Expert Understanding of the Exam

Ivy Global is renowned within the tutoring industry for producing the highest quality prep materials. Our books are routinely used by other tutoring companies and we apply our extensive knowledge of the exam to our instruction.

Experienced, 99th Percentile Instructors

Ivy Global has a highly selective recruiting process, offering only the best tutors. All candidates are required to have scored within the 99th percentile and have prior teaching experience. They are then required to demonstrate their teaching abilities in mock sessions and undergo rigorous training to ensure they’re familiar with the ins and outs of the exam and are able to tailor their instruction for each student.

Extensive and Adaptable Curriculum

We apply our expert knowledge to develop curricula that best prepare students — seamlessly interweaving test strategies and assignments that are adaptable to a student’s individual strengths and weaknesses.

Technological Advantage

Ivy Global has developed cutting edge programs to support our materials and instruction and ensure efficiency and maximization of results.

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!

Our online courses closely follow the syllabus of our classroom courses and are designed to replicate the in-class experience with live instructors and small class sizes. We use the latest video conferencing technology to create the best online classroom experience. As the popularity of our online classes grow, students have found it effective in improving their test scores with the added convenience of learning from home.
