Other tutors do what they can. We do what they cannot.

Since 2001, Vohra Method has transformed D students into A students, helped ambitious students become valedictorians and award winners, and helped students get into 9 of the 8 Ivy League colleges (we include Stanford).

In SAT training, we teach students how to solve the hard problems other companies tell them to skip. In fact, we guarantee a 300 point improvement or a 1500+ SAT score. In academic training, we help students stand out in their classes and become academic legends. 

We wrote the book (literally) on college application and college essay strategy, and we use unstoppable techniques to give our students a massive advantage over any competitor. 

Our Vocabulary Synapse smartphone app (iPhone, Android) helps students independently develop an advanced vocabulary. Our book, The Equation for Excellence: How to Make Your Child Excel at Math, has been published in the U.S. and China, and remains the gold standard for parents serious about helping their children surpass their international competitors in math. Our speed reading method, Rapid Analytical Reading, is the only method of speed reading specifically designed for complex texts - like what you find in textbooks, literature, and standardized test passages.

We offer two services: elite tutoring and group classes. In tutoring, we help students dominate almost any subject in any school. We help students in elite boarding schools, magnet schools, private schools, public schools, and homeschool. In fact, in our SSAT, ISEE, and Magnet school exam training, we even help kids get into competitive high schools and middle schools! Vohra Tutoring can help with anything from advanced math classes to term papers. 

Our most popular service is our Vohra Method group class. These sessions are completely individualized classes, in which students work separately, have their work closely and constantly analyzed by our elite teachers, and then do responsive worksheets as necessary. The classes use the same individualized, Socratic style of teaching that makes our tutoring so effective - at a fraction of the cost.


Vohra Method Group Classes

Fill in the gaps

You can't figure out an advanced problem if you are missing important prerequisites. Vohra Method's nonlinear curriculum let's us fill in those gaps.

For example, if a student misses a factoring step in a math problem, he then does a factoring worksheet. The worksheet starts with prerequisites, moves on to intermediate problems, and then to advanced/SAT problems. 

That's why we check every step of every problem. If we see any issue, no matter how "small", we immediately address it. 

With constant reinforcement of the most important skills, Vohra Method students develop rock solid foundations, which help them thrive in standardized tests, school exams, and school classes.

Develop hands on mastery

Our students learn by figuring out progressively harder problems in math, reading, and other subjects. We develop these skills hands on, through the Socratic style that is our hallmark, rather than through ineffective lectures.
 

Learn the hardest problems

You'll learn how to do the hardest problems on the SAT (or academic subjects), including the ones other companies and tutors tell you to skip. 
 

Access from anywhere, via Skype

Almost all of our students, even our local ones, come to our live, real-time Skype classes. Students from around the country work side by side, strengthening their foundation and learning advanced material.


About Arvin Vohra

Watch this video for a brief history of the Vohra Method, its techniques, and its success.

Arvin’s passion for educational innovation began while he was studying at the Landon School in Bethesda, MD. Frustrated by the limitations he perceived in standard education, he began to test the limits of a different type of approach. He learned algebra in a few weeks to advance a level in math, and even attended college courses as early as eighth grade. In high school, he received a score of 5 on 10 AP exams to become an AP National Scholar. For 6 of those exams, he did not take the corresponding AP class, and instead relied on intensive outside study. He was also a National Merit Finalist, with the highest SAT and PSAT scores in his graduating class. On the SAT, he received a score of 790 on both the math and verbal sections. He also received a perfect score of 800 on both the Math IIc and Chemistry SAT II tests. For his efforts he was awarded the Rensselaer Medal for Math and Science in his Junior year. During this time, Arvin worked actively as a tutor for younger students, most notably at the North Chevy Chase Elementary School.

Arvin attended Brown University, where his passion for educational innovation continued to grow. He worked as a tutor and teacher as part of the Wheeler School’s Aerie Program. At Wheeler, he designed accelerated and nontraditional curricula for students ranging from second to eighth grade. Later, he worked as a consultant for the Hamilton Institute for Learning Differences. After graduating from Brown University with a B.Sc. in mathematics and a B.A. in economics, he received perfect scores on both the GRE and the GMAT, finishing each test with well over an hour to spare. He also passed two actuarial exams in a single testing period while working as an actuary at GEICO.

