Welcome to CATES, the premier boutique tutoring service for the modern student.
Led by CEO and Founder Chris Ajemian, CATES academic tutoring team members serve the New York City, Westchester, Philadelphia, and Bay Area regions in the United States, as well as international markets in London, Zurich and Belgium. Our focus is on standardized test prep, academic tutoring, and both private school admissions and college admissions support. Our firm was founded more than a decade ago as a boutique academic tutoring service that specialized in one-on-one private tutoring in Manhattan. Since then we have grown into expert educational program designers who develop personalized individual tutoring programs for students and who also consult with institutional academic partners to develop supplementary tutoring programs on a larger scale. Whether you are a rising junior in Brooklyn, New York, or in an international high school in Europe, or in a university in China, CATES can power your study program and help you reach your academic goals.
All of our academic programs are based on our time-tested and proven boutique tutoring model. What sets CATES apart from the other top tutoring programs and top test prep services is our uniquely customized approach to delivering high-quality, private, in-home tutoring and test prep services (both private and classroom based).

Our tutors use the best test prep and academic tutoring resources on the market to create a customized study plan, tailored to leverage each individual student's strengths and to improve on weaknesses. This tutoring approach also means that student's with busy schedules are maximizing their study time.
