About Us

Welcome to Rye Genius

Rye Genius was founded by two parents of Rye High School students who wanted to ensure affordable access to the highest quality teachers and tutors from across the country for students in Rye. We’ve been working with families in Rye and the surrounding communities for nearly a decade, and our continued goal is to learn about the educational needs of each of our students and match them with a qualified and experienced instructor who compliments their learning style and personality.

Rye Genius’s philosophy is that students learn best when they are challenged and given the resources they need by a teacher who takes the time to get to know them personally.

The Rye Genius Mission

Our mission is to provide personalized and engaging instruction to Rye students anytime, anywhere.

At Rye Genius, we believe that there is always room for improvement and growth. We based all our programming on our guiding principles of accessibility, engagement, and personalized learning. We approach each of our students with guided practice that reinforces fundamental concepts and associated skills through stimulating and interactive instruction. We are committed to serving our students’ individual needs through quality instruction, using up-to-date technology and media to deliver results.
