Upper Level ISEE Kickstart Program


Common App Personal Statement Workshop

Upper Level ISEE Kickstart Program

As the end of seventh grade approaches, so does high school application season, and students need to begin preparation for the Upper Level ISEE. The ISEE is a five-section, 2.5-hour exam that assesses students on a range of math, reading, verbal, and writing skills, some of which are not covered in a standard middle school curriculum.

Studying for a test with such breadth may seem daunting, but during our four-day Upper Level ISEE Kickstart Program, students learn not only what is on the test but how they can prepare. Led by an Elite ISEE tutor with more than a decade of experience, this program walks students through the content on each section, introduces test-taking tips and study strategies they will need, and gives students the opportunity to explore new concepts and practice the skills they need to do their best. Students will finish the course with at least six hours of completed studying, a deep understanding of what they need to work on, and a concrete plan as they move forward.

Enrollment: Minimum two students, maximum six students. If spaces are full, please join the waitlist, and we will add an additional series of sessions pending interest.

Instructor: Madeleine Joyce

Location: Zoom

Program Duration:

Section 1: August 14th – 17th, daily from 5:00-6:30pm.

Section 2: August 21st – 24th, daily from 9:00-10:30am

Common App Personal Statement Workshop

Tackling the Common App personal statement can be a major source of stress for high school juniors and seniors. What should you write about? How can you fit all your ideas on one page? What are colleges looking for, anyway?

This workshop answers all of these questions and takes the mystery out of writing a personal statement. Our expert writing tutors have worked closely with a college consultant and former admissions officer to plan sessions that will help students identify a topic, understand what makes an essay strong, and guide them through writing their own essay. Students will finish the workshop with at least one strong personal statement so they can continue the application process knowing they have completed one major step.

This course includes two group sessions and two individual sessions.

Group Session 1: Monday, August 14th from 6:45-8:45pm EST

Group Session 2: Thursday, August 17th from 6:45-8:45pm EST

2 Individual Sessions: One hour each to take place between August 21st and August 25th (scheduling available upon enrollment)

Location: Zoom
