I have been providing ISEE tutoring services on both middle-level and upper-level offerings for over 7 years. I am proficient in all of the subject areas contained in each test: 1. Verbal Ability (synonyms and sentence completions) 2. Quantitative Reasoning 3. Reading Comprehension 4. Mathematics Achievement 5. Writing Sample My efforts are tailored to the individual student, owing to the fact that each student learns at his/her own pace. My general approach is threefold: 1. Reinforcing the skills necessary, in each subject area, to tackle the test questions. 2. Familiarizing the student with how these skills are tested through actual test question exercises, untimed. 3. Timed test-taking of each subject area to prepare the student for the actual experience. My educational background includes master's degrees in both education and mathematics; my efforts have also included pro-bono work with children who aspire to a higher level but without the means to do so.
