St. Louis, MO, June 24, 2013 – Varsity Tutors, the leading private, in-home tutoring service with
25 metropolitan locations, is expanding its operations to another major metro area. As of June
2013, the company has started offering private tutoring services in the San Francisco Bay Area
and is seeking 100 talented tutors for part-time roles.

The academic tutoring and test prep provider operates in many large markets including Los
Angeles, Chicago, New York, Houston, and Atlanta. As college admissions has become increasingly
competitive, the demand for top tutoring and test prep services, particularly for ACT tutoring,
has increased. Varsity Tutors is responding to this demand by further expanding its geographic
footprint. In addition to San Francisco, other expansion plans are in the works for the summer of
2013.

The new San Francisco tutoring location will cover the entire greater metropolitan area,
including San Jose and Oakland. Expanding to the Bay Area had been on the company’s roadmap
for several years as it grew into one of the largest private tutoring companies from its
headquarters in St. Louis, Mo. Founder and CEO Chuck Cohn said he expects the Bay Area market
to be one of Varsity Tutors’ largest centers of operation with 18 months.

“San Francisco was one of the last major U.S. cities left for us to enter. We are launching in three
other major metro areas this summer, but my expectation is that San Francisco will be the largest
of those markets for us,” says Cohn. “Expansion into locations where we can match the best tutors
with students is key to our growth. We believe that we can offer a higher quality service at a lower
cost than the existing tutoring companies in the San Francisco market.”

Varsity Tutors was started in 2007 by Cohn while an undergraduate at Washington University in
St. Louis. The small, college-based business quickly grew into a market leader with 2,000 tutors
and 80 employees nationwide. The company’s tutors specialize in a wide selection of subjects
including all academic areas of PreK-12, college, and graduate school courses, as well as test prep
for entrance exams (SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT). Tutors are chosen not just based on
grades and test scores, but also on how effectively they are able to communicate challenging
material.

Varsity Tutors’ San Francisco operations is open for business and taking inquiries.
