SHSAT Tutoring in NYC
Clocking in at 3 hours with 114 Math and English questions to complete, the SHSAT is probably the longest exam an eighth grader has ever taken. And because 30,000 kids take the test every year, but only about 6,000 can be accepted to one of New York City's 9 specialized high schools, the test is difficult by design.
Starting with a diagnostic test, we develop a personalized plan for each student that includes test taking strategies, learning or refreshing subject matter, and a study plan for when the tutor is not with the student. For many young test-takers, the most difficult components of the exam are the reading comprehension and grammar questions of the English section and the time-crunch on the Math section, best tackled through strategy and practice problems drills.
From learning style, to skillset, to focus and attention, our tutors are often expert test-takers themselves, and will help your child fill in the knowledge gaps and build the confidence needed to overcome the testing anxiety that often is associated with the SHSAT. At IVY, we believe every child is unique and benefits from being matched with the right tutor who will connect with the student and help open new doors!
