Parent Testimonial:

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.



What is the SSAT Exam?

The SSAT is the admission test required for many independent schools. This test is one important step on your path to an independent school education. Your SSAT score is just one part of your complete application to an independent school. However, while it is important, it is not the only criteria for admission.

The SSAT is designed for students in grades 3-PG and is administered on three levels (Elementary, Middle, and Upper). There are two types of SSAT test administrations: the Standard administration, given on 8 x Saturdays during the academic year at test sites worldwide; and the Flex administration, an individual or group test administered on any date other than the 8 x standard dates.

SSAT Character Skills Snapshot (NEW!)

The SSAT Character Skills Snapshot is a new, online test that measures a child’s character skills.

The test is designed to be done at home. It takes about 20-30 minutes to complete, and requires both Parental Consent and a Student Honesty Agreement.

For families signed up for our SSAT Exam Preparation classes, we provide further details of the test, along with sample questions and the benchmark categories. As the test is intended to be an honest evaluation of a child’s character skills, we do not provide tutoring for this.
