Ambitious teens often find academic help is beyond their parents’ capabilities. And many teens know they can save time by listening to a tutor than having sessions with “Mom” or “Dad”.
Learning from a tutor and following a tutor’s guidance almost always leads to better grades and more class comfort. Ivy Bound’s “wheelhouse” is helping high school students excel. We do this for 1) academics, 2) semi-academic endeavors and 3) Test Prep.
For Academics, Ivy Bound tutors come to the school or come to the home for extra help. You can enlist Ivy Bound for after school, evenings, or weekends. It can be one-on-one, or with a friend. (With semi-private sessions, the families split the tutoring cost).
Ivy Bound tutors are especially effective helping you preview a daunting course. We do this prior to each semester, allowing you to then view the work a second time when the chapter materials are addressed in the course.
Ivy Bound’s AP Course Preview includes:
- AP English
- AP Biology
- AP Chemistry
- AP Computer Science
- AP Environmental Science
- AP European History
- AP Government
- AP U.S. History
- AP World History
- AP Calculus
- AP in Languages
Ivy Bound’s tutors will work with your school teacher if you wish, but can also keep the work and the meetings confidential.
For semi-Academics, Ivy Bound currently offers individual and group help in:
- Public Speaking
- Entrepreneurship 101
- Speedy Reading
Speedy Reading is especially good for student who have burgeoning assignments. We help you double (at least) your speed, while keeping your comprehension. These skills will help you excel in school AND have you finish your work earlier.
For students who are now taking college level courses, Ivy Bound shows you how to:
- Write Better Papers
- Absorb Vocabulary Well
- Take Notes Effectively
- Read Better
- Excel on Exams
For Test Prep, Ivy Bound’s SAT and ACT prep is unmatched. Our diligent students report average SAT improvements exceeding 160 points (on two SAT sections). For ACT the average improvement is 13.3 sub-points (3.3 composite points). Few schools “teach to the test” — we do. Ivy Bound teaches to the SAT and ACT unabashedly — for some students, these are the most important tests in their school lives. For many of your parents, the scholarships earned from your high SAT or ACT score make a huge financial difference.
