Private School Admissions Test Prep
ERB & ISEE Tutoring Services in NYC
The Education Records Bureau (ERB) administers the Early Childhood Admissions Assessment (ECAA) on an individual basis. This assessment exam has become a part of the admissions process for most private elementary schools. The ECAA is available to children applying to private schools from Pre-K to grade 4.
The Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) is also administered by the Educational Records Bureau (ERB), and is recommended for students applying to private schools in grades 2-12. The Study Shack offers test preparation sessions for the ISEE Primary (entering grades 2 – 4), lower level (entering grades 5-6), middle level (entering grades 7-8), and upper level (entering grades 9-12). At the primary level the ISEE is composed of 3 sections: Reading Comprehension, Mathematics Achievement, and a Writing Sample. For entering grade 2 there is an auditory comprehension section in addition to the other sections. At the lower, middle, and upper levels the ISEE test is composed of five sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Mathematics Achievement, and Essay.
The Study Shack’s ERB & ISEE private tutors and test prep specialists will assist your child with a review of academic material for each of the sub-tests given, and improve test taking and time management skills.
The Study Shack tutors will work with your child up until test day, reviewing the question types they will find on the exam, and going over test prep material and study guides they have prepared specifically for you child's learning goals and needs.
