Applying for Tutoring

Kara Tutoring is proud to offer FREE SAT, SAT II, ACT, AP, IB, GCSE, A Levels, TOEFL, IELTS, Egzamin ósmoklasisty, Class 10 CBSE, WASSCE, & general subject tutoring to financially disadvantaged students. We are searching for more deserving students to take part in our program!

We offer our students one-on-one Zoom sessions, in which we teach new content, go through practice tests, and most importantly, go through different strategies for the test or essential content for your class. We measure our success on how much you improve by. Thus, we do not set limits on how long you can stay in the program.

Please note that a failure to respond to WhatsApp messages within 72 hours without any justifiable reason may result in disqualification from the program. It is necessary to download WhatsApp in order to communicate with your tutor, the COO, and the entire Kara Tutoring organization!

We are currently experiencing higher-than-normal application volume due to extenuating circumstances globally as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent school closures in certain parts of the world. As a result, we are facing a severe shortage of tutors for certain exams. Expect wait times for TOEFL & IELTS tutoring. We ask for your cooperation as we diligently work to assign students to tutors as quickly as possible and thank you for your patience.

Stanley Zhao, Chief Communications Officer

Although we have recently added WASSCE to our tutoring options, we have limited capacity to offer this subject right now. Thank you for your understanding.
