Pear Tree provides a combination of SSAT / entrance exam preparation, as well as coaching for the student interview.
All of our Private School Prep team are equipped with Masters of Education degrees from UBC and SFU.
The Student Interview practice is led by experts in Vancouver’s private preparatory schools, who have worked for such schools and understand the academic / social requirements and the admissions process (see details on our staff!)
The SSAT / Entrance Exam preparation is led by an experience SSAT tutor with a Masters of Education degree.
While we do not guarantee that your child will be accepted by such schools, we offer the ultimate preparation for your child to ‘put their best foot forward’ (全力以赴).
*We consider preparatory schools as traditional schools that include Crofton House, St. George’s, and York House.

Paul has been working with our son on his preparation for an overseas school entrance exam since September 2015. The test demands strong writing skills and comprehension ability. Our son has been improving due to Paul’s strength in encouraging and guiding our son’s critical thinking and analytical skills. Equally important is Paul’s ability to connect with our son by engaging him with good questions and seeking smart responses. Finally, as a consummate educator his willingness to listen to parents’ concerns and effecting the desired outcome put us as parents at ease. We are pleased with our son’s progress and we look forward to more of Paul’s positive input to our son’s preparation for the exam.
