ISEE-Upper Level Verbal Reasoning Tutoring FAQ
The ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) Upper Level is a test that students in grades 8-11 may take to enroll in grades 9-12 at a private school. The exam has five sections, the first of which is called Verbal Reasoning. This section tests a candidate's vocabulary and inference skills, leaving analysis to later sections of the exam. If your child is struggling to prepare for this test, Varsity Tutors can refer you to an experienced ISEE-Upper Level Verbal Reasoning tutor who can help them work toward academic success.
Here are some of the benefits of ISEE-Upper Level Verbal Reasoning tutoring:
A private learning environment catering to your child's needs
Access to a knowledgeable expert who can answer any questions you have
The ability to take practice tests to prepare for exam day
Proven test-taking strategies if a student needs to guess
There are two types of questions on the Verbal Reasoning portion: synonyms and sentence completions. The synonym questions provide one word and then four possible choices, among which students are expected to select the one closest in meaning to the first word. The sentence completion questions consist of sentences with blanks that students are expected to fill in using one of the four answers provided. Both formats are unique, so students may benefit from taking practice exams during ISEE-Upper Level Verbal Reasoning tutoring sessions until it feels more familiar.
The section as a whole consists of 40 multiple-choice questions over 20 minutes, meaning that students need to average an answer every 30 seconds (or less if they want to be able to review their work). Again, an ISEE-Upper Level Verbal Reasoning tutor may administer timed practice exams to help their pupil maintain uninterrupted concentration for that long. An intimate knowledge of the directions can also save a little time on test day, so students should be encouraged to ask any format questions they have before sitting for the exam.
Private high school ISEE-Upper Level Verbal Reasoning tutoring sessions also allow students to build a personal rapport with their tutor. A visual learner might benefit from using flashcards to improve their vocabulary skills, while an auditory learner may learn to read the sentence in their mind to get a feel for how it sounds.
