SAT Writing Tutoring

The writing section is broken down into two types of questions: the essay and multiple choice questions. The essay always is the first question on the SAT, and students are expected to create a handwritten response on the designated answer sheet. Here is a summary of this section:


Question Type # of Questions Time
Multiple Choice 49 35 minutes
Essay 1 25 minutes
Total 50 1 hour


The multiple choice Writing questions will focus around these three types of problems:


Problem Type # of Questions
Improving sentences 25
Improving paragraphs 6
Identifying sentence errors 18

Improving Sentences

In this section, the student is given a passage wherein either the whole passage or a few words are underlined. The student will be given 5 choices of responses that could replace the underlined portion(s).

Identifying Sentence Errors

In this section, the student is presented with a sentence that includes four underlined parts. The student is expected to determine whether or not a grammatical error is present in the underlined parts of the sentence.

In the Essay section (28% of total writing score), students are given a prompt, then are instructed to respond in the given 25 minutes. Students are expected to:

  • Respond to the prompt in a coherent and well-written essay
  • Express their thoughts clearly and employ correct grammatical usage and good writing style

Along with the tutor, the student will be able to apply their learned methods on real SAT writing prompts in practice. The SAT writing practice with the tutor will be helpful in preparing the student for the official test date.
