How can a tutor help you master the SAT?

Varsity Tutors' experienced educational directors will assist you in connecting with a professional tutor in Scottsdale who could help your child prep for the SAT. The SAT is a crucial point in your child's academic career, as your child's score affects their college application process and their financial aid opportunities. The most competitive schools heavily consider SAT scores when looking at applications. The test itself is only a few hours, making it the fastest way your child can dramatically raise their academic standing before college applications. Considering the SAT's importance, it makes sense to have your child prepare with a qualified tutor, as it gives them a big advantage over their fellow test takers. There's no substitute for the personal attention a tutor provides. When your child achieves a high score on the SAT, they may be able to make it into their school of choice, and they will have more financial aid options available to cover some or all of their college costs.

Personalized SAT instruction in Scottsdale, AZ, will allow your child to develop a rapport with their tutor to facilitate the learning process. First, the tutor will assess your child's skills in the subjects on the SAT, which are math and evidence-based reading and writing, looking in particular for any weak points. Using that information, the tutor can develop a personalized study plan designed to build your child's knowledge in each subject and potentially eliminate any weaknesses. In every tutoring session, your child gets immediate feedback, keeping them on track to potentially improve on the SAT.

Session Summaries by SAT Tutors

Scottsdale, AZ SAT tutoring
The student and I went over the practice SAT that she took last time. She did a great job on the grammar and reading. We discussed strategies for maximizing her reading score and I gave her advice about vocab. We also went over a few important grammar rules. She did not do as well on the math and we will continue working on it. Overall she is doing very well.

We went through 2 math sections and 1 Reading section of the diagnostic test. She also memorized 35 more vocab words. The Reading section is definitely what we will focus on for the next few sessions and then we will start the Writing section. She is doing a great job learning vocab quickly.

We went through the entirety of a math section and two writing sections, as well as a vocab portion. The student understood all of the concepts, and only erred in misreading a few questions. He understood the process of the more difficult questions and only needed gentle guidance to continue with them. We also went over reading strategy; with practice, he will be well-equipped to identify direct support for these questions. I recommended that he do at least one section from each the math, writing, and reading sections from the blue SAT guide.

The student was most comfortable with the math section and only needed assistance on the last few questions. He breezed through the easy sentence completions. The British lit reading passage proved challenging for him, but when I simplified the text to modern day English, he found the questions quite simple. I think he has made progress in the writing section and is applying the key concepts extremely well to the sentence revision questions. I asked him to work on practice test 2 independently so we could review it together in our next session.

The student and I spent this session working through difficult selections of math and critical reading. She was focused and did a great job working through even the most complicated problems. She quickly identified plug-in type problems, and logically approached every problem. The critical reading section we worked through included a difficult dual passage. She stayed focus and worked through the section. I talked her through the questions she was unsure about.

The student and I worked through four SAT reading comprehension passages and approximately 30 SAT grammar questions. On the reading section, he struggled more with the comparative social science and fictional prose passages, but did well on humanities and natural science. We focused on process of elimination, splitting answer choices, and evaluating key words to reach the correct answer on questions related to author's tone, purpose, arguments, and evidence. On the grammar section, we focused on comma placement, pronoun agreement, and prepositional phrases. Overall, I felt this was a good initial session.
