Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2013
Teluja assists ArborBridge’s current Director of Instruction,Kate Ballard-Rosa, as they refine ArborBridge’s proprietary curriculum. Teluja will also manage ArborBridge’s tutor team, ensuring that each tutor is meeting and exceeding ArborBridge’s standards. Teluja will ensure that ArborBridge continues to deliver elite instruction as the company rapidly grows.
“Families and schools work with ArborBridge because they want access to the world’s best test preparation,” said ArborBridge co-founder Tim Urban. “We meet that expectation by hiring brilliant, dedicated educators, and we have found exactly that in Owen.”
Teluja has experience tutoring in a variety of academic areas, but over the past two years he has specialized in the SAT, ACT, and GRE. Prior to joining ArborBridge, Teluja was tutor for The Princeton Review’s office in Las Vegas and a manager at its Los Angeles office, where he managed and implemented one-on-one tutorials. Owen earned a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, where he majored in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. Among the three SAT sections and three SAT Subject Tests that Owen took in high school, he earned perfect 800’s on all but one.
The addition of Teluja comes at the end of a tremendous year for ArborBridge and corresponds with a steady, decade-long increase in the number of international students taking the SAT or ACT – a trend that shows no sign of stopping. To-date, ArborBridge has worked with students in 20 countries on all six continents.
“There’s nothing like helping a student rise to the challenge of the ACT or SAT,” said Tuleja. “While the tests are the same everywhere, I’m excited by the chance to help demystify it for the most diverse group of students in the world.”
Teluja is charged with overseeing ArborBridge’s corps of tutors and with developing and refining ArborBridge’s curriculum. ArborBridge has revolutionized test preparation not merely by providing live, online tutoring but also by re-imagining SAT and ACT prep curricula. ArborBridge takes full advantage of online technologies while also ensuring that every student’s course of study is customized according to his or her exact needs. The result: ArborBridge helps students achieve maximum gains in minimal tutoring time.
“Because we work with students who come from vast and varied secondary curricula, we not only had to establish the most detailed diagnostic and evaluation procedure, but also had to transform the teaching methods,” said ArborBridge’s Director of Instruction, Kate Ballard-Rosa. “Every student comes to us with a different set of weaknesses and a different learning style. We take both into account when developing each student’s unique program.”
ArborBridge has helped hundreds of students from 20 different countries maximize their potential score on the SAT and ACT. Their students have seen SAT point increases exceeding 600 points and gained admission to top colleges like Stanford, Cal Tech, NYU, Columbia, Penn, and Georgetown.
ArborBridge tutoring is live, one-on-one, and delivered online by elite American tutors using ArborBridge's proprietary SAT/ACT curriculum, specifically designed for online tutoring. ArborBridge was founded in 2011 by Tim Urban and Andrew Finn, who previously founded Launch Education Group, a premier in-person tutoring firm with offices in Los Angeles and Manhattan.
