Our Proven Approach to Test Prep
Students start with a full-length diagnostic/ practice test to evaluate their current strengths and weaknesses. The test should be as realistic as possible including timed conditions.
Upon scoring the test, our tutors and managers will evaluate the student’s position and outline a roadmap for improvement. The tutor will discuss test-taking strategies and general tips.
Concept review comprises the bulwark of ISEE test prep. To do well, students must have a firm grasp of the tested math and reading concepts. No amount of tips and tricks will compensate for not knowing fractions or how to identify a main idea.
As students strengthen their fundamental math and reading skills, they must still be able to apply that knowledge to the new and novel ways tested on the ISEE reasoning sections. The best way to ensure this capability is to work many test-like practice questions.
The process of ISEE test prep is continual, and the duration and intensity of preparation will depend on the disparity between the student’s starting place and desired outcome. Most of our students will take a minimum of 3 full-length practice tests and 2 official tests.
