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 2021.

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

*We have scheduled one in-person workshop in Seattle AND two online workshops for each course level.  In-person workshops will be very small and will require compliance with CDC Covid safety guidelines in place when the course begins; this may include providing proof of vaccination and/or mask-wearing and/or social-distancing, depending upon current CDC best practices for preventing infection and spread of Covid-19.  If circumstances require moving an in-person workshop to an online format, we will be able to easily switch gears and provide a live/synchronous course via the Zoom meeting platform.  After an initial adjustment, Zoom has worked great for us since COVID-19 restrictions began.  Students in our online, small group courses practice and interact with their teacher without masks using the virtual whiteboard; they ask questions and participate verbally from the safety of their homes, and without the need to fight traffic.

The purpose of these week-long workshops 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.
