Tutoring FAQ

Who are your SAT/ACT tutors?

We hand-pick tutors who combine high-academic achievement with a passion for teaching. Many of our instructors are graduates of top US colleges and experts in teaching standardized tests. Meet some of our SAT/ACT instructors and tutors here.


Do your tutors help with every section of the SAT/ACT?

We have some tutors on staff who can cover all three sections of the SAT (Critical Reading, Math, Writing) and some who specialize in either the verbal or math. As well, we have tutors on staff that cover all four sections of the ACT (English, Math, Reading, Science). We will work with you to find a tutor who will be the best fit for your needs. During a tutoring session, you can choose to cover all three SAT sections/all four ACT sections or just focus on the areas that you need particular help with.


How long are your tutoring sessions?

Our SAT/ACT tutoring sessions are typically 2 hours in length. Of course, we are flexible and we can extend the tutoring session if requested.


What is covered in a typical 2-hour tutoring session?

Every tutoring session is different. We completely customize our sessions to the needs of the student. A typical tutoring session might include an overview of the SAT/ACT, building unfamiliar concepts, working through practice problems, or reinforcing tips and strategies.


How much tutoring do I need?

For students without prior SAT/ACT preparation, we recommend the 28-hour tutoring program. However, you may build a custom program that fits your needs and budget. The factors that you should consider when determining how much tutoring you need are your score improvement goal, the amount of time before your SAT/ACT test date, and your budget. For our 28 hour program, we see on average a 200 point improvement in the student and it takes approximately 2.5 months to complete if scheduled on a weekly basis.


How much homework do you assign?

At Ivy Global, we understand students are busy with school work and extra-curricular activities. During the session, the tutor will discuss with the student how many hours they can devote to SAT/ACT preparation and will assign an appropriate level of homework for the student. For weekly sessions, a typical level of homework may be 2-4 hours per week.


When can I arrange SAT/ACT tutoring?

SAT/ACT tutoring can be arranged on both weekdays and weekends. The dates and times (Monday-Sunday: 10am-9pm) are very flexible and depends on the availability of our tutors. Most students arrange tutoring on a weekly basis, but we can also accommodate less frequent tutoring as well as intensive preparation.


How do I sign-up for tutoring?

Please email us at, or call us at 416-225-4242 (Toronto) or 1-800-470-2995 (Canada or US).

What is your cancellation policy?

For any tutoring session that is cancelled at least 24 hours beforehand, no cancellation fee will be incurred. For sessions cancelled within 24 hours, a fee equivalent to 1 hour of tutoring will be charged. For refunds involving any of our services, a 5% administration fee will be applied.

What if I am not happy with my tutor?

At Ivy Global, we only hire the best. We are confident that you will find each of our tutors engaging and effective as instructors. If for whatever reason you are not satisfied with your tutor, please contact us immediately and we will do our best to make any necessary adjustments.

Do you offer tutoring for other subjects?

Many of our tutors have experience and expertise in a wide variety of subjects. We offer private tutoring services for students in Grades 5-12 to supplement school work and for test preparation.
