Preparation for the rigorous high school entrance exams in New York such as the Test for Admission to Catholic High Schools and High School Placement Tests has already begun. Contact me to talk about how we can get the best results from your student. Sixth and seventh grade is a great time to start, not only because of the impending high school entrance exams but also because grades in school in 7th grade matter heavily for entrance into most high schools. Most topics in Algebra, Physics, Chemistry, Math, and Calculus rely on concepts learned/mastered around 7th and 8th grade.
John Zaborskis also teaches a summer TACHS course at St. Joseph – St. Thomas in Staten Island.
