How can a tutor help you master the SAT?

High school students around the country have the option to take the SAT, or the Scholastic Aptitude Test, which is a comprehensive exam that is used to assess a student's knowledge and application of multiple subjects. The test's score often has an impact on a school's decision to admit a student. The test has two sections, which consist of math and evidence-based reading and writing. There is an optional essay portion, as well. The length of the SAT is three hours, or 3 hours and 50 minutes if you decide to write the essay. If you feel unprepared and need some assistance in studying for the SAT, Varsity Tutors can help you connect with an experienced tutor to guide you as you prepare. SAT tutoring in Chicago, Illinois, can help you work through your SAT study materials.

Chicago SAT tutors can give you the individualized attention you need to focus on preparing well for the exam. The math section allows you 80 minutes to answer 58 multiple-choice problems. In this section, you will cover application-based problems that require you to know how to write down the steps you take to form an answer. Knowing how to correctly document the process of finding the answer to a problem can be challenging for some students, but with a private tutor, you can learn how to do it in a timely manner, as well as how to check for mistakes. If you struggle more with mathematical principles, your tutor can focus on that with you for as long as you need and be available to answer your questions.

Session Summaries by SAT Tutors

SAT Tutoring review by Adam in Chicago, IL
The student and I went over the writing section today. I showed her all 10 rules that the SAT tests extensively, and worked through several practice problems for each rule. Normally, I would split this up over several days, to give her time to internalize each rule, but we can't with our expedited schedule. Since the Writing section is the least important in the admissions process, we're spending the least amount of time on it.

SAT Tutoring review by Julie in Chicago, IL
The student and I worked on SAT reading comprehension and grammar today. He did a full timed reading section which we went over. His vocab was not great, but reading comp is, overall, probably his strongest SAT subject. I continued to stress outlining as an effective method for paying attention to the reading passage.

SAT Tutoring review by Andrew in Chicago, IL
The student and I met to review what happened in her last session. We reviewed her essays and the homework that I assigned. I then did some work to reassure her that her writing is quite good. I also worked through some English grammar with her but assigned little since I'll see her again in less than 48 hours.

SAT Tutoring review by Emma in Chicago, IL
Today we really dug deep into algebra and geometry--I made a couple custom worksheets targeting some areas that he had been having problems with in our previous sessions. We then reviewed the questions he missed on previous homework. As expected, the student is doing well on the critical reading and writing sections, though with a little more practice, I believe he could aim for a perfect or near perfect score on either of those sections. The next time we meet will be our last meeting, so I will prepare some math reviews and worksheets as well as general test day tips for the student to use on his own.

SAT Tutoring review by Courtney in Chicago, IL
The student and I continued our practice and strategy discussions. He has yet to take a full length, timed practice test, which I think will be very valuable, but he is making good progress in applying strategies for difficult questions.

SAT Tutoring review by Frank in Chicago, IL
The student and I spent our last session working through SAT Writing and Reading Comprehension sections of her practice book. The student did very well with vocabulary but needed help in selecting the grammatically incorrect part of the sentence section.
