Thinking about the ISEE?

More Than A Teacher is trusted by schools around the DFW Metroplex to provide their on-campus ISEE prep. This fall, your student can take advantage of our publicly available classes. The ISEE is a test many private schools require for admissions. It is most often taken by 8th grade students applying to private high schools.

 

 

ISEE Prep FAQ

When should my student take the test?

     Most students take the ISEE during the "Winter" testing window, which lasts from December to March. Within that window, the vast majority of students take the test in January.

When should ISEE tutoring start?

     We typically recommend that students start prepping in early November for a January ISEE test date. This is because a large chunk of what students are expected to know on the ISEE (in particular on the Math sections) is taught in school during the Fall semester. Starting in November means that students have maximized the amount they will learn in school while still allowing enough time to reinforce trouble areas or concepts. Teaching students material before they learn it in school typically takes significantly longer and is not recommended.

What are the sections on the ISEE?

     There are four scored sections of the ISEE along with a unscored Essay component. The four scored sections are:

          Verbal Reasoning - This section tests a student's vocab knowledge and verbal ability.

          Quantitative Reasoning - This section tests a student's ability to solve math problems.

          Reading Comprehension - This section tests a student's reading ability.

          Mathematics Achievement - This section tests how far a student has progressed in math.

          Essay (unscored) - This section will give a student an open-ended question (ie "if you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?").
