TigerTutor started in New Jersey in 2010 and has helped hundreds of students in Grades 6-12 improve in English Writing and Reading, SAT/ACT & ISEE/SSAT test prep and Academic Tutoring. We have helped our students get admitted to the best schools in America for computer science, business, engineering, architecture, art, medicine and so many other fields.
We aim to help our students reach their full potential and get admitted into their dream college.
TigerTutor offers some of the best tutors in the world. We work to save you time and money by teaching students the right way the first time. We know college admissions can be a stressful time not only for students but also for parents. We work hard to motivate and encourage our students to do their best so they can succeed in college and beyond.
We have experience working with students with busy schedules and conveniently offer tutoring from the comfort of home.
Our Founder’s Story
Peter Varela — Test Prep Expert, Mentor & Ivy League Advisor
I started TigerTutor because I enjoy teaching and mentoring. Parents came to me because they were not satisfied with their child’s school offerings and they wanted supplemental tutoring to keep their child advanced and challenged.
Since 2010, my team and I have worked with students from all school backgrounds – public, private, boarding, magnet and charter schools – and I created and developed our teaching curriculum based on my experience working with students from all academic levels.
We do not believe in shortcuts or easy solutions but instead help our students prepare the old-fashioned way through diligent preparation, strong work ethic and application of what we teach during our live interactive tutoring classes.
I have worked with students from around the world and I have lived abroad as well. I am fluent in Spanish and proficient in Mandarin Chinese. My language skills give me a unique expertise in helping students who also grew up in non-English speaking households.
I was the first in my family to attend an Ivy League university, and since then I have helped many students be the first in their families to go to a top college.
In my free time, I enjoy reading biographies, playing tennis and listening to classical music. I played the oboe in high school and college orchestras, and I grew up playing the piano. My favorite composer is Rachmaninoff!
I look forward to meeting with you and your child to discuss how TigerTutor is the tutoring solution for your family.
