In partnership with Applerouth Tutoring, a group of highly talented, trained, and motivated tutors dedicated to helping students get into their schools of choice.

Applerouth tutors are carefully selected and every tutor undergoes an intensive training program where they learn the methods crafted by Applerouth founder, Jed Applerouth. Tutors include doctors, professors, athletes, valedictorians, salutatorians, and National Merit Scholars. Because learning and teaching are two different skills, all tutors are required to have prior teaching experience. In addition to weekly assignments, students receive detailed mock test results that allow us to track improvement, and enable us to alter lesson plans based on class-wide results.
