When it comes to standardized tests, the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is probably the most important one for high schoolers. Colleges and universities weigh a lot of factors when making their decision to accept or decline an application. They will look over your grades, your extracurricular activities, your interview, and the SAT. Getting a good score on it will definitely enhance your chances of getting into your first choice school. Studying for it can be pretty hard, but there's help readily available for you. Varsity Tutors will find you an expert tutor in San Mateo, California, who can create engaging sessions so you enjoy preparing for the SAT.

The SAT takes three hours and there are an extra 50 minutes if you decide to write the optional essay. You could take it in your junior year of high school though there are options to take it your senior year. There are two sections to it. The first is designed to test your mathematical skills. The second section tests your reading comprehension and writing skills. Your test will be scored, and then those scores will be assigned certain percentiles. Landing in the higher percentiles is definitely more favorable since it means you did much better than many other people who took the test. Call our educational directors to find you an expert SAT tutor in San Mateo to try to help you get ready on test day.

Studying for the test can seem a bit overwhelming at first. Bookstores have rows and rows of test prep books and picking one of them is tough. Your school might have test prep sessions on weekends and after school. That could help some people but group study is like classroom study in that it's very easy to fall behind. Your tutor, on the other hand, will be an expert on the SAT. They may be able to zero in on what parts of the test you will do well on and what areas you need help with. Your tutor will then patiently guide you through those problem sections and help you understand them. If you're preparing for the SAT, let our educational directors connect you with a tutor in San Mateo.

Finding a meeting place for tutoring is no problem. Your tutor will meet you any place you want, like a coffee shop, a diner, the library, or even your own house. They can meet you anytime, too.
