Hiring a tutor for the PSAT can do more than just meet your student’s score requirements. They can help you prepare the scores you need based on the school you want to apply for and get in one day. One-on-one tutors can take the time to make a list of schools you want to apply to and review with you the average PSAT score for those schools. This way you can practice trying to get the grade that you need so that when it is time to take the actual thing you are more than prepared. There are four sections on this exam which include reading, writing & language, and math. Each one of these presents their own set of issues to each individual student.
This is why enrolling in a group PSAT tutoring session is not viable for this type of test. There are several students in a class with a single teacher who is trying to meet all of their needs. It is simply impossible for them to be able to achieve this goal and it is unrealistic to believe that your child is going to get what they need. This is not what we offer at HeyTutor, instead, we have one-on-one PSAT tutors who are trained professionals. These are high-quality tutors who are going to work with your student and get the best out of them. For this to happen, our tutors take several things into account before even starting to teach your child. Most tutors just show up and start teaching using the same methods for your child that they do for every other one. That is not the HeyTutor experience whatsoever. Although our tutors have a minimum of five years under their belt and have dealt with students who have similar problems they are not using the same one size fits all approach.
Initially, your child will take a practice PSAT exam and the tutor will grade it to figure out any issues. The tutor will also ask your child what they felt comfortable with and what they did not. As you know, the PSAT is a multiple choice test so your student could have guessed on some questions and just got lucky. This is not going to cut it on the real thing. But by admitting this your child will be opening up a clear line of communication between themselves and the tutor. After this is taken into account, the tutor will have an understanding of the style of learning that best suits your child. Then they will be able to create a lesson plan that is made specifically for your child. When your child is able to get a personalized lesson plan that is geared toward their success, you will really start to see them start to learn more. They will also receive skills that they will be able to use when they start going to the school of their dreams. They will always have to take exams, so our tutors want to make sure they are set up when they walk on campus.
Since there are a few sections on the test we will be able to pinpoint which are your student’s weakest. Our math tutors are ready to go for your child if they are having any problems with this portion. Math is already a challenging subject and this is exemplified when they have to deal with the implications of this exam. Reading & comprehension tutors will be able to help your child with this aspect of the exam. Although it may be hard to believe, this is one of the categories that most students have issues with after math. It is mainly because of the allotted time limit and students not understanding how to use their time wisely. The PSAT is a great opportunity for your child to see where they fall on the spectrum and maybe even get a scholarship. If they are able to walk away with a scholarship it will make the entire household that much happier.
