Private Teachers for 1:1 Education

We live in a time of extreme possibility in education. Never have there been so many options for students to step out of traditional school.

But what’s missing in this heady mix of online courses, remote cohorts, and gamified learning, is the deep human connection between student and teacher that sparks learning.

Everything we do starts with teachers. Our 1:1 model creates an environment that brings this to the fore, where a student can interact with their teacher in a way that builds an uncommon rapport and strong mentorship bond.

“One-on-one learning has honestly been life changing. I have never felt this good about school.”

Who are Cicero Teachers?

Cicero teachers come from private and public schools. Many are masters level. And all have deep experience working 1:1 with students. From Breadloaf graduates who excel at text analysis and nurturing great writers, to “new math” thinkers with experience teaching AP level, the teachers of Cicero represent the best of their profession.

“There is power in a great teacher, and it lies in how they bring out the power of their student. We aren't filling students with knowledge, we're guiding them to bring out their strengths and reach their full potential.”
