Our Philosophy: Deep Learning Through Deep Relationships
At Top Score Education, our journey starts with investing in your family’s future.
We are a company of educators—writers, book worms, travelers, math geeks, sports nuts, spouses, and parents. Our love for the written word and chalk-scrawled numerals flow through the arteries of this company to keep it dynamic and fresh—anything but standardized. We intimately understand the path laid out before you—because we ourselves took stride on those steps. This shared understanding bolsters our belief that deep learning is achieved through deep relationships.
We do not promote shortcuts or routine memorization—our role is to shake scholastic tradition as alarm clocks for dogmatic slumber. Problem-solving, whether on the SAT or in life, requires active breakdown and reconstruction. Realizing personal greatness requires giving all of oneself. This drives our programs for students and our recruitment for tutors at every level. We won’t let you settle for less.
Our Tutors: Experienced Educators & Lifelong Learners
Top Score Education, founded by a Duke University alumnus, is a collection of experienced educators and lifelong learners—many of whom are also Duke graduates. Joining them are passionate academics who attended or are enrolled in graduate programs at Stanford, Princeton, MIT, University of Oxford, Cornell, Boston College, and the London School of Economics.
While all of us are proud jacks and jills of all trades, some are Masters of Writing, History, and Education, while others are Doctors of Philosophy and Engineering. Our team hosts NCAA championships swimmers, globe-trotting photographers, and piezoelectric engineers. We promote work-life balance for our staff. Encouraging travel or exploration means educators bring enthusiasm, inspiration, and additional perspective to our students.
No person in their right mind should care as much about process-based approach and reading comprehension strategy as we do, yet we find ourselves surrounded by Top Score educators who share the same energy and intensity to help their students achieve their best. To achieve more than they thought possible. To achieve greatness. This isn’t a job for us—it’s a vocation.
