Summer Math Workshops, a.k.a. “Math Camps” will return in July 2020 – scroll down for schedules.

We will be offering several week-long Summer Math Intensive Workshops, intended primarily for students who plan on taking the ISEE or SSAT exam in the fall of 2020. Each workshop will be offered in our Seattle office for two different levels: one for students intending to apply to 6th, 7th or 8th grade, and one for students intending to apply to 9th, 10th, or 11th grade.

The purpose of the workshop is to provide students with an intensive review of the math content that is tested on the ISEE and SSAT exams. Due to the fact that both exams cover some concepts that have not yet been introduced in regular grade-level math courses at school, many prospective test-takers struggle with the quantitative portion of the ISEE or SSAT. Although our regular full-length courses devote several class sessions to learning both content and strategy for the math sections, we have found that some students require more time to master the math concepts they need to know in order to be successful on their exam. Our Math Intensive workshops are designed with these students in mind, but they are open to other students who would benefit from a brief refresher of math skills they have already learned before advancing to a higher-level math class in school.

Each workshop is one week in duration, and we will offer two sections for both levels.

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