Welcome to A-Team Tutors
A-Team Tutors is a small tutoring agency that was founded in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with a mission to serve K-12, undergraduate, and graduate level students in areas ranging from mathematics and English to history and biology.
Since 2011, our community involvement has included hosting free SAT and ACT workshops at local libraries, running SAT and ACT classes in Wexford and downtown Pittsburgh, and amassing free resources for local students.
In the coming years, we hope to offer more free and discounted services as a part of our goal to make academic help available to as many people as possible.
The first step is filling out a student enrollment form. Responses will be provided with 24 hours.

About Our Tutors
Each tutor is trained to custom-tailor lesson plans to match students' abilities, skills, and curriculum. All tutors pass a competency test and strict background check before working with students. Intelligence alone is not enough to work with A-Team Tutors. We pride ourselves on patience, kindness, and receptiveness to our students.
Rates are currently set at $30 per hour for local Pittsburgh residents, with discounts offered for groups and when sessions take place online. Currently, all SAT/ACT prep is tutored by our founder, Sean Palermo.
To make an appointment, you can call, e-mail, or text for more details or to set up an appointment:
Sean D. Palermo, Founder and Director
Sean Palermo has 15 years of combined experience as a tutor and classroom teacher. He has designed and adopted curricula for grade levels K-12, led 10 SAT I and II courses, and currently tutors a majority of the subjects offered. As a former behavioral therapist and research analyst with publications in major scientific journals, Sean has experience working with ESL students as well as children with ADD, dyslexia, and behavioral issues. Mr. Palermo holds a Master's degree in Epidemiology and Public Health from Yale University and may be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For several years, Sean has helped my son and two daughters tackle their coursework in math, chemistry, biology, and government in addition to SAT and ACT prep. At the same time, Sean has worked with me to design epidemiological research and draft manuscripts for my doctoral dissertation at the University of Pittsburgh. Sean's tremendous support and dedication have proven invaluable to my family, and we couldn't recommend his services highly enough to anyone in need of a helping hand in academia.

For the past year, Mr. Palermo has tutored me and my two younger brothers in math, science, and English. With his help, I gained confidence in my SAT problem-solving skills and learned to express myself more clearly in personal essays. Mr. Palermo has taught me more about the admissions processes for college and medical school than I have learned from any other source, and my family and I are incredibly grateful for all his help.
