Arthur Emery, Founder & Co-Owner

As a student of disciplines ranging from math to law to physics to philosophy and beyond, I have come to realize one important thing about learning:

It is not who you are, but who has taught you that makes all the difference.


Every student has the capacity to understand the material they're studying, and deserves to be given the chance to do so. It doesn't matter if you are learning quantum physics or basic addition, if you have a teacher who can explain your material to you in a way that makes sense, then you can learn anything.

That's where I come in.

My job is to explain a student's material in as many ways as necessary for them to understand it. By focusing on each student's individual learning style I am not helping them answer problems, I am helping them unlock their own potential and find the skills they need to succeed long after I'm gone.
