    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020.

    Our son started in a new high school, 100% remote, and was really struggling with Latin and Physics. I found Themba Tudors online and had an initial call with Craig, who was very knowledgeable, responsive, and found 2 amazing tutors for … More us. Both the Latin and the physics tutors were fantastic, connected with my son really well and helped him go from 'failing' grade to 'honors'! I will for sure continue using (and recommending!)

  • Avatar Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    As an adult student diagnosed with a learning disability during grad school, I knew I needed help dealing with my Master's program's demanding workload. I was seriously considering dropping out when I was referred to Themba Tutors. … More I was paired up with a wonderful tutor, Julie, who was a total lifesaver. I learned many techniques that I can utilize in the future as I embark on the next phase of my career.
    I can wholeheartedly say after working with Themba for two years that I would not have finished my program without this organization. And I am so thankful I selected them.

    We were introduced to a wonderful tutor: Mcedwyn. He and our son, a freshman in college, worked well together. As a result, our son’s grades significantly improved. The tutor taught our son subject content and various methods to effectively … More study for quizzes and exams. Our son was also taught time management and organization. My son’s experience with the tutor made the first year of college a less intimidating experience.
  • Avatar Jude Eugene ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    We have been with our tutor, Cailin Schiller, for two years, from 5th - 7th grade. She started as an executive functioning tutor with my daughter. From the start, she demonstrated a depth of expertise and a selective use of techniques skillfully … More adapted to my daughter’s ADHD and Math disability. Cailin made Math accessible and understandable to her in a way that even her teachers had not been able to do. She differentiated reading, writing and math tasks and assignments to tailor them to my daughter’s unique learning differences. Not only did it have an effect on her grades and her work efficiency, but she finally could do her work with less anxiety. Even my daughter’s teachers used Cailin’s guidance to modify their work with her. But most importantly, she became my daughter’s favorite resource. I can’t say how invaluable Cailin has been to my daughter’s progress and well-being. I’d recommend her a million times over. She is a gem.

    We were very lucky to have found Edwouine Swift, my son's therapist through Themba Tutors. Thomas is 12 years old, and it is extremely difficult to get him to write. Edwouine just works her magic with him, he adores her and is so … More eager to follow her guidance. I have no doubt she will be a positive driving force in his academic future.


Expert Princeton Admissions Consultant

Princeton admissions consultant

Navigating the often convoluted and high-pressure process of gaining admission into a prestigious institution like Princeton University can be challenging. This is where a Princeton Admissions Consultant comes into play! They can be your beacon of hope amid the tangle of application forms, entrance essays, and references.

How Hard Is It To Get Into Princeton?

Securing admission to Princeton University is an exceedingly challenging endeavor. In the previous year, out of the 38,019 applicants, merely 2,167 were extended acceptance offers, yielding a remarkably low acceptance rate of 5.7%. Successful applicants to Princeton typically exhibit exceptional academic prowess, as evidenced by an impressive 3.95 GPA among those admitted for the 2022-2023 academic year.

What GPA Is Required for Princeton?

When applying to Princeton University, applicants should aim for a GPA of 3.8 to 4.0 to present themselves as strong candidates. While Princeton sets no official GPA requirements, it is noteworthy that most applicants, typically around 90%, possess an unweighted GPA of at least 3.75. If your GPA falls below this threshold, it is advisable to compensate by achieving higher scores on the SAT or ACT, actively participating in outstanding extracurricular activities, and crafting an exceptional personal statement.

Princeton University emphasizes an unweighted GPA as one of its admission criteria. In fact, the Common Data Set for Princeton University for the 2021-2022 academic year categorizes academic GPA as “very important.” The median unweighted GPA for admitted students at Princeton University stands at an impressive 3.95. This underscores the likelihood that competitive candidates will have completed advanced coursework such as AP and IB classes. If your school employs a weighted GPA scale or any grading system other than the standard 4.0 scale, Princeton recommends recalculating your GPA to provide a more accurate reflection of your academic performance.
