Chuck CohnFOUNDER & 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. Searching on directory sites 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 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 best 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 hiring other extremely talented individuals who had the communication and technical skills necessary to be amazing tutors. Since then, Varsity Tutors has expanded into 15 other cities and has helped thousands of families.
Here's what our clients are saying
Thank you so much for your help, and for leading your tutor to our daughter. He is not only a remarkable tutor, he was an excellent teacher for our student. Maybe more importantly, our daughter is now armed with the confidence that math is not a hopeless cause, and she really can conquer it. That is a great success story!
Thank you very much for the wonderful service that you have provided for Jose. Jose has learned so much from Amy [our tutor]. I was very impressed with her and your program. Thanks again and please let Amy know how wonderful she is. I was very impressed.
