I have tutored students to prepare for many entrance exams including SSAT and TEAS. I have also tutored students for the ISEE and the test materials are very similar. The difference between the tests is the format and structure of the test. I feel I am qualified to tutor students for the ISEE because I have seen the material on the test and I have had success tutoring students for all these tests. Students feel frustrated when they don't understand how to answer the questions. They want someone to get right to the problem and tell them what is needed to figure out the answers. I am certified i [more]

I'm a graduate-school professor who is very familiar with ways of helping students with the subjects of this test. For tutoring the ISEE, I often find gaps in knowledge of vocabulary and math that are significant.. I carefully diagnose any knowledge deficiencies in those areas. In doing so, I explain the key methods in a variety of simple ways until I find ones that are easy for a student to understand and apply. Then, with directed practice through drills, skill rapidly builds. Students tell me that I help them to become more successful than they ever thought possible. As one example of why t [more]

For more than 15 years, I have tutored students to take and pass the Independent School Entrance Examination so that they could gain admission to some of the top schools in the country. I am trained in educational testing and test administration, as well as in test-taking techniques and tactics to reduce test anxiety. I completed all of the coursework requirements for obtaining my Ph.D. in measurement and testing at the University of Pennsylvania ? including passing a rigorous six-hour written examination that was pre-requisite for my degree. I currently help students in all areas of the ISEE [more]

My teaching approach to the ISEE is very student-specific. I start by analyzing my student's specific strengths and weaknesses on a practice test so that our time together is spent in the most productive and efficient way possible. As we progress, what we spend time on each step of the way is in response to my student's evolving needs. In general, though, my teaching methods for the ISEE focus on helping students learn both overall testing strategies for scoring well on the test in general as well as content-specific strategies that will help them in each of the subtests. Because I have ta [more]

I have a Master's degree in special education. I have worked with students preparing for secondary entrance exams. I have many years' experience with teaching reading skills and systematically teach reading comprehension in various subjects. This includes identifying the main idea and supportive detail, identifying vocabulary in context, drawing inferences, identifying components of logical argument and analysis, and identifying and understanding literary conventions and techniques. Verbal reasoning is strengthen through systematic work with synonyms and sentence completion, both vocabulary ta [more]

I have taught for four years in an independent school authorized by NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges) and so I know the rigor of instruction expected in independent schools. I am very familiar with the content of the different levels of the ISEE exam. I have helped many students in test prep over the past 3 years. I am an innovative and experienced educator who believes that students of all ages can achieve amazing results with the right teacher! I graduated in 2009 from Harvard College with a degree in History and Literature and I most recently graduated from the Harvar [more]

I have successfully helped many students taking the ISEE to get scores required for their choice of private schools in my 15 years as an independent tutor. I am qualified in SSAT, a similar test. I am certified in Math in Mass., and am qualified for SAT & ACT Math, English and Writing, all similar or higher level to the ISEE. Do you want better grades and test scores? Do you want to get the most from your classes? Is something holding you back from doing your best? Would you like to ace that entrance exam? Do you want feel comfortable asking questions and get answers that you understand? I ca [more]

Since graduating from Harvard, I have been developing and implementing ISEE curricula. I developed a curriculum to help students succeed on the math sections of the Middle Level ISEE. In my current position as a Program Manager at the Academic Student Center, I tutor students in the verbal sections of the Lower, Middle, and Upper ISEE and SSAT, and I continue to develop and teach courses on conquering the math sections of the ISEE and SSAT. For the past three years, I have been teaching, tutoring, and developing curricula for both the ISEE and SSAT for all levels. [more]

I have a master's in math education (M.Ed.) with a focus on secondary education. I also have a valid math teaching certificate (grades 6-12) from Texas. Since I have also been tutoring in math for 20+ years from grades 4 through graduate statistics courses, I have a strong foundation in teaching the mathematics that is expected in the school setting (public or private). I have also been asked by two parents recently that I was already tutoring to provide some extra practice for the ISEE. As a former middle/high school math teacher, I am very effective helping struggling students to succeed in [more]
