Shadow Classes® are our weekly, small-group tutoring sessions that shadow specific subjects at Acalanes, Campo, Las Lomas, Miramonte, Monte Vista, and San Ramon Valley. School- and subject-specific classes meet in our Danville, Lafayette, and Moraga locations to reinforce concepts, prepare for upcoming tests, and preview upcoming material. Each class is taught by one of our expert, experienced tutors, many of whom are intimately familiar with each school’s curriculum.
The last time we surveyed our Shadow Class students, 91% said that their grades were one or two letters higher thanks to our classes!
More About Shadow Classes®
- Shadow Classes vary week to week depending on what’s going on in class. When students have an upcoming test, we’ll focus on test preparation and strategy. When students are studying a tough chapter, we’ll explain key topics, answer questions, and offer hands-on practice or discussion. If a challenging topic is on the horizon, we’ll preview the material.
Our gifted instructors couple the local curriculum with their deep subject knowledge and tutoring experience to help students understand complicated topics. Instructors include graduates and current students from UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UCLA, St. Mary’s, and other top schools, with degrees such as aerospace engineering, British History, philosophy, pre-med, applied mathematics, chemical biology, political science, and more.
We offer multiple class times each week for high-demand subjects and often add classes for small groups of students who need a different subject or can’t make any of the existing time slots.
Our instructors monitor student progress and mentor them as needed. We have helped many students in Lamorinda and Danville make significant process while having fun learning.
