I am the mother of five adult children, and at one time, I had four children in elite independent schools. I know the SSAT exam inside and out. Having helped serious students get accepted to private day and residential schools for more than 25 years, I know precisely what you need to do to get the acceptance letter you desire. The SSAT is comprised of a Verbal Section, and Quantitative Section, and an unscored essay. The Reading Comprehension section consists of 40 questions based both narrative and argument reading passages. I give my students a ton of strategies to employ on the SSAT, but I also make sure that they have mastered the content which is tested. The analogies section drives most students crazy, so I’ve developed specific strategies you can employ – even when you don’t know the meaning of one or more of the words. Like most standardized aptitude tests, the SSAT is very heavily vocabulary-driven, so I start with a demanding program of studying roots and prefixes as part of a vocabulary-building program. We also do a thorough review of the mathematics that generally is generally tested on the exams. If you want an SSAT tutor, you need look no further. Just contact me, and let’s get started.
