PSAT

The PSAT is the best way to prepare for the SAT. You may also qualify for a National Merit Scholarship if you earn a high score.

The math section of the PSAT tests basic junior high and early high school math skills. This section is very similar to the math section on the SAT except the PSAT contains no algebra II questions.

One-on-one PSAT tutoring

Private PSAT lessons with Dr. Donnelly are available either online via Skype for those students living outside of the New York City area or in-person at our office located at 1460 Broadway, Suite 15017 for those students living here in Manhattan.

Recent PSAT students' testimonials


5 star review - Confrence G., Brooklyn, NY

"Doctor, Eijiro was just offered a place at Harvard University! Thank you so much for all of your help in tutoring her for her SAT exam. I don't think she would have made it without you."

5 star review - Anne L., Manhattan, NY

4 star review - Neelu., Manhattan, NY

"The fundamentals I learned from Dr. Donnelly were very helpful. I received the one-on-one attention that I did not receive in the Kaplan prep test. I did not feel embarrassed to ask basic questions. Dr. Donnelly was very patient with explaining concepts in detail until I understood. Additionally, he was always available via email or phone."

5 star review - Jacqui S., Manhattan, NY

"Dr. Donnelly's private tutoring stands apart from other mainstream/commercial review programs because he isolates an individual's weaknesses and tailors a successful review and test-taking strategy that conforms to an individual's needs -- rather than those of the masses. Dr. Donnelly was able to quickly understand and dissect my thought process in order to help me break old habits and establish stronger test-taking skills so I could get that higher score I wanted."

5 star review - Vaishivi J., Manhattan, NY

"I want to start with saying that you are an amazing tutor! My composite went from a 29 the last two times I took the ACT to a 33! You helped me achieve a 11 point jump on my science section, and a full 4 points on my composite in the two months you tutored me! Thank you so much, I will recommend you to all my friends, and hopefully in a few years be back in your office for help on the MCAT's. Thank you again"

5 star review - E. H. Clements, Head of Mathematics, French International School, Hong Kong

"Dr. Donnelly has shown himself sensitive to the needs of his students, responding to their questions, offering reassurances, when necessary, and challenging pupils to consider the subject matter in depth. I recommend him to you without hesitation."

5 star review - Mike H., Greenwich, CT

"Dr. Donnelly has a real knack for explaining topics in plain English and for making them come alive with real-life examples. I would encourage anyone who needs to get up to speed in their preparation for undergraduate or graduate studies to give Dr. Donnelly a call. You won't regret it!"

5 star review - Jodi B., Manhattan, NY

"Dr. Donnelly was patient, kind and willing to work with me in various areas to help improve not just my score but my understanding of the questions. His schedule is flexible and he is willing to work with you to give you what you need. My score went up dramatically and I would recommend Tutors of Oxford to anyone."

5 star review - Pauline E., Brooklyn, NY

"Dr. Donnelly is patient and supportive and is clear when explaining questions that were challenging to me. He also urged me to work out questions on my own, which was extremely helpful. He created an atmosphere in which I looked forward to the challenge of each section on the practice tests, and I definitely felt more confident taking the test. If I need to prepare for another standardized test, I will definitely contact Dr. Donnelly."
