Flagship Tutors

Testimonial

Last spring semester I learned from the teachers' midterm reports that my son was doing poorly in Physics and was in danger of failing Advanced Math... The results speak for themselves: [my son] had the highest grade in his class on the math final and got an A on his physics final.

Our Tutors

The supply of tutors in the world is overwhelming: we receive thousands of applications per year. Evaluating the qualifications of a potential tutor requires work and time: we interview about 15% of our applicants, getting to know each individual’s background, skills, and personality. To find someone truly great is difficult: we only bring on about 20% of the people we interview. Our acceptance rate ends up being about half that of Harvard University.

Below you’ll see a sample of our tutors and their outstanding educational qualifications. However, what you can’t see on a website is what’s most important: these are wonderful people with a rare talent for bringing the best out of students. We’re excited for you to see that element in person.
