Private Tutoring remains our flagship service, and forms the basis for everything we do.
Our tutors are experts in learning, not just experts in their subject areas. Everyone knows there is a difference between being good at math and being able to teach math. There is a further difference between being able to teach math, and being able to teach math in the most effective, strategic way to give the ideal results. Vohra tutors are in that category.
Our tutoring program is friendly, accessible, and rigorous. We can help with pretty much any academic subject, standardized test, or college application. We work with students at all types of schools, including private, public, magnet, and boarding schools. Because we work primarily over skype, we can work with any student who has an internet connection.

We provide a unique combination of disciplined structure and flexible pacing that works well for many ADHD students. We can also draw on our experiences with other students and provide some guidance to those who are looking to wean themselves off of their medications.

+ Who does the teaching?
Arvin Vohra is the creator of the Vohra Method, and the founder of Arvin Vohra Education. His educational programs have transformed the lives of countless students, and he has inspired audiences nationwide through his speeches, books, and community outreach programs.
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.
Chelsey M. Snyder
Chelsey M. Snyder serves as Director of Operations and Head of Curriculum Development.
A perfectionist who comes from a family of teachers and military officers, Chelsey had the organized precision to refine Arvin’s initial breakthrough methodology into the surgically precise curriculum we use today. She is also an educational visionary in her own right, and has developed many of the most advanced and specialized parts of the Vohra Academy curriculum, including the IQ testing and spatial reasoning curricula and most of the advanced literature curricula.
Like Arvin, Chelsey started tutoring other students at a young age. But while Arvin started around age thirteen, Chelsey started around age seven, helping struggling students in her mother’s classroom. She later distinguished herself academically, with perfect and near-perfect grades in her school’s most advanced classes. She graduated high school in only three years, but still took more AP classes than Arvin did in four. In college, she continued to dominate academically, graduating with a GPA of 3.9 while also working 25-30 hours per week. By this time, she had seen what complete organization, total dedication, and absolute perfectionism could get from standard education. She had seen all that traditional education could offer. And she knew this: she could make something so much better.
She joined Vohra Method in 2014, recognizing the potential of the popular D.C. based tutoring service. As students suddenly started coming in, via Skype, from all over the country, she enhanced and developed the existing curriculum to make better use of the online space. Weekly improvements in technique and content soon became the norm.
Chelsey brings more than just military perfectionism to the Vohra Method. Her insights into educational psychology and cognitive development shape many of our methods and rules, allowing students to accomplish far more in less time.
