The Ivy Advisor
Many students these days are both well-rounded and academic achievers with dreams of getting admission into a good college. You just have to visit a Lynbrook or a Monta Vista high school to observe this phenomenon first hand. These students crave a good college to hone their skills and fuel the trajectory of their careers.
Other students still research around, looking for the right guidance to help them advance to their goals. Both breeds of students need a common guiding force to help them selectively and precisely carve out their future. That's where Dr. Jiang's Ivy Advisor comes in. By mentoring students and helping them follow a well-researched, unique path based on the student's academic passions, success at the Ivy Advisor seems almost unavoidable.

Karen, U Chicago
"Hi Dr. Jiang, Just wanted to say THANK YOU for everything! I found out I was accepted early to U Chicago earlier today and I could not thank you enough for all the help and guidance you've given me through this journey. Thank you for supporting me every step of the way! This is honestly such a dream come true, and I am so thankful and blessed for all your support."
"Dear Dr. Jiang, I recently took the October SAT and scored a 1580, which I was really surprised about because I was just a sophomore. I think your summer class for the Advanced English reader really helped me build my vocabulary and helped me with the writing section! Thank you so much for the fun class, and I hope to see you again in the future!"
"Hello Professor Jiang, Many years ago, I took your SAT class. I am writing this email to thank you for the great class I took many years ago. I am entering my final year at the University of Chicago and preparing for the GMAT exam. After all these years, I am using your SAT Handbook to study! The concepts in these books are definitely applicable to the GMAT and are presented in a clear and concise manner. I have never considered myself a good writer. However, the grammar you taught me stuck with me throughout college. My papers are much stronger because of the rules you taught me! I am also able to effectively edit the writing of my peers as well! Thank you, again, for the great SAT class. Looking back on my college papers and looking forward to the GMAT, I realize how impactful your class has been beyond the SAT."
