Orient is a word deriving from Latin, meaning the place that the sun rises, the East. Occident is another word deriving from Latin meaning the place the sun sets, the West. Meridies in Latin means the noonday sun, and it is the Latin root from which derives the English word Meridian. Here at Meridian tutors we position ourselves at the intersection of East and West, at the meeting point where cultures, in the form of languages, come into contact. It is our mission to provide high-quality tutoring services to students across the globe in order to facilitate the beneficial exchange of cultures, ideas, and heritages between East and West.
