Experienced Leadership

While Ivy Prep’s elite team of tutors are what truly drive the success of our students, that team is led by our immensely experienced and talented executive suite. Ivy Prep is a boutique company, and we have a tight knit team that works in perfect harmony with one vision: help our students succeed. While we have dozens of tutors and many other crucial team members helping out in supporting roles, our front office is run by four individuals who passionately focus on the three core aspects of Ivy Prep: Curriculum Development, Talent Acquisition, and Operations.

Alex Caldwell

Founder and Director

Alex Caldwell founded Ivy Prep in 2013 with one goal in mind: help students develop their academic abilities from the foundation up. Originally hired as a writing tutor in 2006, Alex now has over 14 years of experience in education across a breadth of subjects. While his specialty may still be teaching writing at all levels, he is also exceptionally skilled at math, has a passion for history, and is a master ACT and SAT tutor. He holds a dual Bachelor of Economics and Government from Claremont McKenna College, ranked the #6 best college in the nation as of 2021.

Alex founded Ivy Prep because after seven years as a tutor, it was clear that education was not just a job for him but a passion and a calling. Today, there isn’t a day that goes by when Alex doesn’t devotedly spend time checking in on Ivy Prep’s students and its team members. Ivy Prep isn’t just Alex’s job, it is his purpose, and that dedication will be evident in the personalized and tailored attention that you receive from him and the entire Ivy Prep team. In his spare time, Alex is an avid sailor, surfer, and spearfisherman.

Sundar Patel

Operations Manager

Sundar is an invaluable member of the Ivy Prep team who manages and oversees all daily operations at the company. He cares deeply about each of our students and his attention to detail helps ensure that each and every one of their classes and sessions occur seamlessly every single day. A math whiz, Sundar holds a Bachelor of Mathematics from NYU. When he’s not passionately caring for Ivy Prep’s students, he enjoys traveling and playing chess.

Devin Huntsman

Chief Curriculum Developer

Devin works very closely with our Director, Alex Caldwell, and each of our subject-specific specialists on developing all of the course curriculum for Ivy Prep. Whether it is a 9-week long GMAT class or a single-day SAT bootcamp, Devin is instrumental in the development of all of our programs. Devin holds a Bachelor of Engineering from the University of Washington, and in his free time he enjoys building motorcycles.

Susan Lee

Head of Talent Acquisition

Susan has a gift for finding the absolute best educators in the world. Our talented tutors are what deliver our students’ success, and Susan is the driving force behind finding them. It takes a patient and keen eye to sift through hundreds of applicants, conduct dozens of interviews, and finally land on the perfect candidate for our team. Susan does it with ease and we are very lucky to have her. She holds a Bachelor of English from Columbia, and she loves her two dogs more than anything in the world.

Our Tutors

Our tutors are the reasons that our students find success time after time. We have too many to list each of them here, but they all have a few things in common. Every Ivy Prep tutor has at least three years of experience teaching or tutoring their speciality and they each hold a Bachelor’s Degree or higher. Those are the minimum requirements. Many of our tutors have over 10 years of experience and several have either Masters or Doctorate degrees. Our GMAT tutors all scored in the 99th percentile. On top of that, every single one of them has a natural talent for putting students at ease and effectively explaining their material. At Ivy Prep we hire only the absolute best tutors, and as a student you will understand why.
