Ivy Bound helps Middle School students who need remedial help.
Students needing remedial help can have an Ivy Bound tutor come to the school for extra help.
Students who are poised to learn well, but need Study Skills can participate in a Study Skills class. Ivy Bound proudly offers these to help students with new academic responsibilities.
We show them how to:
- Write Better Papers
- Absorb Vocabulary Well
- Take Notes Effectively
- Read Better
- Excel on Tests
For students wanting to get ahead:
Students wishing to excel can have an Ivy Bound tutor introduce subjects that the student would like to take on. Practical Math, Speedy Reading, Chinese, Computer programming, Astronomy, Film-making, Chess, Digital Art, Geology, and advanced Robotics are all subjects we relish teaching.
For some students “Entrepreneurship 101” is a great weekend class. We help students, in pairs, turn an idea into an operating business. Along the way we teach some legalities, financial practicalities and give over low-level business ethics.
SSAT Test Prep
Students in grades 3-11 who are applying to a prep school are required to take the Secondary School Admission Test. The SSAT tests Math, Verbal, Reading Comprehension and Writing skills by grade level.
ISEE Test Prep
Students in grades 5-12 also have the option to take the Independent Schools Entrance Exam when applying to most prep schools. The ISEE tests Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension and Mathematics Achievement skills by grade level.
Our Study Skills course helps students in grades 5-8 improve their performance on homework and tests! We will work with your textbooks to prepare you for the most difficult classes in your schedule. The course covers comprehension, memorization, reading speed and more.
Read faster and with better comprehension! Our Speedy Reading Course helps young students at least double their reading skills so they can complete school assignments more efficiently. Students can expect to finish a short book in the final 3-hour session of this class.
Please contact Ivy Bound if we can help you this year.
