Middle School Test Preparation

Middle school is often when students experience standardized tests for the very first time. To avoid the mixture of anxiety, lack of sleep, and tears, students should start early. In this summer course, students will work through resources and strategies aimed at some of the most common and widely recognized Middle School tests: SSAT, ISEE, and MAP. Each course requires 2-3 hours of homework, so students should be careful about taking both English and Math classes in one summer Term.
(NOTE: for long-term support, we recommend that students take private lessons after completing these courses.)

The reading and verbal sections of these standardized tests push students to answer and read several questions and passages in a fixed amount of time. Passages range from narrative to non-fiction to poetry, and the vocabulary questions task students with recalling synonyms, filling the blanks, and coming up with analogies. To improve their reading skills, students engage in various passage types, the process of elimination, question type strategies, and time-management techniques. When it comes to the verbal section, students learn over 100 test-centric words, roots, prefixes, suffixes, and test strategies for analogy and synonym questions. Students are expected to complete roughly 2-3 hours of homework per day. This is an intensive course!
