ISEE

I am an experienced tutor, with a strong educational background including biological science; math focusing on basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis; verbal reasoning and reading comprehension. I am dedicated to one thing ? higher scores. Independent School Entrance Exam, ISEE, is the gateway to private school as well as magnet school. I can provide customized tutoring sessions that meet your child?s needs and assist them to build confidence through their study skills. With three different test levels, I will incorporate time management and academic skill development into their test-prep sessions so your child master the skills needed to succeed in a challenging private school setting and more. ISEE, as a standardized test, is a tool used to determine if the student acquires the ability to do the work at his school and to pinpoint his knowledge in the core subjects. I have been tutoring students in preparing for their standardized tests. Eventually, I have been coaching them to achieve their goals within tailored - structured sessions with understanding and proper support for those having learning differences and special needs. The best part of tutoring is seeing students' smiles on their faces when they understand the basics of algebraic expressions and realize how to solve any word problem. Learning process becomes fun and exciting as I will explicit the process and the relationships among words and concepts, analyze relationships among component parts of sentences, and synthesize information obtained from written context in an effective and interactive approach. Holding a biological science credential, experiencing and tutoring, afford me the expertise to assist our students and enhance their skills. What I can promise is that I will be committed, accessible.
