The elementary school I attended focused on critical thinking skills, but not a lot of basic skills. I never took a standardized test until the ISEE practice test. Not surprisingly, my initial scores were lower than I wanted, and I wasn’t able to finish every section. Gavin at LA Tutors met with me one-on-one in my home. He was very pleasant, very patient, and very clear in explaining concepts and helping with the things I needed to memorize. He also gave me a lot of test-taking strategies and practice tests. When I walked into the ISEE test, my friends and peers were nervous. I was relaxed. I took the test completely, on my time. I finished every question and was very confident in my results. My stanine scores went up by over 3 points on all sections compared to my initial scores. I also learned strategies and concepts that I apply in school, so LA Tutors was a win for me. A big thumbs UP!!!
