What is ISEE Test?

ISEE stands for Independent School Entrance Exam. It is an admission test for private middle schools and high schools. You have to take this test if you are aiming to switch to a private school and do not want to take SSAT. Most private schools accept both SSAT and ISEE exam scores and students can take any of them according to your abilities and preference.

ISEE test prep has five sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Math Achievement, Reading Comprehension and Writing (optional). These sections are compulsory for all levels except Primary level which has only reading, math and optional writing section.

It was my first experience with an online tutor for my child. During this pandemic it was basically the only way to go. I made the best choice when I choose etutorworld. The tutor was awesome and patient with her and he provided her with ways to study. I will recommend etutorworld to anyone that is seeking to adhere to social distancing and even for future studies. GREAT JOB!!
