Placement Test Prep

Summit Tutoring offers group and one-on-one preparation for students looking to advance through math in middle school and/or high school. This includes students currently in 5th grade and are seeking to advance through 6th grade Common Core math (or even further in the San Ramon School District, see below).

Summit will provide students with the conceptual knowledge and test practice necessary for them to pass their Placement Test. In 2017, over 80% of STC’s students passed! 

*Note: Passing the Placement Test is a team effort. STC will teach students concepts and provide them practice quizzes. Parents should keep track of student progress and make sure they are getting enough practice at home through completion of homework and additional review.

5th Test Prep: Students who are currently in 5th grade will have a school Placement Test around April that determines which level of math their student will be placed in 6th grade. This class is designed for current 5th graders who are very strong in math and are looking to score well enough on the Placement Test so they can be placed in 7th Grade Common Core Math or even further the following school year.

Our 8-month test prep class will prepare 5th graders to excel in their placement tests at the end of 5th grade (usually at the end of April). Students will learn 6th Grade Common Core Math, and they will take a weekly quiz. Quiz results will be regularly sent to parents so they can keep track of student progress. Homework will be assigned regularly.

Please see below for additional information on your student’s school district.

-Students seeking to join any 5th Test Prep class must first take a diagnostic test. There is an additional fee for this test, please contact our office for more information.
