How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?

The Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT) is an exam administered to children in grades three through 11 who are applying to enroll in a private middle or high school. The score on the test is used to determine whether admittance into the school is possible, and what level the child should enter upon approval for entry. If you're considering a private middle or high school for your child, the SSAT is an important part of the enrollment process. One of a great ways to strive to ensure your child has an outstanding test performance is to set up sessions with a professional tutor. Varsity Tutors can connect you with experienced SSAT tutors in San Marcos, TX, who are experts in their field and skilled at teaching students of all levels.

The SSAT is a comprehensive exam that includes a writing sample request, a mixture of 25 quantitative questions, a reading comprehension section that includes 40 questions, and a verbal section that asks 30 synonym questions and 30 analogy questions. Even if you feel your child has good basic reading, verbal, writing, and math skills, this exam may contain in-depth questions that your child has trouble answering. The help of a specialized tutor can try to help your child prepare for the types of questions that may appear on the exam. The Varsity Tutors educational directors can find you an expert SSAT tutor in San Marcos, TX, to cater to your child's specific needs.

Session Summaries by SSAT Tutors

San Marcos, TX SSAT tutoring
We went over the student's practice test that I assigned them from last time. They improved this time around using the strategies that I taught them for taking the test, but still had issues with vocabulary and reading responses. We spent the entire session going over other sample reading sections and walking through them.

We continued to work on SAT math topics today. I had assigned two practice sections and the student did well. We went over all of them and did some worksheets together (geometry, least common multiples, and a mixed rate word problems) and then I had her practice her "picking numbers" math technique. I noticed that she uses this technique very well when she is told that it will be useful, but she needs to practice identifying for herself which problems she can solve with this method. She also still shows some struggles with pencil-and-paper arithmetic and I may assign her some drill sheets for these to polish her skills.

We covered synonyms and their root words and how to identify prefixes, suffixes, and other stem words. We also did reading comprehension practice. We need to build up his vocabulary some more but his reading comprehension is very good.

We worked on the quantitative and reading comprehension sections. In the math section, in addition to general practice, we talked about special right triangles and looked at some complicated multi-step problems. For the reading comprehension, we isolated the 6 types of questions that will appear on the test, and practiced strategies for answering each of them.

The student did a practice set of analogies and we reviewed some that he had trouble with but overall he did very well. Then he did a set of math problems as an exercise to combine some of the concepts in fractions, word problems, etc. He did pretty well and we reviewed the 3 questions he had trouble with. Again, he is doing quite well and we were able to work through the trouble spots. Then he did a short synonyms practice set. He did well and only missed 3-4 words. He is in good shape in test prep and we will work on speed for the math section as well as estimating to ball park the answer before fully solving and some fractions work to refresh.

The student and I reviewed the math homework that I assigned her after our last session. She has a good knowledge of math. We spent some time reviewing certain concepts and formulas. Next, we went over the English passages she completed for homework. She is strong in answering English questions, especially the mechanics questions. Next, we practiced answering science questions with a time limit for each passage. She was almost able to finish within the time limit, so we will continue to practice timing on the science section next time as well.
