With a National Leader in One-to-One Tutoring

A Letter From Our CEO

Dear Parent-

As alumni of Phillips Andover and Sidwell Friends my co-founder and I know first-hand the benefits of a private school education. At Andover I learned as much from my peers as I did from the amazing faculty, and I had resources and facilities that would make many colleges envious. That education was probably the greatest gift my parents ever gave me, and I value it more each year.

If you are considering a competitive private school for your child, the ISEE or SSAT will be a critical component of your child’s application. We’ve been helping students prepare for these exams since the 1990’s, and are firm believers that private tutoring is the single best way to improve your child’s scores.

How Our ISEE Tutoring Works
The first step is consulting with you to get a sense for your child: his or her academic strengths and weaknesses, interests, and other factors that will help us select the right instructor from our staff. Once we’ve agreed on a strong match, your child will take a full length ISEE practice test to create a baseline and help the tutor begin to customize the program for your child.

Once underway your tutor will focus on three critical areas:

  1. The classic test taking strategies and techniques that can earn extra points.
  2. Learning and reviewing the content covered on the exam.
  3. Practice and more practice – of different question types, content areas, etc.

As your child moves through the program, we will regularly monitor his or her progress, and as necessary, make adjustments to the program. Our goal is to ensure that your child is prepared and confident on test day, and that your child achieves the best possible score.

The Keys to Our Success
We are a national leader in ISEE tutoring, and our success stems from three main factors:

  1. Personalization: private tutoring is the single most efficient and effective way for students to learn. With a private ISEE tutor your child will have the instructor’s undivided attention, and can work at a pace that is appropriate for his or her needs.
  2. Tutors: we have an exceptional team of instructors, who have been carefully screened and then trained on how to customize our ISEE curriculum to each student’s strengths and weaknesses.
  3. Convenience: we understand that tutoring is just one part of your family’s calendar, and to make things work for our families we’ve focused on private, in-home tutoring since day one. Today you have the option to have a tutor come right to your home, or to work with one of our highly experienced online ISEE tutors.

From here I encourage you to learn more about our ISEE tutoring. We’ve built our reputation on helping families achieve their educational goals, and our students have attended some of the world’s most prestigious boarding and private schools.

Dear Parent - the last year has presented challenges on so many fronts, and perhaps nowhere more so than at school. For a generation of kids who already feel more pressure than any before them, the pandemic has thrown everything into disarray - and in doing so has dramatically increased the anxiety around school and college admissions.

Against this backdrop, the most important thing for you to know about StudyPoint is that we're a national leader in both online and in-home tutoring. We've been doing in-home tutoring since the 1990's, and began offering online tutoring a decade ago. In total we've completed more than 650,000 hours of in-home tutoring and over 500,000 hours of one-to-one, online instruction. 

In most locations, if your family is ready to move back to face to face instruction, we have fully vaccinated tutors who are able to meet with your child in the convenience of your home.  If you prefer online, we have a great team of instructors who can meet with your child in our custom virtual classroom that was purpose-built for live, online tutoring. We've invested heavily in custom technology to make online instruction more effective, and in a typical year more than half of our programs are online.

And keep in mind that through years of collecting data we have found that our in-home and online student outcomes are basically identical. Whichever format is the best fit for your family right now, you can have the peace of mind that your child is working with a national leader.

We're your partner in navigating these challenging times and ensuring that your child feels like things are under control. We're here to help, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you need it.

An Approach that Addresses Your Child’s Specific Needs

When a program is designed to address the individual needs of each student, it is called Differentiated Instruction. We’re a leader in Differentiated Instruction and have structured our programs to create a personalized learning path for each student. This means your child’s program will focus exclusively on those areas where he or she needs the most help. We accomplish this in three ways:

One-to-One Tutoring

Private tutoring, by definition, is Differentiated Instruction. A private ISEE tutor can focus on your child’s specific strengths and weaknesses and move through content areas and strategies at a pace that is appropriate for your child. And since tutoring provides a safe environment for your child to ask questions and admit when he or she is confused, the instructor is well positioned to identify and address problem areas.

ISEE Practice Tests

Before meeting with the tutor, your child will take an initial Practice ISEE. This exam sets a baseline for the program and gives the instructor a sense of your child's strengths and weaknesses. Over the duration of the program your child will take at least two more full length ISEE practice tests, and the tutor will use the results from each to assess progress and continue to tailor the program to your child's specific needs.

Custom Curriculum & Personalized Homework

We built our ISEE curriculum from scratch with the goal of creating a program that is customized for the unique one-to-one tutoring dynamic. Likewise, since homework is an essential component of test preparation, one of the tutor's key responsibilities is reviewing and assigning targeted homework. The more you practice the better your scores, especially when that practice is customized to your child's needs.

How We Achieve
Our Industry-Leading Results

Proprietary Curriculum

We've been working with ISEE students since the 1990's, and have developed a custom ISEE curriculum for our tutoring programs.

Program Oversight

Your Program Manager will monitor your child's progress and, if necessary, work with you and your tutor to make adjustments.

Expert ISEE Tutors

We're extremely selective for both intellect and teaching ability, and unlike many companies we provide comprehensive training.

Matching Process

We'll work with you to find the right tutor match: someone who can explain difficult concepts and motivate your child.

ISEE Practice Tests

Practice and familiarity are essential to earning a stronger score, so we provide at least 3 full-length practice SSATs.

Time on Task

Between the tutoring, homework, and practice tests your child will spend 25-30 hours learning and building confidence for test day.

You (and your family) are busy

To be effective, an educational program has to work with your family's schedule. We make life easier by bringing the tutoring to you through two convenient options:

In home ISEE tutoring

Our flagship program, which we launched in the late 1990's, our in-home tutoring option provides you with the unparalleled convenience and personalized attention of a private ISEE tutor who will work with your child right at your kitchen table. All lessons are one-to-one, and your instructor will ensure that each session is highly focused on your child’s unique needs.

Online ISEE Tutoring

Instead of meeting at the kitchen table your child and the tutor meet in a custom online learning environment. This innovative tool enables them to talk through strategies and complete practice problems, just as they would on a workbook at your kitchen table. Online ISEE tutoring replicates the in-person tutoring dynamic, and it’s remarkably effective.
