K-12 ACADEMIC SERVICES

Whether the need is algebra, Spanish, homework help, confidence-building, test-taking skills or special learning issues, our instructors will work with your student to provide:

  • An individual assessment of your student’s academic goals, learning styles, strengths and weaknesses through the Ivy Link Method;
  • A customized plan to set short-and long-term objectives and to develop innovative strategies to achieve academic success;
  • Constant feedback and evaluation; and
  • Access to exclusive mentoring through the extensive Ivy Link Network of Ivy League-educated graduates and students. 

 
Beyond their unmatched educational pedigrees and accomplishments, our instructors are sought after for their dedication to excellence and proven experience in teaching. We assist students in four major areas:

I. Homework, Organization & Test-Taking Help

Our instructors work to motivate and inspire students to complete school assignments with confidence and provide concrete techniques to organize their schedules and help them to remember deadlines. Students also learn exam-taking techniques to maximize their scores on classroom and standardized tests.

II. Special Learning Issues

For students with learning difficulties, such as dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and disorder of written expression, our learning specialists provide multiple programs and materials to fit their learning profiles. Key elements of instruction include direct teaching of a skill, modeling of a skill, repetition, review, varied instruction with different materials, redirection (if needed), frequent assessment and, most importantly, positive feedback.

Below are examples of areas where our learning specialists have assisted students:

  • Word Decoding
  • Reading Fluency and Accuracy
  • Reading Comprehension

IV. Academic Coaching

Ivy Link’s elite academic coaching service is aimed at transforming a merely good student into an excellent student. A typical Academic Coaching student is one who does well in school and would like to strive for a higher level of achievement — whether it is aiming to take college level linear algebra while still in high school, or learning advanced high school biology while still in middle school. We believe that just as great coaching is required for an athlete to become an Olympian, expert guidance and quality instruction by a dedicated academic coach are essential for academic success.
