Whether your child just needs help with test skills, or also needs to work on vocabulary, arithmetic, or interview skills, Test Your Best is here to help.

The ISEE and SSAT tests can be daunting for parents and students. Let Test Your Best guide you through the admissions process from start to finish.

The first step is usually a detailed phone conversation with TYB’s Founder, Jay Lipman, to discuss your family’s needs and decide whether your student will work with Jay or with one of our other fantastic tutors.

Next, we schedule a Family Consultation. This initial Family Consultation is an integral part of our process and involves the student and at least one parent. During this session we get to know the student’s testing and academic history. We discuss goals and develop a personalized program that the student can use to start moving toward those goals right away.

Our expertise often allows us to accomplish in only a few hours what might take much more time to cover with a less experienced tutor.

Tutoring sessions following the Family Consultation can be scheduled as frequently as desired, at a convenient time for the student.

It is typical for the Family Consultation to take place in August or early September. By mid-September we are usually fully booked through the December/January ISEE and SSAT testing season, although we can sometimes accommodate new students with particularly flexible schedules.
