Test scores matter. A few points could be the difference between getting accepted or rejected.
If you are serious about competing for college admissions then you have come to the right place.

What sets us apart

We have helped many students who were the first ones to go to college in America. Students alone often do not know what it takes to succeed to get into one of these top colleges or programs. Parents bring their children to us because we know how to motivate and push our students to do their best when preparing for these standardized tests. Our founder knows what it takes first hand to be admitted into a top college as he was the first in his family to go to Princeton University. We help students with test prep, academic tutoring, mentoring and college admissions consulting.

Proven Track Record

Over 10 years of test prep teaching experience helping hundreds of students.
We do not teach from workbooks nor do we believe in wasting time. Our success comes in developing individually tailored learning plans that meet the needs of each student.
On average, our students improve by 290 points on the SAT and 4 composite points on the ACT and many have achieved perfect scores.

Courses With a Human Face

Since TigerTutor is not some large corporate franchise we have that personal touch where parents can trust that their child will do well on tests and also get mentored on a personal level.
We keep our student info confidential so others won’t know your child is getting help if you don’t want.
We get the job done right the first time to save students time and parents money.
Currently we offer online group and private academic and test prep classes.

Advantages of Online Teaching

In the time of COVID-19, online education is more important than ever before. We were ahead of the curve by offering online tutoring before the pandemic so we have years of experience helping students learn, improve and stay focused using remote learning.
Classes are all live and taught by real teachers (not prerecorded videos).
Students can learn from top-notch teachers when living in any part of the country.
With no need to spend time on the road and with flexible class schedules, let’s focus on studying.
For you to better understand and see how our classes work, we invite all new students to a Free Consultation.

Founded by a Princeton graduate

TigerTutor was founded by Peter Varela who was the first in his family to attend an Ivy League university: Princeton University. Peter founded TigerTutor to offer a new way for students to learn and succeed. Unlike tutoring franchises, TigerTutor provides innovative teaching, engagement and mentoring for students.

What we can help with

For many of our students Reading and Writing are the most challenging subjects so we are experts in helping students in these areas. Of course, we also provide excellent tutoring for the math and science sections in these standardized tests but know that if your child has a weakness in Reading and Writing you have come to the right place. We also help students with time management strategies and other test taking skills.

Our Students Have Benefited From:

  • Improved Test Scores (SAT, ACT, SSAT, PSAT, AP)
  • More college or private school acceptances (Including Ivy League & top schools)
  • Improved writing skills (students are able to better articulate their ideas)
  • Better academic performance and grades (higher GPAs)
  • More scholarship money (qualifying for merit based scholarships)




You schedule a Consultation to learn more about the best test prep and academic tutoring options for your child. We discuss your child’s strengths and weaknesses and the best way we can help turn those weaknesses into strengths. We will go over our class offerings (private 1:1 or small group class) and give our recommendations.

Our online classes are like a brick-and-mortar class with distinct online-only advantages:

You'll participate in a group where each student can interact with every other student as well as the instructor in group discussion — you'll see everyone's faces.

You'll have access to an online shared whiteboard to view the instructor's notes just like you would in a physical classroom.

You’ll have homework assigned after every class to monitor your progress. Mock tests are also part of the prep program.

All classes are live — participate, react, ask questions, and interact all in real-time!



If your child scored a 1300 or lower on an official SAT or a 25 composite score or lower on an official ACT, and his or her test score does not improve after completing our SAT or ACT prep courses, we will refund 100% of your money. See Terms and Conditions.

TigerTutor’s founder, Peter, is a native English speaker and Princeton University graduate who used to live in Beijing and Shanghai. He speaks Mandarin and studied at Beijing Normal University and Fudan University. He also speaks Spanish fluently.
