I tutored one of my favorite students last night. She is one of the smartest students I have ever worked with. Her parents hired me to help her improve her writing and prepare for the Duke TIPS SAT for 7th graders. She got a letter from Duke indicating that she scored in the top three percent of the students tested.
She and her parents were thrilled with this result. And so am I.
She has devoted the time and effort to understanding the kinds of questions on the SAT writing test and now does better than a few of the high school seniors who I tutor. I expect that by the time she takes the PSAT, she will be a cinch to be a National Merit Scholar is she stays on the straight and narrow path.
