Grow Your Unique Success

Hilltop Academy

We know that learning is easier when you have an excellent teacher.  That’s why most of our educators have achieved an advanced degree in their field.  Our instructors are passionate about the subjects they teach and bring this enthusiasm into their tutoring sessions and classes.

Whether you’re looking for a tutor, standardized test preparation, or enrichment in an academic subject, we can help.  All of our courses are personalized for your needs to make sure you leave with relevant skills.


Dennis and his staff are absolutely the best in their field.  They educate in the truest sense of the word.  My daughter has benefited from years of tutoring.  Her self-confidence, her understanding of the subject matter, and her communication skills have all been bolstered immeasurably.  Planning on sending all my kids to their outstanding SAT prep courses.


I attended Hilltop Academy for the majority of my high school career.  Not only did the teachers at Hilltop help me increase my standardized test scores, but they helped me with so much more: career path guidance, college information, and moral support throughout the way.

Hilltop is an opportunity you do not want to miss.


Dennis was there with me cramming applications at the last minute while balancing school work, staying up until 4 AM to craft the perfect application essays, etc.

At the end, everything worked out.  I have obtained acceptances from Columbia, Dartmouth, Duke, Princeton, Vanderbilt, WashU, Carnegie Mellon, Williams, UNC and UVA–some of the finest universities in the nation. I’d like to use this moment to thank Hilltop and Dennis Im for helping me throughout the process and giving me advice on my decisions. Dennis, you were an amazing friend and mentor!
