SSAT Prep Miami Florida, Online SSAT Prep

Our Prepped & Polished SSAT tutor met with my 6th grade son via Skype just a handful of times after an SSAT score that was lower than we expected. She helped him immensely with the verbal section, timing throughout the test, as well as mindfulness exercises to calm his nerves. We are delighted with the results — an excellent score!

Judi M. (Medford, MA)

Our 6th grade daughter struggles with executive function and organizational skills. Alexis and I engaged in a lengthy detailed discussion of my daughter’s strengths and challenges, and he reviewed data I provided with extreme care and understanding of what our goals were as a family. In short, I wanted to enable my daughter to be more in charge of her homework planning and execution, which required a strategy that spoke to time management skills.

Alexis found a terrific tutor match for us. Allison has been instrumental in teaching our daughter time management skills in a way that speaks to her, and has taught her habits that work for her. It has been a blessing to have P&P in our corner and we look forward to a long-standing relationship with Alexis and Allison.

If your child is struggling with organization and time management, now is the time to teach them to get a handle on it, and P&P is the source to help you get there.

Daniel C. (Wellesley, MA)

“I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all your work with our son during the recent months in preparation for the ISEE.   He felt good about the test—there were certainly some difficult patches, but he weathered it all and he said he completed all of the sections in time (a fact that alone suggests that he made some good progress over recent months) and he thought he did pretty well.  There is little doubt in our mind that your work with him was of great assistance to him both in terms of fundamentals—as you know, he has not yet studied at school much of the mathematics that was on the test, so your work with him gave him a fighting chance on a lot of that material—and in terms of boosting his personal confidence.  Hopefully, he does well—but we of course shall see.   Thanks very much for all your help.”
