The Best Test Prep on the Main Line
When it comes to preparing for the SSAT, your child deserves the best. That’s why our tutors are the highest-rated on the Main Line.
Here are some things that set us apart from the competition.
One-size does not fit all
Our tutors will identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses and develop a customized study plan that’s tailored to their needs. We source that data from practice test sections we assign students throughout the week. This allows us to speak to what your child truly needs, and not spend time on what doesn’t matter.
You’re in the loop every step of the way
We believe that open communication between parents and tutors is essential. That’s why from the first to the final session, we provide detailed progress reports so you can see your child’s areas for growth and successes! With our help, your child will be ready to take their test with confidence – and you’ll be there cheering them on every step of the way.
