Mr. D. was able to keep my daughter engaged and interested the entire session. He made her feel confident with reading. She stated that he was the "best teacher in the world". She gave him two thumbs up and a heart. I'm very pleased with my investment towards my child's education using Varsity Tutors.

We've helped thousands of learners of all ages improve their reading and English skills including teaching English as a second language.

Do they have an IEP or 504 plan? (We have tutors that specialize in learning differences)

The tutor that was paired with my daughter was perfect and fits Bella's needs. Bella struggles with attention and has been on a 504 plan for years. The tools used, the interaction and flexibility are priceless. I was hesitant at first but now I'd do it again and I recommend Varsity Tutors!!

How can a PSAT Critical Reading tutor help you?

Taking the PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) can open up numerous opportunities for a student's future. Students who earn exceptional scores are able to begin the process of being named National Merit Scholars. This prestigious honor can bolster college applications and is often accompanied by offers of significant merit-based financial aid. National Merit Scholarship qualification aside, any student who takes the PSAT gains the experience of sitting for an exam modeled after the SAT. This experience can give a student an edge when it comes to studying for the SAT itself, as the PSAT score report can help identify one's weakest academic areas and pinpoint any testing anxieties or difficulties which will need to be addressed before taking the actual SAT.

Students who find themselves struggling with content tested in the PSAT Critical Reading section will need to review this material in a structured and focused way. This can present quite a challenge, as most high school English classes typically don't spend a significant portion of time on preparing students for the PSAT because it is seen as an optional exam. Knowing exactly what material to focus on while studying can be overwhelming. Students may have mastered sentence completion problems, but may find passage-based questions difficult. What is the best way to focus one's studies on improving these specific areas? Varsity Tutors can help students connect with personal PSAT Critical Reading tutoring to prepare for test day.

Online PSAT Critical Reading Tutoring review by Alexander
Today we worked on more PSAT-type Critical Reading practice. We reviewed the passage from last week and worked on two more (rather lengthy) passages that I had assigned as homework. The student did quite well with the passages, and we had a few incorrect answers to work through. His conceptual understanding seems to be pretty good, especially for a rising 9th grader! He knows some of the Critical Reading passage tips and tricks. We talked about how to deal with passages whose questions end with "except"; those questions can have some rather irritating logical consequences that require some sort of "backwards" thinking, so we'll continue working on those. I left him with some SAT grammar practice, and soon we'll begin discussing (and writing about) "1984" to encourage both grammar and critical thinking practice. Great session!

The student and I worked through a PSAT Reading section together. He seems to be improving, especially in vocabulary. He seems to be finding it easier to understand the questions.

The student and I started by working with the critical reading section of the assessment and then moved on to Writing. We worked on techniques to move through questions efficiently and tackle unfamiliar vocabulary words. On the writing section, we worked on finding red flags in grammar questions.

Reviewed vocabulary words covered by previous tutor; created flashcards for additional vocabulary words; took 25-minute critical reading practice test. The student seems to have a pretty strong grasp of the vocabulary we covered.

Online PSAT Critical Reading Tutoring review by Robert
We covered the assessment reading test. Reviewed overall strategies for the other assessment test, seven tips for organizing and categorizing questions, critical reading strategies, and he got some practice. I assigned homework of an hour a day and required that he start taking practice simulated tests.

Online PSAT Critical Reading Tutoring review by Lorna
In my first session with the student today, we first discussed the breakdown of the PSAT vs. SAT, what PSAT scores mean, why he wants to do well/why it isn't as important for colleges in comparison to the SAT, and what kind of questions/format he can expect to see. The student was quiet, but started talking more once we started doing practice questions together. He should fit some type of vocabulary studying (on a phone app, website game, flashcards etc.) with his other studying. We will also need to spend at least a session reviewing Grammar and the types of questions in the Writing section.
