Bee Tutored: NNAT2 Test Prep Presentation

Event date: 
Saturday, September 21, 2013 - 2:30pm



Bee Tutored, a boutique tutoring company, will be hosting an NNAT2 Prep Test Q&A session at Bank Street Bookstore.

The event will address your concerns about the NNAT2, the new test given for admission to the city's Gifted and Talented programs. Bee Tutored's NNAT®2 workbook contains 60 full-color questions designed to introduce preschoolers and kindergartners to the types of questions they will encounter on the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test, or the NNAT®2. This workbook will help young learners to target and further develop the skills assessed by the NNAT®2, such as critical thinking, pattern recognition, reasoning and spatial visualization. Exposing your child to the content and format of this test will help them be more prepared on their testing day.

The author of the book, Lauren Young, and Bee Tutored's Gifted & Talented tutors will be in attendance to help answer any of your questions regarding the test, how to best help your child prepare and be available to do hands-on work with any attending children.

Registration is recommended. Please call Bank Street Bookstore at 212-678-1654 or join the Bee Tutored NNAT2 Test Prep Facebook event page.
