Who We Are

We teach a lot of things, but there’s one thing we know for sure. Learning is always more effective with another person: someone who can teach us concepts, coach us in strategies, and structure our time, sure, but beyond that, somebody who can open us to a dialogue of ideas, somebody who can get on our level, and somebody who can bring us to their own.


We’ve taken this insight and applied it to our company itself. Our premise is simple. Forum’s tutors are the best in the city, not only because we have the only model in the industry to sustain them as the highest-paying agency in the country, but because we’ve created a community in which we all make each other wiser, more dynamic educators—to get our students the best results.


Welcome to Forum.

Expanded Services for Remote Learning

As we move into the fall, we know that both the level and kind of support that students will need will change drastically in the virtual landscape. We also know that more than ever, each student will have unique needs.


We have spent our summer in consultation with teachers, learning specialists, psychologists, college counselors, and, most importantly, parents in order to prepare ourselves to support our students in the 2020-2021 academic year. To that end, we’re announcing a host of new services to ensure that our students don’t just continue to develop their minds, but in fact make the most of the opportunities presented by virtual education.
