Intensive Course

30 Hours

Our two-week summer course provides intensive and thorough coverage of both substantive and strategic SSAT preparation. An overview of strategies will be included for all four sections of the exam (Verbal, Reading, Math, and the Writing Sample), as well as structured vocabulary building, a thorough math concepts review, and an introduction to structured essay-writing.

The format and substance of the review will be shaped by the skill level of the students. Students will begin by working both collaboratively and individually as they apply new strategies. As the course progresses, there will be ample opportunities to practice in realistic test conditions.Daily homework assignments are given, with flexible options provided to students with less free time. Each class is taught by an experienced instructor with the help of a teaching assistant.

Regular Course

24 Hours

There are two formats to the eight-week course: (a) 3-hour classes every Saturday; and (b) 2-hour classes twice weekly. The course seeks to provide a general overview of both test content and test-taking strategies for the SSAT, with additional opportunities for in-class practice as the course progresses. In order to maximize the use of class time, students are given homework assignments to reinforce the material covered. At the end of the course, each student will receive a full progress report and a roadmap to structure their further study.

Crash Course

18 Hours

The Crash Course provides a condensed overview of test content and strategy. The class will review the math, reading, verbal, and essay-writing concepts tested by the SSAT. Students will also be introduced to the most effective test-taking methods. Homework assignments are given to reinforce the material covered. Guided by the instructor, students will discuss and develop longer-term study schedules to structure their test preparation after the end of the course.

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.

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.
