Our Story

We are personally invested in your success.

The early years

AJ Tutoring is owned and operated by Aaron Andrikopoulos and Joe Niederman. Friends since first-grade at Walter Hays Elementary in Palo Alto, Aaron and Joe now operate the premier test preparation and academic tutoring group in the Bay Area.


Aaron and Joe start tutoring

Fresh out of college and eager to transform education, Aaron and Joe began working as private SAT tutors. Over the next two years, they drove from home to home, worked with hundreds of students, and generated a loyal following.

"Since founding AJ Tutoring, our purpose has been to create a group of professional, charismatic, and energetic educators who share our passion for teaching."

AJ Tutoring’s founding

Realizing that their time was limited, and frustrated by their inability to help all the students who needed their support, Aaron and Joe founded AJ Tutoring in 2005.


AJ Tutoring today

AJ Tutoring’s current team members not only achieve test prep results that exceed those of Aaron and Joe, but also tutor students in almost all academic subjects. The AJ Tutoring team provides a level of educational depth that no one individual could provide.

"The tutoring here vastly improved my overall performance on the SAT's, and provided me with helpful strategies and shortcuts to make the entire testing process much simpler."
