Welcome to CATES, the premier boutique tutoring service for the modern student.
Led by CEO & Founder Chris Ajemian, CATES team members serve the New York Metropolitan area and the international market in test prep, academic tutoring, and admissions support.
What sets CATES apart from New York’s other top in-home tutoring and test prep services is our uniquely customized approach to private tutoring. At CATES, we know that one size does not fit all when it comes to both study plans and tutors — every student has unique needs and learning styles. A good match between tutor and student is crucial to success, and at CATES we take pride in finding the right match for you, whether you're in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island or Westchester. Our tutors draw from the best test prep and academic tutoring resources on the market to create a customized study plan, tailored to the student’s strengths and weaknesses, which works with the student’s already busy schedule. With CATES, you get the right fit, and a partner in the process, whether that’s test prep, academic tutoring, or applying to schools, and a guide on the path to confidence and success in the classroom and beyond.
