Varsity Tutors, the live learning company that provides access
to more than 30,000 experts on its platform, announced today that it is significantly expanding its sales and
customer support team and footprint in the Phoenix area. Working on behalf of Varsity Tutors, the Phoenix
office of JLL has completed a new lease that will relocate the rapidly growing company from its current
Scottsdale location to 40,000 square feet within Rio2100 in Tempe. The new location will serve as a national
sales and customer support center.
Varsity Tutors connects students to experts for online, mobile, and instant instruction via its award-winning
digital platform, as well as to in-person experts nationally. Named the 15th most innovative company in
America by Entrepreneur, Varsity Tutors expanded into Arizona in September 2016.
After opening a sales office in Scottsdale with 25 employees, the company has since hired 50 additional team
members. Varsity Tutors expects to reach 100+ employees in the Phoenix area by the close of 2017, with even
more significant employee growth planned in 2018. Its new team members will fill open roles in sales,
customer care, and operations. A list of positions that are currently available can be found at
JLL Executive Vice President Ryan Bartos and Associate Kyle Seeger represented Varsity Tutors in the lease
transaction. JLL’s Project and Development Services team will direct all tenant improvements.
“The company’s new national sales office and customer support center will give them the right space, in the
right location, with the right amenities to continue to attract and grow with the area’s best employees,” Bartos
said. “The new office will feature highly functional floor plans and 18-foot ceilings, allowing for a dynamic
space that reflects the company’s culture of collaboration and continuous learning.”
Founded in 2007, Varsity Tutors’ teams also operate from offices in St. Louis, MO, Seattle, WA, and Victoria,
Canada. Its live learning platform connects students and professionals with personalized instruction in more
than 1,000 subjects and tests, and clients have accessed more than two million hours of live, one-on-one
instruction to date. After shifting away from a solely offline model, the company continues to redefine tutoring
and expertise transfer. In 2015, it raised $50M in funding from Technology Crossover Ventures, Adam Levine
“We continue to invest in Phoenix given the amount of sales talent and the highly educated workforce,” said
Chuck Cohn, Founder and CEO of Varsity Tutors. “We’ve built a tremendous team in our Phoenix office, and
it will be exciting to see that culture evolve as we grow our presence here.”
Located within the 52-acre mixed-use Rio2100 project, Varsity Tutors employees will be minutes from the
Loop 101 and Loop 202 freeways, downtown Tempe/Tempe Town Lake, Phoenix International Airport, and
the main campus of Arizona State University. Rio2100 is also within walking distance of two business hotels
and the one million square feet of retail, restaurants, and entertainment at Tempe Marketplace.
