SSAT Essay Edit: Should Schools Require Uniforms?

This week, we're giving you a sneak peak into how to write a superb essay on the SSAT Writing section. 

First, practice creating outlines and writing timed essays. Try to have a complete outline of your essay, including the evidence you'll use, within the first five minutes.

Then, review your essays to make sure that each component accomplishes what you want it to (for instance, topic sentences need to introduce the whole idea expressed in a body paragraph). 

Below is an example with one of our student's writing samples.

Our goal is to help our students perfect the art of the SSAT essay!
