From our founder

Fifteen years ago, I started a company that really changed the landscape of tutoring and test preparation in New York City. I was 20 years old at the time and a student at Columbia University (after having graduated from Bronx Science). My vision was to build a network of Ivy League students and graduates who would act as tutors and mentors for school-aged kids through the 12th grade. I am proud to say that this vision is now a reality!


IVY is New York’s leader in subject help and test preparation, known for the best hiresknowledgeable service and reasonable pricing. We work with New York students to help them achieve their scholastic potentialretain knowledge, increase confidence, and receive higher scores on exams. Whatever the student’s needs, we’ve been there, and we can share our expertise with you. In fact, thousands of families have counted on us over the years to provide professional and energetic tutors who are able to connect to students on a level parents and teachers cannot always reach.


Education is not one-size-fits-all. We offer a highly personalized service and that’s one of the reasons it works so well. My promise to our clients is that we will find the right match for your child – your child will excel in school, have a deeper understanding of the coursework, have increased confidence overall and will learn valuable skills from an elite group of hand-picked tutors, skills that will carry him/her through high school, college and beyond.


Here is why we are New York’s most trusted name in tutoring:


  • Our tutors are experts in their subjects; they are undergraduate and graduate school students or recent graduates from the country’s top universities.
  • We personally interview and coach each of our 50+ tutors!
