Our Mission

Harvard Student Agencies Tutoring is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization exclusively made up of current Harvard students who seek to share their experiences, opportunities, and talents. Founded in 2006, our mission at HSA Tutoring is to share the opportunities and experiences of Harvard students with younger students and ignite their passion for learning.

It’s not what you think; it’s how you think.

Many students are eager to hear Harvard students’ secret to academic success. But to let you in on the real secret: there is none. Harvard students were not born with an innate capability to excel. In fact, every Harvard student faces academic challenges, whether that be in a subject that they are not particularly adept to or their favorite subject. However, through the encouragement and commitment of their teachers and mentors, they are able to gain the confidence to fully apply themselves to their studies despite the challenges, and even gain an enthusiasm for what they are learning. At HSA Tutoring, we believe that these interpersonal connections are crucial for unlocking every student’s maximum potential. By affecting mindset as well as knowledge, our tutors aspire to not only build a student’s confidence in difficult material but also push them to discover an enthusiasm and love of learning.

 

Our Tutors

We understand that all students are different in the way that they learn, which is why our tutors are all different in the ways that they teach. Our tutors are trained to adapt their own personal affinities to the narratives of their students. If a student feels like their tutor is not well-suited to their personal learning style, we will first work to match them with a different tutor more aligned with their needs. But there is one thing in common with every tutor: a lasting impression on the education of their students. After our students feel ready to move on from their tutoring, we want to leave them with a desire to learn more. Everyone deserves to feel confident in the classroom, and HSA Tutoring strives to motivate students so they can excel going forward. 

 

Return Policy & Hour Transferrals

At HSA Tutoring, we understand that education is not transactional. That is why we guarantee that if students do not show improvement, we will fully reimburse them for all their hours. Because when students commit their time to HSA Tutoring, they are investing in their own futures. In order to facilitate the continuation of our student’s education, all tutoring hours are transferable between our private tutoring, group course, and crimson coaching offerings. We understand that improvement is an ongoing journey.
