Apt tutoring to seek apt Wellesley pupils in need of test prep, college counseling

1535744_777256685621902_1423265511_nApt Tutoring, Test Prep & College Counseling is just about set to sign a lease for a Wellesley location, as it branches out beyond its main Hingham office.

The 8-year-old business, owned by Lisa Gelman who has impressive academic chops of her own (B.A. from Smith College and a M.A. and Ph.D. in political science from the University of Pennsylvania) will offer tutoring, test prep, and admissions counseling. Gelman, a Certified Educational Planner, says opening up a Wellesley location makes sense since “we already have Wellesley students who come to our Hingham location and opening an office in Wellesley will make it easier for them.” The business anticipates a Spring 2016 opening.

Wellesley and surrounding communities are hot markets for tutoring and test prep businesses, including Sexton Test Prep & Tutoring, Prepped & PolishedChyten, and Axiom Learning.
