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.

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 5,000 hours of free tutoring to the community.

VOLUNTEER TESTIMONIAL

Sam was an Apollo student who founded a program with his peers to tutor middle schoolers at the Dallas Environmental Science Academy (DESA) on pre-algebra concepts. Sam and his friends gave back over 600 hours of service to students at the DESA.

Tutoring at DESA has been an uplifting experience. Seeing the happiness in students’ eyes as they grasp something is unbelievably rewarding
(- and not to mention, incredibly fun).
