Tough Competition for Private School Admissions

Most private schools in Metro Atlanta require applicants in grades 5-11 to report scores for the SSAT, Secondary School Admissions Test, to participate in the highly competitive admissions contest.

What makes SSAT so challenging? It’s designed to measure the verbal, quantitative, and reading skills that students have developed over time, both in and out of school. It emphasizes the critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are essential for academic success.

Dogwood’s highly qualified tutors work one-on-one with students to deliver key skills and proven strategies for the best SSAT scores:

  • We do in-depth analysis to identify each student’s needs, then customize each lesson to meet those individual needs.
  • We motivate students to strengthen their foundational math, reading, writing and vocabulary skills.
  • We provide effective strategies that students will use to answer difficult SSAT questions and manage testing time effectively.

Dogwood tutors have advanced degrees plus teaching or tutoring experience. Their higher qualifications and teaching experience lead to more focused lessons, custom tailored for your student’s unique personality and learning needs. With our help and guidance, students come to respect how their hard work will serve them well on the test and in school.

You may schedule SSAT Prep tutoring at the Dogwood learning center during the day or evening, including Saturdays and Sundays, by appointment.

At Dogwood, we encourage parents to stay informed and involved throughout the test prep process. After each private tutoring session, we send detailed progress notes to show what was covered and how your student performed.
