About Our Team

Dr. Liming Liu is the founder and the key person of the LYTS Ivy Associates, LLC. He has successfully helped his two daughters getting into Harvard University for their undergraduate study. As informed by letters from the president of the prestigious Intel Science Talent Search Commettee, Dr. Liming Liu was named by two Semifinalists in the Intel Science Talent Search in recent years as “the one person who has been most influential in the development of my scientific career.”

Dr. Liming Liu received his Bachelor degree from Sun Yat-sen University in China in 1982, and his Ph.D. from University of California at Berkeley in 1989. He has worked as a scientist/senior scientist in American pharmaceutical companies and academic institutes in America for the past 20 years. Dr. Liming Liu is also a New York State certified teacher for Biology and Chemistry. In addition, Dr. Liming Liu is an adjunct Faculty at the York College in New York City.

In addition to writing scientific research papers published in scientific journals, Dr. Liming Liu  also published several books in Chinese during 1990s in the fields of computers, automobiles and fossil fuel energy, with each book covering the history of one industrial field, from the discovery, the development of the science and technology, to the commercialization of products as well as competitions related to the commercialization. This kind of writing requires a lot of reading in order to get familiar with different fields of science and industry.

While reading many different books, Dr. Liming Liu understood that helping children’s education was one of the most important responsibilities a parent should have, and it could also be the most rewarding thing a parent could do in his or her life. Thus, He put his major focus on growing up together with his two children who at that time had just entered primary school and were lag behind initially in English language. Dr. Liming Liu was happy to find out later that much knowledge he learned through his massive reading and writing could be used to help his children’s education, college preparation, application and admissions.

With both of his children in Harvard University as undergraduate students, and with the success of this experience, Dr. Liu has found joy teaching children and he will be more than happy to assist parents in their children’s college preparations, applications and admissions. Therefore, Dr. Liu founded the LYTS Ivy Associates, LLC and assembled a high quality team with the aim to help other students and parents maximize their educational potentials.
