How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?
The SSAT, or Secondary School Admissions Test, evaluates students' reading comprehension, verbal reasoning, writing, and quantitative capabilities. It is used as the primary tool to determine admittance into many private schools. If your student is aiming to get into an elite private school, they need to get a good score on this exam. SSAT tutors in Chicago, Illinois, can help your child prepare for the exam.
The exam is given one time each month from October until April, and then it is also given once in June. There are three levels of the SSAT: elementary, middle, and upper. For the elementary level, students are given one hour and fifty minutes. It consists of multiple choice questions and is given to third and fourth graders. The middle level gives students three hours and five minutes and is also multiple choice. It is given to students in grades five through seven. The last level, the upper, is also taken in three hours and five minutes and is multiple choice. The upper is the level given in eighth grade and higher. No matter which level of the exam your student is about to tackle, Chicago SSAT tutoring can help them prepare for it.
There are a lot of good reasons to have an SSAT tutor on your side. Tutoring sessions can be centered on your child's needs. The tutor can take plenty of time to get to know your child and create a learning plan that focuses on the areas they need the most help with. If your child struggles with reading comprehension, their tutor can spend as much time as they need on this area. Your child may also learn additional information from their tutor that is not taught by their teacher in school. If you worry that your child needs multiple learning tools and methods to learn the information, the tutor can use different techniques. For example, songs are catchy and may help children memorize important information. Videos could engage their interests and keep them wanting more. These are just a few of the numerous benefits to connecting with skilled SSAT tutors in Chicago.
Your child's meetings with their tutor can be adaptable to your schedule and preferences. If you think your child would do better with an in person meeting, you can have the tutor come to your house or meet at any other setting you believe to be comfortable and conducive to learning. If your and your child's schedules just don't allow for time to meet in person, or they prefer not to meet in this way, there is another option. Our live, interactive online learning platform allows for face-to-face online meetings without leaving the computer chair.
