As a test preparation facility, Ivy Inspiration offers a variety of test preparation courses with goals in mind to aspire for higher learning, to succeed in school, and to be a confident, independent student.

ISEE / SSAT

The ISEE and SSAT are admission exams designed for students who wish to apply to private schools or boarding schools. Ivy Inspiration prides itself on preparing students to achieve competitive scores for entrance into the most prestigious private schools and boarding schools in the nation. With years of experience, Ivy Inspiration has the know-how, strategies, and curriculum to ace the ISEE and SSAT.


ISEE


The ISEE is divided into three levels: Lower-level, Middle-level, and Upper-level. Students will take one of the three tests depending on their grade. For more information about the ISEE, please check out their website at: https://www.erblearn.org/services/isee-overview


SSAT


Some private schools and boarding schools prefer the SSAT exam for admission. Unlike the ISEE, there are two levels for the SSAT exam. To learn more about the SSAT, please check their website at: https://ssat.org/about-ssat/about-the-ssat

PSAT

The PSAT is a standardized test that provides first-hand practice for the SAT, and gives students a chance to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship. Ivy Inspiration recommends each student to take the PSAT for various reasons. Of course, it's great practice for the SAT. Prepping with one of our private tutors will not only help the student earn a higher PSAT score; it'll also give them practice needed to score higher on other standardized tests like the SAT or ACT. The PSAT is also a great way to received feedback on student's strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study. With the test results, we can help them focus on those areas they can most benefit from additional study or practice. Ivy Inspiration designs prep plans around each student's learning style.

SAT / ACT

SAT


The SAT is an admissions test designed to evaluate reading, math reasoning, and writing/language skills.

Our instructors at Ivy Inspiration realize that each student has his or her own learning style, different strengths and weaknesses, and individual schedules.

ACT


Neither the SAT or the ACT exam is superior to one another. Unless colleges and universities have a preference in their admission criteria, the decision to take which exam is up to the students. There is a slight difference in the structure of the two exams, so students can take practice exams for both the SAT and ACT to decide which format they are better suited for. Some students opt to take both the SAT and ACT for colleges and universities that accept either tests. Whether the students choose to take the SAT, ACT, or both exams, Ivy Inspiration has the tools and strategies that is right for you.

SAT II / AP

SAT II


Ivy Inspiration offers a wide range of subject test courses due to the nature of its various subject fields. Colleges use SAT II scores to assess student's skills in particular subject fields, such as English, history, math, science, and foreign languages. While the SAT I primarily measures problem-solving and quantitative skills, the SAT II measures topic-related knowledge. SAT II is also used for course placement. It is not required by the majority of colleges and universities, but the most competitive schools require SAT II score submission in order to measure student's work capabilities at a college-level. Ivy Inspiration offers courses to aid students in all SAT II subject areas that will make their application shine. With dedication to our intense program, a perfect score is not impossible, but very attainable. 


AP


Advanced Placement Tests cover a wide range of subjects. It gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their academic proficiency and also earn college credit. High AP scores are rewarded with class exemptions and advanced course placement in college, thus enabling individuals to stand out in the admission process. More than 90 percent of four-year colleges in the United States give students credit on the basis of AP Exam scores. By entering college with AP credits, you'll have the time to move into upper level courses, pursue a double-major, or study abroad. Whether you need long-term assistance keeping pace with the content and workload of an AP course, or preparing yourself to digest AP course materials in advance, Ivy Inspiration is ready to make a difference for your child.
