Pricing & Packages

The packages listed below are based on 1-hour sessions. The frequency and length of sessions are flexible, though most students find one or two 1-hour sessions per week to be ideal. We require a first-time minimum purchase of three 3 1-hour sessions (the First Time Package) due to the significant amount of preparation that tutors perform in advance of the first few sessions. Although we have found the options listed below to be well aligned with our students' needs, we are happy to develop customized packages.

Most students use the three-session package to address finite areas of the exam or specific problem types. Because we believe that tutoring is an iterative process, three sessions is the minimum number that we offer. The three session package is a good way to get your feet wet, evaluate the amount of tutoring you’ll ultimately need, and see if you feel comfortable with a tutor. We are always happy to apply your first payment to one of our larger discounted packages.

Our preferred approach to the SSAT/ISEE offers complete coverage of the SSAT/ISEE. Our students learn all three sections of the test - verbal, writing and quantitative - in detail. We review general test strategy and time management extensively. Students typically complete no fewer than three (untimed and timed) practice exams. We dedicate three sessions to verbal review. We begin with a review of reading comprehension, addressing typical passage types. Reading techniques focusing on efficiency and content retention are central. Next, we devote several sessions to sentence completion and synonyms. We focus on expanding vocabulary, but we also address roots, prefixes, suffixes, and common SSAT/ISEE phrases. In the final sessions, we emphasize section strategy and timing.

We dedicate three sessions to the writing section. We devote sessions to analyzing the structure of successful essays, outlining essays, and writing essays based on prompts that have appeared on recent tests.

We have found that the mathematics section usually requires at least six sessions. We cover all subject areas, including basic arithmetic, algebra and geometry, as well as all question types. The final sessions more heavily emphasize section strategy and timing.

Because the SSAT and ISEE heavily reward repetition, we offer this package to students who would prefer to space their preparation out over a longer duration and complete additional practice exams. Some students find this package useful if they need to spend more time preparing for one section of the test. As in the Comprehensive Package, we offer complete coverage of the SSAT/ISEE. We cover every aspect of verbal, writing, and quantitative sections in detail. We review general test strategy and time management extensively. Students typically complete no fewer than 5 (untimed and timed) practice exams.

We dedicate five sessions to the verbal review. We begin with a review of reading comprehension, addressing typically passage types. Reading techniques focusing on efficiency and content retention are central. Next, we devote several sessions to sentence completion and synonyms. We focus on expanding vocabulary, but we also address roots, prefixes, suffixes, and commo SSAT/ISEE phrases. In the final sessions, we emphasize section strategy and timing.

We dedicate four sessions to the writing section. We devote sessions to analyzing the structure of successful essays, outlining essays, and writing essays based on prompts that have appeared on recent tests.

We dedicate seven sessions to the mathematics sections. We cover all subject areas, including basic arithmetic, algebra and geometry, as well as all question types. The final sessions more heavily emphasize section strategy and timing.
