At Tutor the People, we understand how important your child’s education and test scores are. Getting into the best school is always stressful, but when you’re trying to compete for scholarships too, the pressure can feel intense. After all, the PSAT can be a huge influence on where your child goes to college. You need them to stay competitive and do the best they possibly can.

That’s why we believe in taking a more personal approach to PSAT tutoring. We take time to work with you to understand your child’s strengths and weaknesses, so we can create a custom study plan just for them. We understand that every child is unique and that every family situation is different. That’s why we offer private tutoring at prices lower than our competitors, and a money-back guarantee. Our goal at Tutor the People is to help your child get into the school of their dreams, which is why we do everything we can to set up our students for success.

Our Approach

When you first sign up for a PSAT test prep package, the first thing we are going to do is take some time to learn about your tutoring needs, schedule, and experience with the exam. This way we can match you with a tutor who complements your family’s specific needs and learning style.

While other PSAT test prep programs just focus on the exam, we believe that building strong academics is a much better approach as it gives your child academic skills that they can take with them into future classes. We want to make sure that your child retains the information they learn during their PSAT test prep, so we utilize customized study plans designed to engage with your child’s learning style. This way they can take what they learn in tutoring and apply it in the classroom as well as on their exam.

Do you have multiple children preparing for the PSAT? No problem! We offer group tutoring on an as-needed basis whenever you’re ready. Available both online and in-person, we do everything we can to match your busy lifestyle and your child’s personal learning needs.

When the time comes for your child to start their PSAT prep, some of the information we’ll need includes:

  • 1
    What year are you in high school?
  • 2
    Are you just now beginning your PSAT test prep?
  • 3
    Have you taken the PSAT before?
  • 4
    How did you score on each section?
  • 5
    Are you struggling with content?
  • 6
    Are you struggling with strategy?
  • 7
    What prep materials are you using?
  • 8
    What is your schedule like, and what days/times are you available to work with a tutor?

New to PSAT prep? Here’s some information about the PSAT:

The Preliminary SAT (PSAT/NMSQT) is essentially a standardized practice test to get your child ready for the SATs, however, you can earn scholarship money depending on your score. It is administered through Collegeboard and can be taken once a year. Most students take the PSAT during their last two years of high school. The exam is designed to give students an idea of what they need to work on before taking the actual SATs, which makes it an extremely important part of your child’s overall SAT test prep.

The entire test is administered over a period of 2 hours and 45 minutes and is broken up into 4 subsections. The sections are:

  • Evidence-Based Reading
  • Writing and Language
  • Math (With a Calculator)
  • Math (With No Calculator)

PSAT/NMSQT Scholarships

The PSAT is sometimes also referred to as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). When a student takes the PSAT/NMSQT, their scores are automatically submitted to the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, the National Hispanic Recognition Program, the National Scholarship Service, and the Telluride Seminar Scholarships for consideration. College Board will also work with different programs such as The Jackie Robinson Foundation to connect students with potential scholarship programs that they qualify for.
