How can a ISEE- Lower Level tutor help you?
The Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) Lower Level exam is designed to measure the mathematics, quantitative, reading, verbal, and writing abilities of students seeking to gain entrance into an independent school for grades five and six. This may be your child's first time sitting for a formal standardized test, making it imperative to properly prepare him or her for exam day by reviewing test materials and clearly explaining what to expect. If your child is in fourth or fifth grade and is planning to take the ISEE Lower Level exam, consider ISEE Lower Level tutoring. Varsity Tutors' educational directors can help you connect to tutors. The hand-chosen tutors are capable of teaching to your child's specific needs. Your child can then be matched with a qualified tutor dedicated to helping him or her achieve his or her test-taking goals.
Varsity Tutors' educational directors can help you create a profile for your child that shares details that can play an important role in his or her tutoring needs. You can tell them about any preparation materials or study groups your child has participated in, as well as their timetable, school of choice, and scheduling needs. If you have specific concerns for your child, such as a particular section of the exam, you can share this to be better matched to a tutor who can focus your child's attention on these areas.
The verbal reasoning portion of the ISEE Lower Level test contains both sentence completion and vocabulary questions. The reading comprehension portion of the exam asks students to read a passage and then answer multiple-choice questions relevant to the content of the selection. The writing sample is not formally scored, but it can be used by schools to assess your child's compositional skills. ISEE Lower Level tutoring can help your child identify and address any issues he or she might be having with these parts of the test by first assessing your child's performance on similar questions and then developing an individualized learning plan that targets those weaknesses in their performance. A personal instructor's goal is to give your child the confidence and the skills necessary to attain their highest possible exam score on the ISEE Lower Level test.
The mathematics achievement and quantitative reasoning sections of the ISEE Lower Level exam represent a different challenge from the verbal portions of the test. The quantitative reasoning portion consists of word problems that require simple calculation, and the mathematics achievement section asks your student to find the solution to problems requiring one or more computational steps. An ISEE Lower Level tutor, can work with your child to fill in any gaps in his or her mathematical skill set. Your tutor can then teach your child valuable test-taking strategies specifically geared toward fostering success on the ISEE Lower Level exam. Throughout the tutoring sessions, you receive ongoing progress reports of your child's development.
A personal tutor understands that your child may have a busy schedule with school and extracurricular activities, but they will make every effort to make tutoring convenient for you. Your chosen tutor sets their own schedule around your availability, allowing them to be flexible with regard to the times and the places that they can meet with you. You can have them meet your child in person at your home, as well as for face-to-face online tutoring sessions, which offer ultimate flexibility to a busy lifestyle.
