Not long after graduating with a degree in Economics from Stanford University, Andrew started his tutoring business with one client and a 1986 VW Jetta. Since that day in June of 2002, Hammer has provided more than 100,000 hours of tutoring and established itself as a leader in private, one-to-one tutoring. Our SAT and ACT programs have helped students gain admission to the most selective colleges and universities in the country, including Stanford, Harvard and Yale.
From his company’s inception, Andrew has never wavered in his commitment to teaching the student and then the content. Coupling his experience in competitive athletics and competitive academics, Hammer’s system combines motivational techniques, high performance study skills, solid fundamentals, and professional tutors.
While most companies are simply contracting with inexperienced tutors and expecting them to learn on the job, Hammer prides itself on providing a support network to help tutors become great. We offer extensive training programs and ongoing workshops, as well as require tutors to meet weekly with an adviser. As a company dependent on customer referrals, we take every possible measure to ensure that each student gets the highest quality of service.
