- We are -
New York's Most Trusted Name in Tutoring
- Find a Mentor -
IVY's tutors connect with students on a level that adults and parents are not always able to access. Our Ivy League and top tier university tutors are experts in their fields and are able to clearly present and convey complicated information. College bound students also profit from the experiences their tutors are able to share with them as mentors. We match students with tutors by weighing personality, skill level and many other factors, including hobbies and interests.
- Improve Your Scores -
We have a data-driven and highly personalized approach to test prep that won't break the bank. SAT, ACT, ISEE, SSAT, and SHSAT students start by taking diagnostic exams enabling tutors to pinpoint the student's weaker areas and teach the tricks and strategies needed to beat the test! Once the material has been mastered, students continue to take mock exams and are provided with detailed reporting so tutors can create a personalized and efficient program that gives students their maximum score increase.
- Gain Confidence -
Our goal is to help each student find the joy in learning. We've all encountered difficult subject matter that left us wanting to give up. IVY's mission is to help students struggling with difficult subjects by connecting them to tutors who are so passionate about their fields that it's contagious. Whether it's a difficult to understand teacher, an unfortunate textbook or a learning difference, we can help you find your New York City tutor in math, biology, chemistry, Spanish, French and much more.
