Effective Test Prep

SSAT, SHSAT, Pre-AP (Advanced Placement) Prep Classes  


The Learnatory Pre-AP classes in English I and /Algebra I are offered to students in Grades 6 – 8. These are not AP courses and they do not provide college credit or placement advantages. These courses are intended to prepare students to take Pre-AP classes in 9th grade. 


​Students are much more likely to succeed in an AP course if the student has taken a Pre-AP course preparing them for AP content and expectations. Pre-AP courses provide a targeted way for students to ensure that they’re building the requisite skills in advance.

  

SHSAT & SSAT Prep

The Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) and the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT) Prep classes identify and train students in effective strategies for test taking.


Practice test-taking and analysis help students fine-tune techniques for taking the test as they are guided and nurtured to build self-confidence.


Personal Tutoring

Using Assessment data, The Learnatory offers personalized tutoring by developing a plan that directly targets a child's specific areas of concerns closing gaps and building solid foundations in the areas of Math, Reading, and Writing. Tutoring is done individually and/or in small groups of 2 – 3 students studying the same academic subject. A variety of online, paper, and gamification activities are used to teach skills with regular and on-going evaluations.

A personal approach
