Key Question Types in SAT Reading

By Steven Darby - July 20, 2023

At Peak Learning Solutions, our teachers understand and convey the importance of being familiar with the key question types in the SAT Reading section. By understanding these question types, you'll be able to support your child better throughout their preparation.

During our sessions, our teachers (we call ourselves teachers because we are all teachers first unlike most tutors and tutoring organizations) will explain the three general question types: key ideas and details, craft and structure, and integration of knowledge and ideas. We will delve into specific question types such as tone, author's intent, chronology, description recall, word/phrase reference, word/phrase usage, word/phrase meaning, and passage summary.


Our dedicated teachers (we call ourselves teachers because we are all teachers first unlike most tutors and tutoring organizations) will work with your child, providing examples and practice questions for each question type. We will guide them in understanding central themes, summarizing information, drawing inferences, and understanding relationships. We will also help them analyze word meanings, author's word choice, purpose, and different perspectives.

With our comprehensive approach, your child will become familiar with each question type, enabling them to tackle the SAT Reading section with confidence.
