How can a tutor help your child master the ISAT?
Concerned that your student's difficulty in a particular subject might negatively affect his or her Illinois State Achievement Test or ISAT score, thus their application to selective private high schools? Varsity Tutors offers connections to ISAT tutoring in the Chicago metro area. These tutors can help your student brush up on or learn the concepts they need to meet with success on the ISAT.
The ISAT is given once a year in early March to all Illinois public school students in grades 3 through 8. The test is administered over a period of one or two weeks, depending on the choice of each school. Students are tested on reading comprehension, mathematics, and writing skills. In 4th and 7th grade, students are also tested on science content.
The test is a combination of multiple choice, short answer (math), extended response (math), and extended response (writing). Students' scores help schools and parents to measure individual progress and the progress of the school population as a whole. For 7th grade students in the city of Chicago, Illinois, who are interested in applying to selective enrollment high schools, it is important to note that 7th-grade ISAT scores count for one-third of the selection criteria.
Whether it is reading comprehension, math, or writing that gives your student particular trouble, the credentialed ISAT tutor will address every section of the exam with them as needed during ISAT tutoring, to best prepare them for the test. Your child's tutor will travel to your home or a location you choose and hold sessions whenever it works best for your schedule.
Tutors can structure their sessions around lesson plans tailored to your child's individual strengths and weaknesses, and provide feedback and encouragement to inspire his or her confidence. Each ISAT tutor has made it through a rigorous selection process that ensures that they not only know the ISAT in detail, but can explain the concepts that it tests clearly and efficiently.
