Winter and Spring 2021 Test Prep Registration

Be All That You Can Be!

Private school entrance exams and the overall application process can be overwhelming. We help balance daily school work, tests, extracurriculars, and family life to alleviate the stress.

It is essential that you prepare early. Due dates are always closer than they appear.

“The Private Middle and Private High School application process is very time consuming, just as much work as college applications! You must start early, manage your time well and don’t procrastinate!” past student, now a Stanford grad.

As a recognized test prep center, we are a boutique quality testing facility. At The Math Workshop you are not a number. We strictly limit our class sizes and our instructors stay with you throughout the entire preparation process. Completing the 15 hours of prep does not mean our interaction with you is over. We stay in regular contact to keep you on top of your due dates and manage the entire cycle.
The Math Workshop has been preparing students for the ISEE/SSAT/HSPT entrance exams for nearly 30 years. Our success comes from our program where students are guided through the process early on and are able to execute all the different elements of their application in a thoughtful and prepared manner.

There are many pieces to an application. We guide our students with our years of expertise to make sound decisions. We guide them to choose a school that will ultimately will be the best fit for them and their family.

Our Families Speak Out...

  • In one word: Magic! My daughter was tutored by Mrs Vakili in preparation for the HSPST high school entrance exam. Generally not a good test taker, she did extremely well which I attribute to Mrs. Vakili’s process with her. Mrs. Vakili is not just a teacher, she is a coach, a friend, a confidant, a counselor, a motivator, and a confidence builder. My son works with Mrs. Vakili to strengthen his math skills and his confidence has increased two-fold. He never complains about “going to tutor” because he is so comfortable with her and she somehow makes the learning fun. Her patient, personal commitment to assess each child, identify their unique learning abilities, and work tirelessly with them has been a lifesaver in our household.

  • Dear Annabelle, We wanted to thank you again for all of your hard work on behalf of our children. Our four-year relationship with you and The Math Workshop has been nothing short of extraordinary. Bobby, as you know, is entering high school and with your time, talent and expertise, he was accepted into all of the high schools he applied with honors distinction.

    Denee and Peter B.
  • We are forever grateful for your care and attention. The testing path is a long and arduous journey. Yet, with your help in keeping us focused, helping us with late night edits and reminding us to breath, we had less stress and had unbelievable results. 5 schools out of 5 schools is amazing!
