How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?

The Secondary School Admissions Test, or SSAT, is taken by students planning on applying to certain private schools. It is a standardized method of measuring a student's preparedness for the school's curriculum. It has three separate levels: elementary, middle, and upper. Each includes four sections: quantitative, reading comprehension, verbal reasoning, and an essay. All sections but the essay count towards the final score. Although the essay is not scored, it is sent to individual schools along with your test results. If your child struggles with any of the areas tested, making a good score on the SSAT may be difficult for them. A personal SSAT tutor can help them prepare for test day. Varsity Tutors provides access to educational directors who can work with you to discover a San Diego, California, SSAT tutor for your student.

The SSAT reading comprehension section uses synonyms and analogies to test students on their reading capabilities. It also includes a number of different genres, including poetry. If reading has always been a weak point for your student, then personalized help may be a solution. A personal tutor can use test prep materials that focus on your student's areas of weakness. Through diagnostic assessments, their tutor can determine what aspects of the reading section give them the most problems and then work on those specific issues. San Diego SSAT tutoring offers students the chance to work with their tutor one-on-one on the sections that cause them issues.

SSAT Tutoring review by Alysa in San Diego, CA
This was our first session so we used the time to discuss our study plan for the test and to go over basic test taking tips. Since we didn't have the results from the diagnostic yet - we started with synonyms. She did very well. We discussed a guess strategy - and how to eliminate some choices. Next session we will go over the diagnostic and work on the writing sample. After that we may start with the math session in case we need more time in this area. When she gets the most common vocabulary list she is going to go through the list and identify words that she knows versus words she does not know.

SSAT Tutoring review by Channing in San Diego, CA
The student completed a practice test over the weekend to assess how she may score. It's helpful because it allows us to see exactly where she needs to improve. For math, there are just certain concepts that we've yet to cover. For verbal, she needs to continue studying vocab; but I'll also work with her on a balance between omitting questions, and making educated guesses. We'll review and practice the reading strategy we covered in a previous session.

SSAT Tutoring review by Benjamin in San Diego, CA
Today the student and I focused on reading and in particular timed reading, which he will face on the test. We did a mock reading test where the student had twenty minutes to complete half of a practice forty-minute reading test. The student is definitely able to do the reading in time and I think the biggest issue that we will continue to work on is test anxiety. For next time, the student will continue to work on the verbal section and on writing definitions.

SSAT Tutoring review by Avery in San Diego, CA
The student and I had a great session. We worked in detail on percentage and discount questions that appear multiple times on the practice tests. We also reviewed vocabulary words and reading sections. She was able to really grasp the concept on how to set up the percentage questions, which was great!

SSAT Tutoring review by Tara in San Diego, CA
The student and I went over the note cards that he made up from last session's vocabulary. He seemed to know most of them, and we thought of memory tricks for the words he missed. We spent the rest of the session reviewing some math concepts- factors, multiples, adding/subtracting fractions, and manipulating fractions into different formats.
