How can a tutor help you master the SAT?

Applying for colleges can be a very exciting time, but along with this may also come the SAT. Preparing for the SAT can be very stressful and daunting, to say the least, but you don't have to go at it alone; a private tutor can help you. Varsity Tutors can assist in your search for a professional SAT tutor in Washington, D.C., with whom you can work at a time and place that works best for your schedule. Your tutor can even meet with you online.

Private Washington, D.C., SAT tutors can provide you with the one-on-one attention that you would not receive in a study group or test prep course. Together, you and your tutor can come up with a personalized study plan just for you. You may decide that you need to cover every section of the exam in great detail, or alternatively, maybe you only need to go over a few in detail and can briefly review the rest of the sections with your tutor. For example, you may take a practice exam with your tutor and discover that you excel at the evidence-based reading and essay sections, but you need some additional help with the math section and a refresher on some of the concepts covered in the writing and language section. Because you are the only pupil meeting with your tutor during your session, whatever your studying needs may be, your tutor can help. You can pick and choose the topics you cover and to what extent, which is not something you can do in a large study group or test prep course.

Session Summaries by SAT Tutors

SAT Tutoring review by Shannon in Washington DC
The student wrote a sample essay, and we honed in on the challenge of being sure you're answering the question accurately. (Harder than it sounds--SAT prompts are notoriously broad and philosophical, and breaking them down is part of the pre-writing process.) We then worked through a reading section. Her accuracy was pretty high on the reading comprehension. She should always time herself in addition to having someone else timing her. She should also remember to take her own watch to the SAT so she can pace herself accordingly.

SAT Tutoring review by Bryan in Washington DC
The student took the incredible initiative to sit down and do Practice Test #1. That is fantastic! And, she did very well on it. We went over the questions on which she had the most trouble, and I think that she understands most of where she got tripped up. She also wrote an practice essay from the prompt in the book, which was excellent. She is a very good writer, stylistically and grammatically. I gave her a couple tips on how to improve, but generally, I think she will do very well in her essays. She says that she always has plenty of time on each section, so I would like to focus on some strategies to double-check her work, and general strategies to be more deliberate and thorough with each question.

SAT Tutoring review by Michael in Washington DC
We reviewed the student's SAT homework. She did extremely well on the math homework, getting 16/20 questions correct. She had similar success in the reading passages, although she doesn't yet have enough vocabulary words to answer the sentence completions. I discussed Latin roots and related applicable words to Spanish, which she is currently studying in high school. I reviewed the concepts that gave her the most trouble like subject-verb agreement, appropriate possessive pronouns, and idioms.

SAT Tutoring review by Steven in Washington DC
We spent the first hour going over the math section. We focused on how to approach grid in questions; both how to solve them and how to fill them out on the answer sheet. We then moved onto the essay section. I had the student think up a thesis statement based on a sample prompt. We also looked over the scoring guides for the essay and read over some sample essays. Finally I had the student practice sentence completion. He is very focused and attentive but we still need to do a lot of work to get him ready for the SAT.

SAT Tutoring review by Sandy in Washington DC
Today I went over the student's essay with her. We discussed in depth how to structure an essay for the SAT, and she outlined a couple of essays. We then went over vocabulary words we went over in the last session and we learned some new ones. We looked at some verbal questions she had done in the last session and we did them again - this time she knew how to do them because she had the necessary vocabulary.

SAT Tutoring review by Sujana in Washington DC
The student and I revised her two practice essays. Our focus is still on simplifying syntax and better developing the opposing point of view. However, she has already begun to simplify her syntax. She is also doing a better job of not using passive voice. Overall these essays were the best she has written so far! In terms of Math, we spent the rest of our session working through problems in the SAT math workbook that she had previously gotten wrong. I made a list of problems that she was still struggling with so that she could attempt them again in a couple of weeks to make sure she still remembered how to do them.
