Effective Ph.D. Tutor of Mathematics and Physics

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]

Harvard doctoral, 10 yrs. middle/high school teacher

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]

Academic Tutor Extraordinaire

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]

Experienced, fully licensed teacher

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]

Proud Math Nerd!

I spent about a year working at an independent learning center where the majority of my students were preparing for the ISEE. I worked with students in all three levels of the test. We covered the full range of topics--general test-taking strategy and its applications to reading comprehension and word problems, using word roots and context clues when working with unfamiliar vocabulary, full survey math skill reviews, and how to quickly prepare a 5-paragraph essay. I also took the ISEE myself in the 6th grade as part of the admissions process to Bishop's, so I'm familiar with what it's like to [more]

Math, science, and test prep tutor fresh out of Stanford

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]

UCSD grad, credentialed English teacher, published author, editor

Regardless of which of the three levels of the ISEE your child is taking, it is probably the first comprehensive test in their life. One of the challenges of the ISEE will be the timed sections, and the overall length of approximately 2-1/2 hours, which is a long time for a child to sit, in addition to possible anxiety. Other than the math section, the other four revolve around language: verbal and quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension, and essay writing. Fortunately, the art of test taking can be taught so that the stress level is greatly reduced. My approach is to combine general kno [more]

Ivy League Grad with a Masters in Ed and Four Wheel Drive

I have worked with a number of students on their ISEE exams. Not only have they performed well, but I have watched them go on to succeed at a number of fantastic schools. I am well-versed in the format as well as a number of test-taking strategies that will provide a bump in their scores. Tutoring is something I fell into in high school, and I haven?t stopped since. I started out by helping friends and other classmates; however, in college, it became my unofficial part-time job - one that paid in fantastically edible, non-cafeteria meals. By the time I was in grad school, it evolved into a [more]
