Private SSAT Tutoring: Industry Leading SSAT Score Increases

Home > Test Prep Tutoring > SSAT Tutoring

A Letter From Our CEO

Dear Parent-

As graduates of Sidwell Friends and Andover, my co-founder and I understand the benefits of a strong private school education. While I may not have recognized it at the time, each year I grow more aware of just how valuable my time at Andover was - both in terms of the education and perspective I gained, and the doors it opened for me.

If you and your child are considering private middle or secondary school, a strong SSAT or ISEE score will be a critical element of your application. We have been preparing students for these exams for years, and believe our one-to-one tutoring is by far and away the best approach for students in this age group.

How Our SSAT Tutoring Works
Like all of our test preparation programs, your child’s SSAT program begins with a full length practice test. Your child's tutor will use this exam as an assessment to better understand your child's strengths and weaknesses.

Lessons focus on classic test preparation techniques, content review, and practice. As the program continues we regularly monitor your child’s 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 your child scores at or above his or her potential. We have a strong track record, and our students have gone on to some of the most prestigious private and boarding schools in the world.

The Keys to Our Success
Much of our success as a national leader in SSAT tutoring stems from our dedication to creating a customized SSAT course for each student - one which addresses that student's unique needs and capabilities. With a StudyPoint SSAT tutor, your child will receive the personalized attention he or she needs to score highly on test day.

The second key factor is our instructors. Tutors from our staff who have demonstrated exceptional results with other standardized testing formats and who have experience working with younger students are invited to undergo additional training on our SSAT tutoring program. Our SSAT tutors are a diverse and elite group of educational professionals who have a passion for helping children succeed.

And finally is convenience. Whether you choose to work with one of our in-home or online SSAT tutors, your child will be able to work from the convenience of your home. This means less hassle and logistical headaches for you, and more time on task for your child.

I invite you to learn more about our SSAT tutoring. We're very good at what we do, and we would welcome the opportunity to work with your family.

Dear Parent - the last year has presented challenges on so many fronts, and perhaps nowhere more so than at school. For a generation of kids who already feel more pressure than any before them, the pandemic has thrown everything into disarray - and in doing so has dramatically increased the anxiety around school and college admissions.

Against this backdrop, the most important thing for you to know about StudyPoint is that we're a national leader in both online and in-home tutoring. We've been doing in-home tutoring since the 1990's, and began offering online tutoring a decade ago. In total we've completed more than 650,000 hours of in-home tutoring and over 500,000 hours of one-to-one, online instruction. 

In most locations, if your family is ready to move back to face to face instruction, we have fully vaccinated tutors who are able to meet with your child in the convenience of your home.  If you prefer online, we have a great team of instructors who can meet with your child in our custom virtual classroom that was purpose-built for live, online tutoring. We've invested heavily in custom technology to make online instruction more effective, and in a typical year more than half of our programs are online.

And keep in mind that through years of collecting data we have found that our in-home and online student outcomes are basically identical. Whichever format is the best fit for your family right now, you can have the peace of mind that your child is working with a national leader.

We're your partner in navigating these challenging times and ensuring that your child feels like things are under control. We're here to help, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you need it.

An Approach that Addresses Your Child’s Specific Needs

When a program is designed to address the individual needs of each student, it is called Differentiated Instruction. We’re a leader in Differentiated Instruction and have structured our programs to create a personalized learning path for each student. This means your child’s SSAT program will focus exclusively on those areas where he or she needs the most help. We accomplish this in three ways:

One-to-One Tutoring

Private tutoring, by definition, is Differentiated Instruction. A private SSAT tutor can focus on your child’s specific strengths and weaknesses and move through content areas and strategies at a pace that is appropriate for your child. And since tutoring provides a safe environment for your child to ask questions and admit when he or she is confused, the instructor is well positioned to identify and address problem areas.

SSAT Practice Tests

Before meeting with the tutor, your child will take an initial Practice SSAT. This exam sets a baseline for the program and gives the instructor a sense of your child's strengths and weaknesses. Over the duration of the program your child will take at least two more full length SSAT practice tests, and the tutor will use the results from each to assess progress and continue to tailor the program to your child's specific needs.

Custom Curriculum & Personalized Homework

We built our SSAT curriculum from scratch with the goal of creating a program that is customized for the unique one-to-one tutoring dynamic. Likewise, since homework is an essential component of test preparation, one of your tutor's key responsibilities is reviewing and assigning targeted homework. The more you practice the better your scores, especially when that practice is customized to your child's needs.

How We Achieve
Our Industry-Leading Results

Proprietary Curriculum

We're experts in the SSAT, and our in-house curriculum development team created our own proprietary SSAT program.

Program Oversight

Your Program Manager will monitor your child's progress and, if necessary, work with you and your tutor to make adjustments.

Expert SSAT Tutors

We're extremely selective for both intellect and teaching ability, and unlike many companies we provide comprehensive training.

Matching Process

We'll work with you to find the right tutor match: someone who can explain difficult concepts and motivate your child.

SSAT Practice Tests

Practice and familiarity are essential to earning a stronger score, so we provide at least 3 full-length practice SSATs.

Time on Task

Between the tutoring, homework, and practice tests your child will spend 25-30 hours learning and building confidence for test day.

You (and your family) are busy

To be effective, an educational program has to work with your family's schedule. We make life easier by bringing the tutoring to you through two convenient options:

In home sSat tutoring

Our flagship program, which we launched in the late 1990's, our in-home tutoring option provides you with the unparalleled convenience and personalized attention of a private SSAT tutor who will work with your child right at your kitchen table. All lessons are one-to-one, and your instructor will ensure that each session is highly focused on your child’s unique needs.

Online SSAT Tutoring

Instead of meeting at the kitchen table, your child and the tutor meet in a custom online learning environment. This innovative tool enables them to talk through strategies and complete practice problems, just as they would on a workbook at your kitchen table. Online SSAT tutoring replicates the in-person tutoring dynamic, and it’s remarkably effective.
