“At Miles Smart Tutoring, we work diligently to pair our students with a professional SSAT tutor who will be able to instruct and guide them the best depending on what they need to be prepared for. Their tutor is going to assess their current understanding of the material and focus primarily on strengthening the areas of study that the student isn’t exceeding in and areas of study that the student may have not had the chance to learn yet in their school.”
Here's How Our SSAT Tutors Can Help
The tutors at Miles Smart Tutoring have diverse educations and experience that allows them to teach a varying level of material. Since the SSAT is going to cover a large range of material, having a tutor who is capable of applying fundamental instruction on unfamiliar material and following up with practice on those new foundations is going to set apart a student from their colleagues.
Our private tutors demonstrate test taking strategies like inductive reasoning and systems of elimination. In addition, they will work on eliminating test anxiety by administering mock exams that will resemble the actual test and allow the student to practice remaining calm and collected for the real SSAT. Investing in a private tutor for the SSAT will set apart students from others because their test scores will be more competitive than students who choose other methods to prepare.
While we employ a variety of methodologies and strategies, we emphasize the Socratic Method (a form of cooperative argumentative dialogue between individuals based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking) as it helps students think logically to find the answer. This method of teaching has future ramifications as it carries over to future classes and helps develop self-reliance amongst students. Like for example, While reviewing the math section, if a tutor sees a student is excelling at solving equations and other algebraic concepts but is puzzled on how to attempt to solve a geometry problem, they are going to work on instructing their student about geometry and assigning additional SSAT practice tests on geometry problems to strengthen their problem solving abilities. These are the kinds of strategies that are going to set students up for an extremely competitive test score that will assist them in getting into a high esteemed private school.

Proven SSAT Help for a Significant Score Improvement
Considering the fact that SSAT is going to cover a material that the student has not had the chance to learn in their curriculum yet, it is important for student who want to do well on the SSAT to get individual attention from a private tutor. The private tutor is going to guide their student through the unfamiliar material with ease.
Online SSAT Tutoring – The SSAT is an abbreviation Secondary School Admissions Test. It is a standardized test used by admissions committees at private schools and independent schools to decide which applicants should be considered for admittance. The SSAT scores of all candidates are compared to determine which students are going to be accepted or rejected from the institution. Because there are numerous students competing for a select number of seats at a private school, it is important for students who are highly interested in enrolling in a private school to have an aggressive study plan in place to prepare for the exam.
The SSAT measures basic verbal skills like vocabulary and analogies, mathematics skills like algebra and geometry, and reading comprehension. There is also a written portion, where a student has to prepare an essay, depending on which level of the SSAT the student is attempting. There are three different levels associated with the SSAT test. The first level is the elementary level SSAT which tests on the curriculum for the 3rd and 4th grade. The second level is the Middle Level SSAT which tests on the curriculum for the 5th, 6th, and 7th, grade. The third level is the Upper Level SSAT which tests on the curriculum for the 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th grade.
Students who are looking to enter into the next grade level need to take the test that will cover the curriculum for the grade they will have completed when they will, theoretically, admitted into their private school. In other words, if your student is in 8th grade and is attempting to enter a private high school for 9th grade, they would need to take the course that tests on the curriculum for 8th grade, which would be the Upper Level SSAT that covers material for grades 8th through 11th.It is ambitious to have a student attempt a standardized test that covers curriculum that spans three grade levels higher than the grade they are currently in. Fortunately, a private instructor can guide a student to ensure they receive a competitive score that will increase their likelihood that they will get admitted into the school they are aiming for.
Group Tutoring vs. In-Person Tutoring for the SSAT
There are prep courses that are available for the SSAT, which are group classes that help numerous students where the instructor has to divide their attention between all their students. For students who are serious about receiving high marks, they should elect to receive individual one-on-one tutoring. When a student has an individual tutor, the tutor is able to work at a pace that allows their student to retain and recall the material successfully. Furthermore, the student can ask questions about the material whenever they need too. Being able to go at a pace that is not too hasty is important because a large majority of the material could be being introduced to the student for the first time and needs to be practiced before moving onto more unfamiliar topics. For example, if a student has not had a geometry class but are taking the upper level SSAT, they are going to need to be introduced and instructed on a variety of geometric concepts prior to being able to successfully solve geometry problems.
