Tutoring for SAT Success

We teach to the test, using lessons developed by Ivy Bound to help improve math, reading, writing and grammar skills. Lessons are run topic-by-topic. Our tutors break the Math into 8 topical lessons then we move on to Verbal, which is broken into Reading, Language, Grammar and Writing. Ivy Bound tutors have helped Darien students on many levels achieve SAT success.
