The Secondary School Admissions Test, or SSAT, is the benchmark administrators of competitive schools use to assess the abilities of children. It is given in formats for students in grades 3-11. Your child may therefore take the exam if they are looking to get into a top elementary, middle, or high school. While the elementary version is 1 hour, 50 minutes, the other two are over 3 hours long. These multiple choice tests can therefore challenge your student in ways they are not accustomed to. Getting from point A to point B may be illusive. Anxieties can certainly get in the way as well. Varsity Tutors' experienced educational directors are happy to try to help your student in Cambridge, MA, connect with a qualified SSAT tutor, who can try to help them pursue their goals.

The SSAT tests grade-level math, including operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and probability. Your child's vocabulary and analytical skills will be tested as well, not to mention their reading comprehension. They will need to know how to write. Even though the essay portion is not scored, prospective schools will see the sample as the kind of writing your child is capable of.

Knowing these things is not enough. Your child has to be able to demonstrate their full potential. Their tutor's instruction can focus on any weaknesses, and target them in customized lessons. It can also concentrate on studying and test-taking skills, concepts that must equally be understood to score well on the SSAT and other standardized exams. If your child needs a more thorough, directed, and efficient study plan, find an expert SSAT tutor in Cambridge today by contacting Varsity Tutors' educational directors.

An expert SSAT tutor in Cambridge can help your student reach their maximum potential. The instructor can work at your child's pace, and assess how well the study plan is working. Alternative teaching methods and study tools can be tried along the way, until your student is confident in their skills and readiness. Another great aspect of tutoring is it can be worked around a busy schedule. Tutors can meet at school or at home, or wherever your child is most comfortable, at a time that doesn't conflict with classes, other exams, or activities. Online face-to-face lessons are available using a live learning platform so, whatever your child's needs, let us help you find SSAT tutoring in Cambridge, MA, to try to help your student prepare for the test. The personalized approach can help them understand the exam and get into the school of choice.

Recent Cambridge SSAT Tutoring Session Notes

SSAT Tutoring review by Tara in Cambridge
For our last session, the student and I did a timed mock exam. We went over how she should approach the math section, and what questions she should skip. We reviewed test taking strategies for the verbal section, and did a few reading passages. I reminded her to not get frustrated if she came across a problem she did not know. I think she will do great on the test.

SSAT Tutoring review by Jeffrey in Cambridge
We debriefed the SSAT which the students took last week. Then Student 1 worked on his vocabulary by taking practice tests on the website. With Student 2, I reviewed geometry. Then she did some math practice problems on the website. I recommend that Student 1 work on vocabulary by looking up words that he does not know and then writing sentences that use those words. I recommend that Student 2 write geometry test questions and also do more of the math practice problems on the website.

SSAT Tutoring review by Alysa in Cambridge
The student was feeling confident in his math so we started reading comprehension today. He was excited for this. We went over some techniques to try while reading through paragraphs. We discussed how reading these passages is different than reading for pleasure. The student was able to write one or two key words next to each paragraph, determine the "what" and "so what" for each passage, and then use the process of elimination when answering the questions.

SSAT Tutoring review by Gina in Cambridge
Yesterday the student and I met to continue her studying for the SSAT. She would like to increase her reading score. Her first set of scores were VERY GOOD but the student would like to see if she can score a bit higher- particularly in the reading. I bought some practice reading tests from the SSAT middle and she and I did a few of them together during our session. She does great on all of the questions. She does fine identifying things that were not explicitly stated. We also did a few math problems, synonyms, and fable readings as breaks from a total reading comprehension focused session. She and I will continue to work on reading exercises.

SSAT Tutoring review by Alyssa in Cambridge
The student and I did practice questions today. We focused on math, and we discovered that geometry is currently his weakness. We learned geometry vocabulary (perimeter and area), and we practiced finding the perimeter and area of triangles and squares. We also discussed circle vocabulary (perimeter = circumference, how to find circumference, diameter and area). He needs more practice with geometry, but he hasn't really learned it in school yet.

SSAT Tutoring review by Alejandro in Cambridge
We started with the first few chapters of the student's SSAT study guide. The first couple of chapters we covered were some lower-level math used to lay the foundation for the student to be ready to understand the more difficult types of problems found in the test. It took some time for him to get warmed up, but once he is engaged and actively participating it becomes very easy for him to understand and perform. Once we covered a few chapters of math, we moved on to the first two reading chapters in order to gauge his proficiency in this area. He did very well in reading.
