Class Descriptions (2017)

Intensive Course
(30 Hours)

Our two-week summer course provides intensive and thorough coverage of both substantive and strategic ISEE preparation. An overview of strategies will be included for all four sections of the exam (Verbal, Reading, Math, and the Writing Sample), as well as structured vocabulary building, a thorough math concepts review, and an introduction to structured essay-writing.

The format and substance of the review will be shaped by the skill level of the students. Students will begin by working both collaboratively and individually as they apply new strategies. As the course progresses, there will be ample opportunities to practice in realistic test conditions.Daily homework assignments are given, with flexible options provided to students with less free time. Each class is taught by an experienced instructor with the help of a teaching assistant.

Regular Course
(24 Hours)

There are two formats to the eight-week course: (a) 3-hour classes every Saturday; and (b) 2-hour classes twice weekly. The course seeks to provide a general overview of both test content and test-taking strategies for the ISEE, with additional opportunities for in-class practice as the course progresses. In order to maximize the use of class time, students are given homework assignments to reinforce the material covered. At the end of the course, each student will receive a full progress report and a roadmap to structure their further study.

Crash Course
(18 Hours)

The Crash Course provides a condensed overview of test content and strategy. The class will review the math, reading, verbal, and essay-writing concepts tested by the ISEE. Students will also be introduced to the most effective test-taking methods. Homework assignments are given to reinforce the material covered. Guided by the instructor, students will discuss and develop longer-term study schedules to structure their test preparation after the end of the course.
