INSPIRED TUTORING

 

Tungsten Prep helps students achieve their potential and find joy in learning.

 

Tungsten Prep reflects our values for success — rational, realistic, results-oriented, compassionate and, especially, family-centric.  We believe students thrive when they find that just-right tutor who understands their individual learning style, inspires them to work harder, and, hopefully, makes them laugh.  Our team is motivated by Thomas Edison’s conviction that success is the product of grit, self-belief, and a willingness to learn from failure. These are the values we strive to instill in our students.

 

The Tungsten Prep Process

Finding the best tutor for your student.

Schedule a consultation 

We’ll assess your student’s unique needs, develop a customized plan, and answer your questions. After the consultation, complete your intake on the phone or online.

Meet your tutor

We will introduce you to your new tutor as soon as you complete intake. We take care to match each student with a tutor who best suits his or her ideal tutor schedule, learning style, and specific goals.

Start learning
and growing

Begin your lessons! Your student and tutor will dive deep into the subject matter, build study habits and set goals. We send detailed reports after each session to keep students motivated and parents informed.

What will personalized tutoring mean for you?

Less Stress

Enjoy a flexible and customized plan that fits your student’s learning style, goals and busy schedule. Our one-on-one approach means students work smarter and improve grades. We help students rediscover the joy in learning.

More Confidence

Your student needs more than a quick-fix homework helper. Our methods encourage students to build strong foundations in math, reading, writing and critical thinking. Students improve work habits and learn to be accountable to themselves – today in the classroom and tomorrow on the college campus.

Better Support

Managing school and standardized tests has never been more complicated for parents. Students see better results when parents are empowered and informed. We’ll send you detailed reports after each tutoring session and your dedicated parent outreach coordinator will check in regularly to answer questions and share our expertise.

Tutors that Do Outstanding Work

I want to let you know how wonderful our test prep tutor was. He did an outstanding job with our daughter and exceeded all of our expectations in terms of being prepared. This preparation allowed him to meet our daughter where she was and improve her readiness for the SSAT. He gets my highest recommendation. Thank you for the great choice!

Flexible, Goes the Extra Mile

Tungsten Prep is very flexible, always goes the extra mile, and can help with a wide array of academic needs. They helped our 16-year-old son get through the rigorous demands of junior year. We’re not sure what we would have done without them!

A Focus on a Great Tutor Match

Our Math and Physics tutor is a perfect match for our daughter. She looks forward to working with him and readily acknowledges how helpful he is. He really has a wonderful way about him, boosts her confidence, and teaches all at the same time. He’s a delight and a big success.

Engaging Tutors

Our Chemistry tutor is very engaging. Our daughter enjoys working with him, and her grades are already improving. Most importantly, he’s really helping her get over the key hurdles of understanding concepts.

Tutors that Understand Students

Our daughter is really enjoying (!) working with our tutor and finds her style and approach helpful and engaging, along with meeting her ‘where she is.’ I appreciate that our tutor has experience with both middle and high school students. She can relate to the challenges our daughter encounters with the volume of material she has to learn in her Spanish class and be prepared to demonstrate in a final semester exam. I am hopeful the strategies they are working on will help her as she moves into Spanish 3 in 10th grade in a few short weeks.

Great Test Prep Tutor to Student Rapport

Our daughter loves working with her ACT tutor. They have a great rapport. I’m impressed with her too. I’ve chatted with her about strategy, and she always proposes a thoughtful, insightful approach. I left a review on Google and read some of the other reviewers’ many positive comments. Thank you very much for connecting us with one of your Superstars. I feel like a VIP!

Encouraging, Motivating, and Intelligent Tutors

Our SSAT tutor was fantastic! He was so encouraging, motivating, intelligent, and had just the right balance of staying focused without making our son feel pressured or stressed for his SSAT prep. They really connected, and I’m not sure I would have gotten my son to study for the exam if it weren’t for our tutor. Your company is fortunate to have him!

Tutoring that Delivers Confidence on Test Day

Your work paid off and our son took the confidence you gave him into the SAT and killed it! We really appreciate all you did to prepare him and build his positivity and self-control. Thanks again for all your help! Count us as satisfied customers!

Professional Tutors

We’ve tried a number of tutors in the past, but the professionals at Tungsten Prep were the best we’ve worked with by far! They really listened to what we needed, and their ability to understand how a child learns best and work to their strengths was amazing. We are so happy to have found them!
