How can a SSAT- Upper Level tutor help you?
The Upper Level SSAT is used as a private high school admissions test and is intended for students in eighth grade or high school. The Secondary School Admission Test is divided into three discrete sections - Verbal, Reading, and Math. While the test focuses on material typically presented in middle school and at the beginning of high school, the best way for your child to prepare to earn a score that best reflects their abilities is to become familiar with the exam format and types of questions on the test well before the testing date. If your child is beginning to prepare for the rigors of this exam, consider providing them with Upper Level SSAT tutoring from qualified independent Upper Level SSAT, tutors whom Varsity Tutors can connect you with.
Available all across the country, Upper Level SSAT tutoring can help your child identify and address any gaps in knowledge that could cause them problems on test day. For example, if your child has difficulty remembering how to add, multiply, subtract, and divide exponents, their tutor can develop an individualized lesson plan tailored to their particular needs and learning style. These tutors know that success on the SSAT begins with a solid academic foundation of the subjects tested, so they work with their students to strengthen any academic weaknesses that may be present. Also, your child's progress is measured every step of the way. Assignments, practice tests, and even homework are provided to ensure the highest level of content coverage and accuracy in gauging how your student grasps the material - each lesson can be custom-crafted to match your child's needs.
More than just helping your student sharpen their math, verbal, and reading skills, Upper Level SSAT tutoring can help your child acquire valuable test-taking skills and strategies specific to the SSAT. As this may be the first high-stakes standardized test that your child takes in their academic career, a tutor can help your child get used to answering questions in a timed, pressured environment so that they are comfortable and confident on test day. In addition, the tutor can help your child learn test-taking strategies, like how to eliminate answers, actively read passages, and decode question stems. These can make a big difference on test day and may be the determining factor between your child attaining their goal score and missing the testing cut-off point for their school of choice.
At Varsity Tutors, we know that the application process for high schools can be challenging. This may be your child's first time taking tests and filling out applications in hopes of bettering their education. We want to make Upper Level SSAT tutoring, as low-stress and convenient as possible for your child. The process starts by talking to our directors about your child's skill level, needs, and personality, and then, they'll find an exact match that suits your student. Tutors set their own schedules and can work to accommodate your preferred meeting times and locations. Sessions can be set around busy class, extracurricular, and other activity schedules. If your child is comfortable learning at home, the instructor can honor that, or they can meet at any other convenient place. Face-to-face meetings online are also possible if tutoring times/locations cannot be agreed upon - a modern live learning platform is used to maximize the interaction between your student and their tutor.
