Online Private Tutoring          

Top Ten Reasons to Request a Lafayette Academy Tutor

  1. Our tutors are intimately familiar with the local curriculum (and many of the teachers) in Lamorinda and Danville, particularly at Acalanes, Campo, Miramonte, Monte Vista, and San Ramon Valley. We also see many students from other schools including De La Salle, Carondelet, College Park, Northgate, Las Lomas, Dougherty Valley, Cal High, and many of the private schools in the East Bay.
  2. Our tutors know the textbooks that your students are using and we target other school districts that use the same materials (e.g. Big Ideas Math): Milpitas, Palo Alto, Sacramento, Palos Verdes, Murrietta Valley, and beyond.
  3. We KNOW our tutors. They have worked in our centers and they’re ONLINE! Plus, they aced difficult placement tests.
  4. Our tutors don’t just “tutor.” If necessary, they coach or mentor your children.
  5. Our relaxed, fun approach is not just designed to attract students. It’s conducive to learning because a relaxed learner gets and retains concepts more easily than one who is stressed out.
  6. We have the largest number of patient and experienced tutors in each of our markets. This makes it easy for us to find the right tutor for your child at the right time for your schedule.
  7. Our tutors include young college graduates from top schools, current and retired teachers, local college students who recently achieved 4+ GPAs in high school, and many other people with interesting backgrounds and impressive credentials. We can always find a great match for your child.
  8. We tutor in virtually every subject, 6 days a week (Saturday – Thursday).
  9. We offer same day tutoring.
  10. You don’t need to sign a contract or pay a big upfront fee to come to The Academy.

Student Testimony

The (not very) Fine Print

  • A credit card is required for confirmation.

  • If you cancel 24-hours before your appointment is scheduled to begin (or by noon on Friday for weekend appointments), you will avoid late fees. Otherwise, we charge a $35 per hour late cancellation fee because we still pay our tutors. If you do not show up for an appointment and don’t call us in advance, we charge the full amount.

  • There are no contracts or minimum commitments required for our tutoring services, and each 60 minute session will include 55-60 minutes of instruction.
