Our Tutor Heroes come from the best PhD programs in the country.
They know what it takes to succeed as undergraduates within the US education system. They’ve been there and done that, achieving academic excellence all their lives. Now they’re bringing their wisdom, savvy, expertise and study-smarts to you, so you can get the edge you need to perform at your best on problem sets, papers, exams and standardized tests—because sometimes a B+ just isn’t good enough.
Don’t bang your head against the wall because your text book stinks or your professor is too busy doing research to be an effective teacher for you. Tutor Hero isn’t about blowing off students to do ‘research’, it’s about tutors dedicated to teaching you what you need to know to succeed inside the classroom so you can have a life (and even more success) outside the classroom.
Your Tutor Hero was carefully selected from among a pool of talented post-docs and PhD candidates, was vetted by Tutor Hero staff, interviewed and trained. Our Tutor Heroes’ accomplishments and credentials include:
- Degrees from the nation's top ranked PhD programs (UC-Berkeley & Stanford)
- University-wide teaching awards
- Research with Nobel Prize-winning faculty
- Prestigious national fellowships, grants and scholarships
- Publications in the most respected peer-reviewed academic journals
- Experience grading papers, constructing problem-sets and creating exam questions
Nobody is better qualified to help you learn the material than a Tutor Hero, because they have seen your confusions and mistakes before, can explain the same topic in different ways, and can tailor their explanations just for you.
