At Bright Kids, we have a teacher-approved methodology that delivers results. We have successfully tutored hundreds of children for standardized tests and have delivered the best results. For example, in 2010-2011, 90% of our students qualified for the Gifted and Talented programs in NYC. Our ISEE students have shown an average increase of eight points across the four stanine score sections of the ISEE exams.
We offer a highly customized, systematic approach to test preparation. Regardless of what test your child is preparing for, our process always starts with an initial assessment or a diagnostic. Based on the assessment or diagnostic results, we create a personalized curriculum to compliment the child’s strengths and support his or her weaknesses. Our test preparation carefully pairs our clients up with a contracted tutor based on the child’s ability level, the test he or she will be taking, and his or her learning style. We continuously adjust the curriculum to fit the child’s current needs and assess along the way to track his or her progress.
Our test preparation offers tutoring sessions one-on-one and take place in your home. We also have availability in our main office, should you prefer to have the sessions there.
For those parents who want to work with their children on their own, aim to supplement their tutoring sessions, or reside outside of New York City, please visit our books page to peruse our test preparation publications. We also offer online skype/whiteboard tutoring for students as well.
We currently offer test preparation for the OLSAT, ERB (WPPSI-III and WISC-IV), Stanford-Binet 5, CogAT Form 6 & 7, NNAT®2, CTP-4, ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, magnet school exams, and the New York State Exams as well as for a few specific tests such as the Hunter and NEST middle school entrance exams.
