The Role of ISEE

The ISEE, or the Independent School Entrance Examination, is a standardized test widely accepted by independent schools (private and boarding schools) as part of their admissions process. It's developed and administered by the Educational Records Bureau (ERB). The ISEE is designed to assess a student's verbal and quantitative reasoning abilities, as well as their achievement in reading and mathematics.

  • Diagnostic Assessment

    Get to know the student's current level, strengths, and weaknesses through an initial diagnostic test. This will set the baseline and help customize the tutoring program according to the student's needs.

  • Study Plan Creation

    Explain the ISEE format, sections, and scoring to the student and parents. Create a personalized study schedule based on the student's availability, learning style, and target score.

  • Detailed Review of ISEE Sections

    Systematically break down each section of the SAT. Our tutors dive deep into the content and structure of each section, providing comprehensive overviews and strategic insights.

  • Strategy Sessions

    Teach the student effective test-taking strategies such as time management, guessing techniques, and anxiety reduction methods.

  • Practice Tests and Feedback

    Have the student complete full-length, timed practice tests to simulate the ISEE test experience. Review the tests, giving feedback on the student's performance and providing strategies for improvement.

  • Focused Review and Drills

    Address weak areas identified during practice tests with focused review and drill sessions.

  • Final Review

    In the days leading up to the test, conduct a comprehensive review of all the concepts and strategies discussed during the program. Revisit difficult areas and build confidence in strengths.

  • Test Day Preparation

    Discuss what to expect on test day, including logistical details and mental preparation. Make sure the student understands how to apply strategies and manage time during the actual test.

  • Test Score Review

    Once the scores are released, analyze the student's performance with them and their parents, celebrate successes, and discuss next steps, whether that be additional tutoring for a retake or preparation for the next phase in their academic journey.
