College Admissions Tutoring in NYC

We believe that the key to a successful college admissions process is starting early by exploring your passions and finding meaningful activities that set you apart from the crowd. Every teen’s unique interests, their strengths and challenges, and how they learn are all important to make clear to admissions officers why that student is an excellent candidate for their collegiate community. And while it can be stressful if embarked on too late, college admissions is an important experience for your child to recognize all of their achievements and successes from kindergarten through senior year.

IVY is proud to have many college admissions experts ready to help you and your child submit everything needed before application deadlines, and tutors in a wide array of subjects to assist with the academic and test-prep components of their applications. With college admissions becoming more competitive every year, the right team will help to guide you through course selection; exam preparation (APs, PSAT, SAT/ACT); passion exploration; extra-curricular activities selection; internships and summer opportunities; college list creation; and the college application, including the main college essay and the application supplement questions.
