How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?

Private schools have many differences compared to their public counterparts, and admissions tests represent one of the utmost challenges for a student. The Secondary School Admissions Test for grades 3-11 is offered from October to April every month, and in June. It comes in elementary, middle, and upper formats. The elementary test for 3rd or 4th graders is 1 hour 50 minutes; the middle test for grades 5-7 and the upper test for grades 8 and up are 3 hours 5 minutes. Each exam has quantitative, verbal reasoning, reading comprehension, and essay sections. To succeed, your student must be proficient in all these areas, and an outside tutor may maximize their chances of scoring well. You may find SSAT tutors in Memphis, TN, by calling the Varsity Tutors educational directors today.

Tutors are found based on a student's subject skill level and various other metrics. The personal instructor may work with your child's strengths and weaknesses and target their study plan accordingly.

Session Summaries by SSAT Tutors

SSAT Tutoring review by Sabrina in Memphis, TN
With Student 1, we worked on reading comprehension, since he got above an 80% on the verbal diagnostic. We talked about the types of questions he'll see (infer, summarize, vocab, fact) and how he should approach long passages, mainly previewing the questions and writing 2-3 word summaries after each paragraph, and underlining keywords/ideas. Long passages can be boring and wordy, so these techniques will help him stay focused. Student 2 is great at the analogies, but didn't do well on the synonym section, mainly because of vocab. So, we went over common roots/prefixes/suffixes to help him decipher the meaning of words. He shouldn't focus on memorizing the meaning of the roots per say, but instead make connections to words he already knows. We will move on to reading comprehension next session.

SSAT Tutoring review by Jaymi in Memphis, TN
The student has been working on math strategies with her mother, and I can see improvement in her problem solving. She did very well on the analogies and much better on the synonyms from her homework. Her dad said she has resumed studying her vocabulary more intently, which is what I attribute the gain to. I assigned her a more rigorous round of homework across the categories this week since she will be taking the actual test in less than three weeks.

SSAT Tutoring review by Rachel in Memphis, TN
Today, we covered the two quantitative portions of the SSAT, as well as the verbal reasoning portion of the SSAT. The student continues to improve in her math skills; however, she needs to read the questions more carefully, to avoid simple mistakes. She used her bilingual abilities and relevant pop-culture (Harry Potter & Divergent) to help her with some of the words presented in the verbal section -- a great strategy, because the words used in the novels are based on Latin root words! Scores: 38/50 quantitative reasoning, 48/60 verbal reasoning.

SSAT Tutoring review by Ashley-Rose in Memphis, TN
In our session we reviewed area and perimeter of rectangles, squares, triangles, trapezoids and parallelograms. The student struggled with this topic a bit, but she is making progress. We also did a math practice test and reviewed all of the answers. She did well on this and I am sure that she can continue to improve. I made a page of notes for her to memorize for her test and gave this to her to study. Overall, great session.

SSAT Tutoring review by Matthew in Memphis, TN
We had a very good session today. We reviewed a practice essay that the student wrote and noted a few ways to improve it. We also reviewed a few math problems related to sets to clear that topic up. We briefly discussed the differences between the upper and middle SSAT as he may be taking the upper next year. We then brainstormed a new writing prompt, so he will be writing an essay for next week. Finally, we practiced many analogies. I sent him three new diagnostic tests.

SSAT Tutoring review by Margaret in Memphis, TN
The student took a practice test on Saturday. She showed a HUGE improvement in the reading section (she scored in the 90th percentile). She also showed an improvement in verbal (60th percentile), but she struggled in math. Now we know what we really need to focus on.
