Our instructors

What truly sets GoPeer apart is our instructors. We’re extremely selective — we hire fewer than 5% of applicants, and our private tutors come from top colleges & universities. We hand-match students to make sure that everyone has an instructor that’s right for them. We believe that GoPeer’s instructors are the best in their field and provide mentorship that other tutors don’t offer.

All tutors are currently enrolled college students

Every tutor applicant is reviewed and screened by the GoPeer team. When evaluating tutors, we look for prior tutoring or teaching experience, subject expertise, and a desire to help other students.
