PSAT test prep

Get the practice and confidence you need to succeed on the PSAT.

The PSAT is more than a practice test.

Preparing for the SAT is a process. We find that students who prepare for the PSAT ultimately get better results. We offer a range of flexible PSAT test prep programs designed to leverage the PSAT as a learning and confidence-building experience.

Our programs teach you the skills you need for the PSAT and the SAT. Tutoring instills confidence and gives you a systematic approach for the PSAT.


The PSAT Short Course

This is the program that makes sense for most students. It consists of 3-5 sessions to cover test-taking strategies, enabling students to treat the PSAT as serious practice for the SAT.


Full Preparation for the PSAT

Typically 10 sessions, this program is similar to our SAT program and may appeal to students who are seeking a National Merit Scholarship or who want a head start on SAT preparation.

What is the PSAT?

The PSAT is a practice SAT taken in October of sophomore or junior year. The PSAT gives students an early indication of their SAT score and qualifies the top percentage of test-takers for the National Merit Scholarship.

The new PSAT 8/9 and PSAT 10 tests are designed to cover freshman and sophomore curriculum. These tests familiarize students with the PSAT and SAT format and connect students to AP courses they can take later in high school.
