About Us

Mr. Allen Koh founded Cardinal Education in 2006 as a tutoring company in the Bay Area that helped students deal with the most challenging academic situations they faced with. After several years, the business model changed to become an educational consulting company to provide more comprehensive services to families including private school admissions consulting and college counseling to help them navigate the ever-changing admissions landscape. The company became known because of its honesty, discretion, and effectiveness of admissions strategies which made it possible for many students to gain entry into the best colleges and universities. Our tutors and educational consultants are passionate about teaching and guiding students to help them unlock their full potential. They serve as mentors and confidantes that families can turn to for intimate advice on how to reach their goals. 

Now, nearly two decades into the industry, Cardinal Education has evolved from a local tutoring company to a globally recognized educational consulting firm. With the high percentage of successful college matriculation among our clients, we are now the most sought-after educational consultancy firm that families from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Los Altos, and other cities in the US and across the globe rely on. Cardinal Education’s reach has extended to Indonesia, Singapore, China, Oman, UAE, India, UK, Brazil, Russia, Nigeria, South Korea, Ghana, and Egypt,  and we are still growing.
