Expert, Engaging Tutors
Our master tutors are the best of the best. They have unparalleled qualifications, having excelled academically and aced all of their standardized tests. Our tutors are more than just academically gifted, though. They are approachable and exceptional at connecting with students; your child will remain engaged throughout the tutoring experience and excited about learning. Our tutors build students' confidence while helping them develop effective learning skills, strategies, and techniques.
More Than Just Test Prep
Before the IvyWise test preparation program begins, a testing expert will determine whether your student is better suited for the SAT or ACT. We provide an assessment on the areas your student should strengthen as he or she prepares for standardized tests. This preliminary evaluation will ensure efficient use of time and resources. With our integrated team approach, your student's IvyWise counselor will be attuned to your student's tutoring progress at all times.
Realistic Practice Tests with Your Student in Mind
To supplement their tutoring, students take practice exams under test conditions and receive comprehensive feedback during post-test reviews. Practice tests also identify areas of focus for future instruction. Students and parents are able to access and track practice test results and can also have access to our dedicated tutoring concierge if they wish.
"I loved taking tutoring sessions with [my IvyWise tutor]. Whenever I had a question [my tutor] answered it right away and was always available. Even though it was through Skype and I was reluctant at first because I had never done Skype, I learned a lot from his tutoring sessions and they really helped me."
