Welcome!  Our courses are designed to prepare students for both the ISEE and SSAT. We regularly offer two courses: one for current 5th and 6th graders, and one for current 8th and 9th graders.  For Elementary Level SSAT students, we offer customized private tutoring; stay tuned for a new Elementary Level SSAT course coming soon!

**While the coronavirus requires us to maintain social distancing, we are holding group courses via the Zoom Meeting platform.  Students will still be able to ask questions and participate verbally – from the safety of their homes.

Comprehensive ISEE/SSAT Course Features:

  • 9-12 hours of content and strategy instruction, divided into six class lessons, each
    lasting 1.5 to 2 hours long
  • Three full-length practice tests scheduled separately by families – to be taken after the final course lesson**
  • Three one-hour-long individual tutoring sessions scheduled separately by families – each hour will be used to review a practice test**
  • Class size limited to 8 students for lower and middle level courses and 12 students for upper level courses.
  • Customized ISEE/SSAT prep book(s) with hundreds of practice questions
  • We recommend scheduling an initial ISEE or SSAT diagnostic test before class begins – this provides a baseline score to monitor the student’s progress.
    • One ISEE or SSAT diagnostic test is free for those who have registered and paid for an ISEE/SSAT course.

**Please Note:  Practice tests and tutoring take place after completion of the group lessons, so that the student’s preparation continues as closely as possible up to the student’s official test date.  We schedule practice tests on Saturdays and Sundays only.   Tutoring is scheduled individually – seven days a week – based on each student’s and tutor’s availability.  (Although we do our best to accommodate your scheduling requests for the three test review appointments, some degree of flexibility on your part will be greatly appreciated.)

My daughter did really well on her test and most importantly, she was confident and not anxious. Thank you so much for your efforts.”
