PSAT Tutoring

Answer a few questions to connect with your perfect tutor

Why Enhanced Prep?

Many tutoring companies claim that they can help students increase their test scores, but very few can support those claims and almost none of them focus on a student's ultimate goal - getting into their dream school. Nowadays, it takes more than a single strong test score to get into college. Students have got to have the grades and the test scores and then some. At Enhanced Prep, we provide a truly customizable approach to tutoring, focusing on each student's specific needs. We match students with the right tutor who can help them study for a biology test one day and prep for their upcoming college entrance exam the next.

How Enhanced Prep PSAT Tutoring Helps Test-Takers

Students can begin practicing for the SAT, measuring readiness for college, and open access to scholarship opportunities as early as 8th grade by taking one or more versions of the PSAT. Beginning this process can be stressful, so working with an online PSAT tutor can help students determine which test is best for them and prepare to do their best on exam day. There is no shortage of online PSAT tutors to choose from, but that can also mean there are a lot of tutors who aren't a great fit; that's why Enhanced Prep only hires professional tutors with a minimum of 5 years' experience. Enhanced Prep is an elite, world-class tutoring service that uses a proven methodology and holistic approach to tutoring, so test-takers get the practice they need.

Online PSAT Tutors Can Help With Any PSAT Exam

The PSAT exams have several different purposes depending on which exam students take and when they take it. The PSAT 8/9 Exam gives students early feedback on areas important for college and career success. The PSAT 10 also measures college readiness, but since it is taken the year before students are eligible for the SAT, it is primarily used as SAT practice. The PSAT/NMSQT Exam helps students become eligible for several scholarship programs. Enhanced Prep's team of top-tier tutors can help students determine which PSAT exam is best for them and their goals.
Enhanced Prep's PSAT tutors believe in constant and consistent communication between the student, tutor, and parents because everyone invested in a student's success understands what they need to be successful. This open communication is a core part of Enhanced Prep's commitment to serving both customers – parents and students. Test-takers who want to get an early idea of where they stand with the PSAT, start practicing for the SAT, or become eligible for several academic merit scholarships should consider using Enhanced Prep's highly referred service (with an average of 3 students referred per family) for online PSAT help.

The PSAT Exams

Students in grades 8-10 can take one or more PSAT exams to gauge their knowledge and skills for college and career readiness, prepare to take the SAT, or qualify for academic merit scholarships such as the National Merit Scholarship. Students will take a certain exam depending on where they are at in their education; for example, students in grades 8 and 9 would take the PSAT 8/9, while students in grade 10 would take the PSAT 10 or PSAT/NMSQT. All PSAT exams have Math, Reading & Writing and Language sections, with the content of each exam being very similar. Candidates are tested on topics such as algebra, problem-solving, data analysis, reading comprehension, and writing. Students who don't know what exams to take should consider getting help from a PSAT tutor at Enhanced Prep. We pair all students with the right tutor to help with test scores, academic areas of focus and scholarship applications, all the way to college applications.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I prepare for a PSAT exam?

The first step to preparing for a PSAT exam is to remember that it is just for practice; the scores can be used for scholarships, but a less-than-desirable score does not mean you can't still do well on the SAT or qualify for scholarships. Studying the content that will be on the exam and taking at least a few practice tests is a good idea. Learning helpful test-taking strategies can also help prepare you to stay focused and confident on test day. Finding out the areas you need help in and sticking to a study plan can be difficult, so it is wise to seek the help of a PSAT tutor. Enhanced Prep's tutors create a unique game plan for each student, so you can be sure that you're getting the PSAT help you need in time for test day.

Are PSAT exams hard?

The structure and content of the PSAT exams is similar to the SAT but students should be familiar with the content presented (this includes students taking the PSAT 8/9 exam, which is structured the same as the regular PSAT but tests students at academic levels they're familiar with). Topics such as data analysis, problem-solving, algebra, advanced math, reading analysis and comprehension, and writing abilities are tested. However, it may have been a while since students have reviewed the content. This is why working with a tutor can be beneficial to a student's success. Online PSAT tutors can help students identify what content areas they need the most work in, whether they just need a simple refresher on familiar topics or they need extra help with advanced work.

How many times can I retake a PSAT exam?

Schools decide if they want to offer PSAT exams and when. There are usually 3 test dates; 1 regular test day, 1 Saturday test day, and 1 alternate test day, but students can only choose 1 date. The PSAT/NMSQT test is typically offered in October while the PSAT 10 and PSAT 8/9 is offered during certain periods of time, such as between September and January, between February and March, or sometime in April. Students can only take the PSAT once per year, and only juniors (and occasionally some sophomores) are eligible to take the PSAT/NMSQT. Because the exam can only be taken once per year, students may want to work with PSAT tutors to make sure they're prepared in time for test day.

Are calculators allowed on PSAT exams?

Students must bring their own calculators to the PSAT exam. Scientific and graphing calculators are permitted, although only certain types. Four-function calculators are also allowed but not recommended. Students are responsible for making sure their calculators have good batteries and are in working order. They may only use them on the Math – Calculator Allowed portion of the exam. To make taking the exam easier, students should bring a calculator they are familiar with, preferably the one they have been studying or practicing with.

What is a passing score on PSAT exams?

The PSAT exams are used for practice for the SAT exams, so they have a similar scoring scale. Scores on the PSAT range from 320 to 1520. The higher the score a student achieves, the more likely they're ready for college and the better chances they'll have at passing the SAT and qualifying for scholarships. Because the PSAT is scored this way and used for a variety of purposes, there is no pass/fail structure. Students should aim to achieve a score that will help them reach their goals.
