Extensive PSAT Prep should be viewed as essential for every high school student, for two important reasons. First, a student can become eligible for a valuable college scholarship with a high score on the official PSAT has taken in October during the 11th grade. Second, studying for the PSAT helps a student prepare for the SAT because the tests are very similar. Some people even refer to the PSAT as the “Pre-SAT”, because so many students study for it first, before beginning studies for the SAT. Students looking to score high on the PSAT should consider the PSAT Prep offered here at Education One.
The PSAT is a test paid for by school systems. Since it is a standardized test taken during school hours, some students assume it is just another test required by the state. They are right in that it does not count toward their college admissions in most cases, but they are wrong in that a high score on the PSAT is the qualifying factor for a National Merit Scholarship. In addition, many corporations and colleges offer scholarships based on PSAT scores.
Students interested in earning this scholarship should take the test seriously and prepare accordingly. The first step would be to have your student take our free PSAT diagnostic test, to find out where you stand and make a plan. Using the results of that diagnostic test, our Center Director will recommend the personalized course of study to address weaknesses and build on strengths.
Our PSAT Prep tutors will then use a proven mix of instruction, focused practice problems and simulated exams to provide the maximum boost to your PSAT score. The tutoring is personalized and individualized to meet the needs of each student.
The schedule for PSAT Prep can be customized to meet the needs of most any busy student and parent. A student needing intensive tutoring may visit several times per week, while another may need only occasional lessons for the most difficult concepts. With tutoring sessions available after school, during the evening and on weekends, Education One has a PSAT Prep schedule for every student.
