STANDARDIZED TEST PREP
How Does it Work?
Our program begins with a practice test. Your tutor will use this exam as a diagnostic assessment to better understand your strengths and weaknesses. Lessons focus on classic test preparation techniques, content review by key topics, and deconstructing each practice questions to guide decision making. As the program continues, we regularly monitor your progress, and if necessary, make adjustments to our plan. The overall goal is to ensure that each student feels confident and prepared on test day, and that you score at or above his/her potential. We have a strong track record of leading our students; some of which have gone on to some of the most prestigious private and boarding schools in the world.
Do you tutor the verbal/reading comprehension of these tests too?
Absolutely! Our trained tutors can prepare you in all facets of the standardized tests.
How long does it take to prepare for my standardized test?
Under the guidance and leadership of our trained tutors, we recommend you devote 2 to 3 months of preparation for your standardized test. Most students choose to go with two hours a week of tutoring for 2 months.
Will the tutor be giving homework for the week?
Absolutely! You will be given relevant practice questions to work on. This will help you develop a greater familiarity with the concepts taught.
How much does it cost?
The SSAT/ISEE preparation package includes a diagnostic assessment to assess strengths and weaknesses, 20 hours* of private 1-on-1 instruction, and weekly homework relevant to the most recent tutorial session. $70/hr.
*Note: This is an approximate number of hours of preparation required. Some students require more, while others require less hours to be sufficiently prepared.
