Middle and High School Entrance Exam Preparation


Summer is our favorite time here at AJ Tutoring! Students have greater flexibility and opportunities to catch up and get ahead academically. Whether that means strengthening your math skills or working through that summer reading assignment, our students get the 1:1 targeted support they need all summer long. Summer is also an ideal time to get a jumpstart on Entrance Exam preparation! Here at AJ Tutoring, we offer support in preparation for the SSAT, ISEE, and the HSPT. But our experts don’t stop there! Here at AJ we have identified the recent shift from an emphasis on standardized testing and how well students test, to focusing more on how students will fit in and thrive in a specific school’s culture. That is where our Proctored Writing Sample and 1-on-1 Interview Coaching steps in. In addition to strengthening your students’ math, grammar, and test taking skills we work with your students to improve their writing skills through targeted practice and coaching. Proctored writing, and strong writing skills will be critical for their long term academic success. Interviewing is another skill that will follow your students and play a role in their life for years to come, so it is important to develop and strengthen those skills early. If you are considering private schools for your students, then now is the time to call a Director today to identify how an AJ expert can support them throughout the process.
