Test Admission Catholic High School
Small Groups for TACHS Prep in Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, & Online
I have prepared students for the Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools (TACHS) and scored in the 99th percentile in the analogous version when I took it on Staten Island. I earned a full four year scholarship to every Catholic High School I applied – St Joseph by the Sea, Monsignor Farrel, and Moore Catholic High School. We take many practice tests to idenfity areas of focus and compare to previous exams.
My style focuses on estimations, proportions, fractions, and simpler ways to do seemingly complicated math problems. Most students fret about the “no scratchwork” section but I show them how easy some mental math can be. Visual tricks like interesting puzzles from my “Bag of Tricks” and paper cutouts help elucidate the tricky “Abilities” section.
I can maximize your student’s chance to get into their first choice or maybe even a scholarship. I offer small groups for TACHS prep and occasionally do one-one-one tutoring for TACHS. The Test for Admissions into Catholic High Schools is every year in the beginning of 8th grade, but best results come from starting early. If they are preparing for the TACHS, they may also want to prepare for the SHSAT and/or HSPT (Regis)
I will be teaching a TACHS prep course at St. Joseph – St. Thomas School in Staten Island from July – August with two full practice tests.
