What Is The Classroom Door?



TheClassroomDoor.com (TCD) is a comprehensive global educational platform and tutoring marketplace that provides access to world-class tutors, certified teachers and advisors as well as proprietary college counseling content is set to launch today. Founded by Nikki Geula, a pioneer in the college consulting and tutoring industry, The Classroom Door’s (TCD) mission is to democratize the elite tutoring and college application process and make expertise available to all regardless of economic status. Leveraging an elite group of over 1,500 vetted, world class tutors from leading universities including Harvard, Yale, MIT, Stanford, Princeton, and Oxford, TCD offers expert tutoring and college advising to students starting at $15 an hour.

TCD was established to fill a void for affordable, quality tutoring, transparent college counseling, and customized educational consulting. Geula spent over 25 years operating and building Arete Educational Consulting into one of the world’s premier college advising and tutoring companies.

“The pandemic-caused disruption in education is devastating, and I am committed to mitigating the academic impact on students of all ages and all socio-economic groups,” Geula says. “I established TCD to fill a void for affordable, quality tutoring, transparent college counseling, and customized content and educational consulting. My commitment is to make expertise, typically reserved for just privileged students, available to all. This platform is for ALL students who want quality tutoring and counseling at prices that work for them.” For every 100 hours of tutoring booked, TCD’s scholarship program will provide an hour free to an underserved student.

TCD, an entirely woman-owned company, benefits from both Geula’s leadership, and that of her director of educational content, Dan Scolnic, a Hubble and KICP Fellow at The Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at The University of Chicago and a professor of astrophysics at Duke University.

My tutor Stephanie was unbelievably fantastic! She provided resources and book links for me to use with my children aged 10 and 14. As a parent, this type of support is unparalleled and I am lucky to have found Stephanie on The Classroom Door!
