How our test prep works
DETERMINE BASELINE & GOALS
First we establish your baseline score, either through a prior test or a new practice test. We’ll also discuss your admissions plan and timeline.
ESTABLISH A PLAN AND START PREPARING
Next, we’ll create a plan and your tutor will implement it with you. Sessions will occur regularly (with the same tutor) that take the stress out of the prep process while boosting your score.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE ON TRACK:
Once every few weeks we will reevaluate your progress and refine the study plan and tutoring to improve weak areas.
A Typical Test Prep session
Your tutor will review any prior “homework” with you, noting any errors so you recognize and avoid them in the future.
Your tutor will teach you the academic concepts covered by the exam. These might include math, science, reading comprehension, grammar, writing, etc.
It’s not enough to just learn content. Successful students understand how to recognize “patterns” in questions and avoid getting tricked.
You’ll learn how to combine content and strategy to tackle any question on the exam.
Your tutor will assign specific sections of the exam based on your session, and full-length exams (less often) to make you familiar with the test-taking environment.

Online tutoring occurs via our convenient online lesson space. This is private tutoring (in real-time) just like having an in-person session—but it occurs remotely!

Common Challenges with the SSAT
The SSAT exam is a major task that necessitates extensive preparation and patience. Poor planning may have serious consequences. Since the SSAT is likely to be an exam that most students have never taken before, they may need to study more and prepare in a particular way to succeed. Students must learn mathematics, reading, and verbal comprehension, as well as essay composition, which is no easy task. Preparing three months before the exam and developing a learning and test-taking strategy will be extremely beneficial. At TutorNerds, we match you with a fantastic tutor who will take a personalized approach to your studying.
