How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?

For students planning to take the Secondary School Admissions Test, preparation includes studying the core subjects measured, gaining familiarity with the test format, and gaining confidence to succeed on what may be your student's first admissions test in their academic career. The SSAT is an important step in your student's entrance into private secondary schools. Varsity Tutors may help you streamline your student's studying to suit their specific needs by finding them a skilled SSAT tutor in Cincinnati today.

All of the tutors whom our educational directors may connect you with in Cincinnati are skilled in teaching for the SSAT. There are three versions of the SSAT, developed for elementary, middle, and upper grade students. Each version is multiple choice format and includes four sections: quantitative, reading comprehension, verbal reasoning, and an essay. The quantitative section involves math computation at grade level - number sense, properties, operations, algebra and functions, geometry and spatial sense, measurement and probability. Reading comprehension includes questions based on reading passages, and the verbal section tests vocabulary and analogy comparisons. Scores are converted into grade-appropriate percentile ranks. The essay is unscored, and instead is sent to prospective schools for their review.

Session Summaries by SSAT Tutors

Cincinnati, OH SSAT tutoring
The student was very enthusiastic and inquisitive today. We did a variety of math problems ranging from computational (order of operations) to data analysis (mean, median, mode). He is extremely knowledgeable but unfortunately still makes some errors by not showing his work. We also completed his set of 500 vocabulary flash cards. With a strong vocabulary, he will do well on the analogies; he is very analytical and is adept at determining the relationship between words.

The student and I are working on timing and building vocabulary. We are doing practice problems and trying to give about a minute per problem for practice. We need to continue working on vocabulary. She is very creative and is doing really well on our math practice.

The student and I moved onto the "essay" this time around, which for the middle level SSAT has been turned into more of a creative writing exercise. She did not finish her work on the previous test, so we strategized methods for better using the allotted time. In order to reduce her planning time, she practiced writing outlines for most of the lesson. For the back end, she wrote a quick sample "essay," a piece of writing which showed excellent structure and characterization. We will go over it briefly on the next lesson. Most of our remaining work together will be on guessing tactics. I have impressed on her mother the necessity of vocabulary work over the holiday.

We talked about analogies and some strategies and then went through practice questions together. Then we covered reading comprehension and discussed strategies and format of the test. We also went through practice questions and what different kind of categories of questions he will see. Lastly we did a few math problems and went over some fractions to see what we might need to practice more in the future. He did really well and had even done the "assignment" for his vacation time to write down words he did not know in a notebook and we looked up the definitions together and talked about the meaning in context.

The student and I worked on triangle areas, exponents, and interpreting word problems into equations. We also talked about looking at relationships between numbers. In critical reading, we worked again on making sure there's concrete evidence for answers.
