Our Mission

We have put together a team of the best and brightest tutors, all with one mission...to provide effective tutoring that delivers real and lasting results for our students. We know that today’s students face an increasingly competitive world, and without proper reinforcement, many students may get left behind. Even the most advanced students are finding it more and more difficult to stay above the competition and get into their dream colleges. Luckily, we also know that success in school is very achievable. With the right guidance and consistent mentoring, we work to provide our students the boost they need to succeed. The goal to provide real and lasting results, extends beyond merely helping students complete their homework or study for an exam. Rather, it involves a comprehensive process of understanding our students’ unique strengths and weaknesses, and working consistently to improve everything from their study habits to their organizational skills, as well as their self-confidence.

 

We have seen many students transform from being disinterested in their studies to being star students, and going on to pursue higher education after high school. This is why we provide our service - we find it immensely fulfilling and purposeful knowing that we are helping students unleash their limitless potential.

Our Story

Tutor Troops began in 2014, based on the goal to provide an effective tutoring service to the many students in the D.C. Metropolitan Area. We understand that students often feel overwhelmed by the increasing pressure to earn high grades and get accepted to the colleges they wish to attend. We aimed to create a one-stop-shop, where students with any range of abilities and proficiency levels could come and know that their academic success would be ensured. We began by gathering together bright and motivated college graduates who shared our vision in wanting to help students succeed. We then developed our comprehensive vetting, hiring, and training system to ensure that every Tutor Troopers met our high standards.


We also compiled worksheets and curricula based on State-approved standards, and made sure our tutors were thoroughly versed in the material, in accordance with the State standards. Our tutoring sessions have always been several cuts above the rest - by targeting a student’s specific strengths and weaknesses, and regularly drilling concepts by completing worksheets and interactive learning, we delivered results, every time. Our students were thrilled! Not only did they completely understand concepts that had only recently been completely foreign to them, their confidence shot up immeasurably as well! By providing effective tutoring and consistently delivering results to thousands of students, we soon grew as a company. We are thankful to be here today serving our community, and continually seek to improve ourselves through innovation.
