SHSAT Class for 7th & 8th Graders

Our SHSAT online classes combine the best parts of personalized education with the best parts of a group class. We match students of similar skill level, creating small groups of 3-6, so students can have the individualized attention they need and also learn from each other. The SHSAT is a difficult and competitive entrance exam for 8th graders. That is why we start motivated 7th graders in our SHSAT pre-prep groups. Class participants review math fundamentals, become strong readers, learn the rules of English grammar, and gain test taking expertise. Our tutors start with a diagnostic exam, cover important math and ELA topics, and teach test taking skills as part of their curriculum. Our approach is data-driven and includes full-length exams and homework to track students’ progress.

Henry is thoroughly enjoying working with Jordan. Up until now, Henry has not gotten any one-on-one teaching of coding so he's thrilled to work this way with Jordan. Henry has said it's super interesting, fun and he loves it.
