We will ensure that your child gets the individual attention they deserve, which will help them concentrate on the parts of the test they really need to work on. We’ve found that many test prep curricula have students study for the ISEE, SSAT, HSPT, COOP, or TACHS simply by doing set after set of practice problems. It’s like trying to learn an instrument just by playing songs rather than practicing scales or chords. You aren’t truly mastering the fundamentals.
When a slightly altered version of a practice problem comes up on the test, it can totally throw the student off. We have students take a few practice exams to find out what their weak areas are. Once those have been identified, the focus is to take a step back and actually dive deeper into the concepts that need work.
In addition, we will hold your hand through the admissions process and applying for scholarships where applicable. We will also prepare your child for the school interview going over everything from body language and dress to appropriate questions to ask, commonly asked questions and how to send a personalized thank you as a follow up.
