Class Experience

The Spring SHSAT Prep course is seven sessions and provides an in-depth overview of the math, verbal, and grammar content tested on the SHAT. Students will learn strategies specific to each section of the test, and will practice every question type to master the skills and content needed to succeed on the SHSAT.

This course is appropriate for students who are just beginning to prepare as well as for those who took our winter course. Our Spring SHSAT prep course is ideal for students who are planning to transition to private tutoring in the summer or fall.

We begin the course with a diagnostic mini-test for both the math and verbal sections of the test (the mini-assessment is for instructional use only, we do not provide score reports). Once we have scored the tests, we will structure each class according to the needs of the group. Homework is assigned after each lesson to make use of the students' time outside of class, and to allow students the opportunity to practice the strategies and skills that they have learned in class. At the conclusion of the course, we offer a practice test and will return a detailed score report so that families may use the results to determine next steps in their student’s prep process.


IMPORTANT NOTE: After registration, please be on the lookout for your order confirmation email. All registered students will need to purchase a test prep book for the course (the link will be included in the confirmation email)

My son said his Instructor,Mr.David Rice is very nice and his explanation is very clear.


My son wants a little more challenging math. (If he could solve the math problem quickly....he gets distracted while he is waiting for other kid’s answer)

The ELA teacher did a decent job at making the zoom calls interactive - by having students enter possible answers into the chat.


Lecturing is never the way to go. If you are going to continue to hold this class via Zoom, you MUST engage the students. My daughter was bored and not motivated to learn - especially from the Math teacher, who did very little to interact.

The teachers were very through in their teaching. We mainly had problems of logging on. Also the homework assignments were not posted promptly or Ronin 80% couldn’t log on to retrieve it. There’s either issue of him not being listed or teacher posted on Thursday (two days before their lesson on Saturday morning.)


I know the lesson starts at 10am but a lot of time Ronin has to wait up to 5 minutes in the waiting room before he could join. I suggest that the teacher starts inviting kids earlier so it doesn’t eat into the lesson time. Because no matter what the teacher log off right at 11 promptly but it doesn’t always start promptly.
