Private Middle and High School Entrance Exam Prep Programs in Boston, MA

The ISEE or SSAT exam may be your child’s first encounter with a major standardized test. It can be intimidating, and if they head into the test with a lack of confidence, they may not be able to put their best foot forward. You can give your child the best chance at excelling on the test and in their high school career with SSAT or ISEE exam training for private schools. Our tutors will help build each student’s knowledge, skills, and confidence for the private school entrance exam.

ISEE Test Prep Program in Boston, MA

The ISEE exam is only the beginning of your 4th-to-8th-grade child’s middle or high school journey. This test can prove they are the perfect match for a particular private school, as well as pinpoint the areas in which your child needs a little more practice. By signing them up for ISEE exam training for private schools, you set them on the road to success, even beyond the entrance exam.

During our ISEE exam prep sessions, your child will learn basic and advanced math, reading, and writing skills. They will also learn valuable techniques and strategies for proper studying and test-taking. These skills will give them the confidence they need to not only earn a great score on the entrance exam for their private high school or middle school but also on other standardized tests they will have to take in the future.

In addition to learning critical test-taking skills, students will also have the opportunity to participate in ISEE test practices. During these sessions, they will take a proctored practice exam in an environment similar to the one in which they will take their ISEE test. By doing this, they will feel less nervous going into the real test and will perform to the best of their ability. The ISEE test practices are included with the costs of the test prep tutoring.

SSAT Test Prep Program in Boston, MA

Whether you’re hoping your 5th-to-8th-grade child will be accepted into a private secondary school, a prestigious boarding school, or the military, you may have learned they need to take the Secondary Schools Admissions Test (SSAT). To ensure they are 100% ready to sit down for the test, consider enrolling them in SSAT prep classes.

During our SSAT exam training for private schools, students will be exposed to material relevant to the exam, effective test-taking strategies, and proctored practice tests. Whether your child will be taking the middle- or upper-level SSAT, we will ensure they have a solid understanding of math, reading comprehension, synonyms and analogies, and essay writing.

As your child’s SSAT exam prep progresses, we will use their scores from the practice tests to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses. From there, we will personalize their tutoring to ensure they are learning in a way that matches their learning style. By adjusting the program as they go along, we are able to effectively address any problems and ensure they can boost their test scores.
