Tutors at TA hail from top organizations around the world. Whether they are Ivy alums or startup engineers, our mentors will share valuable experience and insight.
Students who work with TA see dramatic changes in their lives—from improved academics to newfound motivations. Here are their stories.
Thank you so much for everything. You are not just a tutor but more of a mentor. You really motivated me to put in the work to achieve my goals. You taught me that achieving a goal doesn’t happen at the snap of my fingers. I have to envision my goal, set checkpoint goals, and not be afraid to fail. Although I will be leaving Tokyo, I will forever remember the grind seshes. Thank you, and I will miss you a lot.
From English papers to college apps and even the occasional STEM help, I cannot thank you enough. I’ve come across my fair share of teachers – the good, the bad, and the okay. You, however, have left the greatest impact on me. You are one of the amazing ones and have continued to inspire me and a lot of my friends, even though we don’t make it too easy for you at times. You were undeniably hard on me at times, but I appreciate it so much now because you have pushed me to become a much better writer. I really credit everything I’ve accomplished and my self-confidence to you. I really don’t know where I’d be without you. You are so much more than just a tutor. I will take your lessons with me wherever I go. Thank you for always believing in me – you showed me how capable I am.
I can’t believe I’m graduating already! I swear it felt like just a few days ago when I was still attending your SAT class at TA during the summer. You have single handedly changed my life (and I am not exaggerating that at all). When I first got to talk to you, I remember having a conversation about where I wanted to go for university and what were my plans for the future and I remember the disappointing look that you gave me when I showed you my sophomore year grades haha! From the bottom of my heart I truly want to thank you for never giving up on me and want you to know that you have the greatest role model that I could have asked for. Once again, thank you for making me the person that I am today.
I can’t believe the time has come for me to write you this letter (not to mention graduate). I also can’t believe it’s been 2 years since you took me under your wise wing and started tutoring me. Tbh when I first saw you at TA, I thought to myself, “Why is he so energetic at 9 in the morning?!” Thank you for everything you’ve helped me through these past few years. I’m not even kidding, I would probably be a hella panicking teenager if it weren’t for your constant support. You’ve seriously helped me through so many hurdles in life. You’re one of my biggest role models in life, and I’m eternally grateful I got to be your student.
