From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our students achieve substantial score increases for four simple reasons: (1) We match tutors and students strategically, (2) The assigned tutor customizes lessons rather than following a script, (3) The entire company strategizes about the student's success, (4) We consider the whole human being.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
We provide all test prep materials. You only need to bring writing utensils, a notepad and calculator.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Dr. Darian M. Parker founded Parker Academics in 2015 as a caring, intellectually rigorous alternative to the impersonal culture of test prep and tutoring in New York City.
What do you love most about your job?
It is rewarding to train students to be thoughtful, strategic, fearless problems solvers. For, we know that if students can master these skills now, then they will have a set of intellectual and emotional resources to solve any type of problem--academic or otherwise.
