Though once viewed solely as an alternative to the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT), the Independent School Entry Exam (ISEE) has come to command respect of its own within the academic community. Today, many prestigious private schools prefer the ISEE to the SSAT and some even require it. At Prepped and Polished, our team has years of experience helping students in Massachusetts, across the country and around the globe achieve their optimum score on the ISEE no matter what age they are, learning preferences they have or level of the ISEE they are planning to take. We meet with your student one-on-one to provide them with the personalized attention they need to succeed. Your child will take an initial practice ISEE Test, under our supervision, to provide them with first-hand test-taking experience and to give us data to tailor their curriculum directly to their learning style and needs.
For young students taking the ISEE, standardized testing can present itself as a foreign and uncomfortable experience. We demystify the ISEE by familiarizing your child with the specific time and directional parameters for each of the test’s five sections. In doing so, we find students are better able to relax and settle into their test-taking strategy with effective results. At Prepped and Polished, our tutors will provide your student with personalized insights that are specific to the ISEE. Did you know there are no penalties for skipping questions on the ISEE like there are on the SSAT – or that the second math section is significantly longer than the first? We’ll also reveal general test taking secrets like how to manage your test day routine for stress reduction and maximum efficiently.
