High School Admissions

ISEE

Private ISEE Tutoring


Since 2005, we have helped numerous students improve their confidence and scores on the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE), required for admission to many private elementary, middle, and high schools. Combined with our academic subject tutoring, we provide the most comprehensive program to increase your child’s chances of acceptance to his or her dream school. Our clients have even included other professionals in the field of education - teachers, Ivy League professors, and members of the Princeton University administration. Our exceptional private tutors will create a customized approach tailored specifically for your needs. After each session, you'll receive a detailed progress report to track your child's improvement.

What further differentiates us from the competition is our genuine desire to help your child succeed. Both Kevin and I started tutoring in high school and continued throughout our college years at Princeton and beyond. We chose to tutor because it was extremely rewarding and something we truly enjoyed. 

Princeton Tutoring was born out of the early successes of our former clients and our desire to provide high-quality tutoring to other families. We understand better than most what parents are looking for, what children need, and which qualities make the best tutors.

Thank you for considering us. We look forward to speaking with you and working with your child to help fulfill his or her academic potential.

Sincerely,

Greg Wong Kevin Wong

Princeton Tutoring's ISEE Methodology


Either the Independent School Entrance Exam or the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) is required for admission to many private elementary, middle, and high schools. The ISEE is developed by the Educational Records Bureau and while it has no relation to the SSAT, is a very similar test. (The SSAT, in turn, is organized similarly to the SAT, though it has no relation to the SAT or College Board.)

Some consider the ISEE and SSAT as an indication of future performance on the SAT.

What is the one most important factor for an increased SAT score?

Practice! If your child is self-motivated and has the time to prepare on his or her own, then there’s actually no need for one of our tutors. Unfortunately, most high school students are busy with an increasingly difficult and time-consuming academic workload, not to mention numerous extracurricular activities.

What are the benefits of private SAT tutoring?

One of the main benefits of our private SAT tutors is to ensure that your child is preparing efficiently to maximize results in the shortest amount of time.

Additionally, while we teach your child the most useful strategies and tips needed to succeed on the SAT, our main focus is on making sure your child truly understands the concepts tested.

The Process:

  1. Diagnostic test from a real College Board exam to accurately identify weaknesses and strengths
  2. Development of customized curriculum
  3. One-on-one tutoring sessions to work on problem areas and review strategies
  4. Assignment and review of homework and practice problems
  5. Timed practice tests to track improvement
  6. Practice, review, practice, review, practice!
