How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?

If you're aiming for higher education after high school, one way to get ready is to decide which field of study you want to go into and identify colleges that offer the best selection of courses for that major. Another is to take the SAT or ACT, but you might also want to take the PSAT first. The PSAT, or "preliminary" SAT, could give you a very good idea of how well you could score on the SAT later. Maybe you're already planning to take the PSAT. Do you feel you're ready, or are there some things you wish you understood better? If certain parts of PSAT practice still aren't making sense, you might need some extra guidance from a tutor. We can make that happen. The Varsity Tutors educational directors can identify a private PSAT tutor in San Marcos, TX, who will address all of your PSAT concerns.

The chance to see how well you could do on the SAT is reason enough to take the PSAT. But did you also know that if you score high enough, universities may take notice and award you scholarships and more financial aid well before you graduate from high school? You might be able to pay for a few semesters of college before you even start! The tutor you work with will know the PSAT format very well, and could help you clear up any problems you're having in its two sections. An expert PSAT tutor in San Marcos could help you pursue your maximum potential.

During this session the student and I worked exclusively on timing. I had her write an essay with an alarm going off every seven minutes to signal when she would be starting the next paragraph. During the remainder of the session I gave her a formula for her introduction paragraphs and we practiced two additional timed introduction paragraphs. She was able to write those paragraphs in just six minutes, a huge improvement. At the next session we will be working on timing the conclusion paragraphs.

With the student, I covered how to setup up proportions in order to solve for variables, a review of the FOIL method and basic algebra, properties and angles of triangles and circles, as well as problems that involve converting words to algebraic equations in order to solve word problems. She has completed a small part of the math tests provided for her, but I recommended that she reads the math notes sections of her SAT prep books for at least 30 minutes a day, and that she should complete 1 entire SAT practice test before the next time we meet.

The student did fairly well on her practice ACT, boosting her composite score two points. Her Math score was unusually low, however, so we spent a considerable amount of time going over the errors there to help her avoid them the next time.
