How can a tutor help your child master the ISEE?

If your child is planning on enrolling in an independent or private school, they may need to take the Independent School Entrance Examination, or ISEE. This standardized test assesses your student's proficiency level in the following areas: verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, math, reading comprehension, and essay writing. There are three versions of the exam, lower, middle, and upper, which are determined by your child's grade level. The test may take up to three hours to complete and is known to be quite complex. In order to give your child the assistance they need to pass, you should contact Varsity Tutors today. All of the tutors that our educational directors may connect you with in Dayton, OH, are skilled in teaching the ISEE.

The tutors that Varsity Tutors may help you find in Dayton are experienced professionals, skilled in working to help students try to understand the intricacies of the ISEE. They have exposure to the exam, so they may create a study program that may prepare your child for test day. Additionally, tutors may also teach your child the study habits and test taking skills they need to know so that they score high on the exam. Since every lesson is taught in a student-centered manner, your student might be able to actively engage with their instructor as they work through various problems.

Session Summaries by ISEE Tutors

Dayton, OH ISEE tutoring
Today we devoted more than an hour to mathematics and quantitative reasoning concepts, going through worksheets and sample problems. We focused on algebraic concepts for a good portion of this time -- as they pertain to the Quantitative Reasoning -- with the work revolving around solving equations and adding fractions with unlike denominators. We then moved on to QR flashcards, working through around 10 problems so that the student can continue to see what sort of things he will see on this section of the exam. The concepts we covered today are ones which he has found particularly difficult in the past few weeks to keep a firm hold on in his mind, so I wanted to give them extra attention today. Next, I had him work through a vocabulary packet I had printed out prior to the session so that he could get more 6th-grade words under his belt in a more concrete way. The packet featured an overview and passage utilizing the words, along with their concise definitions. Some of the activities included using the words in sentences and matching them with their synonyms and antonyms. The rest of the packet will be saved for work/ review in between tutoring sessions. We finished up today by discussing his progress and plans to prepare for the next full-length practice test so that he can improve his score on that one before taking the actual exam in November.

Today I worked with Student J first. We went over the reading section she did. She did very well! She only got 8 wrong (75th percentile!), and she was able to see why she got them wrong. She needs to read a bit more carefully and really check that her answers are, in fact, mentioned in the passage. Also, in inference questions, she needs to realize that the answer she thinks makes sense (even if it does logically) isn't always the one that's correct and in the passage. #1 Rule: Check the passage! Then we did a math achievement section together and she is showing definite improvement in math. I've definitely noticed an improvement in her basic math skills. She is also starting to understand concepts we've been working on for many weeks. Overall, she is making great progress. For next week, I asked her to do a verbal section. As for Student A, we went over her verbal section. She only got 5 wrong, but was in the 50th percentile. We went over the words she missed and I explained how she can use the sentences to find clues about the word in the blank. Language like "while, although, yet, but," all point to opposite words from the ones used in the other part of the sentence. "Because, and, therefore, so" point to synonyms of words used in other parts of the sentence. I know with a little more work she can get closer to that perfect score. Next, we did math achievement. I say we, but she wanted to do as much on her own as she could, to see what she would really score. She only needed my help with four questions, and got two wrong on her own before that. Again, she landed in the 50th percentile. At the end of class, I gave her practice problems for the three she had the most trouble with, and kept giving her new equations until she mastered the method. She is very bright and works very hard. I know she will reach her ISEE goal. For homework, I assigned her the math achievement section.

We worked mostly on reading comprehension as well as grammar and vocabulary. As the student's verbal ability is quite advanced, we worked on the ISEE mid-level practice exam questions, which she was able to handle fairly well. I expect her to perform exceedingly well on the English portion of the ISEE (low level). We talked about more educated guessing by way of elimination, how to analyze complex vocabulary, especially using her expertise in French. Some of the reading comprehension questions required extra explanation for her to fully grasp, but she was able to understand fully where her errors lay and reach the right answer eventually.

The student and I started going over geometry concepts. We talked about area and perimeter for quadrilaterals and for triangles. We followed up with a passage about the Fremont Indians. I left him with a writing prompt that we had worked together on about the life of a Native American. I am sending the outline for the prompt to his mother, so he can write it between sessions.

Today, we started with a vocabulary quiz. The student did well, and only missed 3 problems. Next, I went over her synonyms homework. We decided that it might be easier for her to learn word roots and prefixes/suffixes to help her learn vocabulary words. Lastly, we went over her most recent essay. There was some difficulty writing strong supporting idea paragraphs this time; her paragraphs needed more detail to connect them directly to her main idea. (The ideas were there, but the lack of explanation made it difficult to see how these ideas supported the main idea.) We talked about how those connections could be made and where in the paragraphs they would be added.

We started with a review of the verbal section, focusing on using parts of speech and word parts to eliminate answers. The student did an excellent job reasoning which words were most and least likely to be correct. We finished by continuing our work on the writing section. We went over some more ways of choosing strong main ideas and building engaging evidence for them. Next week, we will go over the practice material he's been working on.
