ISEE &SSAT STRATEGIES For Private School Admissions

Discovery Academy has developed some of the most inventive strategies in the test preparation industry to help students achieve a high degree of success on standardized tests. On the ISEE and SSAT, students are taught strategies to tackle difficult math, reading and vocabulary questions. They are taught why it is always better to guess than to omit, when and how to use approximation to solve math problems, how to determine the general nature of a word based on various factors and which reading answers are most likely to be correct. This and so much more will be at your child’s fingertips when taking the ISEE or SSAT.

Discovery’s skill-building materials ate effective in helping students learn and strengthen basic math, reading and vocabulary skills. And while the immediate goal is to raise test scores, the peripheral benefits to students who go through our ISEE and SSAT program are many. Students learn basic etymology, including common prefixes, word roots and suffixes. They will review all relevant math formulas and concepts and will learn effective reading techniques.

Why choose Discovery for ISEE Preparation?

Considered one of the best preparation courses for the ISEE exam in the country, the Discovery ISEE course was designed ground up specifically for the ISEE Exam. Our material is entirely researched and developed by the Discovery staff and up-to-date with the latest ISEE exam changes. The course is offered in a classroom setting or through private instruction, so you are sure to find a schedule that meets your needs.

The quality of any course depends on the material and the instructor involved. Most tutoring services and independent tutors provide general tutoring assistance but do not have any proprietary materials related to the ISEE nor do they really focus on strategies for test taking. Our program incorporates all of these components and has top notch instructors. Each instructor is a specialist in his or her subject area, and each course is typically taught by 3-4 instructors.

How do I register for an ISEE Prep course?
