Our tutoring team is made up of engaging, smart tutors who are all from top schools like Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania, just to name a few. Our students already have teachers, counselors, and parents; as tutors, we provide a different, more relatable perspective.
At Dewey Smart, no student’s path looks the same. We help everyone, regardless of where they start or where they want to end up. Our team will create a personalized curriculum, so we can target your student’s weaknesses without wasting time on their strengths.
We have proven results. This year alone, our students have gotten into Cornell, Columbia, and Northwestern. On average, students see 150 point increases on the SAT and 5 point increases on the ACT. As tutors, we’ve aced the whole admissions process, and we make sure our students do the same.
After graduating high school, our founder Michael Gao started tutoring younger friends. He realized that high school was needlessly stressful; with a little 1-1 mentorship from an empathetic, smart tutor, school and the admissions process could actually be fun.
Now, he leads a growing team of Ivy League tutors. Michael graduated with a 4.0 GPA, scored a 36 on his ACT, 1560 on his SAT, and was admitted into schools like Columbia, Wharton, and Brown. His other tutors all go to top schools and scored in the 99th percentile on their admissions tests.
Our passion is passing down the tips, tricks, and lessons we learned when we successfully navigated high school and the admissions process

“Don’t use a pebble to kill a pigeon; use a boulder to destroy a vulture nest.” Now that 96% of colleges are SAT and ACT optional, high school summer extracurriculars are so much more important. It used to be that you could get good grades, get a 1570 on the...

The college admissions process has become increasingly complex and competitive. With help from our peer tutors and admissions counselors, students will be better prepared to navigate the application process and build a coherent narrative to impress colleges, ultimately allowing students to get into their dream colleges.
Here at Dewey Smart, we believe that students don’t just need information to succeed; they need empathetic mentorship. As peer mentors, we pride ourselves on building real relationships with our students, so they feel comfortable asking us for help when advice from teachers, counselors, and even parents may not be working.
