We are a company dedicated to teaching.
Founded in 2005 by PhD candidates at Harvard, Cambridge Coaching continues to maintain a staff of the most talented tutors available anywhere.
Cambridge Coaching began as a group of friends who also happened to be Harvard and MIT PhDs.
We have never been a large corporation. Rather, we are a cooperative of physicists, historians, economists, literary critics, business scholars, chemists, sociologists, lawyers, linguists, biologists, and mathematicians who provide exceptional one-on-one tutoring, academic support, and admissions coaching to our students. We do not advertise heavily and most of our business still comes by word of mouth. We like our students, and we think our students like us. Many of the students with whom we work have been with us for years. We believe in academic mentorship. We also believe that the best mentors are inspirational role models: scholars, thought leaders, and world changers.
Cambridge Coaching is the cumulative achievement of academics who care about professional pedagogy.
We do not hire undergraduates because we believe that teaching requires expertise, as well as enthusiasm. Our tutors are PhD candidates at Harvard and MIT, as well as other top graduate programs. We hire MBA, law and medical candidates for standardized tests and subject areas where their expertise is invaluable. Our team also includes college graduates who received a BA or BS with distinction, and who display exceptional accomplishments and promise as teachers. We pay our tutors the majority of the fee we earn, our financial processes are consistent and transparent, and we are constantly striving to be more fair to our tutors. We are known among doctoral candidates at top graduate programs as a company run by academics for academics. We are part of the extended academic family. Consequently, we are able to recruit and retain outstandingly talented tutors.
We are proud that our staff is composed of PhD candidates, members of Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude graduates of top undergraduate institutions, Rhodes Scholars, Marshall Scholars, McKinsey Scholars, and countless other amazingly talented teachers.
Our tutors routinely win teaching awards for their work as Harvard's Teaching Fellows; nearly all our tutors have been formally acknowledged as outstanding teachers at their respective universities. Former Cambridge Coaching tutors have gone on to posts as professors at America’s most prestigious colleges and universities. In addition, we exclusively hire personable, patient and pleasant teachers. We believe that academic mentorship requires personality as well as brains. In their spare time, our tutors are novelists, poets, bloggers, journalists, dancers, basketball players and entrepreneurs. We like to think that our tutors are pretty cool.
Everyone has a different education path. We will meet you exactly where you are on yours.
