For high school students, the SAT is often the most intimidating aspect of completing their college resume. While a student might have good grades, his/her SAT scores might be holding them back. To help make the “big test” less stressful, Ivy Bound has been successfully tutoring students since 2001.
Tutoring for SAT Success
Ivy Bound offers both semi-private and private formats for Greenwich students who want to get ahead on the SAT. Semi-private means one student and a well-matched classmate enlist a tutor for one-on-two sessions with the parents splitting the cost. In-person or online, our instructors teach test taking and time management skills, along with new skills that are not typically introduced in school. Ivy Bound tutors give exercises that help students build their SAT Math, Reading, Grammar and Essay strengths. All our tutors have scored in the top 1% on the exam and their strategies teach to the test.
Ivy Bound tutors have helped Greenwich students on all levels achieve SAT success.
