SSAT Tutoring

how it works

SSAT tutoring is an intensive, strategy-based approach to boost exam scores before application deadlines. Each lesson is customized to target a student’s weaknesses. The number of sessions needed is dependent on your family’s goals and timeline.

Sessions are held at our office in Pointe Claire or online. For new students, we suggest taking a practice test first, as a method of assessing your points of weakness.

The SSAT is an admissions test for high school students. It stands for Secondary School Admissions Test. It is part of your application to prep school. The SAT is an admissions test for university students. It stands for Standard Admissions Test. It is part of your university application and is normally taken in grade 12, when you are applying to university. The PSAT is a test that prepares students for the SAT, like a "pre-SAT", or a "practice SAT". Prep schools give the PSAT to students in grade 10 and 11 to prepare them for the SAT. It stands for Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test. Generally, you would not hand in your PSAT to universities — its main purpose is to serve as an introduction to the SAT. There are also opportunities to win scholarships/awards early on if your PSAT scores are in the top scores of your region.  
Yes, we do in person sessions at our office at 620 St. Jean, in Pointe Claire. We also tutor online.
Each tutor has their own availability and schedule. Many tutors can accommodated after-school hours and weekends. Please call or text 438 800 7069 for this week's availability. If you would like to drop in and visit the centre, we offer tours and meetings by appointment only (call or text 438 800 7069). If you come to the centre without an appointment, we may be occupied with other students. Check out images of the centre here.
If you are currently attending a French school, many prep schools will require that you also take an English proficiency test like the TOEFL or Duolingo. This applies to any student whose school operates in another language.  Minimum score requirements are generally 100/120. To understand how the tests are structured, how close you are to the minimum required score, or how to prepare, please contact us. 
No, you cannot use a calculator or dictionary. On the math section students have to do their calculations by hand. For the English sections there is no spellcheck or dictionary.
