Session Summaries by ISEE Tutors

ISEE Tutoring review by Caleb in San Mateo, CA
In this last session, the student and I continued working on synonyms and sentence completion to prepare for the Verbal section of the exam. I believe she will improve her score on the test, with an improved ability to isolate context clues and words with these type of questions.

ISEE Tutoring review by Courtney in San Mateo, CA
Today the student and I spent a large majority of the time writing and going over a timed essay. She completed her essay in only 15 minutes and we talked about how she can plan more carefully and work all the way through the 45 minutes she is given for the essay. She did an excellent job picking an answer to the topic! She has improved in the math section and works more carefully in both the reading and verbal sections. I am impressed with how many strategies she is adopting and applying in our sessions.

ISEE Tutoring review by Abbi in San Mateo, CA
We went through strategies for reading comprehension and she did some practice questions. Then she did a couple practice sets of synonyms to work on vocabulary. Then she did practice questions in math and she struggled somewhat with working with fractions and adding/subtracting positive and negative numbers. We will work on this a bit more in the next few sessions. Overall she did well and is retaining some of the review strategies.

ISEE Tutoring review by Scott in San Mateo, CA
We went over the student's homework on square roots then worked on a couple of algebra concepts, and did some multiple choice problems. For the rest of the time we worked on reading comprehension and vocabulary.

ISEE Tutoring review by Lea in San Mateo, CA
Today we focused on the reading comprehension. This is definitely the student's strongest section. Not only does she move quickly through the passages but she is also very accurate. Therefore I only gave her some test taking techniques that differ depending on the type of question that is asked. I also had her look at the SSAT reading section.

ISEE Tutoring review by Ashley in San Mateo, CA
The student and I worked on the test for ISEE for lower grades. We worked specifically on math for the lower level admission test. I have seen that she does know a great deal of math, but she needs to gain the confidence in herself when it comes to being able to do the math. We will continue to focus on math and will work with fractions. She knows how to eliminate answers and does so on most problems. I would like to see her working at problems on paper instead of in her head. She is a bright student and I see her excelling in her studies throughout her education.
