How can a tutor help your child master the ISEE?
The Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) can represent a complicated moment in your child's academic upbringing. Which level should they register for? How soon should they begin to study? Varsity Tutors can help you find individualized ISEE tutors across the Washington, DC, area, including northern Virginia and Maryland, to help you answer the many questions you and your child may have.
Qualified ISEE tutors are also mentors. They guide you and your child through the process of applying to independent schools with one-on-one sessions in your home or online, according to you and your child's schedule. ISEE tutoring guides potential test takers with a review regimen tailored to their specific learning style and proficiencies, with tutors selected to match their personality types. The relationship between student and tutor is crucial, and experienced tutors work diligently to create a harmonious test-prep environment that is as free from stress as possible.
A personalized tutor can help your child prepare for the ISEE through one-on-one tutoring at your home in the comfort of your own DC-area home or another location of your choice. Tutoring from our brilliant, friendly tutors can significantly improve the likelihood that your child will get into the private school of choice. Varsity Tutor's live learning platform allows you and your child to meet with their tutor in a location where you and your child feel most comfortable.
If your child is preparing for the Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE), they may be feeling some pressure. They know that the ISEE is meant to be a challenging test that covers a wide variety of skills and subjects, including reading comprehension, mathematical and reasoning skills, and essay writing. They also know that how they perform on test day may have consequences for their future, because their score may affect whether or not they get into the private school of their choice. What you and your child may not know, however, is what they should do to prepare for the test.
As someone who has excelled on the ISEE, your child's specialized ISEE tutor has the knowledge and experience to help them master the material, prepare for the test, and handle the pressure. Your child's personalized tutoring program will begin with a practice test to assess their strengths and weaknesses, then quickly develop to address their trouble areas, while also covering key concepts necessary for the test. It can be difficult for you and your child to identify strengths and weaknesses on your own because you may not necessarily know what you are looking for. But an experienced tutor will be able to tell exactly what your child needs to work on.
Your child's tutor can also be very beneficial because they can help familiarize your child with the test format itself, share the latest ISEE test-taking tips, and teach your child the most efficient strategies for studying for the ISEE on their own. Many students don't ever really learn how to study. Learning how to study can be just as important for your child as actually studying the material.
Your child may spend hours every day studying, but if they don't really know how to study this time will be wasted. A private tutor can offer study tips that will help your child both during their sessions and when they are studying on their own. Additionally, a skilled and experienced tutor can help them develop effective study skills that will serve them well throughout their academic careers. They will need to study for other exams and courses even after taking the ISEE, and learning how to study early on in life will become a major advantage as they enter into college.
