Live Learning Platform Varsity Tutors Launches Free Live, Online SAT/ACT Test Prep Classes for all US Students

St. Louis-based Varsity Tutors, the live learning platform that connects learners and experts, has launched the nation’s first ever free live, online SAT and ACT test prep classes called Test Prep 4 All to increase access for all students in the United States.

Founded in 2007 at Washington University in St. Louis, Varsity Tutors seamlessly connects learners and experts in any subject, anywhere, at any time. It helps teachers and students connect with the right tutor and right when they need them most. The company’s innovative live learning platform and rigorous tutor screening process break down the barriers of typical learning technology, allowing students and their tutors to enjoy a personalized one-on-one experience, anywhere, anytime.

Varsity Tutors facilitates both online and in-home tutoring with highly-credential tutors and flexible scheduling. Experts are available to meet in person or through the company’s award-winning online and mobile platforms, which account for the majority of all sessions. To date, Varsity Tutors has conducted over four million hours of live instruction on its platform.

With its Test Prep 4 All initiative, Varsity Tutors aims to give away $50 million worth of classes to millions of students in the United States to help increase the accessibility of high-quality college prep classes.

Emphasizing on the importance of live classes to help improve access to higher education for all students, Chuck Cohn, Founder and CEO of Varsity Tutors, said,

“The college admissions scandal in the spring has brought to the forefront that there are vast inequalities when it comes to the college admissions process. There’s a clear need to level the playing field and these live classes will help improve access to higher education for all students. The technology exists for us to build a large scale, live class platform that makes test prep more accessible to millions of students. It’s an idea that we hope will have a transformative impact on student’s college admissions opportunities.”

With this initiative, students across the US can, for the first time, take free live, online class in real-time, no matter where they are in the country. Varsity Tutors’ live, online classes follow curricula that are proven to help students improve their test performance and will be taught by its Chief Academic Officer Brian Galvin. The classes will consist of ten sessions, each 2.5 hours in length, and will be timed to sync with major test dates throughout the year for a total of 25 hours of live instruction. Both classes will entail live and interactive instruction, weekly homework, and two-three full-length practice tests. There will also be teaching assistants in the classes to allow students to ask questions and receive answers in real-time.

Varsity Tutors’ ACT class is set to begin on September 24 and end on October 24. Sessions will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00-8:30 P.M. CT. And, the free SAT class will begin on September 30 and end on October 30. For SAT, sessions will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00-8:30 P.M. CT.
