    Christina was absolutely wonderful. She went out of her way to win my son over and it worked. He looked forward to her visits and his speech improved so much under her care.

    We could not be happier with the services Valerie provided! She is very thoughtful and knowledgeable and provided significant guidance to support our daughter's speech development outside of our scheduled sessions. She established … More a great working relationship with her, and she will definitely be missed! Your business model is amazing and it was an absolute pleasure working with Valerie. I've referred your organization and Valerie to the Executive Director of our daughter's school and friends/colleagues who are in need of speech therapy services.

    Samantha Dalmas was fantastic! We saw her for a feeding therapy evaluation and while she doesn’t think my daughter needs more feeding therapy sessions at this time, but she gave me lots of tips to try.

    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020. She cared a lot about the boys and worked hard to create meaningful activities for them. The pod experience was invaluable … More for all of our families during a difficult year and we were so grateful to have found this partnership! We also want to appreciate Craig for helping to match us with a tutor on very short notice after we had cycled through a few folks who were not able to see the commitment through. Thanks for sticking with us!
  • Avatar S CL ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Dusty was the exact person we needed to help our child finish out the school year. So grateful to him for the way he steadily encouraged her and helped her stay on track and organized. He is flexible, responsive to our needs/schedule as … More a family, and a delight to be with. We are also thankful that Craig at Themba Tutors really "gets it" and partnered us with such a wonderful tutor who was a great fit for our girl.
  • Avatar Nicole May ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    My child worked with Gillian D virtually for math enrichment. She is an excellent teacher. She took time to understand my child's specific learning style and provided tools that would be engaging. She was kind and empathetic- really … More made it her goal to connect with my child and build trust and rapport. My child started the school year with confidence and without the typically "brain-drain" that occurs over the summer, thanks to Gillian.

    Our son started in a new high school, 100% remote, and was really struggling with Latin and Physics. I found Themba Tudors online and had an initial call with Craig, who was very knowledgeable, responsive, and found 2 amazing tutors for … More us. Both the Latin and the physics tutors were fantastic, connected with my son really well and helped him go from 'failing' grade to 'honors'! I will for sure continue using (and recommending!) Themba Tutors. Thank you, C, K, and W!

  • Avatar Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    As an adult student diagnosed with a learning disability during grad school, I knew I needed help dealing with my Master's program's demanding workload. I was seriously considering dropping out when I was referred to Themba Tutors. … More I was paired up with a wonderful tutor, Julie, who was a total lifesaver. I learned many techniques that I can utilize in the future as I embark on the next phase of my career.
    I can wholeheartedly say after working with Themba for two years that I would not have finished my program without this organization. And I am so thankful I selected them.

    We were introduced to a wonderful tutor: Mcedwyn. He and our son, a freshman in college, worked well together. As a result, our son’s grades significantly improved. The tutor taught our son subject content and various methods to effectively … More study for quizzes and exams. Our son was also taught time management and organization. My son’s experience with the tutor made the first year of college a less intimidating experience.
  • Avatar Jude Eugene ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    We have been with our tutor, Cailin Schiller, for two years, from 5th - 7th grade. She started as an executive functioning tutor with my daughter. From the start, she demonstrated a depth of expertise and a selective use of techniques skillfully … More adapted to my daughter’s ADHD and Math disability. Cailin made Math accessible and understandable to her in a way that even her teachers had not been able to do. She differentiated reading, writing and math tasks and assignments to tailor them to my daughter’s unique learning differences. Not only did it have an effect on her grades and her work efficiency, but she finally could do her work with less anxiety. Even my daughter’s teachers used Cailin’s guidance to modify their work with her. But most importantly, she became my daughter’s favorite resource. I can’t say how invaluable Cailin has been to my daughter’s progress and well-being. I’d recommend her a million times over. She is a gem.

  • Avatar Fara Jones ★★★★★ 5 years ago
    Themba Tutors provided a leaning specialist that was a perfect fit for my daughter. I told them what we were looking for and they delivered. Our tutor is responsive and flexible and makes it easy for my daughter to reach out to her own … More her own, which gives her an added sense of responsibility over her learning. As a therapist myself, I now regularly recommend Themba to my patients. A much needed and well provided service to the community!!

    The tutors at Themba are fantastic! Caitlyn McNeill helped our son academically, but also with getting organized in every subject, which he so desperately needed.

    We were very lucky to have found Edwouine Swift, my son's therapist through Themba Tutors. Thomas is 12 years old, and it is extremely difficult to get him to write. Edwouine just works her magic with him, he adores her and is so … More eager to follow her guidance. I have no doubt she will be a positive driving force in his academic future.

What is the SSAT?

The SSAT is a valuable tool used by private schools in the NYC metro area to evaluate applicants and make admissions decisions. With its focus on reading, math, and verbal skills, as well as the student’s writing ability, the SSAT is an important part of the admissions process for many private schools. Working with a qualified tutor in the NYC metro area can help your child prepare for the SSAT and increase their chances of achieving a high score. With an experienced tutor, your child can develop the skills necessary to understand the test, answer questions accurately, and write a strong essay. Investing in quality SSAT tutoring can be the key to getting into the best private schools in NYC.

The Elementary-Level SSAT lasts approximately 110 minutes, while the Middle and Upper-Level SSATs last approximately 170 minutes. The Elementary-Level exam has one break, whereas the Middle and Upper-Level exams have two.

The SSAT is available on paper and on computer. Middle and Upper-Level SSAT students can take the paper test on any of the normal dates listed below. Students in the Middle and Upper Levels may also take one additional paper test on a flex date. In addition, students in the Middle and Upper Levels can take up to two computer-based assessments at home or at a Prometric testing center.

The Elementary Level SSAT is presently only available on paper and can be taken three times each year, twice on the usual dates indicated below and once on a flex date.

Achieving success on the SSAT requires more than just knowledge and skills. Motivation and confidence play equally important roles in achieving top scores. Lack of confidence or motivation can affect a student’s ability to focus, leading to underperformance on the exam.

Here are some tips to help boost your child’s motivation and confidence on the SSAT:

  1. Start with a Positive Mindset: Encourage your child to approach the exam with a positive attitude. Remind them of their past achievements and let them know that they are capable of performing well.
  2. Set Realistic Goals: Setting realistic goals helps students to stay motivated and focused. Discussing and setting achievable goals with your child can help them create a roadmap for their success.
  3. Focus on the Process: Encourage your child to focus on the process rather than the outcome. This means focusing on the steps needed to prepare for the exam rather than just the final score.
  4. Celebrate Small Wins: Celebrate your child’s small wins along the way. Acknowledge their hard work and progress, no matter how small.
  5. Practice, Practice, Practice: Encourage your child to practice consistently. This not only helps them to build their skills but also increases their confidence and motivation.

Our tutors are experienced in providing positive feedback and encouragement to help students stay motivated and confident. We also offer specific strategies to help students overcome test anxiety, such as deep breathing exercises and mindfulness techniques. With our guidance and support, your child can excel on the SSAT and achieve their academic goals.
