How can a tutor help your child master the ISEE?

If your child is preparing to take the Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE) at either the lower, middle, or upper level, you may want to consider finding them their own tutor for test prep assistance. The results of this exam are weighed in the admissions process for competitive elementary, middle, and high schools (depending on the level). Therefore, having your child prepared for this exam is extremely important. Varsity Tutors can assist you in finding a Chicago, Illinois, ISEE tutor. Your child's tutor can work around your family's schedule, meeting with your child at a time and place that is most convenient to your scheduling needs. They can also work with your child online or in person!

There are five timed sections of the exam for your child and their tutor to go through: verbal reasoning (20 minutes), quantitative reasoning (35 minutes), reading comprehension (25 minutes), math achievement (30 minutes), and an essay (30 minutes). A private ISEE tutor in Chicago can work with your child on areas that they do not fully understand. They can also give practice exams to better pinpoint exactly where your child most needs their assistance. From there, they can work with your child on these concepts in depth, with a study plan tailored to your student's personal learning needs. This means they can skip over areas your child has already mastered. There's no need to cover algebraic concepts, for example, if your child understands these just fine but struggles with figurative language. This way, your child and their tutor can spend extra, valuable time on the areas where assistance is actually needed.

Session Summaries by ISEE Tutors

ISEE Tutoring review by Denise in Chicago, IL
The student was enthusiastic to work on test prep today as he received a practice exercise in reading comprehension from his teacher to complete as homework. We completed this practice session together as a timed exercise and he was able to finish with two minutes to spare. He's becoming much more comfortable timing himself and even remarked "I only have three minutes left. I'd better answer the rest of these questions." We also completed a word/graph based math exercise. He is making progress. I'm working on offering him multiple methods of problem solving in the hopes he'll find one or two that come naturally to him.

ISEE Tutoring review by Evan in Chicago, IL
Had my last session with the student today! She's truly been a pleasure to work with, and I am so proud of her progress with vocabulary and math throughout the year. We had another good session today and I was sad to say goodbye. Good luck to her!

ISEE Tutoring review by Audrey in Chicago, IL
Today we began with a small amount of grammar overview involving commas and punctuation. Then we switched off between writing small paragraphs for practice and reading short articles to test the main idea and author's purpose of passages. We did several exercises of vocab practice as well as sentence completion drills. The student is able to recognize grammatical errors in examples, so now we're working on applying them in his own writing. He's a funny writer; we're practicing adding detail and description to assertions he makes. With practice he will most definitely improve!

ISEE Tutoring review by Sherry in Chicago, IL
The student worked on multiplication skills and was also introduced to simple variable substitution. He practiced vocabulary and root word recognition. He also was introduced to topic sentence and developing an essay. He wrote a short piece on what he is going to do when he vacations in the Bahamas. We looked at grammar and flow of his short essay, and explored topic development.

ISEE Tutoring review by Nikki in Chicago, IL
The student read me the essay she had written and corrected a few simple grammatical mistakes she had made. We then read the sample essays they had in her test book, and talked about what made them bad or good, and I reminded her to watch the clock to make sure she had a few minutes to read over what she had written. Then we went through some flashcards.

ISEE Tutoring review by Lauren in Chicago, IL
We briefly reviewed what we completed during the last session, and began reviewing the math concepts found at the back of his ISEE book. Specifically, we practiced adding/subtracting negative numbers, fraction/decimal conversions, double/triple-digit multiplication and division, and order of operations ("PEMDAS").
