How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?

If you are considering having your child apply to an elite private school, you will want to prepare them for the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT). This test is used by admissions committees at both private middle and high schools.

While the SSAT scores alone will not determine if a student is admitted into a private school, they help round out the student's application. The SSAT scores are combined with the student's statement, grades, and teacher's recommendations. If your child wishes to try to improve their application portfolio, there are many ways to prepare for the SSAT, including connecting with a tutor who might help your child practice all of the concepts they need to know for the test. If your child is preparing for the SSAT, Varsity Tutors' educational directors can assist you in finding an experienced tutor in Olathe, KS.

Session Summaries by SSAT Tutors

SSAT Tutoring review by Melinda in Olathe, KS
We began our session with some work in mathematics, and we reviewed some basic geometry principles and interest questions. The student did very well with the mathematics. Then we worked on some reading questions, where she only missed one question out of 30! We spent the remainder of the session working in the verbal section, looking at words that she didn't know and highlighting those that will most likely appear on the test. We also spent a lot of time working through analogies, ensuring that she is making the correct analogy between the words. Again, she is a bright and gifted student, and I'm confident that she'll do extremely well on the SSAT!

SSAT Tutoring review by Benjamin in Olathe, KS
The student and I worked through a few parts of the practice tests in the SSAT prep book. We focused primarily on quantitative skills, addressing them as they arose from the questions on the test. He did very well on the verbal sections we practiced and showed definite signs of improvement as our session progressed. I outlined, in brief, the answering strategy that takes most advantage of the test's scoring scheme.

SSAT Tutoring review by Morganne in Olathe, KS
Worked with the student on assessing a plan to best prep him for the test at the end of next week. Reviewed vocabulary and analogy sections of the test.

SSAT Tutoring review by Elyse in Olathe, KS
We looked over the questions the student had already completed and talked about ones she missed when appropriate. We also discussed the guessing penalty and the fact that she should skip questions if they cover material she is completely unfamiliar with, as the test is designed for students in multiple grades. We also discussed common analogy types and how to approach analogies by forming a sentence that expresses the relationship between each item.

SSAT Tutoring review by Jenna in Olathe, KS
The student and I reviewed his vocabulary index cards. We went through 50 of them, and he knew about 40 of the definitions and how to use words in context. We reviewed test-taking strategies for the analogy and synonym portions of the SSAT, such as working vertically, working backward and pacing. We did a couple of reading-comprehension drills -- he is improving his ability to identify the main idea -- and math drills.

SSAT Tutoring review by Kate in Olathe, KS
Because the student had not yet taken a practice exam, we started by going over the structure of the test and trying a few questions from each section to see how comfortable he is. We started with the verbal section - The student has a good understanding of the logic of the analogy questions, but we need to spend some time building his vocabulary. The student tends to lose concentration when reading so we need to prepare him for the 40 minute reading comprehension section. At the end of the session, we discussed the math topics that the student will see on the test and picked out the ones that we will work on next session.
