Academic Tutoring

Compass specializes in online and in-person tutoring across a wide range of academic subjects. From middle school, through high school, and into college, our tutoring can help students stay on pace and get ahead.

Compass has a deep and talented team of subject-specific experts ready to begin custom programs that complement your coursework. Many of our tutors have advanced degrees in the subjects that students struggle with the most.

Academic tutoring begins with an assessment of your needs. Our tutors can follow along with the curriculum provided by the teacher or professor but they can also provide supplemental work to shore up concepts learned in the classroom.

Our one-on-one academic tutors provide individualized instruction, attention, and support with subject content. Academic programs are very flexible, with pay-as-you-go and package options.

Study Skills and Organizational Coaching (SSOC)

Now more than ever, students are being called upon to take responsibility for their own learning experience. Compass’s Study Skills and Organizational Coaching is designed to help students develop the study, time management, and organizational skills to help them stay on track. 

Where academic tutoring is focused on helping students learn material that is being taught in class, SSOC is focused on helping students apply systems like the Pomodoro System of Time Management or the Cornell Note-Taking Method. A Compass-trained SSOC tutor will work with your student to develop a system of studying and organization that works for your student: no more missed deadlines, last-minute cram sessions, or wasted time searching through unintelligible notes. This program goes beyond just monitoring schoolwork: our goal is to equip students with skills they can take with them to college and beyond.

Compass focuses on customized, one-on-one tutoring. We take the time to evaluate your strengths and weaknesses, then make personalized recommendations. Your college goals, your learning style, your schedule, even your extracurricular interests—we take all of this into account in matching you with the ideal instructors. Read more about our approach.

We always look forward to sharing our expertise, either in a conversation or in our free College Admission Testing Guide.

Success Stories

We began working with Compass when our oldest daughter was a sophomore to get her more prepared for the SAT. From the start, they and their tutors have exceeded all expectations. My daughter enjoyed meeting with the tutors and gained more tools, tips, and practice than we could ever have hoped for. We were so pleased that we engaged Compass to work with our younger daughter and in both cases their scores and confidence improved immensely! My opinion of Compass and their tutors is so high that when my daughter sought help for her AP Calc BC class, I immediately reached out to Compass, and they connected us with the perfect tutor. They have proven to vastly differentiate themselves from any other tutoring or SAT prep organization. They are worth every penny and I can’t recommend them more highly!

We are so grateful for all you did to help Crystal understand how to study with dyslexia and be the best student she could be. Your tutors were exceptional and so caring about Crystal's needs and challenges. The good news - she has gone on to graduate with honors and will attend her first-choice university. Thank you so much!

Our three kids each attended different high schools and had unique strengths and challenges. We used Compass for tutoring for the ACT for all three kids, and also for some supplemental math tutoring for our daughter. Each of our kids’ ACT scores improved dramatically as a direct result of the Compass tutors’ guidance. And our daughter’s understanding and achievement in her school math class also improved noticeably. Perhaps best of all, Compass managed to match our kids with tutors who perfectly fit each of our kids’ unique personalities and learning needs, in addition to being talented, courteous, and reliable. And the Compass directors and office staff were always accessible, attentive and responsive. A 100% pleasant and positive experience all the way around.
