Your student doesn't need to go it alone when preparing for the SAT. Varsity Tutors can connect them with a tutor who can meet their learning needs. We can help you find knowledgeable Buffalo SAT tutors who can help them prepare effectively for the exam. Setting them up with SAT tutoring can provide your student with the boost they need to kick their test-taking skills into high gear. Buffalo SAT tutors can offer your student the opportunity to refresh their content knowledge, provide useful strategies to use during the test, and help them improve their study skills for standardized tests in general.

The purpose of the SAT is to help measure your student's level of preparedness for college-level studies as they submit their college applications. Most colleges and universities accept SAT scores during the admissions process because it provides a reliable data set to compare all student applicants. SAT test scores are an important piece of information that admission boards consider when making their decisions. All the more reason to consider investing in private tutoring to help their chances of success on the test.

What kinds of advantages can Buffalo SAT tutoring near me provide for my student?

Perhaps the biggest benefit that working with an SAT tutor can provide is the one-on-one attention from personalized study sessions. They can spend all the time they need on the content most challenging to them, without spending unnecessary time reviewing subjects they've already mastered. Moreover, studying with a private SAT tutor allows your student to build a good rapport and further assurance that they're getting the help they need.

Many students feel more comfortable in the distraction-free setting of their Buffalo SAT tutoring sessions, which allows them to ask questions and take risks without trepidation. Another advantage is that their SAT tutor can get to know your student's unique attributes such as how they learn best, what motivates them, their personal strengths, and areas for growth. In this way, Buffalo SAT tutors can provide customized lessons that cater to your student's specific needs.

How can Buffalo SAT tutoring help my student improve their test-taking skills?

The SAT is a three-hour exam consisting of three required sections and an optional essay. These sections include the Reading test, the Writing and Language test, and the Math test. The Math section is divided into two parts, one that allows the use of a calculator and one that does not. The Math section focuses on algebra, problem-solving, and topics like geometry and trigonometry, among other things.

Most of the questions on the SAT are presented in multiple-choice format. There are some student-response questions in the Math section, and, of course, writing in the essay section. One great way the student's SAT tutor can assist them is by providing examples of the types of questions they'll see on the exam.

SAT tutoring can involve some instruction on how to take a standardized exam. By helping your student become more comfortable with the question format and structure of the exam, their SAT tutor can teach them effective ways to study for future standardized exams, both in college and for any professional licensing exams throughout their career.

Lastly, although the Essay section is considered optional, Buffalo SAT tutoring can help your student determine what college programs they're applying to require it. In the Essay section, they'll be given a passage they must read and explain how the writer constructs their argument, providing evidence from the passage to support it.

The Reading section consists of text passages followed by questions to test student comprehension. The questions measure skills like identifying central themes and ideas, differentiating between fact and opinion, and the ability to make connections between different texts. The Writing and Language section is also comprised of passage-based questions, but this time measuring your student's aptitude for using conventions of English like sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, and so on.

How can Buffalo SAT tutors near me help my student perform to their ability on the exam in time?

As mentioned, Buffalo SAT tutoring consists of more than just reviewing content. Although that can be the majority of what's covered in your student's tutoring sessions, there are other helpful ways that SAT tutors can prepare students for test day.

Standardized tests are different than the tests your student encounters in their high school classes. There is a lot of different content covered all in one day and within specific time limits. This can test your student's stamina in new ways than they're used to, and it may be challenging to answer all the questions with these time constraints.

Buffalo SAT tutors can teach time management skills that can come in handy for your student during the exam. For example, if they have trouble deciding between two different answers that both seem correct, it's to their advantage to make an educated guess rather than leaving it blank, because there's no penalty for wrong answers on the SAT. Their tutor can show them how to determine which answer is most likely correct. Tutors can give your student timed practice sections, or even full tests, to identify any pacing issues your student may have and solve those issues before test day.

Buffalo SAT tutors can teach your student how to read an SAT question so that they understand what the test is asking of them. This may include simple things like making sure they read every word. Overlooking a seemingly small thing like the word "not" in the middle of a question can lead them to choose the total opposite of the correct answer.

How can I fit Buffalo SAT tutoring into my student's schedule?

We know it can be hard to fit another commitment into an already busy schedule. That is why we've made the process easier. You have the option of either online or in-person sessions, and we can find qualified Buffalo SAT tutors who can arrange meetings at a time that works well for you and your family.

When you opt for online sessions, you get the same quality of instruction without the hassle of a commute. Our Live Learning Platform lets you attend sessions from any location with a compatible device and an internet connection, whether that's from home or the Reinstein Memorial Library.

There are several useful features on the platform to enhance your student's learning experience. Video chat provides a real-time connection with the tutor so your student can ask questions for clarification and receive additional approaches to try on especially tough items. Then, there's the virtual whiteboard which allows the tutor to share more examples and graphics to make a point clear.

Perhaps the best feature offered on the Live Learning Platform is that your student can watch previous sessions to review concepts and techniques because every session is recorded.
