The ISEE (or Independent School Entrance Exam) is a test that students may take to get into schools with selective enrollment. The ISEE-Middle Level is the exam for students in 7th and 8th grade and consists of five sections, including one on reading comprehension. If your child needs a boost in order to reach their academic goals, Varsity Tutors can refer you to an experienced ISEE-Middle Level Reading Comprehension tutor who meets all of your needs.
The Reading Comprehension portion of the exam consists of six reading passages on a variety of topics, including history, literature, science, and contemporary life. Students are expected to read these passages and then answer questions based on the following bullet points:
Inferences based on the text
Tone, Style, and Figurative Language
Students only have 35 minutes to read all six passages and answer a total of 36 multiple-choice questions, each with four answer choices. That is not a lot of time, so effective time management skills are often a priority during ISEE-Middle Level Reading Comprehension prep. The best way to illustrate this is through timed practice exams taken during ISEE-Middle Level Reading Comprehension tutoring sessions.
One proven time-saving technique is "active reading," in this case noting down the lines that important information appears on for future reference. Not only does this increase how much of the material a student retains, it also makes it easier to go back and look for something to double-check a response. If your child is not in the habit of jotting down tidbits as they read, this skill may be practiced during their ISEE-Middle Level Reading Comprehension tutoring sessions.
Likewise, an ISEE-Middle Level Reading Comprehension tutor may be able to share test-taking strategies that a student can fall back on if they are unsure of an answer. If you need to take a guess, getting your odds to 1-in-3 or even 1-in-2 can be highly beneficial.
ISEE-Middle Level Reading Comprehension tutoring sessions also allow students to build a personal rapport with their instructor. If they have a hard time recalling all of the figurative language that could appear in a given document, flashcards may be created to make them easier to study. Working with a private tutor also allows students to receive timely responses to any questions asked.
