Founder of Dewey Smart College Admissions Counseling pREP
Michael Gao
Founder & CEO

Our Founder Michael Gao scored a 36 ACT and a 1550 SAT and understood the value of providing near-peer mentorship to students hoping to learn what it takes to enter top universities. He started Dewey Smart in his Columbia University dorm room, and since then, our team has grown to help students across the United States achieve their goals!  

Our Team of 50 Ivy League Tutors and College Counselors are valedictorians, research scientists, entrepreneurs, wealth managers, AP Scholars, National Merit Scholars, and all-around impressive members of their communities who enjoy working with students of all backgrounds.

Dewey Smart was born out of a sincere desire to make sure every student gets the support needed to succeed.

Emerson Blais
Director of Admissions

Before Dewey Smart, I spent 16 years helping students from all across the world get into top universities. At Dewey Smart, I saw the opportunity to contribute to an impactful mentorship culture that goes beyond traditional tutoring and college counseling. As the Director of Admissions, I am eager to help shape the future of high-achieving students by providing expert guidance and connecting them with mentors who have walked the halls of prestigious institutions.
