About Us

We have 38 years of combined experience in tutoring SAT/ACT/AP subjects and have taught 5,200+ students over the years. All of our tutors love education, and we’ve all come to enjoy how impactful we make every single one of our tutees’ lives in a short amount of time. We are career educators who love helping our students succeed because tutoring is more than just a job for us—it’s our passion!

What differentiates us from others?

All of our tutors have gone through the US education system and helped students reach the very top margins of everything—1550+ on the SAT, 35+ on the ACT, and 5’s on their AP tests. We have years of experience teaching AP Lit, AP Lang, AP Macro, AP Micro, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Statistics, and more. With schools focusing on STEM or STEAM, the current generation of students has gotten weaker in reading comprehension and writing essays. However, we can make up for this discrepancy, and our proven track record shows our students have become stronger readers and writers with better grades and test scores!

Moreover, because we focus on strategies, we equip students with the skills to solve concepts rather than explain how to figure out certain, specific questions. The skills they learn with us help them in academics even well after they finish their class. Beyond succeeding on their tests, our students gain critical-thinking skills that will set them up for success even in college, and we absolutely love hearing that tests are easy because our students just apply the strategies they learn from us! 

Another plus is our passion. Our tutors work hard with our students because we care and legitimately wish the best for everyone. Often, our tutors get thank you notes and small gifts from past students because when you work with us, you know we go that extra mile to see you succeed.
