How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?

If you are the parent of a grade school student who is planning on attending a private school, they may need to take the Secondary School Admissions Test, or SSAT. This is a standardized test that is often used by institutions to aid them in making decisions regarding admissions and placement. It is given to children between 3rd and 11th grade and consists of three sections: elementary, middle, and upper. A section is chosen depending on the test taker's current grade level, and all tests generally cover math, reading, verbal reasoning, and essay writing. Preparing for the SSAT may be overwhelming for students, especially those who have little experience with standardized tests.

Session Summaries by SSAT Tutors

SSAT Tutoring review by Rebecca in Sacramento, CA
The student and I went over the analogies subtest that he completed for homework. We went through step by step, analyzing and understanding each analogy, naming strategies as we go. The largest strategy he is working on is to understand and 'name' the type of analogy before even looking at choices. After great study skills conversations, we moved on to math subtest. Concepts covered: interior angles of triangles, quadrangles, other polygons, parallel lines cut by traverse and all of the angles that go along with it, naming triangles with points, construction of triangles using an unknown, and a lot of problem solving.

SSAT Tutoring review by Dana in Sacramento, CA
Today, the student and I continued going over vocabulary from the analogies and math. We looked at a couple of analogies that stumped the student and I explained the vocabulary to her that she did not know. I reminded the student that if she comes across vocab that she does not know (which will likely happen on a standardized test), that if she cannot eliminate some of the choices, she should skip it - only if she cannot decide on a BEST guess. For the remainder of the session, we focused on math. The student has some difficulty with creating her own equations to solve for an unknown variable. We reviewed that in addition to plugging in numbers to solve equations. It takes some repetition for her to fully understand the concept and I tried to show her different ways to arrive at the answer so she can choose the one that she feels most comfortable using. For homework, she should work on finding synonyms, choosing analogies, and continuing with her math practice problems.

SSAT Tutoring review by Channing in Sacramento, CA
For math, we reviewed order of operations by evaluating expressions with 5+ operations. We also covered factors, common factors, and greatest common factors. For verbal, we formatted a plan of attack for analogies: identify the relationship type, make a sentence bridge, apply it to each of the five word pairs.

SSAT Tutoring review by Gina in Sacramento, CA
On Sunday I had my second session with the student. We spent this session on vocabulary. I thought we may break the session into two parts focusing first on verbal and then switching to math but it became apparent the student does not know many of the words on the exam. The words are tough and on par with other exam words. She told me she likes matching words to their definitions so we made some practice sheets. She also said she would do some more for homework if I emailed her them. So far, we have gone over about 50 new words. Amazingly, she does remember them and can apply them. We had a review at the end of the session and she had not forgotten any of the words we covered. We scheduled our next meeting for next Sunday at 11AM.

SSAT Tutoring review by Aundrea in Sacramento, CA
We covered vocabulary and basic arithmetic on the test. The girls did wonderfully on vocabulary. I'd assigned them 21 words, and they did great when I quizzed them. We got through math vocabulary, addition, subtraction, and multiplication today. They did well on all, but they need to work on subtracting large numbers involving zeros.

SSAT Tutoring review by Tara in Sacramento, CA
The student and I went over some basic math topics such as absolute value and exponents. We added some vocabulary words for the student to put on notecards. We also went over his second draft of his essay. We looked at a new essay prompt and went over one example to use in the essay. He is to write out two more examples for that essay. Next session we will continue to review basic math concepts and add to his vocabulary list.
