About Us

Message From Chirag Arya

Personal Message
Chirag Arya is a founder of AP Guru and has been teaching SAT/ACT and helping students with their college admissions since 2010
Since we began in 2010, we have grown from a boutique SAT/ACT company in Mumbai to serving students from all across the world.

In 2010, AP Guru started with me personally tutoring 10 students on their SAT and ACT, and helping them with the college admissions. The one thing that stood out even then was that a good teacher coupled with a great curriculum can actually make a significant difference on the SAT scores as well as college admissions.

Over the next decade, our team has invested thousands of hours studying, teaching and counselling students on how to ace tests like the SAT or ACT, to get perfect AP and IB scores, and to gain admissions to the most selective universities in the world.

After helping tens of thousands of students around the world get into Ivy League schools, ace their tests, and win millions in scholarships, I’m confident we can help you (or your child) too.

I also realize that many of the students will not be able to avail our services. Therefore, I have put some of my best material out for free in our knowledge centre. I also invite you attend my bi-weekly free webinars. It's meant for parents and students just like you.

Please feel free to reach out me at chirag@apguru.com. I would love to hear from you.

questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are the AP Guru tutors and counselors?

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. For example, majority of our counsellors have degrees from the most selective universities in the world.

Where are your Programs held?

We conduct our programs both online and at select in-person locations.

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.

Do test prep courses work?

Yes! Standardized tests focus on a small, unique set of skills and topics. By knowing exactly what types of questions are on the test, a student gains a distinct advantage. Furthermore, a great tutoring company can build on this advantage by providing a highly individualized learning experience and a wealth of fantastic strategies for all types of students.  We have the evidence from thousands of students across 10+ years that great improvement is possible for nearly everyone.

What kind of results should I expect?

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.

How Do Online Classes Work?

Our online classes are taught in a virtual classroom program that is live over the internet. The instructor and a whiteboard are visible. The students will view a lesson that is identical to a regular classroom with a teacher at the front of the room drawing on the board. Students can use the chat box to interact with the instructor and other students. In addition, the entire class is recorded and for future viewing if students cannot attend a session or need additional review.
