Ivy Bound Test Prep wants to send students away. To top-ranked schools, that is. During prep sessions, tutors help students identify and conquer academic issues, prepare for the rigors of upper education, and raise SAT and entrance-exam scores before they apply to Hunter high schools and top universities. By the end of the program, students often leave with exam scores boosted by up to 600 points and a better understanding of what major universities look for from an applicant. And if anyone knows what top-tier high schools and universities look for, it’s Ivy Bound's tutors; all of its instructors are licensed high-school teachers or college professors, with some hailing from Ivy League universities such as Harvard and Yale.

When she’s not teaching creative writing or crafting award-winning songs, Kate Callahan helps high school seniors channel their own creativity into college essays. A 12-year artist-in-residence in West Hartford public schools, Kate walks students through essay-writing step-by-step, from brainstorming to revision. Along the way, she shows pupils how to incorporate creative elements into their pieces, such as dialogue or building suspense. For students who already have an essay ready, Kate happily makes content or grammar suggestions during her one-on-one Skype or in-person sessions. Along with seniors, she extends her services to juniors, who can develop and refine their pieces a full year ahead of the application grind in senior year.
Artist Deenie Pacik, armed with nearly two decades of crafting fused-glass artwork and teaching at schools such as Franklin Pierce University, imparts her expertise during a variety of classes. Working out of Deenie's fully equipped home studio, small groups of students learn to fuse dichroic glass and powder into everything from shiny pendants to new work boots for Cinderella's cousin. Projects transform into translucent objets d?art in the glass kiln, which, as Deenie tells the Warwick Beacon, heats glass at three times the temperature used to bake a pizza, or eight billion times the heat used to glaze an ice sculpture.
