How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?

If your goal is to see your child attend a top private middle or high school, then they need to take the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT). The scores from this exam are heavily considered when students are admitted to such schools. As such, you will want your child to be prepared for test day. This is where a personal SSAT tutor may come in handy. Varsity Tutors can help you locate an enthusiastic SSAT tutor in Houston, Texas, who can work with your student. Their tutor can help them prepare for the exam at a time and place that you choose. Your child's tutor can even meet with them in person or online, covering everything from test structure to timing.

The exam has four timed sections: reading comprehension (40 minutes), quantitative (60 minutes), verbal reasoning (30 minutes), and essay (25 minutes). A Houston, Texas, SSAT tutor can work with your student on either every section of the test or just the sections that your student struggles with. To help pinpoint the exact sections that your child needs the most help, their tutor can provide them with a practice exam. After determining the sections that need review, your child and their tutor can then develop a personalized study plan made especially for them. The idea of having a time limit for each section is generally a point of anxiety for students, but a tutor can help here as well. Your child's tutor can time them while they take practice exams to mimic the environment that they will experience on exam day. Your child's tutor can also help them go over their essay and cover tips and tricks for exam essay writing.

Session Summaries by SSAT Tutors

SSAT Tutoring review by Rebekah in Houston, TX
We finished making our division flash cards and discovered that the student really has not had much of an introduction to fractions. We worked on reducing and creating basic fractions and hope to work on some addition for next time. We also did some long division and some timed verbal practice which was good to see. I'd like to do the same vocab questions with her next time to make sure she retained the word meanings.

SSAT Tutoring review by Miranda in Houston, TX
The student and I hadn't met for a few weeks, so we discussed the practice she'd been doing in the meantime. Apparently she has finished the analogies practice book, so during the session we worked on reading and math. I've been working her up to longer stretches of reading (multiple passages in a row) and her performance doesn't seem to be slipping, so I told her mom to look for some full-section length practice tests that we could start working on. I'm also interested to see how her ungraded writing section will turn out, so I started looking for some prompts (the essay for the elementary level is to tell a story based on a picture prompt that is provided).

SSAT Tutoring review by Abbi in Houston, TX
I had the student do some reading comprehension questions. She struggled with concentrating and didn't quite finish the diagnostic, but she did well with help and talking her through the questions. Then we reviewed some word arithmetic on how to determine word meaning and I gave her a handout to work on it.

SSAT Tutoring review by Najwa in Houston, TX
This was my first session with the student. She is a pleasure to teach. I initially gave her verbal and mathematics and we went over it for the remaining session. I left her with reading comprehension and more verbal as practice. I do not have any concerns from this session and look forward to our next session.

SSAT Tutoring review by Pieta in Houston, TX
The student completed some more vocab flash cards. I quizzed her, and she remembered each definition. Then I quizzed her on some more difficult words from the word list, and she came up with ways to remember the words. We looked at a few root words and analyzed. Then we moved to analogies. For math, we covered addition of negative numbers; prime numbers; multiplication and division using negative numbers; and fractions. We will meet again next week, on Wed.
