For students planning to apply to prep or independent high schools, Ivy Coach offers SSAT and ISEE prep. It’s difficult to find terrific tutors for the SSAT and ISEE exams as the great majority of rising high school students throughout the United States don’t take these exams. But we’ve secured the very best tutors for these tests; they’ve helped our students year after year greatly improve their scores to gain admission to the independent and prep schools of their dreams. What’s another way we know they’re good? Students’ parents ask if these same tutors can offer their children SAT or ACT tutoring a couple of years later.
As stated on our tutoring page, “The SSAT is a test administered to students in grades 3 through 11 on three different levels. The Elementary Level SSAT is for students applying to schools for grades 4 and 5, the Middle Level SSAT is for students applying for grades 6, 7, and 8, and the Upper Level SSAT is administered to students who are applying to high schools in grades 9 through 12 and the PG (post-graduate) year.” Meanwhile, the ISEE is “a test required of private or boarding elementary, middle, and high schools. There are three levels to the ISEE exam. The Lower Level ISEE exam is for students applying for admission to grades 5 and 6. The Middle Level is for students applying for admission to grades 7 and 8. The Upper Level ISEE is for students who are applying to high school or grades 9 through 12 and the PG (post-graduate) year.”
