EOG/EOC/ISEE Test Prep

We tailor our approach differently for each student in regard to the EOG/EOC/ISEE exams. We typically have students complete a small diagnostic test, and we encourage parents to bring any prior testing evaluations, to better enable us to build the student's skill set. Our tutors:

  • Teach reasoning strategies when confronted with tricky math problems;
  • Build the student's vocabulary with the use of root words as well as common associations to analyze unfamiliar words; 
  • Show strategies on how to break down passages in reading comprehension; including, chunking, highlighting and annotating, as well as distinguishing between detail and inference questions;
