How can a tutor help you master the SAT?
Are you a high school student who is interested in receiving a college education? If so, you will more than likely need to take a standardized test as part of your entrance process. While there are two widely used aptitude tests to choose between, the SAT is the most commonly used score on the East and West Coasts. If you are intending to apply to a university in these coastal regions, it will likely be beneficial for you to take this standardized test.
High school upperclassmen face a great deal of stress when it comes to college applications, and the additional demands of preparing for the SAT is a factor that does not exactly ease that stress. Fortunately, Varsity Tutors is here to fix that problem by helping to connect you with a one-on-one SAT tutor who can give you the instruction, guidance, and resources needed to prepare for test day.
One thing to keep in mind is that taking standardized tests well can often be seen as a skill in itself. Because of this, some students require a little more practice to succeed at taking the SAT, regardless of their proficiency in various subjects.

By working under the guidance of a dedicated and experienced SAT tutor, you can establish a personalized study plan that is specifically designed with your abilities in mind.
A talented SAT tutor can work closely with you to help you properly prepare for the SAT. The new SAT is divided into three parts: Mathematics, Evidence-Based Reading, and Writing. In addition, there is an optional essay component. You are given a total of 65 minutes to complete the Reading section and an additional 35 minutes to complete the Language and Writing section. The SAT Math section is 80 minutes long, and you are allowed to use a calculator for while completing that portion of the test. The 50-minute optional essay section of the SAT tests your ability to construct a critical argument.

The best way to prepare for your lessons is to work under the guidance of an experienced SAT tutor.
