How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?

Students seeking an excellent education often look to private schools and their great track record of academic excellence.

Now, your child just needs to take the Secondary School Admissions Test, or SSAT, to get into a great private school in your area. But what is a great way to prepare for the SSAT?

Session Summaries by SSAT Tutors

Ann Arbor, MI SSAT tutoring
Today was a good session. We covered a lot today. We first covered two passages and answered about 8-10 questions concerning the passages. The student did an excellent job. We then move on to doing math, specifically the distributive property and square roots. We will continue to review the distributive property. We then finished with working on synonyms and analogies.

The student and I met and began our session with some math warm-up problems. We reviewed addition/ subtraction/ multiplication/ division with negative numbers, averages, angles, area of shapes and percentages. She did well and we did some additional problems to further strengthen her understanding of adding and subtracting negative numbers. We then completed a full timed verbal section. Prior to starting the section, we reviewed her overall strategy for tackling the section. We reviewed her incorrect answers and also her correct answers. For the analogies section, we practiced making sure the analogies are in the correct, matching order. Next session, we will focus on completing an additional practice verbal section to help her practice her concentration and test-taking methods.

Both girls covered the topics of math during this session. Student 1 worked on many of her pre-algebra skills to reinforce some lost skills. Each girl picked up pace after a bit remediation. Each girl has her own way of trying to accomplish work. Student 1 is a by the book process oriented student, and Student 2 is willing to work to find any shortcut possible. Both have the desire to be correct, and ensure that they are ready to move to the next concept.

We worked on synonyms and analogy review with a few reading comprehension questions thrown in. She did well, but there were a few words on the synonym test that we had studied before and she has forgotten. Overall, I can see a bit of improvement, but I can tell we need to work this into a regular rotation again, so that she doesn't fall off. I left her with homework questions in math and reading comprehension which we'll go over when I meet her the next week.

Today we played the vocab dice game and practiced the words coherent, obscure, artificial, accurate, genuine, sham, partisan, phony, objective, skeptical, paramount, tranquil and miserable. The student also started learning the distributive property and is catching on to this concept very quickly. He got all of the questions on his distributive property worksheets correct. He worked on analogies and reading comprehension. He also practiced math word problems that used exponents, percents, ratios, and the order of operations, which he did very well on.

The student and I went over 19 practice problems from a different SSAT math test. He has some difficulty with geometry, given that he has not really ever taken a geometry class, so all future math work will revolve around geometry and its more basic concepts (area, perimeter, polygons, types of angles, etc.). In terms of the questions he answered incorrectly apart from geometry, his main issue is just carefully reading the problems, rather than rushing through them because he feels the need to finish quickly, so that he finishes the test on time. We discussed reading complicated questions twice, again, in order to further stress the issue because when we work out the problems together, he almost immediately realizes what he did wrong. This helps because he is less likely to make those same mistakes for future problems. I made him a little chart of different polygon types, so that he won't get mixed up with words such as "pentagon" and "hexagon."
