Why College Students?

College students know what it takes to excel in high school and get where they want to be. They have been through the college process recently and understand that, while it may be tough, the process can be managed and mastered.
Our tutors are experienced in breaking down complex subjects and teaching students effective learning and testing strategies that can be used for a lifetime. Above all, a tutor from your hometown will know exactly what it takes to excel in Mrs. Johnson's notoriously tough algebra class or Mr. Chen's project-based science program, a valuable edge that cannot be found anywhere else.

Remote Learning and COVID-19

The college process is already tough, and the obstacles brought about by remote learning and COVID-19 is only making it more difficult. We want to give students the resources and extra help they need to succeed at such a crucial time.
By working with young tutors from their hometown, students will have a mentor who can help them stay on top of their work, keep them motivated, and inspire them to succeed. Our tutors will also use the most up-to-date learning platforms (Zoom, Google Hangouts, etc.) to teach students in an effective and safe manner.
