Testimonials from parents and students

“Along with grand stories. Simplicity is the key. I believe to improve writing takes time because writing is a process. Help from professionals would be highly catalytic during the process. John’s biggest improvement from Ivy Labs’ writing program is his enlightenment on expressing ideas, which strengthened my confidence in his future study as his parent. Looking back at my own life as a 40+ year old grown-up, I must say it was through the appreciation of a few simple experiences in life or advice, that I gradually matured. Thanks very much!”

“In reading your micro blog about American secondary education, I celebrate the fact that I’ve found an educational advisor with whose educational philosophy I identify. I believe it is just important to find an educational advisor with a sound educational philosophy as with a solid subject expertise. Let’s get to know more about each other and build a lasting relationship.”

“In taking Ivy Labs’ writing course, I realized that one of the biggest lessons was Less is More. In writing, to make a successful argument, one doesn’t need fancy vocabulary along with grand stories. Simplicity is the key. I believe to improve writing takes time because writing is a process. Help from professionals would be highly catalytic during the process. John’s biggest improvement from Ivy Labs’ writing program is his enlightenment on expressing ideas, which strengthened my confidence in his future study as his parent.

“It is stunning how far Ivy Labs’ advisor would go to work through each step with my son last night on college application. Your professionalism and dedication to work exceeded my expectations, which will teach my son to develop a positive work ethic toward his own work.”

“Ivy Labs admissions counseling services are not just like any other services. It is tailor made to each and every individual, assessing the needs and augmenting the strengths. The services I received were unique - it combined expert guidance for both UK/US admissions. Beyond personal statements, the UK counseling strength lies in preparation for interview. Given the interview myth that surrounds Oxbridge interviews, ARCH gives one an idea of interviews, and more importantly guidelines for preparation. On the other hand, the US counseling services is of a completely different nature. Firstly, the speed and versatility provided by the US team is of extreme efficiency. Next, I have to applaud how the US counselors tailor each application to the applicant's nature. Another rewarding aspect is perhaps information that cannot be easily obtained by surfing the web - the strengths and atmosphere of each US college/university, the status quo and how an applicant would fit in.”

“Prior to starting college application, I was in complete darkness about the process. However, Ivy Labs brought me hope and guidance. I want to thank Ivy Labs for its professionalism and laudable service attitude, especially for Ms. YanYan’s dedication and Ms. Zhang’s instilling confidence in me. “It’s all about timing” is what I would describe my appreciated opportunity to have worked with Ivy Labs for college consultation.”

“Boutique in size and progressive in counseling, Ivy Labs is an ideal place for college counseling. From test prep, to documents preparation and to essays assistance, I learned not only about how to do well with college application, but also my decision to study in America. What I have learned at Ivy Labs will benefit me my life time.”

[Fan, Vassar ’16]

 

“With the help of Ivy Labs on college counseling, I immediately gain the peace of mind. Ivy Labs taught me to own the college application process so that I can see my goals more clearly. Studying for Gaokao is all about reviewing what’s learned in the past, working through the college application process is about preparing for the future. Hope friends next year will also make their dreams come true.”
