Anagh Agarwal

SAT 1600, ACT 36 Yale University

Devika Kothari

DAIS

I really appreciated the efforts of everyone at AP Guru from the prompt reminders to the regularly-scheduled doubt sessions that guaranteed I didn’t overlook a single mistake. My teachers helped me thoroughly and provided me with enough resources and strategy guides to successfully attempt the SAT.

Praruj Sampat
Temple - Full Scholarship

Working with the AP Guru admissions team was the best decision I made. I thought it was too late to get my applications in place, but the counselling team made sure that it wasn’t the case. Without them, getting into colleges with scholarships would have been nigh impossible.They were the key to my success.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who are the AP Guru tutors and counselors?
    expand_more

    We have hand-selected a small group of highly qualified tutors and counsellors who have mastery over teaching and helping students in the university admissions process. Our tutors and counsellors also need to have significant previous teaching and/or counseling experience and be very gifted, dynamic teachers.

  • Where are your Programs held?
    expand_more

    We conduct our programs both online and at our Mumbai offices in Santacruz and Marine Drive.

    Is this a live class? Will it be a group or private class?
    All our classes are live instructor lead classes. The classes will either be held in our centres in Mumbai or online. All our academic tutoring and counselling are only one-on-one. The AP, SAT and ACT classes could either be in a small group (less than 6 students) or private.

  • When is the best time to get started?
    expand_more

    The earlier the better! When students come to us right before it is time to apply to college, there is only so much we can do. We can certainly help these students with score improvements and craft as compelling an application as possible, but we are given experiences and data points that cannot be altered.

    When students come to us early in their educational careers, we pair them with a counselor to help them develop as applicants, students, and people early on. We help students strategize early, build their profiles, and stand out from their peers. We help students explore and develop their academic interests, engage in unique and meaningful extracurricular activities, strengthen their personal qualities and leadership skills, and ultimately, position them to get into the best schools possible. We start building on your academic foundations so you have enough time to ace your SAT test.

    It takes A LOT of hard work, strategy, determination, and self-reflection to get into the school of your dreams. At AP Guru, we are here, every step of the way, to help you get there.

  • How involved are parents during the counseling process?
    expand_more

    An important part of the college admissions process is helping students build confidence and maturity in an effort to help them prepare for life in college and beyond. Therefore, we believe the process should be student-centered. However, we also recognize and appreciate that parents are an essential part of this process and we help them identify their appropriate roles while enabling them to contribute their unique knowledge regarding their student. At several points throughout the process we also facilitate family meetings as we view communication as a critical component of the support we provide. Parents are always welcome to check in on the process, ask questions and express concerns.

  • Does you only help students who want to go to top schools?
    expand_more

    No. We know that each student is different and has unique goals and aspirations. Our focus is to help each student find the schools that will be the best matches for them, where they will be happiest and thrive.

  • What kind of results should I expect?
    expand_more

    We expect our students to succeed; students who follow our instruction will see their scores increase greatly or get accepted into many of their target universities. In terms of academic scores, for students not already at the top of the range, we typically want to see at least a 20 percentile rank improvement (the actual raw score this translates to varies across the scale). Going from the 50th to 70th percentile or from the 70th to 90th typically opens up a whole new range of schools for students.
