It's College App Time!

For many the end of Halloween signifies the beginning of the big holiday season push. For us, however, and for millions of high school seniors, this time of year is connected to something even more important: college applications.

Fall of senior year can be an incredibly stressful time in a student's life. Not only are seniors working hard to keep their grades up and score high marks on the SATs, they're also faced with the new challenge of putting together applications that highlight all of the amazing things they've done over the past 17 years or so. It can be a daunting task.

Luckily, help is available. Our November deal offers 10% off tutoring services that can ease the process both for students and parents. This includes tutoring on the SAT, study skills, and college essay writing. Our tutors have been able to help students through the process and give them they tools they need to get into the college of their choice. Russ, the parent of a Menlo School graduate writes, "Hannah is headed to Princeton and I am happy to report that it would not have occurred without [Tutorpedia]'s tutoring in AP Chem. Thanks." Find your tutor now!

We'll also be doing a couple of free talks in the Bay Area for parents or students thinking about or in the midst of the college application process. We hope you can join us for one or both of the following talks:
