Clio graduated cum laude from Yale University with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Theater Studies. In her junior year, she was selected as an O’Neill Playwriting Fellow and worked at the Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School teaching writing and playwriting to freshmen students.
Clio scored a 2370 on the SAT, a 760 on the U.S History Subject Test, and an 800 on the Literature subject test. She is experienced teaching Reading, Writing, and standardized test-taking skills. She enjoys getting to know her students personally in order to ensure her teaching sessions remain both fun and informative, and focuses on helping her students to develop an independent interest in the material they are working on.
Through Ivy Global's programs, students have improved an average of 200 points on their SAT scores. Generally, we expect our students to improve anywhere between 100 – 400 points. We use real SAT/ACT practice tests to measure our students so that results are not artificially inflated and reflect real improvement.
Ivy Global differentiates itself from other companies in that our instructors have scored in the 99th percentile on the SAT/ACT. Additionally, we only select teachers with strong academic backgrounds or credentials from top universities. Ivy Global is committed to offering a uniquely-tailored program. Our small class sizes allow instructors to teach the classes to meet each student’s unique needs.

There are several factors that distinguish Ivy Global from other test prep agencies:
Teacher quality: Our instructors are knowledgeable, experienced, and committed to helping students maximize their test scores.
Individualized approach: Our small classes are customized according to the needs of every student. At too many prep agencies, instructors rely on scripted material. Our instructors engage directly with students, answering questions and responding to concerns as they arise. Our prep programs offer flexible homework assignments to suit students with varying schedules.
Close teacher-student rapport: Because our student-teacher ratio is capped at 10:1, our instructors gain a deep understanding of the strengths, weaknesses, and personality of each student. This understanding allows the instructor to shape the class according to the needs of students.
Selective prep material: The prep books and practice tests employed in our classes are chosen after a rigorous evaluative process. Unlike many other test prep agencies, which utilize material from only one source, we use the best materials from a variety of the most effective sources.
Real practice tests: Many other test prep agencies administer unrealistic practice tests that have not been written or approved by the actual test-makers. Our courses rely on real practice tests from the test-makers themselves.
Students can arrange to drop in and observe one session of a course running in their location, as long as this is authorized by our office. Please call to schedule.
A typical class consists of a combination of lecture-based explanation, individual practice sections, and collaborative discussion. Our small classes make it possible for teachers to respond directly to student concerns about particular questions or concepts. Our instructors maintain a relaxed atmosphere. A typical class ends with our famous vocabulary game, fueled by friendly competition and laughter!
