About Our Tutors

Global Gurus tutors will only be selected from top global institutions such as Harvard, Princeton, and Oxford. As extremely successful individuals, students at these institutions must not only be highly proficient academically, but they also have a deep understanding of what it takes to excel in a rigorous academic culture. Moreover, our desire is to only select those tutors who have a heart to work with students and help them achieve their goals academically and beyond.



“Amanda listens with sincere interests. As a result, she could quickly engage my child, who is normally quite shy. Amanda also cares about instilling in a student positive values, such as curiosity, perseverance and kindness. She provides very helpful information that supports continued learning too. We highly recommend her as an educator.”

“Amanda is an international educator who is passionate about helping children learn better. She has extensive experiences designing and delivering education programs for individual students to reach their academic goals. I have no doubt that Global Gurus will broaden your child’s horizon to contribute to the world for good.”
