USACO Tutor was founded to even out the playing field of USACO Education. The first student I ever taught was Evan Z, and we’ve done great things together — he’s already promoted to Gold in just 2 months. I taught him at very modest rates compared to what I charge now for my personal students. Looking back at our mission when USACO Tutor first launched, there is a schism with regards to the mission and how we currently run. There are parents who do not qualify for the Free Lunch Program, yet can not access 1:1 tutoring due to the prices that the majority of people charge.
Effective Monday, February 8: USACO Tutor will offer private 1:1 classes at the price points detailed on the Tuition Page. I have vetted the instructors who will be teaching these classes, and you will be able to book a time that works best for you. We’ll aim to keep the same instructor, if you enjoy the class. Not only are you receiving a great value from USACO Tutoring, but you will also be supporting the instructors who are paid very competitive rates to teach here.
To prospective students: I would recommend going with our team of tutors that I work with on a regular basis. They’re great. Of course, if you would still like to work with David Yang, send us a message and we’ll be in touch.
To current students: your current rate will not change with me. I still love teaching each one of you, and seeing you grow from knowing almost nothing about graphs to solving Gold problems is a truly satisfying experience.
With regards to our self-paced and group classes, we have currently halted all purchases of self-paced and group classes. If you have a group in mind that you would like to work with, contact us and we’ll work with you to find a plan.
