Careers at Compass

Compass Education Group is one of the world’s leading academic tutoring and test preparation companies. We provide completely customized one-on-one instructional programs and group classes for thousands of students annually. The company is privately held by its four partners who are owner-operators with a combined 90 years of experience in educational services and tutoring businesses.

Our dedicated management teams totaling 50 professionals lead our regional offices in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. and support our elite pool of hundreds of instructors specializing in high-stakes admission tests and tutoring for a full range of academic subjects. Compass’ stellar reputation within the education community is the result of decades of ethical conduct and consistently guiding students to highly successful outcomes on tests.

Beyond its private client business, Compass is recognized by the education community as the most trusted source of research and guidance on the topic of college admission testing. We are keynote speakers at hundreds of high schools and many higher education conferences each year, we maintain one of the industry’s most popular and respected blogs, and we are go-to sources for education reporters in the national media. Our annual Guide to College Admission Testing reaches well over 100,000 readers annually and is considered to be the definitive authority on its subject matter. We are proud to share the Guide and related resources free of charge through schools and counselors worldwide. We also partner with dozens of schools and community-based organizations to provide no-cost or low-cost test preparation to students from under-resourced backgrounds.
