Tampa PSAT Tutor’s Student Makes National Merit Scholar Cutoff

Posted on 23rd September 2010 in Tampa PSAT Tutoring

I got some great news the other day. One of my students worked extremely hard preparing for the PSAT. When he got his scores, we thought that he had missed the cutoff by one point based on the projected cutoff given shortly after the test.

However, he heard that he made it and can at least make a run for semi-finalist and finalist!

I’m so proud of him for the time that he invested to make dramatic gains in the vocabulary section of the PSAT reading and in each kind of question in the writing sections of the PSAT! It was not an easy climb.

Tutoring Student Makes National Merit Semi Finalist

Posted on 22nd September 2010 in Tampa PSAT Tutoring

A student that I worked with on the reading and writing portions of the PSAT has become a semi finalist in the race for a National Merit Scholarship.

How cool is that?

He started out brilliant and out-worked the competition. I wish him the very best of luck and pray that he becomes a National Merit Scholar.

On the same day that I got some bad news, this bit of good news really gave me a lift.

New Tampa Writing Tutor’s Student Gets FCAT Writes Results: 6

Posted on 28th May 2010 in Tampa FCAT Preparation

All school year, I have been working with one of my favorite students to improve her writing. Today she shared some exciting news. She earned a perfect 6 on her FCAT Writes, and she received an award from her school as the top student on her team.

She always does more writing than I assign, so I’m not surprised that she earned the top score on her FCAT Writes. Today was our last session until August, so I have an opening to take a new writing student this summer.

If your son or daughter would like to become a better writer, contact Tampa Writing Tutor Eric Anderson at 813.787.8959 or e-mail him at TampaTutor at tampa bay dot rr dot com.

New Tampa SAT Student Rocks 100 Point Gain on Writing Section

Posted on 27th April 2010 in Tampa SAT Preparation

I have been working with a New Tampa SAT student to help her improve her performance on the writing section. We just did a test to benchmark our progress against the writing scores on the test that she took at our first session.

Wow!

She improved her SAT writing score 100 points!

Working one-on-one with me, she learned how to recognize the errors that are frequently tested in the improving sentences and recognizing sentence errors sections.

We have a long time to go before she takes the SAT in October, but I feel great about her chances to dramatically improve her SAT writing score.

If your son or daughter plans to take the SAT in October and would like help in designing a study program, call New Tampa SAT Tutor Eric Anderson at 813.787.8959 or email him at Tampa tutor at Tampa bay dot rr dot com. Eric tutors the reading and writing portions of the SAT.
