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.
