How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?
The Secondary School Admissions Test, or SSAT, is a challenging step toward admission into a private middle or high school. Students must do well in order to have their application considered. This may be a stressful time for your child. Depending on their grade level, they may take the Elementary (grades 3-4), Middle (grades 5-7), or Upper (grade 8 and up) Level SSAT. Acing the Quantitative, Reading Comprehension, and Verbal Reasoning sections requires practice. In addition to these, there is an unscored essay that is sent to prospective schools. It's safe to say that you want your student to score as high as possible, which may require outside help. Varsity Tutors may help you connect with an independent tutor in Pittsburgh, PA, who may assist your child in understanding the SSAT.
Whether your student takes the SSAT during one of the monthly dates from October through April or in June, they need to prepare in advance to maximize their chances of success. The Elementary Level test alone is one hour and 50 minutes long. Higher-level students are tested even more, with an exam that clocks in at just over three hours. Studying alone might lead to missed opportunities, such as the opportunity to take relevant timed practice tests, use quality study materials, and develop vocabulary. Test prep classes cover a lot of ground, but don't focus specifically on your child's needs. Fortunately, help is out there.
