SHSAT Tutoring FAQ
Do your tutors help with every section of the SHSAT?
We have some tutors on staff who can cover both sections of the SHSAT (math
and verbal) and some who specialize in either one. We will work with you to
find a tutor who will be the best fit for your needs. During a tutoring session,
you can choose to cover all SHSAT sections, one section, or a mix of sub-sections
within mathematics (Algebra, Logic, Geometry, etc.). You may choose to focus
on the areas that you need particular help with.
How long are your tutoring sessions?
Our SHSAT tutoring sessions are typically 2 hours in length. Of course, we are flexible and we can extend the tutoring session if requested.
What is covered in a typical 2-hour tutoring session?
Every tutoring session is different. We completely customize our sessions to the needs of the student. A typical tutoring session might include an overview of the SHSAT, building familiarity with exam concepts, working through practice problems, or reinforcing tips and strategies.
How much tutoring do I need?
For students without prior SHSAT preparation, we recommend the 25-hour tutoring
program. However, you may build a custom program that fits your needs and
budget. The factors that you should consider when determining how much tutoring
you need are your score improvement goals, the amount of time before your
SHSAT test date, and your budget.
How much homework do you assign?
At Ivy Global, we understand students are busy with schoolwork and extra-curricular activities. During the session, the tutor will discuss with the student how many hours he or she can devote to SHSAT preparation and will assign an appropriate amount of homework. For weekly sessions, a typical amount of homework may be 1-3 hours per week.
When can I arrange SHSAT tutoring?
SHSAT tutoring can be arranged on both weekdays and weekends. The dates and
times (Monday-Sunday: 10am-9pm) are very flexible and depend on the availability
of our tutors. Most students arrange tutoring on a weekly basis, but we can
also accommodate less frequent tutoring as well as intensive preparation.
How do I sign-up for tutoring?
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 1-888-588-7955.
What is your cancellation policy?
For any tutoring session that is cancelled at least 48 hours beforehand, no
cancellation fee will be incurred. For sessions cancelled within 48 hours,
a fee equivalent to 1 hour of tutoring will be charged.
What if I am not happy with my tutor?

each of our tutors engaging and effective. If for whatever reason you are
not satisfied with your tutor, please contact us immediately and we will do
our best to make any necessary adjustments.
