Our Team

The founder of Ivy Labs Ms. Sun has always abided by sincerity, loving-kindness, truthfulness and trustworthiness as her pursuit of life. Her personal charisma and educational philosophy has attracted a team of experts who have always dreamed and wanted to devote their life to education.

A majority of experts in our Ivy Labs team graduated from Ivy Leagues and other top universities such as Harvard, Yale and Columbia. Many of them have been formal admission officers (FAO) in world-class universities including all Ivy League Schools. Some others served in governmental education institutions in the US. Even some are investment bankers in Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan Chase, teachers in famous private high schools and university hockey coach. They have their own strengths, distinctive characteristics, while at the same time well versed in the essence of the United States, Britain education. They came from all over the world, bringing their advanced ideas, rich life experiences and cultural diversity into IvyLabs, which have strengthened the team to provide more convincing advices and more spiritual support and guidance to students and their parents.

The members in our research and development team have all received high quality university education. They have years of experience either working or teaching in secondary schools or universities in the US. At the same time, they are familiar with the Chinese style of education and culture. As a result, our team not only preserves the advanced international education concepts, but also makes them localized to become fully integrated. These teaching philosophies and approaches match very well with what Chinese students and parents need.

The organization has aimed at the upscale international education market. We have set our employment standard as preferring those who “value the ideology of Liberal Arts Education and love students and education”. We would adhere to the management model of “student-centered, allocating global education resources”. We have set up offices in the US, Hong Kong and mainland China. Our service network is deep rooted in the US, while it also covers the cities with its uniqueness and significant impact in the greater China area. We have implemented the mechanism where human resources such as consulting experts and teachers can be shared across different areas. This enables a flexible allocation of our teaching resources to better serve our clients. In the meantime, our team members can also choose their work location with more freedom, enjoying multi-cultural experience in the organization’s standardized management system.

On the international platform of IvyLabs, our team members can persist in their ideals of education, while complying with business ethics. They are given the opportunity to show their academic and professional strengths through rigorous academic research with quality control. They are also free to try out their innovative ideas in course design and teaching methods. The professional attitude and good cooperation among the team members have provided students with the most comprehensive tutoring from a different overseas perspective. Our core value is to mentor a strong heart, and give humanistic care and life guidance to students with our endless patience and love.
