Our tutors are prepared to shape our SHSAT program to fit every individual student’s learning and personality type. Our programs are malleable, and our experience has equipped us to lead every student towards achieving his/her personal best on test day.
We approach test prep from a child-centric perspective, and are sure to cater to the needs of the human we’re working with, not only the student. We don’t try to make a child’s life fit into a test prep program; we make sure that test prep fits comfortably into a child’s life.
Our esteemed executive functioning program is interwoven into our test prep, ensuring that students will gain lifelong skills on their way to achieving their optimal SHSAT score. We’ll help you change schools, and we might just change your life along the way.
A Hartman Tutor worked with both my son and daughter, and helped each one get into Stuyvesant. Not an easy task! My kids couldn't be happier to be where they are now, and there is no way they could have done as well on that test if it weren't for the tutor Jesse and Alice paired them with. Professional, fun and effective. 5 stars!
