How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?
If you are planning on having your child apply to a private school, they may need to take the Secondary School Admissions Test, also known as the SSAT, for short. It's a standardized admissions test used by private schools across the US, to evaluate the academic skills of students in grades 3-11. If you're hoping to get your child into an elite boarding school or other private school, a good score is an absolute must. Professional tutors can help students achieve high test scores. If you're preparing for the SSAT, Varsity Tutors' educational directors can assist you in finding an experienced tutor in Irvine to help.
The SSAT has three different levels: 3rd and 4th graders take the Elementary level, 5th through 7th graders take the Middle level, and 8th through 12th graders take the Higher level. We will connect you with an SSAT tutor who is experienced in all levels of the test, as well as all three sections: verbal reasoning, reading comprehension, and quantitative. Your child's tutor will continuously evaluate skill levels and progress. A customized curriculum could help place more focus on areas where your child is weak, while reviewing other areas to keep them fresh and strong in the mind. SSAT essays are used to evaluate your child's writing skills. So, tutoring time will also be spent learning skills needed to write an awesome SSAT essay that will impress administrators at the schools to which your child has applied. A skilled professional SSAT tutor in Irvine, CA, can give your child much-needed one-on-one attention.
Oftentimes, students don't practice effective study methods when studying alone. Tutors help students improve their study techniques, while providing positive reinforcement as skills and techniques improve. This helps to build confidence. The tutor will tap into your child's interests to create a lesson plan that entices your young student to want to learn more. All of this gives your child a competitive edge when applying for top private schools. You can get connected with a skilled SSAT tutor in Irvine by contacting Varsity Tutors.
