The Huntington SSAT Prep Process
Our SSAT prep tutors begin the SSAT tutoring process by administering a full-length practice test to the student. The results of this practice exam give our tutors valuable insight into your child's strengths and weaknesses so that we can best tailor a unique tutoring plan to meet their needs. This targeted SSAT tutoring plan will develop the skills and strategies necessary to score well on the exam, while also instilling in them helpful test-taking, organizational, and time management skills they can use throughout high school and beyond.
Understanding the SSAT
For many students, the unknowns of what the SSAT actually entails and what they should expect come test day creates a great deal of stress and anxiety. Our SSAT prep course removes the mystery surrounding this high school entrance exam, informing students of exactly what they will encounter.
The SSAT is a standardized entrance exam that can be taken by students between grades 3 and 11, who are attempting to enter independent schools. Schools require prospective students to take this exam as a way to predict how they might perform academically within their school settings relative to other students.
The SSAT test is made up of four multiple-choice sections meant to measure student abilities. Because the SSAT is not an achievement test, it does not focus on memorized information. The four sections include quantitative math, verbal, reading comprehension, and writing, which are broken down into a number of subsections on the test. SSAT preparation that builds each student’s confidence across sections will be most effective in ensuring a high score.
Addressing the Sections of the SSAT
SSAT tutoring at Huntington Learning Center uses your child’s performance on their initial full-length practice SSAT exam as a way to inform tutors of the sections in which they might need special attention. We work with each student to build test-taking strategies that are in line with their unique learning style and that are most effective depending on the section of the exam they are completing. For example, the skills needed for the geometry or algebra sections of the SSAT are different from those necessary for the analysis of reading comprehension prompts. Our SSAT prep classes teach targeted approaches to test-taking, as well as addressing time management concerns.
