Our Story

Varsity Tutors was born out of the educational experiences of our founder and CEO, Chuck Cohn. In high school, private tutoring helped him move from an F to an A+ in honors geometry. But it also paired him with a French tutor who didn’t speak great English. And sometimes, it was just too difficult to find tutoring in time to make a difference.

That experience continued as Chuck struggled to find access to high-quality tutoring for one of his courses at Washington University in St. Louis. One night, he had an epiphany—great tutoring is only effective if you have reliable access to the right tutor for your situation.

With that revelation in mind, and a whole lot of hustle, Chuck built Varsity Tutors—a company that combines highly-credentialed experts with an advanced technology platform dedicated to live, personalized instruction.

The average student juggles half a dozen—or more—classes, a variety of extracurricular activities, sports commitments, and perhaps a part-time job. When educational resources are easily accessible via a smartphone or tablet, students can benefit tremendously.
