Company Description

Founded in 2001, Applerouth began in Atlanta as a local tutoring group and a labor of love.  We’ve since grown into a flourishing national organization with more than 200 tutors and offices in Atlanta, DC, New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle.  Our students come to us from all over the world and span the gamut from those in pursuit of perfect SAT scores to those struggling to overcome severe learning differences.  While we’ve expanded our reach, we’ve retained our down-to-earth attitude and innovative approach to education.

We’ve built our business on the motto “Better Tutors. Better Results,” but this emphasis on the quality of our team extends beyond well beyond our tutors.  We are proud of the fact that our instructors, material creators, sales consultants, and service providers all outshine those of other companies in the industry.

Why Work at Applerouth?

  • The Team. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more fun, creative, intelligent group of people. Office meetings may sometimes get nerdy (in a recent one, we may have debated whether it’s grammatically correct to say “myriad of opportunities” versus “myriad opportunities”), but we have a lot of fun. Trivia nights, company lunches, April Fools pranks, etc. abound.

  • Autonomy. We hire the best, and we empower them to do the most. If you’re hitting your goals and keeping your clients happy, you won’t find many micromanagers among us.

  • Growth potential. Our materials and tutoring methods are at the cutting edge of education, and our fantastic results and customer service have contributed to rapid growth year over year. Since we promote from within whenever possible, this translates into myriad opportunities for motivated employees.
