What’s Next?

Contact us to discuss how we can help you. It’s best if we can speak one-on-one by phone to learn how our team can best help your student.

Call our office at 202-810-2003.

Send an email to or use the contact box below to explain your needs and leave a contact number. We promise to get back to you within one business day. If you’re busy, we can ascertain your needs via an email exchange.


Our Parent Outreach Coordinator, Sheena Martin, will answer any questions and, based on your student’s individual needs, match him or her with a Tungsten Prep tutor.

Your tutor will email you within 24 hours of your match to arrange the first meeting, usually within the week.

At the first session, your tutor will discuss your goals and get to work improving an individual student’s skills.  Tutoring can continue (usually on a weekly basis) for as long as a student needs it.  You will receive a written readout after each session.

Where Do We Tutor?

At a location that works for you.


Our tutor will come to your home. We only ask that you provide a quiet, public place in your home for tutoring and that a parent or other adult be present. Tutors are unable to tutor in students’ bedrooms or behind closed doors. In-home tutoring is available to families residing in Washington, DC, Maryland, and northern Virginia communities near the District of Columbia. If you would like in-home tutoring and do not live in these areas, please contact us.


Does your student prefer to work out of his or her bedroom? Are you recuperating from an injury at home? On vacation, but want to keep up your tutoring? Do you live outside the Washington metro area?

We have successfully tutored students using video conferencing technology. In these cases, our remote students regularly improve grades and test scores at the same rate as peers who are tutored in-person. Still concerned? Talk to our Parent Outreach Coordinator. 


We partner with some schools to offer on-campus tutoring. Our Parent Outreach Coordinator can speak to you about your in-school options.


We work out of Hera Hub, a co-working space that is walking distance from the Friendship Heights and Tenleytown Metro stations. Sessions at Hera Hub normally take place with at least 24 hours of advance notice.


As requested, our tutors are willing to meet with students at local libraries, coffee shops, and other public locations.
