A Century of Combined Experience

At Ivy Guru, we engage the the world’s best instructors in each ACT section to help students reach their university admissions goals. All of our tutors are Harvard Graduates with perfect scores on at least three ACT sections. In addition, each tutor must have at least five years of experience in independent ACT tutoring. Upon being hired, each tutor is mentored by our three senior ACT instructors, who are renowned NYC ACT tutors who have all written official test questions for the Official ACT, for two months before they are cleared to tutor any Ivy Guru students. We are proud to have the highest score improvement on the ACT than any other test prep company on the market.   

Success by the numbers.

What We Do

Our online learning removes the restrictions normally applied by geography, time limitations for students traveling to and from tutoring, the necessity for a tutor to visit their home, or even as in the current coronavirus climate, a concern as to gathering in classrooms or other populated spaces.

A Sea of Resources just for You

Senior ACT Instructor

Our first step is to pair you with a Senior ACT Instructor, who will review the results of the diagnostic test you will take from our extensive database. All our ACT practice tests are past official tests that cannot be found anywhere else online. Your Senior Instructor will then draft a custom plan that will most effectively target your weaknesses. You’ll then be connected with a ACT Instructor, who will work one-on-one with you through Zoom on official practice tests optimized to increase your score in the least amount of time possible. He or she will be in your corner to answer every question you have along the way, and push you to exceed your limits on this tricky exam. 

Proprietary Software

At IvyGuru, we have developed a patented software that streamlines the tutoring process, especially on the ACT Math Section. Our sleek interface allows our instructors to communicate complicated mathematical formulas and concepts in an intuitive manner so that it will feel just like an in-person lesson. The display senses the rigid strokes of the electronic pen, transforming them into fluid marks that cannot be differentiated from the text of an online textbook. No more jagged formulas, lag time, and unresponsive interfaces.       

Specialized Homework

After each private tutoring session, we will draw from our database of official ACT questions that correlates with the type of questions you missed in each lesson. This will ensure that you will not make the same mistake again on test day. The assignment will be due at least 24 hours before your next scheduled lesson, giving our instructors ample time to grade the assignment and review it before the start of your next lesson. Rest assured that after completing our comprehensive course, there will be no question that will surprise you on test day.
