We know that tutors do so much more than just help students with homework. The right person will prepare, support, and mentor students through their most challenging classes and academic decisions. In this capacity, our tutors improve a student’s confidence, strengthen their study and organizational skills, and increase their overall academic achievement. We take a holistic approach to education.
All of our tutors are hired after meeting a rigorous set of criteria: all of our tutors have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree and at least some teaching/tutoring experience under their belt before coming aboard. Tutors must go through a multi-step interview process, pass a thorough background check, and teach a successful mock lesson as part of the screening process. Tutorpedia’s directors spend time getting to know each tutor’s teaching style, personality, and strengths to ensure that our tutors are exceptionally qualified to teach.

“Tutorpedia has been an invaluable partner for us in our efforts to increase equity in academic support for our students. They’ve worked with us every step of the way, from conception through design to implementation, to create a program for student support that is true to our goals and to who we are as a school. The thoughtfulness of their staff is matched only by the professionalism and expertise of their tutors, about whom our students and parents consistently give highly positive feedback. The tutors care deeply about our students, their backgrounds, and learning styles, and work to give great support customized to both our kids’ needs and the unique nature of our academic programs.”
“From the moment David met our 9-year old daughter our experience has gone beyond our expectations. David has been working one-on-one with our daughter to build her confidence in math and has managed to find the perfect balance between both engaging and challenging her in their sessions. He is customizing the tutoring sessions to meet her needs but also strives to ensure that the experience positively reinforces her love of learning. We believe the foundation David is setting for our daughter is worth the investment and look forward to keeping him on to grow and stretch her capabilities in math.”
“I wanted to say how much I appreciate your efforts supporting A this week. Hearing you speak about him with truth to his challenges as well as compassion was a gift for me. I wanted to share a moment of celebration with you, hoping you see the difference your efforts made for one young person…I cannot express the depth of my gratitude that you held him with compassion and value while he struggled through these two weeks and this topic. I hope by telling you I have tears streaming down my face as I write this, I hope that shores up some energy, patience and compassion to keep doing what you do.”
