Tiger Mom Good or Bad

Who is Tiger Mom?

If you are reading this blog you came to find information on Test Prep for your kids.  You are one step closer to reaching Tiger Mom or Tiger Dad Status.  Lets start off by asking a few questions

Do you have to be Asian?  No

I might be Asian but you can be Caucasian to be a Tiger Parent.  You can be any race.  You just need to be a parent who cares about their child and is willing to do extra to make sure your child succeeds.

Do you have to be a Parent? No

You can be a grandparent or an Uncle or Aunt.  You could be a strong mentor to a child that you care for.  Blood or no blood, love is all that really matters to children.

Are you the type of Guardian who wants the best for their child? Yes

Are you willing to make sure your kids are doing everything possible to maximize their chances of getting into the best colleges in their futures? YES!!!

You ARE a Tiger Parent!!!

Tips on Tiger Parenting

Starting off the best thing that you can do as a parent is to make sure you have one shared goal.  You as a parent and your child should be on the same page as to what both of you want.  Kids at an early age don’t know what and why they are doing certain things.  It would be wise to have them do an assortment of different activities as they are growing older.

As your children get older, explain to them what your goals are for them and why you are having them do everything.  Have them research and learn about different colleges that might interest them.  The child’s goals must match up and align with your goals.  Otherwise, there will be a lot of fighting and arguing about the reason for doing all of the hard work for years upon years.

Your Reasons

Why do you want your child to work so hard?  Is it more important that your child  gets into to their dream school for them or for you?   I have met many parents who are willing and ready to tell others ALL of their hard work.  All the sacrifices that they made, never a word about  ALL the work the child did.  I’m sure you’ve met people out of the blue that will tell you everything that they have done for their child.  It is their accomplishment and not the kids.  Don’t be one of those parents.

Your not the one going to College

Remember, you are not the one going to college.  You are not the one studying hours upon hours for years.  Step back and make sure your children are happy and doing things that they like.  Kids need a nudge every now and again.  Kids don’t want to practice for hours.  Study for hours.  Balance is key.

Stars Aligning

When you are your child finally reach a point where years of work start coalescing then you have reached Tiger Mom/Tiger Child Nirvana.  You are doing everything that you need to do and your child is doing everything that they need to do.  A finely tuned parent and child machine that is going in one direction, the right direction.

Being a Tiger Mom is Good!

What is the SSAT?

Like many types of standardized tests the SSAT Test measures the aptitude of the student in these areas;

• Verbal
• Math
• Reading Comprehension

There is a short ungraded essay that is sent with the above results to private schools where the student is applying for admission.

SSAT Lower Level is for grades 5 — 7. SSAT Upper Level is for grades 8 — 11.

Many private schools require a student to sit for the SSAT prior to admission consideration.

SSAT Verbal

Verbal questions test your vocabulary, verbal reasoning, and ability to logically relate ideas.

SSAT Math

Math requires the student to solve problems in the areas of arithmetic, geometry, elementary algebra, and general number concepts.

SSAT Reading

Reading comprehension measures the student’s ability to understand a written passage.

SSAT.org Registration

Sanctioning body for the SSAT test, they administer the test with cooperation of local high schools.

SSAT Scores

SSAT Practice can and probably will improve a student’s score.

Scores for the SSAT reveal “Scaled Scores”, “Percentile Rankings” and “12th Grade

Predicted SAT Score” in the subject areas referenced above including total score.

Score Scaling occurs separately for the lower level test takers and the upper level test takers.

• 5- 7 Verbal/Quantitative/Reading Range 440 – 710
• 8-11 Verbal/Quantitative/Reading Range 500 – 800
• 5-7 Total Score Range 1320 – 213
• 8-11 Scoring Range 1500 – 2400

SSAT Percentile ranking yields two percentile scores

• Ranking against other students’ scores who have taken the SSAT during the last three years
• National Ranking that compares your performance against the national student population which includes students who did not take the SSAT

For example, if your Reading SSAT percentile is 80% it would mean you scored equal or better in the Reading section than 80% of the students of your gender and grade who took the test during the last three years.

Predicted SAT Score In the 12th Grade

SSAT scoring results provides you an estimated SAT score that you can expect during your senior year should you take the SAT.

SAT Prep: Test 2 Section 9 Part 1

SAT Test Proctoring


This is for the old SAT. I will make a new one on my channel here

Hello everyone, I’m an SAT tutor with 2400 on the SAT. Taking full-length timed practice tests is a great way to study for the SAT. This is essentially what you will experience if you take a full-length test. I have mimicked the time intervals, the breaks schedule and the 5 minute warnings that you are supposed to get when you take a practice SAT. Some proctors are terrible about giving the 5 minute warning at the right time.The one tricky thing if you are taking a practice test out of the Official SAT Study Guide is that one 25 minute section will be omitted because there is always one experimental section. I have not accounted for that in this video unfortunately. It’s not really possible to account for it because a different section is skipped in the various tests in the Official SAT Study Guide. If you wish to have a true to life 4 hour test experience just do a 25 minute section from a different test during that extra 25 minute block.
