The ISEE, or Independent School Entrance Exam, is a standardized test administered by ERB to determine admission into private middle schools and high schools. Preparing for the ISEE can be extremely stressful because it is vital for students to score well in order to receive admittance into their private schools of choice.Without guidance, students may spend hours studying unable to identify where they are going wrong!
Allow the tutors at TutorNerd to guide your student to their greatest potential and make the ISEE a task that cannot only be survived, but conquered.
Our ISEE tutors help a variety of students improve their performance with clear results. They first assess a student’s strengths and areas of improvement, and then recommend a comprehensive learning plan according to the student’s individual goals. For example, the ISEE has 4 sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, and Mathematics Achievement. If a student is excelling in Mathematics, but struggling with Reading Comprehension, we primarily focus on remediating the students comprehension skills while refining and maintaining the student’s developed mathematics skills.
The ISEE is administered by grade level: Lower (Grades 5-6), Middle (Grades 7-8), and Upper (Grades 9 and above). For the Lower Level, the test is administered in 2 hours and 30 minutes; for the Middle and Upper level, the test is administered in 2 hours and 50 minutes. Do note, the ISEE also has a ungraded essay component that is sent to schools as a writing sample. Though the essay is not graded, it is still vital for students to do well and present their aptitude at writing.
