How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?

If you plan on enrolling your child in a private middle or high school, they may have to take the SSAT, or Secondary School Admission Test, as part of their acceptance process. This test has four sections: quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension, verbal reasoning, and an unscored writing essay. The test takes more than three hours for the middle and upper levels, and almost two hours for the elementary level, which is for students entering grades three and four.

Faced with such a comprehensive and lengthy test, it is easy for a child to feel overwhelmed, especially if their acceptance to their new school depends on their getting good scores. A tutor will certainly help ease your child's anxiety. Varsity Tutors can help you find an experienced SSAT tutor in Riverside who can try to help your child attain success by creating a study plan that is focused on them. Tutors can learn with your child face-to-face over the internet or in person. They can come to any location of your choosing and study sessions can always be scheduled at a time that works for you and your child.

The student practiced vocabulary, analogies and reading comprehension questions. We practiced strategies on root words, prefixes and suffixes. She is taking her test next Friday and I assured her to be confident and she'll do fine. I advised her to take 2 more practice tests prior to her exam. She has improved her test taking skills.

We worked through the SSAT Upper Level Test 1, section 1 (math). Her calculation skills are solid; reading of the word problems is an area for improvement. She is quick to grasp logical rather than mathematical solutions to problems. We also did 17 problems of section 4 (math). We did section 3 (vocabulary). She is strong on analogies. Vocabulary is an area for improvement. The student's writing sample was proficient, with good basic command of narrative, grammar and syntax, and a few technical elements that would be improved with proofreading.

We discussed the general format of the test and what each section is. Then I had him take part of a diagnostic test in my study book. He took the verbal part of the test and we discussed the few he missed in the synonyms and analogies section. He did well and kept good notes of tips to remember.

The student and I had our first math tutoring session for the SSAT. Her prep book had not yet come in the mail so we used her laptop to access my personal copy online to work on practice problems. We first did "Test Yourself" problems that force students to practice their basic arithmetic, fractions, and exponents. She did well and her confidence showed, however she did make some minor errors. We continued on to the more advanced word problems and this is where she excelled. Once she knows how to solve a problem, she finishes quickly and accurately. I am confident we will make significant progress in our next session.

The student and I focused on analogies and reading comprehension exercises, discussing strategies to getting the right answer. She seems competent and feels more comfortable with these subjects, so we are going to spend our consecutive Monday and Tuesday sessions getting into math concepts. I asked her to complete a practice set from each of the question types so that we can look at how she's doing and review her mistakes Monday. We also discussed studying vocab and taking advantage of independent reading as an opportunity to improve vocab. The majority of our time was just spent reasoning through questions together.

The student and I started by reviewing math concepts from last week. It seemed as if he had a very solid grasp of everything we covered, which was encouraging. We then moved onto verbal for roughly 80-85 minutes, and he generally did well. I encouraged him to review his SAT verbal book for help with vocabulary. We then moved on to some reading passages, where he generally excelled. I suggested that he do some more practice problems before we speak next so that we may address specific shortcomings.
