Varsity Tutors Company Profile

Varsity Tutors is a national tutoring company with origins in the entrepreneurship program of Washington University in St. Louis, one of the top such programs in the country. CEO Chuck Cohn launched the company while an undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis and then later bootstrapped the company while working as a venture capitalist at Ascension Health Ventures. When his tutoring company grew to the point where his time and not capital became the primary constraint to the growth, Chuck quit his venture capital job to focus on scaling Varsity Tutors full-time. Since then, the company has grown significantly to 1,200 tutors and over 60 employees. The company hopes to add 800 more tutoring positions this coming school year.
