Featured SAT Instructors

All of our sessions are taught by highly qualified instructors who are excellent experts on preparing students for the exam. We distinguish ourselves by the high quality of our instructors. Finding top-quality instructors is no easy task. We’ve hand-picked some of the best, including graduates of Ivy League institutions. Meet some of them here:

This program has been carefully designed for the students with a busy daytime schedule for internships or other activities during the summer. These students usually have higher expectation for their math performance. We teach students to learn the concepts, formulas, methods, steps, rules, techniques, and strategies, and assist them to improve their grades and performances on exams. We’re committed to helping your child catch up, keep up, and get ahead in math.

Every day, many students attend Ivy League Education Center to boost their math skills. We highly specialize in teaching math in a way that makes sense to each student to build solid mathematical understanding and lasting skills for a lifetime of success.

Our goal is to significantly increase your child’s math skills, understanding of math concepts, and overall school performance, while building confidence and forging a positive attitude toward the subject.5

  • Children don’t hate math.
  • They hate being confused and intimidated by math.
  • With understanding comes passion.
  • And with passion comes growth—a treasure is unlocked.

Demonstrate and Measure Results

We believe your child’s progress (and improved attitude) will be obvious to you, the parent. But we rely on third party proofs of progress: report cards and standardized assessments, provided by your child’s school.

6EDUCATION STRATEGY

We use a unique combination of mental, verbal, visual, tactile, and written techniques to help students learn math.

 

Mental

Students are taught how and when to use mental math techniques. This enables them to dispense with needless paper–and–pencil work and focus on the task at hand.

 

Verbal

Language is used as an integral part of the program. Students are taught the meaning of root words in the mathematics context. Students are also taught how to explain their thought process and reasoning verbally.

 

Visual

Meaningful pictures, charts, and tables are used to explain ideas and concepts. Many of the problems in the workbooks are “picture–based,” providing students with insights into problems that transcend the written words.

 

Tactile

When appropriate, manipulatives are used to introduce, explain, and/or reinforce concepts and skills. The transfer of knowledge from manipulatives to other aspects of learning is carefully monitored.

 

Written

Written practice with computation (“drill”) is a necessary component of mathematics education. We provide for abundant practice. In addition, our workbooks and other printed material provide a framework for the orderly development of mathematical thought and skills.

Attitude and Self-Esteem

Many students come through our doors with an “I’m no good at math…I hate math” attitude. Kids don’t really “hate math.” What they hate is being frustrated, embarrassed and confused by math.

 

Being successful is the best way to overcome these problems. We provide for success by finding the right starting point (through diagnostic testing) and building confidence and self–esteem through successful encounter and interaction with carefully selected materials.

In Addition

Our approaches also provide enrichment at all levels of the curriculum; advanced work, including topics not usually introduced in the classroom, for students who are ready; and intensive remediation, as needed.

 

CONTENT STANDARDS

Our math enrichment program covers the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM), the Maryland State Math Standards, and MCPS (Montgomery County Public Schools) Math Standards.
