Admissions Guidance Contact for Private Tutoring and College Guidance

Although the pool of qualified students only seems to grow, the number of great schools remains finite. As the pressures increase, we provide relief. At ibidPREP, we have years of experience in helping students identify schools that suit them and then gain entrance to them. We address families' concerns and plan courses of action for students to attain their top choices. 

Middle & High School

Over the past decade, there has been a surge of enrollment in New York City public schools, even as demand for the elite private schools has remained constant. ibidPREP’s extensive experience deciphering the byzantine application processes of these schools and our familiarity with the idiosyncrasies of private schools make us ideal guides and partners in the application process. Let us counsel you on your choices and strategy.


Applying to college can be very difficult for students and their families. In addition to being a complex technical process, applying to college can also be a somewhat complex emotional process. In our college guidance program, we consult directly with parents and students every step of the way to achieve goals and mitigate anxieties. ibidPREP customizes school lists and creates application checklists that include all the necessary websites, forms, applications, supplements, short answers and essays required. We also schedule testing, tours and informational meetings, make calls, and maintain the peace among all parties throughout.

Over and above the technical and emotional support we provide, perhaps our greatest contribution to the college application process is the work we do with students on their essays. As a published journalist (e.g., Art in America, Esquire, Time Out New York), Stuart knows how to help students find their voice. He helps shape their writing by constantly participating in the editing of however many drafts are necessary to achieve a truly personal statement. Throughout the revision process, he shows students how to strip away many of the platitudes and vapid mannerisms their writing has accrued through high school. Ultimately, students learn how to express themselves in a real and gripping manner that is unique to them.
