Launch Education Group, founded in 2007 by Andrew Finn and Tim Urban, is a leading provider of in-home academic tutoring and secondary school entrance exam preparation to students in Los Angeles and New York City.

ArborBridge was established in 2011 as an independent off-shoot of Launch Education Group to focus on live, one-to-one, online SAT and ACT test preparation. ArborBridge quickly established itself as an international leader, supporting families across the United States and 30 different countries.

“We are committed to providing the best test prep and tutoring in the world. I know that sounds grandiose – but that is our ambition, and we will accept nothing less,” said Finn. “If a family is going to make a significant investment in test prep or tutoring, we want to provide educational impact and personalized service that is truly exceptional.”

As a result of the merger, Launch Education Group’s talented team of directors and tutors is now fully subsumed under ArborBridge. “In building these two successful companies, we have very meticulously hired the smartest and most passionate people in test prep and tutoring,” said Finn. “By combining the resources and complementary strengths of these two companies, we are pushing the limits of what is possible in the world of test prep and tutoring.”

The new ArborBridge will offer a comprehensive range of in-person and online educational services, combining personalized service with technological savvy and a scientifically-driven approach to test prep and tutoring. The merger will further accelerate development of ArborBridge’s proprietary programs and curricula for the company’s major areas of instruction: SAT, ACT, ISEE, and Essential Skills Programs for elementary-aged students. The majority of the new ArborBridge’s tutoring will take place live, one-to-one, and online. However, in-home sessions will be available where the company has tutors on the ground – primarily Los Angeles and New York City.

Andrew Finn and Tim Urban will both remain Managing Directors of ArborBridge. Tim Benson, former Launch Education Group Senior Director, will join Kate Ballard-Rosa as Senior Directors of the new ArborBridge.
