ABOUT Apollo Tutors

OUR MISSION


Apollo Tutors is an emerging social enterprise offering tutoring for K-12 classes, SAT/ACT College Prep, and Undergraduate courses.

Our mission is to promote optimal learning for school, the workplace, and beyond.

PREMIER SERVICE


Our tutors are scholars from diverse backgrounds who have shown mastery in their fields of study, and have a passion for mentoring students.
We work with each student to identify areas of focus and set goals to progress your knowledge.

We strive to find the right fit of tutor who is proficient in the subject area and share similar learning styles with their students. Unlike the standard approach for tutoring, we use research based analytics to offer a custom tailored approach to tutoring.

BUY ONE TEACH ONE


We work closely with schools, non-profits, and think tanks to connect students with enriching academic experiences that promote social responsibility using evidence-based best practices.

We aim to spread the Light of Learning throughout the community. Every hour we tutor your child, we tutor a child in need for free. We call it Buy one, Teach one.

Since our founding we have given back over 5000 hours of free tutoring to the community.
