets, though. They can work with you to make sure you understand the concepts behind the problems you struggle with so that future questions can be easier for you. While the goal is test prep, SAT tutoring in San Francisco may reteach you concepts you've always struggled with.
