Signet Education is a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based college consulting firm. They offer services in their Cambridge office as well as work online with their different clients. It was started by two graduates of Harvard College, Andrew Magliozzi and Jay Bacrania, in 2005. They first started their business as a tutoring service, but then expanded into the college admissions sector. Initially, their motto was to not only simply help students finish their homework but to commit to the overall growth and development of students.
Signet Education offers a wide range of educational services, including test prep, subject tutoring, academic coaching, and college admissions consulting. It specifically offers college admissions consulting services for business school admissions, medical school admissions, graduate admissions, law school admissions, transfer admissions, and other programs.

To do this, Signet has amassed a talented team of predominantly Ivy League graduates to provide academic coaching services, a team equivalent in size to their college consulting team.
