Home Learning Services

Our expert tutors have studied pedagogy and understand the difficulties young children have in navigating a new academic environment. This makes them uniquely qualified in helping the way your child learns by applying different methods and techniques of teaching and delivering them in a one-on-one setting. Our tutors understand that creating good study habits at this time in a child’s life can be most important to their future success. This means that our tutors come with a variety of tools to help each child’s individual learning process. We provide in-home or virtual tutoring to families throughout the Los Angeles area and beyond. We also provide in-home or virtual tutoring for small groups up to 6. If you and some friends or parents in the same class want to arrange for a small group to be taught together, we are more than happy to help!

ISEE/HSPT Prep for students grade 5-12

The Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE®) is an admissions exam used for entry to many independent, private, and boarding schools in the United States. The ISEE® is developed and administered by the Educational Records Bureau (ERB).

The ISEE® has three levels:

Lower Level: for entrance into grades 5th and 6th
Middle Level: for entrance into grades 7th and 8th
Upper Level: for entrance into grades 9th-12th

All levels consist of five sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Mathematics Achievement, and an unscored 30-minute essay sent to the applicant’s school.

The ISEE® is intended to measure a student’s ability to learn as well as assesses a student’s strengths and weaknesses in mathematics and reading.

Other schools require a HSPT (High School Placement Test). The HSPT® is a comprehensive placement test for eighth graders for placement in Private High Schools.

Having worked with students across the world (many of our students are often being relocated from other states/countries), The Whitney Guide team is able to see where the student’s strength and weakness in testing lies. Our tutors work individually with these students to strengthen areas of weakness and to prepare them for the very important writing portion of the ISEE® and HSPT.

Our Happy Parents

Covid-19 Update: As some families may not feel comfortable going back to school in the fall, The Whitney Guide is working hard to support them during this time of uncertainty. Our tutors are carefully screened and take the highest sanitary precautions possible. We offer small pod summer learning solutions, one on one, and zoom classes. The application process may look different due to Covid-19 and most schools are not requiring the ISEE.
