AJ Tutoring can help your student get off on the right foot by preparing for the PSAT! Our flexible PSAT program helps students build test-taking confidence and develop a systematic approach to the test.

Sessions:

We meet with students for three or nine 90-minute sessions, depending on whether students are doing normal PSAT preparation (three sessions) or full PSAT preparation (nine sessions). For homework, students have either a 90-minute assignment or a full PSAT practice test.

Course content:

Our normal PSAT program covers test-taking strategies like timing, guessing strategy, and question interpretation. Although not comprehensive, it gives students the most fundamental test-taking strategies so that they can treat the PSAT as a serious practice for the SAT.

Our full PSAT program covers all aspects of the test and is identical to our SAT program. We provide students with a deep understanding of the content on the test, like algebra concepts, geometric reasoning, reading comprehension, grammar, and essay writing.

Materials:

We use our own proprietary materials that are updated annually to reflect the current content and best strategies on the test.

At AJ Tutoring, we believe that students should see the PSAT for what it is: a serious practice for the SAT. With this goal in mind, we usually meet with students for three 90 minute sessions to prepare. Although not a comprehensive course, the three sessions allow us to impart to students the most critical test-taking skills and strategies and to touch on a student’s biggest weak spot. Students can then approach the PSAT with a game plan that they implement under conditions that simulate the actual SAT. Students who take the PSAT seriously often feel more confident when they take their first SAT.

We sometimes work with students for the full eight, nine, or ten sessions before the PSAT. Complete preparation before the PSAT is appropriate for students who are competitive for the National Merit Scholarship, maniacally busy during the junior year, or simply eager to get a head-start on SAT preparation. Because we teach an approach to test-taking rather than memorization, students tend to retain the skills and strategies that we teach over a long period of time. Students who complete the preparation before the PSAT in October often need only a few sessions to review before a spring SAT (rather than another eight to ten sessions).
