PSAT results are out


By now, most juniors should have received PSAT results from their schools.  If you’re not sure how to read your score report, here’s how it works: you have three scores, one for critical reading, one for math, and one for writing.  Those scores are added together to give you a composite score.   To get your approximate SAT score, just add a zero onto the end of each score.  Now, compare that approximate SAT score to average scores at your colleges of choice.   If you want to improve your PSAT score and get a better result on the SAT, you’re in the right place!

AJ Tutoring has a fantastic individualized SAT preparation program.  We pair you one-on-one with a tutor at our Palo Alto, Saratoga, or San Jose office.  Over the course of 9 sessions, you’ll learn everything there is to know about test-taking strategies, what’s actually on the test, and how to best prepare for the big day.

If you’re planning to take the March 10 SAT, there’s no time to waste!  With only 8 weeks left before the test, there’s still time to prepare, but the AJ Tutoring team is starting to fill up.  If you’d like to start tutoring for the March SAT, give Aaron or Joe a call at (650) 331-3251, or email info@ajtutoring.com.

If, on the other hand, you haven’t thought about the SAT since you got those PSAT results back, now’s the time to start planning.  You should have a full round of tests (SAT, ACT, SAT subject tests) done by the end of junior year, so you can retake the tests senior year if necessary.   We would be happy to help you develop a testing plan that makes the most sense with your schedule – give us a call at (650) 331-3251.
