ISEE/SSAT MATH WORKSHOPS

COURSES & REGISTRATION

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.

Summer Math Workshops are designed to help students:

  • who need math review and support due to limited math instruction in school this year – or –
  • who would benefit from a refresher of math skills they have already learned – or –
  • who intend to take the ISEE or SSAT exam in the fall and need more math instruction than our regular ISEE/SSAT course provides

*Unless otherwise indicated, we are planning to hold our courses in the specified office consistent with public health guidelines. We are capping the number of students to maintain social-distancing requirements in each location.  We will open additional sections when the in-office classes fill. If necessary, we will switch classes to an online format via the Zoom Meeting platform.  Students will still be able to ask questions and participate verbally – from the safety of their homes.

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.  Our regular full-length courses devote several class sessions to learning both content and strategy for the math sections, but 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.
