Customized Scheduling

Our Approach

The first thing we do is learn about your tutoring needs, schedule, and your child’s experience with the exam so we can match you with a tutor who best suits your child’s specific needs and learning style.

We pride ourselves on taking an individualized approach to our ISEE tutoring. We know that “teaching to the test” is only going to work as a short-term fix, but won’t actually help your child when it comes to retaining the information. So instead we create a custom lesson plan for each student that helps them actually learn and apply the material. This way they can take what they learn in tutoring and apply it in the classroom as well as on their exam.

Do you have multiple children preparing for the ISEE? No problem! We offer group tutoring on an as-needed basis whenever you’re ready. Available both online and in-person, we do everything we can to match your busy lifestyle and your child’s personal learning needs.

When the time comes for your child to start your ISEE prep, some of the information we’ll need includes:

  • 1
    Has your child started any ISEE prep yet?
  • 2
    Do you have a test date scheduled?
  • 3
    Has your child taken the ISEE test before?
  • 4
    Have they taken a practice test?
  • 5
    How did they score on each section?
  • 6
    What areas does your child struggle with?
  • 7
    What areas are they strong in?
  • 8
    What are your best days/times to meet with a tutor?
  • 9
    Do you prefer in-person or online tutoring?

New to ISEE prep? Here’s some information about the ISEE test:

The Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE) is a type of entrance exam used in the admissions process for independent and magnet schools. It is also considered to be one of the more competitive testing options, though ideal scores depend on which school your child is applying to. The ISEE is available in four different levels depending on the grade your child is entering: Primary (grades 2-4), Lower (grades 5-6), Middle (grades 7-8), and Upper (grades 9-12).

Don’t know where to start?

Our ISEE prep tutors are here to help! In addition to helping you set up a customized study schedule, your tutor will help determine what your child’s strengths and weaknesses are so you know how to plan out their ISEE prep.