His books include The Equation for Excellence: How to Make Your Child Excel at Math, and Lies, Damned Lies, and College Admissions.


Testimonials

  • The Vohra method instills a true and lasting understanding of the material being covered. Allow your child or student plenty of time to complete the program, because Arvin and his staff will make sure that all gaps in knowledge are filled in!
    — Nancy M.
  • My son worked with Arvin over skype for several months and did very well on the SAT as promised! Very convenient and well priced.
    — Ellen S.
  • I strongly recommend Vohra method. We originally signed up in order to fill in academic "gaps" that were holding them back at school. Now we use the time to solidify their skills and move them into new material. This is not regular tutoring. This is a special method that is tailored to each student's needs and learning style. The time spent in class is very productive -- not only for building academic skills, but also for building confidence. It is a very positive environment and all of the teachers are committed to helping the students succeed.
    — Asha S.
  • I was referred to Arvin by a true friend. She cared to share her methods for helping her sons achieve their potential. Now my children benefit from Arvin and his methods. He coaches the students in good thought practice in addition to appropriate academic principles. We use a combination of online and face-to-face sessions. I highly recommend it!!
    — Raechell W.

  • This is not Kaplan or Princeton Review. This is an intensive one on one tutoring service, he just tutors everyone at the same time. He's literally the Bobby Fischer of teaching.

The man not only knows everything, but can teach it better than anyone. And his vision and life work speaks volumes about his character, which after a 5 minute chat with him, will inspire you.
    — Nima G.
  • Arvin helped me with the SAT, AP calculus, and recently with GMAT prep. Never has someone explained math concepts to me so clearly - I'm convinced there's nothing Arvin cannot teach. I recommend his tutoring services without reservation. Arvin has an amazing mind. Not only is he a phenomenal teacher, but he also is a great guy to spend an hour with. He makes learning challenging math easier, and I always looked forward to our sessions. If you want to put yourself in the best possible position to succeed, call in Arvin Vohra.
    — Tom B.
  • Arvin Vohra is by far the best tutor I've ever had. I don't think I could have survived AP calculus without him. When I first started AP calc, I had a D and felt so lost in the class. But with Arvin's help I managed to pull my grade up to a B 1st semester. Arvin explains the problems in a different way that made these incredibly hard problems almost look easy. He makes you view the problem in completely different way. And for my second semester of AP calculus I ended up with an A all thanks to Arvin.
    — Diana B.
  • Throughout high school, Arvin has helped me not only survive in the hardest classes (From AP level calc, physics, chem, and econ to SAT math, verbal and writing) but master the subject matter in a way I never thought possible. Cliche as it sounds, the difference between Arvin all other tutors I have been to is that Arvin teaches you how to fish whereas other tutors fish for you and hope you remember how to do it some day. Moreover, he is actually just one of the most interesting, multidimensional, and funniest people I have ever met.
    — Nal T.
  • Excellent tutor, teacher, and mentor. Helps with everything from the basics to the esoteric stuff. Very pragmatic and customized teaching style. Helped me achieve a near perfect SAT score with 200+ point improvement. Also taught me speed reading, and calculus. Best tutor I have worked with and exceptional individual. Highly recommended for ambitious students who want to do better and be more efficient learners.
    — Akshay R.
  • Even though my three daughters each learn very differently, Arvin Vohra helped all three achieve their academic goals in school. He was able to quickly identify their strengths and weaknesses and find ways to motivate them. He encouraged them to reach for more challenging classes and because of his tutoring they were able to succeed at a higher level than otherwise possible.
    — BB B.
  • Arvin was by far the best tutor I have ever worked with and could simplify problems so that someone who was math challenged like me could understand them. Arvin demonstrated key methods that made it easier for me to grasp difficult concepts. He quickly identified what my strengths and weaknesses were and tailored his teaching methods in a way that would enable me to learn the best. Arvin can help any student enhance their learning and improve their grades.
    — K.A. B.
  • Arvin is the best tutor I have worked with. He is extremely knowledgeable, focused, and efficient. During our first session, Arvin evaluated my strengths and weaknesses and pinpointed my unproductive habits. Since then, he has taught me how to develop the skills needed to fully grasp complex reading material. The great part about Arvin's comprehensive teaching style is that none of what I am learning will go to waste. Even after I complete the LSAT, I will continue to improve my reading abilities using AVE's advanced reading methods.
