How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?

The Secondary School Admissions Test, or SSAT, is an exam that is used for admissions decisions for certain private middle schools and high schools. The exam measures students' abilities in quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension, verbal reasoning, and essay writing. If your student is looking to gain admission into a prestigious private middle or high school you have had your eye on, they need to do their best on the exam. If your child is struggling with any of the topics covered on the exam, skilled SSAT tutoring in Washington, D.C., can assist them with their preparation. Varsity Tutors can help you get in touch with a professional SSAT tutor.

The SSAT is taken by children in grades 3 through 11 and is offered one time a month during the months of October through April, and one time in June. The exam has three levels: elementary, middle, and upper. The elementary level is taken by students in the third and fourth grades and allows students an hour and 50 minutes to complete it. The middle level is given to students in the fifth through seventh grades and lasts three hours and five minutes. The upper level is given in three hours and five minutes to students in the eighth grade and higher.

Session Summaries by SSAT Tutors

SSAT Tutoring review by Tara in Washington DC
The student and I went over the math problems he did for homework. He did great. We also did some timed math problems to help him get an idea of the pacing. He had extra time, and he should have plenty of time on the test to review his answer choices. We reviewed some concepts with angles as well. He also did one timed reading section to refresh on reading test taking skills. He got all the problems correct. Lastly, we went over synonyms and analogies. He has a great intuition for the analogies, and we went over the most common relationships on the test. I assigned him some homework from the verbal section.

SSAT Tutoring review by Alysa in Washington DC
Today the student continued her work through the arithmetic section. She was successfully able to work through the factions, decimals, conversion, percentage, and percent increase/decrease problems. She also learned exponents and scientific notation. We developed a plan for the math section. I encouraged her to go back to review root words and prefix/suffixes. After we go through the Algebra and Word Problem section, she will try the math portion of the practice test.

SSAT Tutoring review by Benjamin in Washington DC
Today the student and I worked on math word problems which related to algebraic equations. He asked about pulling the equations out of word problems, so we worked on that and finished our session with reading. We will continue to work on upper level math and reading in the future as he practices the verbal sections independently.

SSAT Tutoring review by Hillary in Washington DC
First, I had the boys work through the second half of the verbal reasoning section we began last time. They are both doing better on analogies- each only missed a few of the questions. I then had them work on quantitative, which they did fairly well on. I had time to work with the one student on two reading passages. He only missed one question! Overall I'm seeing great improvements in the boys' scores and I hope to see continued gains.

SSAT Tutoring review by Alyssa in Washington DC
The student and I had a wonderful session today. We really focused on math, and we got a lot done. We briefly reviewed what we had gone over before, and then we spent a lot of time on fractions/decimals/percents and touched on algebra. We converted between fractions, decimals and percents. We also practiced adding/subtracting fractions, multiplying and dividing fractions and decimals, as well as converting between improper fractions and mixed numbers. It was a very productive session!

SSAT Tutoring review by Adam in Washington DC
Since this was the first session, most of the session was dedicated to getting acquainted and comfortable with each other, assessing personalities, and evaluating the student's specific needs in terms of subject matter (so far, synonyms, analogies, percentages, and word problems have presented themselves). We also established our schedule of meetings and a tentative calendar of subject matter to focus on with writing on the docket for Wednesday and combinations of verbal and quantitative for next weeks sessions. I have also assigned her to follow two dictionary websites for their "word of the day" and word games to build vocabulary (and familiarize her with spelling). All in all, though, I believe she will benefit most from more exposure to the test itself and tips for taking it, so I will be incorporating practice tests into all of our sessions.
