Our Services

We evaluate your entire academic background to create a comprehensive plan tailored just for you.

Then, by pairing students with near-peer mentors who provide the hands-on guidance students

crave and the progress parents want to see, we motivate and prepare students to succeed while building confidence and self-esteem.


Academic Consulting

We handcraft each student's personalized educational plan and extracurricular activities. We map out all the classes, tests, internships, and college applications what will further an individual student's learning and help them achieve. Then, we provide the customized tutoring and counseling to help that student succeed.


Leadership Development + Confidence Building

Our students come away from their time with us with one thing in common: A step-by-step roadmap to achieving their dreams. Our students have started nonprofits and successful businesses. They've won national awards for their contributions to their communities. We continually see how our students are driven to do big things - and how colleges prioritize students with the drive not just to learn, but to implement and create something new. Most of all, they are transformed when they see how we can help them do what they thought was impossible - and become top candidates for their first-choice schools in the process.


Extracurricular Mentoring

My Ivy Education connects students with mentors who give them the tools to complete impressive projects. Our mentors have helped students start literary journals, conduct research with university professors, get published, start literary journals, and get placed in internships with college professors in their areas of interest - from anthropology to math.


Writing Mentorship for Success

We have seen firsthand how strong writing skills can open up doors for our students, from helping them rack up credentials for their résumés to giving them the necessary edge to craft that perfect Common App essay. Our consultants have won national and international writing awards. They've been accepted to writing programs with acceptance rates of <3% and had their pieces published in major literary journals. Way beyond just grammar help, through the intensive creative and expository writing mentorships we offer, we help our students gain access to these and similar programs, while building skills that will last them a lifetime in whichever fields they choose to go into.

Essay Coaching

We go way beyond just critiquing grammar. Our students rave about how we help them figure out what they want to say, exactly how they want to say it, and put it to paper in the most powerful ways possible.

Can you provide an example of this pacifism and wholesomeness after he returns to society?




Like I said above, you'll just want to combine this part of your essay with the above part. You can achieve this by joining not only the actual words, but also the themes, from each separate part.



I like that this phrase parallels the grammatical structure of the question you ask in the last paragraph, but replacing the passive voice with the active voice here will strengthen the argument. 


In addition to your personal analysis below, can you relate this to how trying to do everything led you to neglecting one of the most important things - your friendships?


Private School Applications

We help our students apply to the top private schools in the nation, from elementary to high school.

Stanford Online High School. The Harker School. Phillips Exeter Academy. Mirman School for the Gifted. The Davidson Academy. Horace Mann School. Milton Academy. Nueva School. Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School... and so many more.

See what our students are doing

Featuring one of our younger students,
because it's never too early to start.

After two My Ivy Education mentors helped one of our younger students, Dwight, develop a project on carbon emissions for the 3M Young Scientists Challenge, he filmed this 2-minute video - at only 10 years old. His top-tier private school wasn't challenging him enough in STEM, so his parents reached out to us for help.

Don't miss out on our offerings for students in grades 1-8, not just 9-12, including passion and extracurricular development, tutoring, and private school admissions support.

What Our Clients Say

• "Krystle is a rock star. No other way to put it. She has her finger on the pulse on all things 'application'. She relates well to kids and parents alike... her client success speaks for itself. She has accomplished so much in such a short period of time... starting this business while in college? Crazy! She walks the walk. The program works! She's the Bill Gates of college counselors. There is no one better!" --Leanna P., Parent

• "You are a miracle worker!! Thank you!" --Parent

• "All of us are really impressed with your achievements... and my daughter really admires you and sees you as someone who is setting a great example for young aspirants. Needless to say your thorough knowledge in this area is really commendable." --Parent

• "You have the magic to help unlock my child. Thank you sooo much." --Parent

• "Thank you Krystle! You are the best. We give your example to our kids." --Parent

• "I couldn't have done it without you!" --Student at Yale University

• "You're magic!" --Parent

• "Krystle is in the know!" --Parent

• "You went out of your way for us." --Parent

• "Thank you so much for all the information, solutions, and encouragement. I do believe my son is on the right track to the top colleges with your guidance. You have my full support! You have done such a great job with his progress and I can tell he enjoys your mentorship so much." --Parent

• "Your work goes far beyond these kids getting grades. You are shaping their futures. It is critical work." --Parent

• "I found the right person to drive my kid and I just pump the gas. We are in good hands." --Flora B., Parent

• "I just wanted to thank you for the really insightful feedback you gave me, it really gave me the boost I needed!" --Ryan B., Student

• "You made it perfect! Thank you. You are such a great helper. He couldn't be like that without you!" --Kate J., Parent

• "I must give you my sincere thanks for the wonderful revisions and insightful questions you've made. I love how you "show not tell," how you reveal your thinking process through wording, and how you help me convey "community" through details. Your help [is] definitely worth the price, and it actually convinced me of the importance of writing, which pushes me to read more and learn more. I believe a lot of kids have been inspired by you this year!" --Yirui G., Student

• "Ever since starting with you, I feel like my essay writing’s gotten a lot better, because before it was really general." --Student

• "Far beyond grammar, my son said the most helpful part of [having Krystle look over his essays for summer program applications] was the connections she was able to draw between what he was writing about." --Parent

• "Thank you for the help, you're truly the best." --Connie L., Student

* "Krystle is excellent. Her service is fast and reliable!" --Luyan L., Parent

• "I contacted Krystle and Donna because even though my children are relatively young, the thought of managing all the opportunities and the college admissions process is overwhelming.  I was encouraged by the fact that My Ivy Education specializes in Davidson Young Scholars [profoundly gifted students], because my DYS has followed a somewhat unconventional path in his education so far and I expect to need help navigating school systems and educational opportunities.  After speaking to Krystle in several consultations I am glad I found her early in the process.  Our meetings have been very productive, Krystle researched and presented many opportunities that I didn't have on my radar.  It has been wonderful to get an unbiased opinion of different schools and opportunities available in my city, and someone to help in prioritizing the things that are the best fit for my students and my family.  Her assistance on application essays and forms has also been invaluable.  I hope to continue to build a relationship with Krystle and Donna, as I expect to need their assistance more and more as my kids progress through middle and high school." --Abigail R., Parent

• "Thank you so much, Krystle! You got everything I was looking for. I really appreciate your support, and I'm so excited that I found someone that understands what we were looking for, so I'm really happy." --Meena N., Parent
