How can a tutor help your child master the ISEE?
If your child is preparing to take the Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE) at either the lower, middle, or upper level, you may want to consider finding them their own tutor for test prep assistance. The results of this exam are weighed in the admissions process for competitive elementary, middle, and high schools (depending on the level). Therefore, having your child prepared for this exam is extremely important. Varsity Tutors can assist you in finding a Chicago, Illinois, ISEE tutor. Your child's tutor can work around your family's schedule, meeting with your child at a time and place that is most convenient to your scheduling needs. They can also work with your child online or in person!
There are five timed sections of the exam for your child and their tutor to go through: verbal reasoning (20 minutes), quantitative reasoning (35 minutes), reading comprehension (25 minutes), math achievement (30 minutes), and an essay (30 minutes). A private ISEE tutor in Chicago can work with your child on areas that they do not fully understand. They can also give practice exams to better pinpoint exactly where your child most needs their assistance. From there, they can work with your child on these concepts in depth, with a study plan tailored to your student's personal learning needs. This means they can skip over areas your child has already mastered. There's no need to cover algebraic concepts, for example, if your child understands these just fine but struggles with figurative language. This way, your child and their tutor can spend extra, valuable time on the areas where assistance is actually needed.
The ISEE tutor can also create custom practice exams designed just for your child, to help them practice the skills they are learning in an environment that mimics that of ISEE test day. This may help eliminate some testing anxiety on the actual day of the big test. Once these practice exams have been taken, your child can then go over them with their tutor, scoring them and exploring any mistakes that were made. This way, as mistakes appear, their tutor can walk them through the process of how to arrive at the correct answer.
Whether your child is preparing for the lower, middle, or upper-level exam, a tutor can work with them at their learning level. Chicago ISEE tutoring is student-centered. This means that your child's tutor can adapt their teaching style to work with whichever style your student learns best with, be it aural, visual, or kinesthetic. They can also work at a pace that is right for your child's individual learning.
If you are hoping to see your child enrolled in a competitive elementary, middle, or high school, then their preparation for the ISEE is of the utmost importance. For help finding a dedicated ISEE tutor in Chicago, Illinois, contact Varsity Tutors today!
