Cambridge Coaching academic tutors are doctoral candidates at Harvard, MIT, Columbia, Cornell, NYU and Princeton’s top-ranked PhD programs. Some of our tutors are pursuing professional paths as MDs, JDs, MBAs, while others are college graduates who have shown themselves to be outstanding teachers. Our hiring is selective, but it also follows basic common sense: we hire qualified tutors for subjects and standardized tests where their expertise is most helpful to students. We are especially proud of our ability to match students at all levels with tutors who are truly invested in the subjects they are teaching. Check out the complete listing of our tutors.
Our academic tutors are grouped into four categories based on their level of teaching experience and feedback from students. Only tutors who receive consistently outstanding feedback are promoted. Because we work with doctoral candidates who are pursuing long courses of study, many of our tutors stay with us for as many as seven or eight years, honing their teaching. Our most experienced tutors hold workshops for less experienced ones, and we try to cultivate an environment in which every tutor can excel in her work.
