Private School Admission Tests Including SSAT Preparation

"The Best Test Results in Toronto"

Forest Hill Tutoring provides an inviting and elegant atmosphere in the heart of the Forest Hill Village. Our entry and SSAT programs help students develop the skills and strategies that lead to outstanding test results and subsequent entry into the finest private schools in Canada. Our scores are the highest in Toronto and, at times, in North America. Forest Hill Tutoring is recommended by principals, teachers, parents and students.

Our highly qualified instructors have teaching, master's and doctorate degrees. Students typically receive instruction once a week for two hours and are given a binder of materials covering mathematics, reading comprehension, verbal analogies, vocabulary, and creative and persuasive writing. Students work closely with their tutors developing effective test strategies and completing many practice exams. Each program is tailored to meet the student's individual needs and can be adjusted accordingly.

Questions Parents Ask:

1. How long does it take to prepare a student for the entry or SSAT tests?

The time commitment varies, depending on the personal goals and academic ability of each student. Generally, students prepare for two or more hours per week, starting in August or September, and then take the test in December or January. We have some diligent students who begin in the spring. We also provide an intensive preparation for "last minute" candidates.

2. Do the students have the same tutor for every session?

If the student comes at a regular time, he or she will have the same tutor.

3. Do the students have a regular schedule?

Most students prefer to come at a regular time each week. However, we are very flexible and can accommodate students with irregular schedules.

4. How much homework is the student given?

The amount of homework varies, depending on the student's other academic and extracurricular commitments. Typically, a highly-motivated student completes 5-7 hours of homework per week.

5. Where does the tutoring take place and what are your hours of operation?

All tutoring is done on our premises, located at 439 Spadina Road, Suite 303, in the Forest Hill Village. We are a short, five-minute walk from both the St. Clair Avenue West subway station (Heath street exit) and the 512 St. Clair Avenue West streetcar stop. We are open seven days a week from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m.
