About Us

Paras and Christian met at an Education Summit at Princeton University back in the Spring of 2013. During the summit they talked extensively about the inequality in education and both seemed passionate about finding ways to improve it. This was the start of STAFFS Prep, a mentorship and college preparation business aimed at providing affordable education services for all.

STAFFS Prep is on a mission to increase accessibility of college prep courses to all students regardless of circumstances or socioeconomic background. Each year over 3.5 million students graduate from high school, but unfortunately only a fraction of those students have access to private prep classes for the SAT/ACT exams, mostly because the prices of these classes are astronomical. That is why, on top of our elite services we provide at our tutoring center in Metuchen, we work directly with school districts to reduce the prices of our after school programs. Our hope is to reach a larger and more diverse number of students, while constantly working to improve the ways standardized test prep has been taught in the last 10 years.


Elite SAT/ACT Prep

Every year we see hundreds of students at our tutoring center in Metuchen. When they come to us to prepare for their SATs or ACTs we don't take that responsibility lightly. We work with every student to understand their goals and motivations, and will find ways to help that student reach his or her full potential.

After School SAT/ACT Prep Classes

We saw the unfair advantage students who have access to standardized test prep have over students who don't. When a company like Princeton Review or Kaplan charge astronomical prices for their prep classes, many parents and students simply can't afford them. At STAFFS Prep, we wanted to disrupt the system of charging crazy prices for prep classes. Our 14 hour prep course is only $450 and covers all sections of the SAT.

SAT & ACT Mock Tests

Throughout the school year, we offer numerous opportunities for all students to take a free practice SAT or ACT. Not only does this expose students to the test, but it also helps them understand where they stand.

College Planning and Essay Help

When a student signs up for our SAT or ACT prep course, we want to be their resource for college prep. We will go out of our way to make sure they have all the information they need to make the right decision about colleges before applying, and will then help them perfect their application during the application process itself. Our goal is not only to prepare students for the standardized tests, but also to make sure they feel comfortable with the entire college application experience.

Parent Nights

In conjunction with guidance departments at the local schools, we host parent/student nights to talk about the college testing and admissions process. We believe the more involved and educated the parents are about the process, the better it will be for the students.
Number of Scholarships Awarded


We don't want financial considerations to get in the way of a student's goals. That is why we award scholarships to students who want to take our courses but need some financial support.
Number of Students Helped


(and counting...)

Because one of our biggest goals is to make educational programs accessible to all, we pay close attention to how many students we are able to reach. We are constantly looking for ways to help more kids.
