How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?
Getting your child into a private middle or high school can be quite difficult. If your student is open to the challenge, then they will have to work very hard to get the grades administrators are looking for. They also have to prepare for the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT). This standardized assessment of academic ability comes in three formats, depending on your child's grade level - an elementary level that's 1 hour, 50 minutes; and middle and upper exams that are over 3 hours long. Preparation is key, as your student will need to be familiar with the exam's format to be confident and ready. Varsity Tutors can find your child an experienced SSAT tutor in Palo Alto, CA, with expertise and depth of knowledge in the subject, and who can try to help students at all levels. Their teaching ability and experience provide just what is needed to get ready.
The SSAT consists of a quantitative math computation section, which includes algebra, geometry, probability, and measurement, among other topics. Other major components include reading comprehension, verbal reasoning, and essay sections. Your child's tutor can find any weaknesses in these areas and build upon them in a customized study plan. An alternative to a "one-size fits all" approach, the tutor will focus exactly on your child's needs as they prepare for the SSAT.
