They employ strategies that will increase the level of subject-retention. Some of the methods they are going to teach are using inductive reasoning, practicing reading the problem carefully in its entirety, and applying a system of elimination for each problem. There are so many benefits with choosing to have a professional tutoring class step in and assist in preparing a student for a standardized test, like the ISEE Test.”
What is the ISEE Test?
ISEE is an abbreviation for Independent School Entrance Exam. The ISEE is used by independent, private, and magnet middle and high schools to assess their applicants when they are determining which candidates should be admitted or rejected from enrolling in the school. For students who are applying to these elite schools, it is important to prepare for the exam and know how to achieve a competitive score so they will have a higher likelihood of being admitted into the school of their choice. Many schools have a minimum requirement for a score on the ISEE test, so in order to gain acceptance a student needs to have a high score.
All About The ISEE Test
The ISEE test covers a number of topics including vocabulary like synonyms and sentence completion, mathematics, and reading comprehension. There is an essay associated with completing the exam, but this essay is not scored, rather it is sent to the admissions office of the school that is receiving the test scores so that way the school administrators can determine the strength of a student’s writing.
There are several levels on the ISEE test with varying levels of difficulty. The first level is the lower level which covers material in grades 5th and 6th. The second level is the middle level which covers material in grades 7th and 8th. The third level is the upper level which covers material in grades 9th through 12th.
Getting into an elite private school is a crucial aspect in getting into an Ivy League college. If a student has attended an exclusive private school, they are a more competitive applicant for an established college. This makes achieving a high score on the ISEE an important aspect of a student’s academic career because it can make the difference between getting into and getting rejected from the Ivy league college of their dreams.
Since this exam can be difficult to prepare for, online ISEE test prep classes to improve their problem-solving skills prior to the exam is essential because:
- 1. It is structured as an achievement test instead of an intelligence test
- 2. It covers a wider array of subjects
- 3. The difficulty of questions is lower than that of the SAT but the time constraints make the test more difficult for those who cannot answer questions very rapidly.
The ISEE test has four sections: Math, Reading, Science, and English. All of which are scored from 1-36.
An optional fifth section is sometimes required by Colleges which is a writing sample scored from 2
Why Tutoring For The ISEE?
For students who have yet to experience a portion of the curriculum on the ISEE, it is important for them to get guidance from an instructor about the material to prepare for the exam. Although there are prep courses available which offer a classroom setting to review the exam material and format, these courses are not individualized to meet each student’s needs. Choosing to seek the individualized instruction from a professional private tutor can decrease the amount of time and energy spent preparing for the ISEE as well as increase test scores. Some of the material is going to be unfamiliar to a student who is preparing for the ISEE, so a private tutor is going to be able to inform their students of the new material in a way that is going to better help the student prosper.

Here at Miles Smart Tutoring, we use strategy to create a match between the tutor and student that will create a strong partnership. Because there are several levels that integrate different material, it is essential that the private tutor that advises their student is familiar with the details of the material on their specific level ISEE. Our private tutors are trained to assess their current weaknesses and diligently work to enhance their understanding by reviewing the material and then practicing problems together.
In addition to using test taking strategies, they are going to familiarize the student with the format they should expect to see on the ISEE and administer practice tests to work on reducing test anxiety when the actual test is being taken. A student’s test anxiety can make problems that they could typically accomplish solving very challenging on test day. Practicing mock exams prior to the actual test day will get them comfortable with the time constraint and build their confidence so their anxiety does not prevent them from showcasing their knowledge on test day.
While we employ a variety of methodologies and strategies, we emphasize the Socratic method (a form of cooperative argumentative dialogue between individuals based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking) as it helps students think logically to find the answer. This method of teaching has future ramifications as it carries over to future classes and helps develop self-reliance amongst students.
