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]

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 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 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]

The ISEE Test is a very difficult exam for students; however I have had excellent experience improving student's scores. I have a BS in Engineering from WPI and an MBA from NYU. My education in Engineering has given me a solid foundation in Math. My minor at WPI was American Literature; which has equipped me with the tools for the Verbal Reasoning and Reading Comprehension sections of the exam. I not only improve the student's core skills, but help develop a test taking strategy which includes time management. [more]

I have taught the COOP Exam to 8th graders. I have done very well on the SHSAT practice exams. I know that the ISEE is a similar type of test, and so I have no concerns about knowing the material. I think I would do an excellent job tutoring the exam. I am a very patient Math tutor who is dedicated to improving my student's skills. I tutor Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Trigonometry and Geometry. I have tutored for 21 years. I tutor Math Regents Exams, GED Math, SAT Math, and the Catholic High Schools Entrance Exam. I passed all three parts of The National Teachers Exam on the first at [more]

I have worked with over 100 students on all 3 levels of the ISEE and SSAT. For 3 years in London, I was the Director of the ISEE/SSAT programming at a test prep company. I am fully dedicated to the success of my students, as I know how important this exam is for students and families. My name is Kelly, and I have been an educator for 15+ years. Thank you for considering me as an option for an important member of your educational team! I have worked nearly 1000 hours preparing over 100 students for the ISEE or SSAT, so these exams--at all three levels--are my expert areas. I have been a c [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]
