How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?
The Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT) is a real challenge to many students whose parents want them to attend private schools. Varsity Tutors could help you find an experienced and skilled SSAT tutor in Glenview, IL, who could teach your child how to effectively use their study time.
The SSAT is a nationwide private school admission test given several times a year to students in grades 3-11. There are Elementary Level (grades 3 and 4), Middle Level (grades 5 through 7), and Upper Level (grades 8 and above) versions of the SSAT. Each version of the test includes questions on reading comprehension, quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning, and writing ability. All levels of the test consist of a number of multiple-choice questions, but the questions become more challenging at the Middle and Upper Levels. The math section covers basic arithmetic, problem-solving, and algebra concepts. The reading, vocabulary, and language skills sections cover word usage, punctuation, reading ability, sentence structure, and parts of speech. The length of the test also increases from 1 hour and 50 minutes to 3 hours and 50 minutes from the Elementary to Upper Levels. The essay portion is not scored, but is included in the score report that is sent to schools.
