SSAT Tutoring

Answer a few questions to connect with your perfect tutor

Why Enhanced Prep?

Many tutoring companies claim that they can help students increase their test scores, but very few can support those claims and almost none of them focus on a student's ultimate goal - getting into their dream school. Nowadays, it takes more than a single strong test score to get into college. Students have got to have the grades and the test scores and then some. At Enhanced Prep, we provide a truly customizable approach to tutoring, focusing on each student's specific needs. We match students with the right tutor who can help them study for a biology test one day and prep for their upcoming college entrance exam the next.

Team-Based Approach

Paper versions of the test are available at testing centers for all three levels of the SSAT. Middle and high school students may take a computer-based test either at a testing center or from home. Testing dates are available throughout the year dependent upon grade and location. There are 5 standard test dates which are fixed as well as flex test dates which can be scheduled at different times. At Enhanced Prep each student has a whole team behind them dedicated to getting them into the school of their dreams and guiding them through the testing process.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I prepare for the SSAT?

Preparation for the SSAT can include several different tactics including flashcards, sample questions, and essay practice. As a result of the variety of questions covered on the SSAT, it is best to pace studying over time. Working with an Enhanced Prep SSAT tutor who will create a unique game plan will help a student find the preparation methods that allow them to successfully prepare over time.

Is the SSAT hard?

Different areas of the SSAT may be hard for different students. The elementary test is designed to cover information learned through 3-4 grade; the middle school test covers information from 5-7 grade, and the high school test consists of knowledge learned by 8-11 grade. Having assistance from an online SSAT tutor will allow everyone invested in a student’s success to understand what the student needs to be successful and will help make the test easier.

How many times can I retake the SSAT?

There are limits to how many tests a student can take in a given year depending upon grade level. An elementary student can take two tests a year but only one can be a flex test. Middle school and high school level tests may only take two computer-based tests per year, however, these levels allow for unlimited standard test retakes and one flex test on the paper version.

What can I bring to the SSAT?

When taking the paper test or a computer-based test at a testing center standard #2 pencils are required as well as an admission ticket. A student may have certain personal hygiene items with them as well including hand sanitizer, tissues, and feminine hygiene products. Food in a baggie and a drink bottle that can be seen through may both be brought into the testing area as well. Electronics, such as calculators, and any personal items are not allowed in the testing area and students may not wear coats or hats in the test area.

If the test is being taken on a computer from home a student must have working speakers, a microphone, webcam, and a Chrome browser. It is permissible for an examinee to have a see-through bottle for water in their testing space. Prior to beginning the test, there is a required sweep of the room via camera to insure prohibited items are not present. A test-taker is allowed two pieces of notebook paper with nothing on them and a non-mechanical pencil to use during the test.

How is the SSAT scored?

Each section of the SSAT is scored separately with both a scaled score which will display a given range of all possible scores and a percentage score that will display how the test-taker did compared to other test-takers. There is also an overall score that combines all the section scores together which also contains both a scaled score and a percentage score. Each school will have different score requirements for admission.
