Students Guiding Students:
A Bright Future For Education
We believe in personalized education.
We do this by thoughtfully matching your student with a tutor that compliments their personality and serves as a role model.
Created by UCLA students,
Ignite Tutoring is a tutoring network staffed by top-tier university students and grads servicing local elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as college undergraduates in Los Angeles and the Bay Area.
Our mission at Ignite is to raise the standard for tutoring. Our tutors are not only effective and knowledgeable but also outstanding individuals in all walks of life. From the community to the classroom, our tutors will serve as strong, motivating role models for your students to grow into the young people they strive to be.
What's Ignite Quality?
All tutors are undergraduate students enrolled at top-tier universities, and Ignite Tutoring has an admission rate of around 20% from those select schools.
UCLA has a 12% acceptance rate
UC Berkeley has a 16% acceptance rate
Stanford has a 4% acceptance rate
USC has a 14% acceptance rate
Caltech has a 6% acceptance rate
To be considered, tutors must be well-rounded and have a vast array of hobbies and interests, including, but not limited to: sports, arts, academic pursuits, passions, past and present jobs & internships, volunteering in their community, and more. Ignite will work to match your student with a tutor based on similarity.
Selective Hiring Process
Tutors are hand-selected via
a rigorous two-part interview process, extensive resume, and application review, and a final teaching capability assessment. All tutors have experience with children and teaching. Tutors also each individually go through a background check and receive all employment benefits under California law.
All tutor applicants are heavily scrutinized for high amiability and what we believe to be their capability to create friendships with their students. Our tutors are upstanding citizens in and out of the classroom and serve as excellent role models for your student to look up to!
