Tungsten Prep helps students achieve their potential and find joy in learning.
We provide one-on-one and small group tutoring and coach students and their families through the insanity and the beauty of high school.
We help improve academic performance, prepare for standardized tests, refine study skills and improve time management (no more all-nighters!).
Our business is small and personal. No generic lesson plans, toll-free numbers or rotating cast of tutors. You have our undivided attention before, during and after our sessions. A good tutor is also a good listener, so we’re here to understand your needs and design lessons that fit your goals.
Doing your best in school starts here.
THE TUNGSTEN PREP DIFFERENCE
Affordability + Versatility + Ongoing Customer Support = The Tungsten Prep Difference
Tungsten Prep reflects our founder’s values as an economist and former diplomat. And a mom.
Rational and results-oriented. Compassionate and family-centric.
We ask ourselves everyday: “Would I want to buy our services?”…and “Could I afford to do so?”
3 CORE PRINCIPLES
We are guided by three core principles that make Tungsten Prep unique:
We maintain a lean business model, so we can pass that savings to you. We’ve eliminated the expense of a fixed office space. We hold classes at Hera Hub, a co-working space, and partner with a number of Washington, DC schools that allow us to tutor on-site.
Students rarely need support in only one subject. We offer an alternative to the parade of uncoordinated tutors, working with students across a range of subjects and reinforcing interdisciplinary skills such as time management and critical thinking.
Regular tutoring ends when the clock strikes the hour. But not at Tungsten Prep. We build collaborative partnerships with students and their parents. We encourage students to text us between sessions, and we are always available via phone and email for parent consultations. No charge. It’s just part of our commitment to your academic success.
“Tungsten Prep saved the day with their small group AP and SAT Subject test tutoring. The students were motivated to do this together, even at night, their only available time. The test results exceeded expectations! Thank you, Tungsten Prep.”
