I have taught 10 students ISEE in the past year, including two children whom I found through WyzAnt and whom I have been tutoring since May 2013. One parent has given me top ratings throughout the time I have taught her daughters. I am intimately familiar with the test and understand what it takes to succeed on it, including using process of elimination, strategies for vocabulary, math for all levels, strategies for identifying reading comprehension main points and evaluating answer choices. I am also qualified to teach the SSAT, which is a fairly similar test to ISEE. I currently teach SSAT t [more]

I have been tutoring students for the ISEE for five years now. I have helped them achieve an average increase of two stanines (up to three!). I teach my students how to decipher the hidden meanings and hints in the sentence completions, become active readers for the reading section, and the right math concepts so they can ace the quantitative comparisons (and the math achievement, of course!). I have been a professional tutor for the past 5 years. My specialties are the ACT/SAT (I scored in the 99th percentile for these), SSAT, and ISEE. I get results: just recently I had another student take [more]

If you wish for your student to attend a private school, it is likely that they will have to take one or more standardized tests. One of the most popular exams in this respect is the ISEE. This test is extremely challenging, particularly the upper level ISEE. Your student will be competing against other students who have historically been well supported in their academic careers. The test contains material your student has likely --- never --- seen before. In order to perform well on the ISEE, a large amount of preparation is crucial. This test has five sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitativ [more]

Over the years, I have successfully prepared for the Math portions of the ISEE (and the SSAT) a number of students applying to (and getting into) highly selective private schools (at any grade level). My system of preparation for these standardized tests in mathematics is somewhat unique and unconventional. In fact, it goes against the grain of *most* of what you have been taught in school... and likely even in a test-prep class, if you have taken one. Sound a bit unnerving? Perhaps. But consider this: those same math teachers who tell you what to do, had most likely not scored well th [more]

I have worked with a number of students preparing for the ISEE test on the lower, middle and elementary levels. In supporting my students I used the official ISEE prep book as well as other resources. We worked on math skills (both quantitative reasoning and mathematics achievement) reading comprehension and vocabulary. Throughout we worked on strategies for the test, working from each student's strengths. With each student, I worked on the essay, including practicing essay topics to develop fluency, organizing each topic, and checking for common grammar and spelling errors. I hold New York [more]

I've been tutoring for ISEE, through WyzAnt and on my own, since I was trained to teach and tutor the test for Kaplan and Kaplan Premier in 2006. I've had dozens of ISEE tutoring students over the years and have helped all of my students reach their goals for admission to private school. I am also very familiar with all the retail products that students will have to use to prepare for the ISEE and help guide them toward the correct practice materials (of which there is, sadly, a paucity in the marketplace). In essence, the ISEE is a very ordinary standardized test, so my experience teaching SA [more]

It seems like Manhattan is the private school capitol of the world and for many kids it's their first standardized test. The stakes seem high and families get overwhelmed. There is a steep learning curve and most of the ISEE is above grade level so students struggle from the beginning. The right tutor can put students (and parents) at ease and make a space where learning can happen. I can provide excellent references, have doubled student scores, and coached students to 9 stanines. I've worked full-time in the most competitive, high-stakes tutoring environment in the United States for the past [more]

I have tutored more than 20 ISEE and SSAT students over the past 15 years. My experience is at all three levels of the test. After first assessing strengths and weaknesses, I help students develop a comprehensive study plan, with daily practice to supplement our tutoring sessions. We will work hard, and develop skills that will also help with the SAT and ACT later on. As an independent school educator, and parent, I have a unique view of the test, and its use in the admissions process. I am a school librarian with more than 25 years of teaching and tutoring experience! I have taught all ages [more]

I offer Independent School Entrance Exam prep, specializing in math and test taking tips and strategies for this unique, timed test. In addition to reviewing the most-tested math concepts, the quantitative comparisons can be unfamiliar to some students, so a particular concentration on these is included if needed. My expertise in standardized test prep and successful math tutoring methods will ensure readiness and confidence for the ISEE. I explain math concepts using simple ideas and illustrations, making them easy to understand and easy to remember. Whether you are looking for remedial h [more]

I have successfully tutored a number of ISEE, SSAT and TACHS students using techniques that I have developed to help SAT students raise their scores by several hundred points! I work with students to develop a custom study plan that attacks their weaknesses and enhances their strengths. Students that hone these techniques over considerable practice have had great success! I am an experienced Private Math and SAT / ACT Tutor. I provide tutoring in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Statistics and SAT, ACT, PSAT, ISEE, SSAT, TAKS, GRE and GMAT test preparation. [more]
