We mean that ALL of our educators are experienced classroom teachers who are considered masters of their subject matter and have a record of proven success! While most companies may hire part-time ‘tutors’ such as graduate students or individuals that have never worked in a school setting, 100% of Embrace educators have at least 3 years of teaching experience. Embrace is dedicated to screening, recruiting, and selecting only highly qualified and proven teachers to meet our students’ academic and personal needs.

The average size for the small group classes is 8 students.

Do you offer make up sessions? What happens if I have a schedule conflict with the class calendar?

While we highly encourage for students to participate in all of the intensive prep sessions to achieve a maximum score, we at Embrace empathize that students may have a schedule conflict. Because of this, we offer the students additional make-up sessions built into the classes or the option for students to attend a later class session.
