When should you begin SHSAT tutoring? Spoiler alert: don’t go overboard!

When a parent calls City Smarts wanting to begin SHSAT prep too far in advance, I tell them to call me back in the spring.

The SHSAT is very much a goldilocks kind of test. It’s a tricky, rigorous exam that does demand months of practice (from most students, at least), but too much tutoring is a certain recipe for burn-out.
