COURSES & REGISTRATION

Applying to private school? We have over 15 years experience teaching students how to excel on the SSAT and ISEE!

Why You Should Choose Sandweiss Test Prep for Your ISEE & SSAT Prep

Since 1998, Sandweiss Test Prep has been offering comprehensive test preparation services, academic tutoring, and admissions consulting to elementary, middle & high school students throughout the Puget Sound. We are a local company dedicated to providing high-quality instruction, affordable rates, and flexible learning options, all with the goal of helping your child succeed on their ISEE or SSAT.

Our course provides the most comprehensive support you’re likely to find when researching ISEE & SSAT course options. We’ll teach you to tackle every question type in detail, provide you with effective strategies for managing each section, and help you maximize your overall score.

In addition to offering expert test preparation, we can also provide guidance with selecting schools and writing application essays for families seeking admission to local private schools.

*During the summer and fall of 2021, we are planning to hold both in-person and online, small group ISEE/SSAT course options.

  • Online courses are held via Zoom with lesson times specified in synchronous time.  Zoom allows for students to ask questions, interact with each other and the teacher, participate verbally and use the virtual whiteboard – without having to deal with traffic to and from our office.
  • In-person courses will be held in our new Seattle office.  Students attending in-person courses will be required to comply with all WA State and CDC group safety guidelines in place when the course begins.
  • Students in both online and in-person classes will primarily take their practice tests via our online platform that provides an online answer sheet and automatic test-proctoring timer.  
    • For students taking in-person group courses, we will offer in-office proctoring on a limited basis for an additional cost; please let us know if you’re interested in this.

To ensure that each child receives the attention they need and deserve, we are capping the number of students who may register for both in-person and online courses.  We will open additional sections when the currently posted courses fill.
