Mission Statement


Elite Private Tutor’s mission is simple – to make your child a successful learner and a confident student while making parents’ lives easier everyday.

Company Culture

“Alone we are smart. Together we are brilliant”

Steven Anderson

We may offer virtual tutoring, but we haven’t lost touch with what matters most – communication and close interpersonal relationships with the families we serve. Elite Private Tutors maintains its reputation of excellence because of the attention and detail we provide to our clients.

Here’s how we do that:

We Deliver Elite Level Service 

ELITE is such a short, simple word, yet it encompasses so much strength. In order to provide Elite Level Service, you must differentiate yourself, which means taking a step outside the traditional tutoring box. You must do something that goes above and beyond what’s expected. And whatever you do must have an emotional impact on the person you’re doing it for. We are not your average tutoring company, our services far exceed the norm, because we don’t want our students be just average. We want them to excel in the most Elite way possible. Whether internally with co-workers or externally with our customers and partners, we are delivering Elite results with every action we take.

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new”


We Embrace and Drive Change

An important part of running a thriving company means knowing to change with the times. This means, the change in academic standards and educational expectations on a year-to-year basis. It means working with the team member that can best fit your needs. It means adapting to new strategies that are proven to work. Our philosophy here? Nothing in life is constant, and well-prepared students are adaptable ones. We teach our students to embrace change enthusiastically, and perhaps even more importantly, to encourage and drive it.

We Bring the Fun Back to Learning

Learning can be fun too, and we certainly make this a reality at Elite Private Tutors. We don’t follow the same rigor and monotonous routines that some big, corporate companies use. We look for both fun and humor in our daily work, because it’s these moments that will make the most impact on the students we work with.

We Believe in Learning Equality for All

Our company culture is what makes us successful, and in our culture, we celebrate and embrace our diversity and each person’s individuality. Everyone at Elite Private Tutors has a different working style, just as each student has a learning style all their own – and we celebrate that! We want people to express their personality in their work.

We Pursue Growth and Learning

Each student we work with provides us the opportunity to learn and grow alongside the client, because of the level of collaboration we apply.  Any learning and growing experience has to be a joint effort, in order for the hard work to make an impact. We grow because we take on new challenges, and we face even more new challenges because we’re growing. It’s a beautiful cycle with no end, and it’s a good thing: it’s the only way for both of us to succeed.

We Lead with Honesty and Believe in Good Communication

Honesty and open communication make for the best and most successful relationships in any situation. Positive relationships that are open and honest are a big part of what differentiates Elite Private Tutors from most other companies, as is our commitment to using data to drive change. You will be in constant contact with your child’s service provider to know exactly what is happening and when, and the same stands for your child’s teachers and/or guidance counselors. Detailed reports will be provided following each session, as this is the evidence we use to continue differentiating your child’s learning plan.

“Your life is your message to the world, make sure it’s inspiring”

We are Passionate and Love What We Do

It won’t be long before you realize how passionate we are about the work that we do. This is a true labor of love, fueled by the daily successes we witness in each of the children we work with.

College Shortcuts is excited to partner with World Teacher Aid and part of the proceeds of any purchase on our site will be going towards us building a school in Kenya during October 2017.
