Blue Ivy Coaching
Our approach to each student is completely personalized. Coaches work with students individually and consistently, developing strategies with them for both testing and studying. However, our pedagogical model is larger than simply test tutoring, because we know each student learns and performs in unique ways. We strive for strategies that empower students to become problem solvers and lifelong learners.
All sessions are one-on-one to maximize individual attention, and are held online, at the student's home or at the Blue Ivy office.
Our coaches are trained to be highly specialized in standardized tests required for entrance to American universities, boarding schools, and graduate degrees. We are specialized in the following:
GRE and GMAT
ACT and SAT
SAT Subject Tests
SSAT and ISEE
TOEFL and IELTS
IB and AP Exams
We guide students through the complex college application process to select the best college for the student's personality, interests, and career goals. We then help to develop powerful, unique and intelligent essays, and apply expert insider strategies to increase the chance of admission to the student's dream school.
University Orientation is a 5-session program to advise students on what to study and where. We explore different fields of study, professional opportunities, apply a psychometric exam, and develop a final report with a clear application timeline.
We approach education through an innovative and dynamic lens so that we can help students find their passion, motivation, and self-discipline. This includes assisting younger students who are not yet applying to college to plan for their future, and it ensures that our students who go abroad for university do so with a vision of their own.
Our Subject Coaches are trained in IB, AP, and IGCSE examinations to help students with Math (all levels), Biology, Chemistry, English Language and Literature, Economics, and Social Sciences. We also teach French, Spanish, and English conversation.
