Even the best students struggle with their standardized tests. With college admissions more competitive than ever before, get the IVY EXPERIENCE to help your student get ready for the most important tests of their academic career.

Reviews & Endorsements

“Preparing for college standard admission tests and applications should not be a one size fits all program. Ivy Experience provided a flexible approach in preparing my daughter for all the myriad of tasks and points to be considered and addressed. Ivy Experience tailored their services to what my daughter needed and how she responded best.”

– Kathy T.

Reviews & Endorsements

“The Ivy Experience was a tremendous asset to my daughter during her application to college. Their advice on how to prepare a winning essay, and how to deal with decisions to be made about early registration and a host of other topics were invaluable during this process. My daughter attended a large public school where counseling for the best way to approach the top schools was virtually non-existent. I am pleased to report success in that my daughter is now part of the Class of 2017 of a prestigious Ivy League university. Our family owes this in large part to the excellent advice we received from the Ivy Experience.”

Reviews & Endorsements

“I could not have done it without my Ivy tutor!” This has been my daughter’s response to anyone who congratulated her on being accepted to her first choice university. The tutors at Ivy Experience were not only knowledgeable in all areas of test prep and essay writing, they were very compassionate when it came to understanding the stress and emotions my daughter was experiencing with the entire college process.”

– Karen M.

Reviews & Endorsements

“While the improvement in our daughter’s scores after working with Ivy Experience was dramatic, the far greater impact was on her self confidence. She went from fearing and dreading the testing and application process to having a sense of pride and ownership. There is no magic pill and she worked hard to make her gains but without the tutor’s voice of calm, sense of reason and startling breadth of experience and knowledge, I don’t think she would have accomplished as much regardless of the time she put in. We are already planning on hiring an Ivy Experience tutor for our son next year.”

– Andrew E.
