Our Perspective

As a boutique, 1-1 tutoring and test prep company, our success is driven by:

  1. Our small but growing team of experienced, accomplished, passionate tutors from some of the best universities in the U.S.
  2. Our ability to listen and understand your situation, and to match you with a tutor that's highly likely to "fit" your subject and location needs and personal learning style
  3. Our unique perspective that intelligence is developed over time through practice and effort, not given at birth

We believe that you are not born with a set amount of intelligence which predisposes you to performing better or worse in school or on standardized tests.  Intelligence, talent, and academic skills are built over time through "deep" or "deliberate" practice, which is highly-focused, customized, fully engaged, feedback-driven preparation that builds skill over time.

Our tutors can play a key role in that process by helping you identify strengths and weaknesses, build a customized study plan, explain difficult concepts, and provide real-time, skill building feedback as you practice.
