Saso HSPT Prep Testimonials

 

Parent Testimonials:

We know that your class helped prepare our son for the HSPT, especially with the time management and what to expect. He felt confident when he
 came out from taking the test. We have already recommended
 your course to current 7th graders.

– Sylvia D., 2017

Noah walked away from his HSPT feeling very confident and subsequently worried less during the wait for the results! He got accepted to all the high schools and will be attending Bellarmine, his first choice school! He was humbled and grateful he got accepted to all of them and we know your HSPT course helped him achieve this goal. With heartfelt gratitude

 - Ellen. D. 2017

 

Thank you so much for the help you and your team not only provided my daughter, but also to the hundreds of other children that have taken your courses. As you know, trying to get a straight answer from a young adult is like pulling teeth, but overall what Ava mentioned on more than one occasion was how the practice tests being administered helped prepare her for the actual test. Also, the review work given to her to do at home kept the material fresh in her mind. I will definitely recommend your course to family and friends and when my youngest is next in line to take the HSPT, we will be signing her up with SASO. Thank you for all the work you do.

- Marcello A. 2017

 

Zachary took the test last weekend. His words when I picked him up from the test were “I am so glad I took the SASO course.” He said it was a lot easier for him and that it took the stress away from him. My wife and I appreciate what you taught Zachary and getting him ready for the test. It was money well spent. Thank you.
–Jim M. 2017


Your course was exceptional. It really helped our daughter. After each class, specifically math, she understood many of the concepts that she was not understanding or getting wrong. She regularly commented how her regular teachers would confuse her while the folks at your program made things simple and easier to understand.
- Arthur B. 2017


We appreciate all the help and information you provided Shyna in preparation for the HSPT. You have an excellently conducted course. Shyna definitely benefited from doing your program. Thanks!

- Sandhya B., 2016

This class made a huge difference in our son's confidence and ability to effectively get through all the questions in time. We saw the most improvement in his math and vocab skills. Thanks again for running a great program! We'll see you again when our 6th grade daughter enters 8th grade! Thanks!

- Stephen I., 2016


Good review from my son. He told me that Mr. Saso reviewed the concepts very well and in depth. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is trying to get into a private high school.
- Jeannette S., 2016


 We are delighted that our daughter is attending her first choice (Presentation H.S.) in the fall. Your program helped her reduce her anxiety about what would be on the test and how it is structured. We will definitely recommend your program! Thank you!
- Bret Harte Middle School Parent, 2016


Thanks to you and your wonderful staff, our second son Lionel, has made it to Bellarmine. Three years ago you helped our elder son Joshua get into Bellarmine. They both attribute their success on the HSPT to your summer course and all the help they received at the review class, the week before the HSPT.
- Chris & Pat Jeremiah, 2015


I wanted to thank you for another wonderful experience. As you can imagine, Connor was NOT thrilled to be spending his winter break at "school". But when I picked him up on the 3rd day he said, "To be honest, I think I learned more math in the last few days than during all my school years." Doesn't get better than that! 

- Joan, 2015


My son, Bobby, said the class was worthwhile, and he was "glad I went".  Wow! I know that sounds like faint praise, but for a 13 year old boy, the day after Christmas, I'd say it is a home-run! 

- Kate, 2015

 

Student Testimonials:

I need to thank you for the wonderful prep that SASO gave me! The HSPT was really easy! Thank you so much for your help! I will recommend this to my friends and family!! Thanks!

- Nikhita, 2017

I think this program really helped me do my best on the HSPT. The teachers and aides are super nice and the class is well-paced and thorough. 

-Irene P., 2017

 

What I liked most about this HSPT class is how Mr. Saso teaches us. His teaching style helped me understand the concepts of language and math and he also gave me confidence and made me feel like a high schooler. I now feel prepared to take on the HSPT. Thank you!

- Christina R., 2016


Mr. Saso and his TAs were very interactive during this HSPT class. They walked around the room and helped everyone with problems: formulas, parts of speech, etc. I think Mr. Saso did a great job maintaining the class's attention and a great job keeping everyone involved.

