Our teachers specialize in specific subject areas and can meet the needs of students across the grade levels. They help students develop academic skills, motivation, and confidence needed to achieve success in school.
Additionally, our teachers are experienced working with students with executive functioning and other learning challenges. Our approach is highly personalized, and we devise and adjust a working plan with parents and students to meet specific needs.
As our students gain proficiency, they become more motivated and confident, and as a result, they become independent learners.
ISEE/SSAT Test Preparation
Through our one-on-one service, students develop successful test results to solidify their applications. We review the test format for the ISEE or SSAT, and teach students test-taking strategies and specific academic skills in order to strengthen their scores. Additionally, we assess academic strengths and weaknesses. Then we target specific areas for improvement. Student’s skills are reinforced through repetition and exposure to multiple problem types presented on tests.
In addition, we consult with parents and students regarding the timing of the admissions test. We interpret the scores to help parents gain a better understanding of where their student’s testing achievement stands. While scores are important, we take a balanced approach. We know what scores are needed to be considered for day and boarding schools and we work with families to develop practical goals.
College Test Preparation
We work with students to review the ACT or SAT test format. Then, we teach students test-taking strategies. All of our sessions are highly personalized. Specific areas are targeted for improvement and assigned practice problems are given to reinforce skills. Additionally, we encourage multiple practices by completing practice sections and full practice tests to ensure progress is made.
We understand which scores are necessary to produce a competitive edge at the colleges and universities. This information is used to guide students as they develop practical goals and a plan to achieve their targeted scores at the schools on their list. Our teachers continue to assess student’s progress and provide feedback throughout the process.
