I taught at three independent schools over a decade and am well aware of what the ISEE exam covers. I taught 6-8th most often, and worked with younger students as well in two schools that were K-8. I'd be happy to work on test prep for the exam for students of all ages. Hi, I taught middle school and high school for ten years before completing my doctoral and post-doctoral research. My secondary school teaching was honored by Stanford University, and every semester I taught at Harvard I earned University distinction for top-rated courses. As both a middle/high school teacher and a social cogni [more]

I prepare my students for ISEE by working problems from ISEE prep books together with them, focusing on those subjects with which the student has the greatest difficulty. For example, one of my current lower level ISEE students needs much remedial work in arithmetic, but is already very good at reading comprehension. For both vocabulary and for mathematics preparation, I find that flash cards are a very useful tool for my students. I have over 30 years of experience as a tutor and lecturer in mathematics and physics, both before and after I completed my physics & biology BA at UC Berkeley and [more]

ISEE prep, more than any other test prep, must be adapted to the age and aptitude of the students. I have worked with one student, a 4th grader, on ISEE prep, but I believe that my experience doing ACT and SAT prep would be more applicable to an older student. Striving for an top-notch test score, or mastering math and physics classes, can be daunting and frustrating. Sometimes a teacher doesn?t explain the material well, or abstract concepts don?t quite click. That?s why I bring patience and a positive attitude to my tutoring. I use a technique of offering multiple explanations for each conce [more]

I currently am helping students prepare for the ISEE and the SSAT. The focus of our work is on vocabulary, sentence completion questions, analogies, reading comprehension strategies, and preparation for the essay component. I greatly enjoy working with students, having tutored, taught, and coached students for the past thirty years. My degrees are from Harvard College (B.A.) and the University of Chicago (M.A., Ph.D.). During the past six years I have tutored for Wyzant, and several other tutoring services. Currently I teach high school English, History, and Psychology at Cambrian Internat [more]

I have tutored students on the ISEE at the upper, middle, and lower levels. My tutoring involves a comprehensive approach to all four sections of the ISEE: verbal reasoning; math (quantitative reasoning and mathematics achievement); reading comprehension; and the essay. Similar to other tests, I go over the content, question types, and strategy for each section. I have achieved superior results with students willing to apply themselves fully to the program. I am currently a tutor for the Princeton Review, have taught at UCLA (TA), and have 11+ years of private tutoring experience working with [more]

ISEE is similar to the HSPT, but not exactly the same. Many students take both tests because they are applying to both private and Catholic high schools. I have experience tutoring this test and can help you do your very best. My goal is to teach my students *how* to learn so they no longer need to rely on me. In addition to three Clear California Teaching Credentials (Math, English, and Multiple Subject), I have many years of experience as a teacher. My primary love is language, but I consider that to include math. As Mrs. B., my high school algebra teacher said, "Math is the universal lang [more]

I have had the pleasure of working with a tutor from California who tutors almost exclusively for the ISEE. I have created a multitude of resources for her and have found that the ISEE is very similar to the state standardized tests that I have taught for 15 years. I have a 90% pass rate on the Virginia SOLs, which are among the highest in difficulty in the country. While the ISEE is tested differently, I have studied in depth their guidelines, expectations, and requirements for doing well in all subjects. In short, I have a master's degree in education, I've taught and tutored for 15 y [more]

The math portion of the ISEE tests students' knowledge of general mathematical concepts and basic problem-solving skills related to algebra and geometry. I have the most current practice tests and years of experience tutoring all levels of math. I am also very familiar with its content and structure which consists of two different sections: quantitative reasoning and mathematics achievement. I'd love to go through practice tests and share test-taking strategies with students to help them achieve high scores. [more]

As a part of the requirements for entrance to many independent schools, the ISEE tests Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Mathematics Achievement and also grades a half-hour essay. The skills needed to do well on this exam are the very skills I have been honing for many years, both in graduate school and empirically with private students. I love to teach students of all ages. I have extensive experience (35+ years) as a professional pianist and piano teacher, and a music degree from UCLA in Music Composition (minor in Piano Performance). I also have a Master's d [more]

I administer the ISEE for students wishing to enter private school in the Bay Area, so I am very familiar with the test. I also tutor and teach how to take the test, giving students tips on how to approach the test and familiarize them with test questions. In addition, I am credentialed to teach the subjects covered in the test because my credential is in math, English and science. My experience as a published writer is valuable on grammar and writing. Hello, My experience as a tutor is extensive. I have worked as a tutor for several years, tutoring most subjects, including mathematics, Engli [more]
