Test Prep Programs

When families think of college admissions requirements one of the first thing that comes to mind are competitive standardized test scores. At IvyWise, we realize the importance of these test and the anxiety they can cause parents and students. We’re here to take the pressure off and ensure students perform at their best on test day.

Every student who works with IvyWise is given a free testing diagnostic for both the SAT and ACT. The diagnostic tests are scored and analyzed by our team to provide each student an individualized assessment of their performance, with recommendations on which test is most appropriate for their abilities and what tutoring services are needed to help them reach their goal scores.

We Get Results

IvyWise tutors have rigorous experience with standardized tests, achieve superior results, and stay up-to-date on all testing changes and methodology. Our tutors have an average of 12 years of tutoring experience, and have scored in the 95th percentile or above on the standardized test to which they teach. IvyWise tutors are academically gifted and have a demonstrated record of helping students identify, meet, and exceed their goals. We provide complementary diagnostic exams to assess your student’s starting point and use those results to formulate a personalized plan to address your students areas for improvement. We continue to use diagnostic exams throughout the tutoring program to monitor your student’s progress throughout the length of the tutoring program. Our proprietary curriculum allows for a customized approach that gets the results needed to help your student meet his or her admission goals.

On average, students who complete 40 or more hours of tutoring with an IvyWise tutor increase their SAT scores by 200 points, but we have seen committed students raise their scores by as much as 650 points. The average ACT score improvement is 6 points with some IvyWise students increasing their scores by 14 points! Score improvements on SAT Subject tests average 120 points.
