English, reading, and writing skills are essential at every grade level and for all career paths. A strong foundation in understanding and using the English language helps make any subject or assignment easier.
Our New York tutors prep students for Common Core Assessments, from elementary to High School. We can help with foundational reading skills or aid NYC high schoolers on their paths to becoming essay-writing experts. Students can work with us to help with a particular paper or on an ongoing basis for more development and support.
NYC students are required to take a Regents exam in English, usually in their junior year of high school. Our tutors help students ace this exam, which follows Common Core English standards. Students who excel in English should consider taking AP English (either Language or Literature or both). Given in May, AP exams are both challenging and a great way to show universities that you can excel in college level classes. Our NYC tutors have helped students score 5s on both AP English exams for over 15 years!
Learning to conduct proper research, create a strong outline, and write convincing essays are skills that take a good teacher and lots of practice. But learning these methods -- including inductive and deductive reasoning and thesis creation -- makes any subject easier and helps students learn to present compelling arguments outside of school as well. Our NYC English tutors help students with these very important building blocks that too many students are missing.
The college application process requires a high level of proficiency and aptitude in grammar, reading comprehension, expository writing and even, creative writing. Our test prep tutors are experts in the test prep strategies, the concepts, and in building a personalized program for each student -- all the ingredients needed to show the greatest improvement on standardized tests and to write a winning personal statement or college essay.
Our NYC ESL tutors help kids and adults who are learning English as a second language succeed. We are happy to help students master anything from basics to grammar and conversation to becoming a better writer.
Only the most knowledgeable and caring tutors.
Our hiring process includes resume submission, reference checks, education verification, a background check, phone and in person interviews, and a teaching test.
"We have enjoyed the SAT tutoring and our daughter’s performance has vastly improved with your help—you made her dig deeper. We appreciate your help, feedback, time, thought, and overall generosity. And you’re a nice guy— what a great combination!"
"I view these tutors as great role models for teens. We've used quite a few and all are super-smart, polished, polite, and very pleasant. Our two teens have benefited enormously from their sessions with Ivy Tutors. They're more confident and their grades are extremely high."

"Marie was warm, professional, and covered the material quickly and efficiently, but was clear and concise in a way that my daughter connected with. This was the fourth tutor we've had in as many years, and we couldn't be more pleased."
"Before Ivy, I was working with another tutoring company in the city and was having a horrible experience with them. I really love that Ivy not only loves their clients, but also their tutors! Ivy was LEAPS and BOUNDS better than the other company I was with. I would highly recommend them to friends!"
"Justin has been a very positive influence on my moody, stubborn, high-spirited, intellectual thirteen-year-old!"
"Sarah was fantastic. She was on time, would stay late when they were in the middle of a section, and really helped Katie with grammar and difficult math problems. I would highly recommend her to anyone. "
