Help Your Child Ace The ISEE

The ISEE represent the first exposure to standardized testing for many students, and almost all of those students would rather be doing just about anything besides preparing for it.

Never fear, though—our ISEE sensei specialize in working with younger students, and more importantly they love doing it. Your Pro will make the ISEE prep process as engaging and stress-free as possible.

Get Expert Help For the SSAT

The SSAT tests a wide range of content, much of which students may not have encountered before. Add to that the challenging, unique question-types and this exam can start to feel like the test equivalent of a really bad headache. Fortunately, we know some people who can help.

Our SSAT gurus have decades of experience helping students beat this test, and they enjoy nothing more than seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they do.

Online & In-Person Programs Designed Around You

Online ISEE & SSAT tutoring allows students to work with a tutor from the comfort of their own home or school computer lab. With an online tutor, you can get help from anywhere in the world! Online tutoring is also ideal for busy students who have limited time for travel or school breaks.

If you prefer working with an in-person teacher, then in-person ISEE or SSAT tutoring may be right for you. With in-person tutors, you can meet face-to-face at a location near your home or school. In person tutors also offer more flexibility than online tutors because they can work around your schedule and travel to your home or location of choice.

Vanessa is currently finishing up her PhD in Chemistry at Princeton University, where she also tutors and serves as a teaching assistant in introductory chemistry courses. She plans to enter medical school next year, and having scored in the 99th percentile on the MCAT, is well-equipped to help others prepare for the exam. Although she prefers to work with students by meeting regularly so as to develop a good rapport and a better understanding of their learning style, Vanessa is also available for review sessions just before an exam.

David Allely

David has tutored students since 2017 in General, Organic, and Biochemistry, as well as Genetics and a few other Biology courses. He loves working with and learning from students, solving problems and sharing how to strategically prepare for a test like the MCAT. Having scored a 132 on CARS, he hopes to help students improve in what is for many a particularly challenging section. When he's not studying or tutoring, he's often outdoors, exercising, or watching sports with friends and family.

Brandon Pham, MD

Brandon understands the strengths & weaknesses of resources from different test prep companies and takes pride in tailoring sessions to students’ unique needs. He realizes that succeeding in standardized exams often requires more than just a strong understanding of content, but rather a diverse repertoire of reliable test-taking strategies and behaviors that will consistently lead to the correct answer. Brandon knows firsthand that with the right resources and support, any student can achieve their target score.

Jonathan Rosenthal, MD

Jonathan is a resident physician at NYU School of Medicine. He graduated with a Summa Cum Laude Bachelor of Science in Neural Science from NYU’s College of Arts and Science, and an Accelerated 3-Year MD from NYU’s School of Medicine. He views science and math as sophisticated languages for distilling the simple from the complex, and loves sharing his excitement for these fields. After years of practicing and refining his studentship, he strives to share the tips and tricks he has learned to help students build their understanding. He believes that understanding is the goal, and tests are just a measure of understanding. The successful academic path is paved by placing the focus on understanding, not memorization, and removing any obstacles that impede the measurement of understanding (e.g. test anxiety).

Erik Kolb

Erik is a broadly experienced tutor who works with students in person in the greater Washington, D.C. area and globally online. Before joining Inspirica Pros, Erik taught a wide variety of subjects both in the classroom and one-on-one for a nationally-recognized test prep company from 2005 to 2018. He has worked with thousands of students of all ages and score levels and has helped them to meet and often exceed their score goals. His goal when working with students is always first and foremost to help them to be prepared, confident, and ready to meet any testing challenge they may face. Moreover, Erik’s deep knowledge of undergraduate and graduate admissions makes him an outstanding resource for students who need help with their application process, whether it’s choosing the right school or crafting the perfect essay.

Nitai Melnick

Nitai Melnick began tutoring in high school when a teacher approached him about helping fellow students learn AP Physics. Since then he has leaned on his experience as a student to inform his tutoring. In college, after getting his first taste of computer programming, Nitai volunteered to tutor fellow students struggling in the course and was later hired by Princeton to teach a section of organic chemistry. After graduation, Nitai spent a year teaching pre-medical students who were preparing for the MCAT and other entrance exams.

Frequently Asked Questions About ISEE & SSAT Tutoring

The ISEE is a challenging test. It's a lot of material to cover and the questions are challenging. But with the right ISEE tutoring, you can be prepared and confident.

The ISEE is an achievement test that measures how well students do on a range of subjects in grades 3-8. The test is designed to measure academic skills, including reading comprehension, mathematics, science and social studies.

It can be difficult for parents to know when their child should start preparing for the test because there are so many factors involved in determining how well a student will do on the exam. For example, if your child has special needs that affect her learning, she may need extra time to fully understand key concepts on the test. If you suspect that your child might have difficulties with reading comprehension or writing skills (or both), consider hiring an ISEE tutor who can help him develop these skills before taking the test.

ISEE tutoring sessions are always customized to meet the needs of each student. This can include:


  • Reviewing your child's previous work and any ISEE test prep materials they've already used (if applicable)


  • Identifying areas that need more attention, such as particular subject areas or skills, and creating a customized study plan to address those weaknesses


  • Helping your child understand how to tackle questions in the different sections of the test (verbal, quantitative, etc.) and providing tips for taking full advantage of the time allotted on each section


  • Providing additional practice problems that are similar to those found on the actual exam

In addition to reviewing material with your child and providing test-taking strategies, we also work with students to build their confidence in their own abilities so they feel prepared for whatever comes their way when it comes time for them to take the ISEE.

When looking for an ISEE tutor, it is important to find a person who will be able to provide your child with an appropriate level of instruction. There are many different types of ISEE tutors and some may be better suited for your child than others.

Some private schools require the SSAT, while other private schools accept either the SSAT or ISEE.

State-funded schools, on the other hand, only accept the ISEE. The reason for this is simple: The ISEE is a more comprehensive test than the SSAT, so students who do well on it tend to do well in high school as well.

In addition to these differences between private schools and state-funded schools, there are also significant differences between public schools and charter schools. Public schools are funded by taxes and therefore must serve all students regardless of their ability level or economic status. Charter schools may be funded differently depending on where they're located and what kind of school they are (e.g., elementary vs middle vs high school).

The answer is no. The ISEE does not penalize for wrong answers. 

Note that the ISEE does allow you to skip questions. You can choose which sections of the test you want to take, and then go back through them later. This is a good way to ensure that you are confident with all of the material before moving on to the next section. You can also choose how many questions you want to answer from each section before going on to the next one. The choice is entirely up to you, so there is no need to worry about being penalized if you change your mind later on in the process.
