SSAT & ISEE Prep
Innovative, creative, and successful tutoring utilizing strategies that achieve results
Score At The Top provides students with the most innovative, creative, and successful tutoring for the SSAT and ISEE. Our cutting-edge SSAT and ISEE strategies achieve results that speak for themselves. There is no one better than Score At The Top for preparing students for the SSAT, ISEE, and other standardized tests! Our SSAT and ISEE curricula were designed by Score At The Top founder, Judi Robinovitz, who worked for Educational Testing Service for 23 years and consulted to the College Board for whom she wrote their first test-prep software and strategy chapters of their first test-prep books (which the Board scaled back because Judi’s strategies were too insightful!). No other SSAT/ISEE-prep provider can boast of a pedigree like ours.
Do more than just practice... Learn SSAT and ISEE test-taking strategies from the experts:
Do you want the most efficient and effective SSAT or ISEE prep for your child? Then our private tutoring program is the right choice!
Our SSAT and ISEE tutoring sessions are designed to make test-takers more comfortable with the test-taking experience, to increase their scores and self-confidence, and to teach skills that are as important in school and life as they are on the SSAT and ISEE. Our interactive sessions focus on SSAT or ISEE familiarity, content, and the test-taking strategies needed to score at the top of their potential. We move along at a comfortable but lively pace that offers constant opportunity for questions and answers. We begin with an overview of the SSAT or ISEE and proceed to introduce the most effective strategies for each of the test’s question types in reading, math, and writing skills. As each question type is examined, students use their newfound strategies to solve and then discuss actual SSAT or ISEE questions. Because these tests emphasize critical reading and writing, it’s especially important to heighten students’ awareness of the reading, vocabulary, and grammar skills needed for the SSAT and ISEE... as well as in life. Thus, we take a long-term view, motivating students to become word conscious and showing them how to work towards improved critical thinking as well as active reading and writing skills. A thorough review of the most commonly tested math concepts is integrated into the SSAT and ISEE curricula, with significant emphasis on effective shortcuts, time-saving approaches, and valuable checking strategies. Students do homework in preparation for each session; that homework typically consists of a full-length actual SSAT or ISEE or selected test sections, vocabulary-building, math drills, and/or outside reading. With confidence-building incorporated into every session, Score At The Top students truly become test smart!
Because we firmly believe in collaboration and close contact with parents, our tutors email them a summary report after every SSAT or ISEE tutoring session.
Matching your learning style and personality to a great tutor is our top priority. Our tutors take the SAT and other standardized entrance exams every year and score in the top 5% – so they truly understand the test-taking process!
Some students like to prepare for the SSAT and ISEE with a compatible student whose needs are similar. In addition to creating “friendly competition” with a peer, semi-private students receive virtually the same individualized attention as private students, but at a reduced cost.
