How does Hammer compare to other tutoring and test prep companies?2018-09-20T09:59:31+00:00

Hammer prides itself on providing the highest quality of tutoring in the industry. We achieve an unparalleled level of quality by focusing on the following:

  • Careful Hiring – We hire less than 1 percent of applicants.

  • Tutor Development – All tutors work through an intensive certification program over the course of many weeks before ever meeting with a student. Additionally, tutors meet 1:1 with a master trainer every week to discuss student development, as well as attend a monthly seminar hosted by the founder of Hammer Prep.

  • Team Approach – We support our students and parents with a knowledgeable adviser to answer any questions throughout tutoring.

  • Expert Guidance  – Hammer prides itself on providing honest and helpful answers based on 15+ years in the business.
