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.

*We are planning to offer both in-person and online (live via Zoom) options for ISEE/SSAT courses in the summer and fall of 2021.  Whereas in-person courses are preferred by some, we’ve found that Zoom also allows for students to ask questions, interact with each other and the teacher, participate verbally and use the virtual whiteboard – from the safety of their homes and without having to deal with traffic to and from our office. 

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.
