Company Description

Founded in 2001, Applerouth Tutoring Services 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, Chicago, DC, Houston, New York, & 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 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.
