About SSAT (Upper)

SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test)

Enter your child into the independent school of your choice.
Our experienced tutors help students get into the independent school of their dreams by dispelling the myths and mysteries associated with the SSAT examination. Our tutors will teach you the traps and tricks behind conquering the Quantitative, Verbal, Reading, and Writing Sample sections so that you score higher than you ever have. Our SSAT specialists implement evidence-based teaching approaches utilizing the most ideal study tools—real SSATs. Our SSAT specialists believe in the importance of reviewing both correct and missed questions with our students, explaining each clearly. We understand that mastering the thinking-process behind a correct answer is as effective as knowing why a question was incorrect. In addition, to target where students are disengaging, our tutors counsel students on the important, frequently overlooked details like time management during the exam, questions to skip, prior-night planning, and what to do the morning of test day.
