Spider Web Education


For millennia, tutors have been a linchpin for the finest education by providing individualized instruction. Socrates tutored Plato; Plato tutored Aristotle; Aristotle tutored Alexander the Great: and thus the intellectual foundations of western civilization were laid and the largest empire the world had ever seen was created. Centuries later and across the Atlantic Ocean, the annals of American intellectual and political history were defined by men and women, including Thomas Jefferson and Helen Keller, for whom a tutor was a foundational educational influence.

Spider Web Education Founder Dan Hughes met weekly for tutorial sessions with a tenured Harvard professor during his junior and senior years at Harvard College, first to develop field-specific knowledge and later for individualized guidance on his senior thesis. Via this tutorial process, new intellectual vistas unfolded.  

Tutoring may be enormously beneficial for nearly any student. Being tutored for a tough standardized test or a thorny academic area can make all of the difference, transforming a low-performing, “B-” student into a top performer – or an “A” student into an even more extraordinary scholar.
