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 learning goals.

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

A COMMUNITY EFFORT


We believe all students deserve the best possible education to pursue their desired careers! Through facilitating small groups of volunteer-based tutoring, we efficiently and effectively help support students in lower-income communities. We also follow a “big picture” perspective, facilitating volunteer projects in the community by working with a variety of community service partners!