- Trenton W., 2016

I would like to say thank you very much! I probably wouldn't have a chance to get into my #1 school without this class.

- Srikav G., 2016

This HSPT class helps everyone and leaves no one behind. If someone doesn't know something, they take the time to explain it in detail.

- Earl D., 2016

I really liked how organized the class was and how I knew at all times what to do and what was going to be discussed. I just want to say I thought this was a fabulous class.

- Raunak D., 2016

I enjoyed how friendly Mr. Saso and his TAs were. I feel that is very important in a learning environment.

- Alex M., 2016

The little tips and strategies were very useful, but what I really thought helped me the most were the language and verbal sections (which used to be my weak points.) I feel more prepared than when I first came, this class has not only given me a confidence boost but has also sharpened my math and other skills greatly. Thank you!

- Andy H., 2015

Frankly I liked a lot about this class. (I'll miss it) I loved the way you taught everything; it was so simple. In addition, you don't judge a student's score or skills. Instead you strive for improvement in that student. The encouragement, community, and overall general interactions in this class were great.

- Sohinee T.S.., 2014

I have found the most helpful part of this class is that they showed us how to do the problems; instead of taking a course online it's helpful to have an active person to help you, plus the binder was really cool.

- Anisha R., 2014

I learned more in 1 Saso class then 3 weeks in my English class.

- Shaan P., 2014

I've found the test taking skills I learned in this class most helpful in preparing to take the HSPT because they helped us work on timing which I needed most help with.

- Kaley G., 2014


[What did you like best about the class?]


I enjoyed the helpful TAs who were always ready to help me when I got stuck. I would recommend this class to others because it has many helpful resources and a knowledgeable teacher and staff.

- Gabriela N., 2016

Probably the teacher and the way he teaches. He makes sure to talk to everyone and keep everyone involved. The binders were really cool too. I loved the class overall.

- Andrew L., 2016

Taking the practice tests. Personally I suffer from testing anxiety, but this class helped me to get rid of it.

- Sean, 2014

The organization because it allows for students to learn in a standardized, easy procedure.

- Anonymous, 2014

I've liked this class because it has not only exceeded my expectations about how much I have improved, but I also feel way more confident with myself in all subjects.
- Stefan, 2014

What I liked the best about the class was the review of the basic fundamentals of the different subjects. It helped alot because I forgot some and the review helped me regain the knowledge I had lost. The test taking was also enjoyable.

- Armand A., 2014

I liked how we took lots of practice tests, so it's not as frightening when I actually take the real test.

- Kelli T., 2014

I liked the math portion of the class most. I normally don't enjoy math but this was a bit of fun and I learned a lot.

- Maddie Y., 2014

What I liked the best about the class was that it wasn't like ordinary school, it wasn't really boring. It was more fun than school and the teachers were pretty cool too.

- Elijah G., 2014

I liked that it has made me confident for the HSPT because I was really nervous before.

- Mason A., 2014

I liked that I learned more in this class than the past year of school. I feel a little too prepared. The class is well done.

- Lucas G., 2014

 

[Would you recommend this class to others?]

Yes! I liked that now I know what to expect and feel very prepared. Now I will go into the test with waaaay more confidence than if I hadn't taken this class. I found the teachers, the practice tests & worksheets the most helpful. Because of them now I feel totally prepared for the test.

- Sarah M., 2015


Yes. In 5 days you learn more about the HSPT in this class than you would by yourself in 5 months.

- Aditi G., 2014


I would most definitely recommend this class. It was beyond helpful to get a better idea where I need more improvement and to see what the HSPT will be like.

- Julie M., 2015

Yes because I feel so much more prepared and confident after taking this class.

- Mason A., 2014

I would because it will make them more confident and show them their weaknesses so they can improve on them before the HSPT.

- Christopher V., 2014

I would recommend this class to others; it is very helpful. If I had not taken this class, I would not have been prepared for the HSPT.

- Arnav S., 2014

No, I would not tell anyone about this class (at least this year!) because competition is too hard as it is and this course gives a big edge!
