IvyWise Tutoring – Prepare with the Best

Admissions committees evaluate students holistically, with a student’s transcript being the most important element of the application and standardized test scores also playing a key role. IvyWise’s expert tutors support students academically to ensure their transcripts are as strong as possible, and provide comprehensive test prep services to help them to ace standardized tests.

Academic excellence is necessary, but not sufficient on its own to gain admission at the most selective schools. Holistic admissions also places increasing importance on an applicant’s soft factors, as schools are seeking students who will contribute to the community, add to diversity, and who have explored and pursued their academic interests independently. Our tutors have a wide array of academic and professional backgrounds and can mentor students on projects in their areas of interest.

IvyWise tutors have been working with students around the world via Zoom for years, so they are well-versed in creating engaging and impactful virtual learning experiences in order to maximize outcomes. IvyWise tutors can support your student no matter the location, format, subject, or grade level with our customized virtual and concierge, in-person options.

Project Mentorship

In additional to academic excellence, admissions committees also want to see students who have demonstrated an eagerness to explore and pursue their intellectual interests. IvyWise tutors have a variety of specialties, from art and humanities to business and science, and can help students examine and hone these interests through independent projects from concept to completion. Students come away with solid deliverables they can feature on their college applications. Some mentorship project examples include:

Develop a simple iPhone app or game with Swift
Create a basic computer game using Python
Learn and create financial models in Excel
Research and write a blog about science, technology, and medicine
