Who we are
TA is the passion project of a constellation of teachers, researchers, and academics in Tokyo, Japan. Since 2012, we’ve evolved from a few university friends tutoring at a tiny restaurant in Tokyo into an organization of academic, test prep, and college admissions experts, helping students to realize and reach their potential and capture the opportunities of the future. We believe in a world where individuals have the capability to learn anything, the confidence to tackle any challenge, and the community support to reach success.
Our mission is to guide and teach anyone with the desire to learn while establishing and maintaining world-class standards for education and mentorship. We hope that our team not only teaches students but inspires them to push themselves outside of their comfort zone and beyond their limits, and nothing is more exciting to us than seeing our students achieve their goals!
We are incredibly proud of our people. Our community comes from elite and varied backgrounds: the top universities in the world, the best corporate research labs and tech companies in Japan, global financial institutions, and international management consulting firms. We are a truly international and English-speaking working and learning environment, with colleagues from every continent (but Antarctica). We recruit exceptional individuals, as we are building an exceptional community.
All Tokyo Academic colleagues possess outstanding backgrounds, intellectual curiosity, and, above all, a passion for service. We are also constantly improving our teaching methods, our curriculum, our organization, and our platform to deliver the highest degree of service and impact for our students.
