SSAT Tutoring

SSAT tutoring helps students gain admission into the best elementary, middle, and high schools in the country.

With Growth Wise, students work one-on-one with an experienced tutor who is uniquely paired with them based on personality fit. Tutors cater to students’ own learning styles while working at each child’s own ideal pace.

Growth Wise tutors emphasize raise scores and make students more effective at pursuing their dreams long after standardized tests have finished. Grit and peak performance mindset are key factors that we emphasize and teach, and which impact any endeavor a student hopes to succeed in.

Our tutors work online via Skype or in person in Manhattan. No matter where you’re located, you can get the help you need.

We pay particular attention to what makes students and parents feel connected to their tutor, whether it’s the tutor recognizing a student’s particular emotional state one day and adjusting to make the student feel more comfortable, or calling a parent during the week just to make sure their hopes and anxieties around the SSAT are heard and responded to.

If you’re looking to score better results and get into the school of your choice, one-on-one SSAT tutoring with Growth Wise is the best choice you can make.

What Our Clients Have Said...

  • “As the mother of two children who have worked with Jim for their SAT and ACT exams, I have observed how unique and effective his approach is. Jim not only teaches the children the academic skills they require, but he also empowers them to make their own choices and develop their confidence in their own way. Jim’s attention to the individual pesronality of the teen and his ability to connect with them on their level helped them a lot through these difficult years. I am thankful Jim was in their lives.” – Einat B

  • ‘“Jim has mentored and tutored my teenage granddaughters Siena and Antonia for their ACT exams. Since Jim has been tutoring them, their results have been nothing less than phenomenal. Siena has gone from a 21 to a 30 on her ACT exam so far; equally important, Jim has instilled in Siena a sense of pride in her accomplishment. When she started with Jim, Siena was an unenthused, mediocre student. I do not believe in coincidence, but over the past year she has transformed into an enthusiastic, high-achieving student whose grades have improved from a B to an A- at an extraordinarily competitive school. They are both motivated by his coaching. Every session is followed up with unique emails quoting educators and philosophers on the necessary steps of how to focus and think in a positive way.” – Steve G
