I have experience with the ISEE. I know what independent schools are looking for, and am ready to help my students rise to the occasion. Independent schools look for students who can think critically, and who trust their own brains. They're looking for fluency in vocabulary, mathematics, and reading skills. To measure these skills, the ISEE contains four sections: a 20-minute Verbal Reasoning section, a 35-minute Quantitative Reasoning section, a 25-minute Reading Comprehension section, and a 30-minute Mathematics Achievement section. Some basic techniques include: know your roots and pre [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]

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 am a California credentialed teacher who is familiar with the standards for the ISEE in verbal and quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension, mathematic achievement, and writing. While preparing my ISEE students for the test I ensure we thoroughly review each area listed above to give my students confidence in how they will perform on the exam. I am currently taking some time off to stay at home with my newborn daughter. I will back to work soon! I am passionate about helping students dramatically improve their academic performance. Students deserve a curriculum that focuses on their i [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 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]

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]

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]
