How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?

If you're thinking about sending your child to a private high school or middle school, then the time to prepare for admissions is now. Many prestigious private schools require that students take the Secondary School Admissions Test, also called the SSAT. This test determines whether or not the admissions department considers a student academically compatible with the school. Since most students coming from public schools aren't familiar with this test, many parents turn to SSAT tutoring to help ensure higher test scores. Varsity Tutors' educational directors may help you connect with a professional SSAT tutor in Charlotte.

There are three levels of this standardized private school exam: The Elementary level, which is for 3rd and 4th graders; the Middle level, which is for 5th, 6th, and 7th-grade applicants; and the Upper level, which was created to test the skills of potential students in 8th grade or higher. All levels contain the same three main sections: Verbal Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, and the Quantitative section. There's also an essay question, which isn't scored, but may be sent to the private schools your child applies to that require SSAT scores. A quality tutor may scope out the areas where your child needs extra help and design a tutoring curriculum that focuses on those areas. Our educational directors may match you with an SSAT tutor in Charlotte who is knowledgeable in a host of alternative teaching methods to best teach to your child's particular learning style.

Session Summaries by SSAT Tutors

SSAT Tutoring review by Altagrace in Charlotte, NC
The student had quite the day, in terms of vocabulary and reading comprehension. For the vocabulary portion of our work, we played vocabulary bingo, which predominantly focused on the most recent vocabulary homework, as well as a few of the past terms we covered from other vocab homework assignments. Multiple bingo cards were used. This was done for the first hour of our session. For the first half hour of the second hour, we went over the verbal section of the SAT practice test that he had completed from two weeks ago, where he had to go over every single question, choosing all of the words with which he had the most difficulty. He ended up listing 14 words, which would become his new vocabulary homework. Once that was over, I had him complete the remaining 20 questions of the reading section of the practice SAT, for which the first half had already been completed (but broken down into parts). It was timed, but since he had not finished after the allotted time, I allowed him a few more minutes, so that we could finally finish with the section. We then went over his responses, and I provided him with his raw score of 23, meaning he would have scored between a 595 and a 625, had he actually taken the test. The answers from the previous 20 questions were combined, in order to arrive at that score. His homework: to watch the assigned video on the writing section so that we can go over what he learned (based off of the notes he took), as well as the two essays he had written last Sunday.

SSAT Tutoring review by Sabrina in Charlotte, NC
The student wanted to review how to solve for a variable. She understood how to solve an equation by plugging in a number into a variable, but didn't understand the inverse. We spent the majority of the session doing examples. The last 15-20 minutes was spent going over adding/subtracting fractions with different denominators. She got the concept right away.

SSAT Tutoring review by Will in Charlotte, NC
Today I reviewed with the student basic algebra concepts, converting from percent to fraction, and we reviewed perfect squares and square roots. She struggled a little bit with the concept and understanding of how to deal with negative numbers. She had a great attitude throughout the study session. We talked through how to break down square roots and how to make a percent a fraction to solve percent problems. She took a diagnostic test where she answered 20 out of 25 questions correctly and only missed one of the questions that she attempted - this was big progress from where she was before. I left the student with some practice questions to review.

SSAT Tutoring review by Joanna in Charlotte, NC
The student did very well on his quiz: 13/14. I made the analogies extra hard this time around so I'm not surprised he got one wrong. He knew the correct relationship, but I had him take it a bit further such that there were two ways the words related. We went over math, specifically circles. We went over the area and circumference of circles and the value of pi. He had gotten several questions incorrect on his math homework because he was not familiar with that yet. I then assigned two vocabulary lessons for homework. We went over the words and I explained the nuances and gave examples of the word uses. I also assigned a reading section. I said that I would be giving a comprehensive test when we meet in two weeks.

SSAT Tutoring review by Vickie in Charlotte, NC
The student wrote a free writing essay on the Gordon rule. She learned to convert decimals to percentages. And then she reviewed analogies, passing them all. Very successful session.
