Our Story

Head Tutor and Founder Shay Garrison

Shay Skobeleva

Founder, Head Instructor

Shay comes from a family of professors, teachers, and educational consultants. She grew up surrounded by discussions and debates regarding education philosophy and the most innovative and effective teaching methods.

Shay pursued a background in both the liberal arts and the natural sciences, graduating with a degree in Molecular Genetics from the University of Rochester. She currently does admissions interviews for Rochester, for both undergraduate and BS/MD programs. In 2009, after earning admission to medical school, she decided to devote herself to building her vision for education instead: Altiora. 

Shay is committed to staying active in all of Altiora’s operations, and she personally takes on students each year. Above all, she wants to make sure that Altiora retains the personal touch that has been the cornerstone of its success, and she is always available to address any questions and special requests.

Let's Get Started.

Altiora has the tools to give your student every advantage in today's competitive landscape.

Our results speak volumes- all of Altiora's test prep clients have recommended us to their friends.
