How can tutoring help you succeed on the SAT Subject Test in Mathematics Level 2?
The SAT Subject Test in Mathematics Level 2 covers topics beyond the scope of basic algebra, branching into applications of trigonometry and pre-calculus. Where the Level 1 exam focuses more on plane geometry, the Level 2 test covers more three-dimensional geometry and coordinate geometry applications. While the increased difficulty of the Level 2 exam may make a high score more appealing to colleges, simply taking classes in pre-calculus is not enough to prepare adequately.
To perform well on the SAT Subject Test in Mathematics Level 2, it is often necessary to study both the material content presented and the particular question styles and methods of presentation common to the exam structure. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with private tutoring in locations throughout the United States.
We recognize that each test taker brings with him or her a different experience with math coursework, and will have different concerns and difficulties when dealing with test material. Math classes rarely address the SAT Subject Tests directly, study groups can be unfocused, and online and printed resources are few and far between. Working with a personal instructor can help your preparation stay focused on the material that you need to cover most, while introducing strategies for tackling the different question types and formats on test day.
When studying for a test with this type of complexity, it can be hard to identify exactly where you should begin. You may have an understanding of different ways to study, but this doesn't necessarily mean that you understand which method or methods are the most effective for you personally. A private tutor can help in this capacity because the individualized nature of your study sessions can provide them with enough information to determine where exactly your strengths and weaknesses lie. They can also identify what your learning style is by talking with you and observing you work. Once they have this information, they can help you understanding how exactly you should be studying. They can also alter the way they teach to fit with your learning style. This will allow them to come up with a plan to mitigate your weaknesses and maximize your strengths.
By closely working with you, your tutor can develop a customized learning approach to cover these topics in depth. Whether you are seeking a comprehensive review of hyperbolic functions or need to know when it is best to use your calculator, a personal tutor can share experiences and study tips to help you perform to your potential on the exam.
One area you may struggle with while taking the test is managing your time effectively. Even though you may know the material, if you fail to manage your time, you will likely not have enough time to answer all of the questions. A skilled and experienced tutor can help you develop time management skills, which will ensure that you are not wasting time on the test.
