About Parliament Tutors
Parliament Tutors is a national private tutoring and test prep company founded by David Greenberg in 2009. When Greenberg jumped into a saturated tutoring market four years ago, he was determined to differentiate his company. He took advantage of his online tutoring platform to recruit and train tutors, but sent them directly to students’ homes for in-person lessons.Today, Parliament Tutors offers private tutoring and test preparation in over 100 cities across the United States. Course offerings feature academic subject tutoring, standardized test preparation, language learning and professional certification prep. Throughout the years, Parliament Tutors has been featured in CNNmoney, Forbes, Skype, FOX, Mashable, Reuters and more.
Founded in 1995 as a non-profit organization, Take Stock in Children helps low-income students escape the cycle of poverty through education. They do this by providing scholarships and mentors to over 400 students in Broward County. Their program starts at the middle-school level, continues through high school and helps with the transition to college. One of their main goals is to reduce the number of high school dropouts, so students can continue to college and eventually, the workforce.
