Hunter College High School Exam Prep

Our "Semi-Private" HCHS exam classes combine the best parts of personalized education with the best parts of a group class. We match students of similar skill levels, creating small groups of six learners max., so students can have the individualized attention they need and learn from each other. The Hunter College High School entrance exam is a difficult entrance exam for 6th graders that students have to be invited to take. It is typically given in January. Our tutors start with a diagnostic exam, cover important math topics, reading comprehension and essay-writing skills, and teach test-taking strategies as part of their curriculum. Our approach is data-driven and includes full-length exams and homework to track students’ progress.

What is a Semi-Private Class?

Semi-Private Class

Share the cost of a senior tutor with 2 to 5 other students and learn in a group setting! Students benefit a group because they learn from each other, hold each other accountable, and have fun together! We don't believe that classes of more than 6 students have the same effect, so we call our classes "semi-privates."

Private Tutoring

Private tutoring has its benefits too. For the most personalized test preparation services, you'll want to work with a tutor 1-to-1. The curriculum and learning style will be uniquely matched to the student. Many of our clients start with a semi-private class and continue with more targeted, private prep closer to the test date.
