How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?
The Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT) is a standardized test that is utilized as a part of the admissions process by many private schools. There are three different levels of the SSAT, including elementary, middle, and upper. The elementary level exam is available to students in grades three and four. The middle level exam is offered to students in grades five through seven. Finally, the upper level exam is can be taken by students in grades eight and above.
The SSAT is broken down into four different sections. These include quantitative, reading comprehension, verbal reasoning, and an essay. The quantitative section includes algebra and functions, geometry and spatial sense, measurement and probability, operations, and properties. The reading comprehension section requires students to answer questions based on reading passages. The verbal reasoning section includes analogy questions and vocabulary. The essay section does not count towards your child's final score, but their score and their writing sample will be sent to any school they apply to. Thus, it is still very beneficial to potentially improve on this section.
