If you're currently looking for Boston ISEE prep, Varsity Tutors has you covered with the best ISEE preparation opportunities available. The ISEE, or the Independent School Entrance Exam, is a standardized test used to assess students in grades 2-12 who are hoping to gain admission to an independent school. The ISEE is accepted by over 1200 independent schools. Although this exam is not the only thing taken into consideration in the application process, it provides a fair means of assessing a student's reasoning and achievement skills. Your student will want to make sure to do his or her best on this exam to showcase the skills deemed by independent schools to be important for success. A Boston ISEE prep course or instructor can help your student feel confident when he or she walks into the exam on test day.

What skills and topics can Boston ISEE prep cover to help my student prepare for the ISEE?

There are several different versions of the ISEE. Which one your student takes depends on what grade he or she is entering. The Primary Level ISSE are for students entering second, third, or fourth grade. The Lower Level ISEE is for students entering fifth or sixth grade. The Middle Level ISEE is taken by students entering seventh or eighth grade. Students entering ninth grade or higher will take the Upper Level ISEE.

Primary Level students will be assessed on Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. Reading will evaluate a student's comprehension and age-appropriate vocabulary. Mathematics will assess basic math skills at the appropriate grade level. The Writing section will consist of a picture prompt, which must be used as the basis for a story written by your child. This Writing sample isn't scored but is sent with ISEE scores to prospective schools so the admissions office can get a fee for your child's creative thinking skills and personality. Students entering second grade will also take an Auditory Comprehension section in which they will listen to a passage and answer questions about it.

The Lower, Middle, and Upper Level ISEE assess students on Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Math Achievement, and Reading Comprehension. The sections and time limits are the same for each of these levels but vary in difficulty and content, based on grade level. The Verbal Reasoning section assesses English skills. The Quantitative Reasoning section evaluates math skills and focuses mainly on your student's ability to use mathematics logically rather than specific mathematical operations. The Math Achievement section assesses grade-appropriate math operation skills such as solving equations or working with fractions, ratios, and proportions. For the Essay, students are presented with a topic of age-appropriate interest. This is a student's opportunity to tell the school a bit about themselves.

What are the benefits of the different types of Boston ISEE prep?

When you select Varsity Tutors for your student's ISEE preparation, you and your student will be able to choose between two excellent prep options. We can enroll your student in an online, interactive ISEE course or connect your student with a private ISEE tutor. Both options can assist your student in preparing more thoroughly than he or she might be able to do without help. However, each option comes with a different set of benefits and advantages, so we'll take a closer look at both of them now.

When you sign your student up for an online Boston ISEE prep class, he or she will be able to access class sessions anywhere with a computer and high-speed internet. This means study sessions can take place in the local library, a favorite cafe, or the comfort of your own home after school has let out for the day. Online courses are conducted in a similar manner to a traditional classroom. Your student can interact directly with the teacher as if they are all in the same room. Your student will also be able to participate in various collaborative activities such as group discussions on finding information from provided passages or group projects where students assist each other on working through Quantitative Reasoning problems. These types of collaborative activities have been shown to help with memory retention. This is a great opportunity for social learners who do best in a structured learning environment.

When you sign your student up for an online course, you'll be able to choose between a two-week and a four-week course. Varsity Tutors has new class sessions beginning each week so your student can begin a course at any time.

Working with a private Boston ISEE tutor is also an option and can be great for independent learners who want to work at their own pace. A private teacher can take the time to get to know a student's strengths, weaknesses, learning style preference, and areas that need improvement. With these facts in mind, study sessions can be tailored to suit your student's exact needs. Instead of reviewing topics he or she has already mastered, your student can focus on the exact material or skills that need improvement. As your student improves and progresses, lessons can be adjusted to reflect his or her growth and can focus on new areas of content. This kind of customized learning can make material easier to understand. Working with a private instructor also provides the benefit of being able to choose your own schedule. We'll do our best to connect you with a tutor who can meet with you at your preferred time. Additionally, with our Live Learning Platform, your student won't even need to commute to meet his or her instructor. Private study sessions are held online, which brings face-to-face private instruction to your favorite study spot.

Some parents may wish to sign their student up for both options. This can give your student access to both private, focused lessons based on his or her exact areas of need in addition to collaborative, interactive lessons with peers. No matter which option you choose for your student, Varsity Tutors is here to support the ISEE preparation process.
