“I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for all the work you’ve done with my daughter this year in AP Physics. She is dyslexic and has ADHD so there are more challenges for her than the average person. Thank you for all the support you’ve given her this year!!”

Testimonials from parents and students
Effective Zoom Sessions
Working one-on-one on zoom is very effective with Ivy Way Science. Most of the lesson is taught while Mrs. P. is screen sharing and writing on her screen. Then she prints up the notes and sends them to the student and parent for further studying.
Effective Study Sheets
“My son got a 100 on his in-class test and a 97 on the take-home test! Thank you for all your help!! He did prepare a lot but of course, you were a huge help!!”
Practice makes perfect
The secret to success, especially for AP Physics, is to practice. I have started writing some harder problems for you to work on! Answers are included. Find them here >
Ivy Way Response to COVID-19
Ivy Way is offering half-price tutoring sessions on Zoom as long as the schools are closed. Mrs. P. is extremely adept at conducting a productive one-on-one zoom session that keeps students engaged and motivated. First she types out an outline of the topic on the screen and encourages the student to take notes, and then both tutor and student write and draw on a shared screen while working out lots of practice problems.
It is tough to keep kids motivated with no Regents exams and no finals. I get it. I lowered my prices because there is very little incentive to hire a tutor right now, and yet I would like to help in any way possible to keep these young people moving ahead so they will be prepared for school whenever it re-opens. I also see the value in one-on-one tutoring as a break from the “teach yourself” model prevalent during the Pause. The kids benefit from the feedback and positive reinforcement which I provide. Text me to schedule a session for your child!
Ivy Way Helps Prepare for a January Regents Re-take
Life is complicated… especially for teens. A frustrated mother called me in August after her daughter had failed both the June and August Chemistry Regents exams. I worked with the student on Chemistry all fall, while she was moving ahead with her new classes in school. The result: “Good morning – wanted to let you know that I heard this morning of her passing! With a nice score of 77! She doesn’t even know yet as she is in the middle of a midterm. But I know she will be happy. Thanks again!”
Prepare for Major Tests
“Hello! Just wanted to share that my son got a 96 on the chem mid term. 🙂 Thanks so much!”
“Hi Mrs. Pavlovich. i’m texting you to say thank you for tutoring me as it has made a very positive impact on my learning as a whole.”
“The redox (Chemistry) test went very well yesterday. I used the tic tac toe method you showed me. It was very helpful.”
Catch up after an illness
Science courses move along rapidly and all material builds on previous understanding. Therefore, being out sick for any length of time can really set you back. Call me after an illness and I can quickly get your child back on track in Chemistry or Physics.
