Our SHSAT Instructors Are Awesome!

Finding a great SHSAT instructor can be tough. There are many things to consider when choosing an SHSAT instructor. For example, does the SHSAT instructor really know SHSAT? Does the SHSAT instructor know how to teach and explain SHSAT concepts in an easy to understand way? Will I get along with the SHSAT instructor?

At Five Points Learning, we rigorously screen our SHSAT instructors to make sure they are SHSAT subject matter experts. Most of our SHSAT instructors hold advanced degrees and have numerous years of teaching experience. We provide our expert SHSAT instructors with comprehensive training in our methods and provide them with ongoing support and professional feedback. This is all to ensure that our SHSAT instructors remain best-in-class and that your student receives the best SHSAT test prep available.

We Offer Individualized SHSAT Learning

Our detailed SHSAT Test Prep score reports enable students to individualize their learning by revealing the exact areas they should target in order to maximize their SHSAT test scores.

After each SHSAT practice test, students will receive an SHSAT practice test report that shows responses for each question and whether questions were answered correctly or incorrectly. If questions were answered incorrectly, correct answers are provided on the score report.

Reports also show student progress and performance by concept area. This specific identification of strengths and weaknesses enables students to target their studies and prepare more efficiently.

Study smarter, not harder.

We are SHSAT Content & Curriculum Experts

Our proprietary SHSAT test prep curriculum and SHSAT test prep materials are rigorously researched and tested to help students achieve their highest scores. We have published and made available to the public, the following SHSAT test prep books to help students prepare for the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT).

We Are All About Making a Difference

Salma Nakhlawi

Meet Salma Nakhlawi, a Five Points Learning student for four (4) years and 2013 New Visions scholarship winner for up to $20,000. In the fall of 2013, Salma matriculated into her dream college, Middlebury College, where as a freshman she studied International Global Studies, Chinese, and Arabic. Before leaving for school, we asked Salma to share her experiences at Five Points Learning with other students. Below are a few notable comments she made.

“Five Points Learning has inspired me to push myself because I can achieve what I work hard for.”
“Five Points Learning has opened my eyes to the world. I know about career options I did not know about before. I now know that I can start my own non-profit organization. I now know life is about enjoying what I do and I can do that by achieving high grades in college so that I can launch a successful, happy career.”
“Five Points Learning has taught me to aim high. Five Points has increased my confidence when it comes to school. I am not afraid to participate or ask questions. This, in turn, has made me have big dreams and hopes for myself. I know that I can achieve these dreams and hopes with hard work.”

Yelp Review

I came to Five Points with my 8th grade son less than two months before the SHSATs. I was feeling like a bad parent – how could I have waited until the “last minute” to get my son some help in preparing for this test that most kids seemed to have been working toward for a year or more? Five Points and Eddie were totally encouraging, organized and professional. Eddie devised a game plan for the time we had to work with and in about 5 or 6 sessions my son had the tools and confidence needed to test into his first choice. My son is a smart kid but I honestly believe that without the strategies and tips he got at Five Points, he wouldn’t have done anywhere near as well as he did. I shopped around a bit and was worried about not spending the big bucks that a lot of the dedicated SHSAT services charge. I cannot believe that they offer anything that is not available at Five Points for a fraction of the price.
– Bill Y. review from Yelp.com
Five Points Learning helped my child in both her Algebra class and SHSAT class. In both areas she improved dramatically and is now attending Brooklyn Tech. I will assuredly send her to the center again for her SAT. She loves her tutors there!
– kaitlyn h. review from Yelp.com
My teen attended Five Points for regents prep. She participated in the 4 student sessions and the tutor was on target and focused with excellent results. My daughter also attended the immersion section for science which proved to be successful. Five points is highly recommended.
