Our popular Test Prep Instruction is designed to acquaint students with the concepts and skills needed to analyze and solve typical questions from all test sections on both the SSAT and ISEE Admissions Tests.
As students gain proficiency and confidence with the concepts and strategies presented, they will be offered the opportunity to engage in more complex problem solving and practice these skills in timed test-taking situations. Each student will receive a complete SSAT/ISEE Course Book and Vocabulary Cards, containing background SSAT/ISEE information, strategies, skill lessons, and practice items for each of the test sections at all levels. Private individualized instruction has proven to be a very effective approach in preparing our students to perform confidently and successfully!
