Varsity Tutors provides a curated marketplace for high-quality tutors, online learning environments, and cloud-based assessments. Its curated, quality-controlled marketplace features some of the highest caliber private tutors in the United States. The company was created in 2007 to provide an alternative to the impersonal "cookie cutter" services offered by big-name tutoring companies. Varsity Tutors' mission is to improve the academic achievement of all students by providing customized, effective tutoring services that foster intellectual and personal development in a positive learning atmosphere. Students can access a powerful digital learning platform and are matched with a professional tutor who is best able to address their unique needs. 

Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the academic achievement of all students by providing high quality individualized tutoring services that foster intellectual and personal development in a positive learning atmosphere.

How do we achieve this goal?

Varsity Tutors is committed to working closely with students and their families to provide customized, one-on-one tutoring instruction that helps students achieve their academic goals. Our experienced directors begin by assessing every student’s needs, selecting a tutor that is the best fit for each individual student, and monitoring students’ progress over time. Our elite group of tutors brings a wealth of experience in their individual fields of academic expertise to their students. They individualize students’ lessons and present materials and concepts in engaging, easy-to-understand ways that keep students motivated and on the road to success.

How do the tutoring sessions work?

  • Call us with any of your tutoring needs (homework, exams, test prep, etc.)
  • We will select the tutor who best meets your needs and has met our stringent requirements
  • The tutor will call you to arrange the sessions at a mutually agreed upon location or online
  • We can provide tutoring online, in your home, at a library, or anywhere else that is convenient

 From Chuck Cohn - FOUNDER & CEO


As a high school honors student, Chuck struggled to find a highly effective tutor who could help him with his more difficult Advanced Placement classes and standardized test preparation. The overpriced big-name national tutoring companies didn’t offer personalized service in specific subjects and spent little time on their tutor recruitment efforts. They also didn’t sufficiently leverage learning technology and content. Searching on directory sites or tutor marketplaces yielded spotty results. Cohn recognized that there was an opportunity to provide best-in-class tutoring at a moderate price in the comfort of clients’ homes and online by focusing on identifying outstanding tutors and eliminating the extra costs traditionally associated with national tutoring companies. In 2007, while he was a student at Washington University in St. Louis, Cohn recognized that two of his good friends would make perfect tutors: they were brilliant, friendly, and could explain difficult concepts better than any tutor he had ever had. Cohn founded Varsity Tutors and hired his two brilliant friends as the first two tutors. The feedback he received from parents was outstanding and so he began recruiting other talented individuals who had the communication and technical skills necessary to be amazing tutors. Since then, Varsity Tutors has grown to over 5,000 tutors across the United States, established a team of expert educational directors who oversee every aspect of the client relationship, and built powerful online learning technology that aids its tutoring.

    Working at Varsity Tutors has taken the stress out of finding new clients and dealing with payment.

    I have been working at Varsity Tutors part-time (less than a year)


    As someone who dislikes the marketing aspect of being a tutor, Varsity Tutors is great because it does all the work for me. They bring the clients directly to me. And I don't have to deal with in-person money transactions during sessions. I simply log the session online and Varsity Tutors takes care of it all. The directors are friendly, always on call and eager to help whenever possible.


    The only downside I can think of is the hourly pay is not as high as if I were finding clients independently, but that is understandable.
