How can a tutor help your child master the SHSAT?
The Specialized High School Admissions Test, or SHSAT, is a test that New York City students in grades 8 and 9 must take if they wish to apply to New York City's specialized high schools. The test has two sections: verbal and math. The top scoring students are given the pick of their preferred school, so if you want your student to attend a specific high school, then they should thoroughly prepare for the exam. It can be difficult for students to sort through the information they are expected to know on their own, but with the help of a tutor, an organized study plan can be created. The educational directors at Varsity Tutors can help you locate an SHSAT tutor in New York City, New York, who can work with your student on their SHSAT test prep.
The exam tests for both verbal and math skills, which means your student will need to be up to date on all of the information they've covered in middle school. If your student struggles in either of these subjects or needs a refresher, then New York City SHSAT tutoring may be beneficial. A tutor can assess your student's current strengths and weaknesses in both subjects and then create a study plan that addresses these issues.
