Private Tutoring With Lafayette Academy

Now Entirely Online!

Many of the most successful people in the world had tutors from an early age. Alexander the Great was 13 when he was assigned the greatest mind of that time, Aristotle. By the time Alexander was 32, he ruled an entire empire.

Tutoring gradually opens a child’s mind to great and noble goals, to seeing beyond here and now and to thinking in a complete range of thoughts and emotions. Tutoring also helps students ace their tests! Tutoring takes time, patience and a dedicated team.

Our tutoring teams are well versed in the local curriculum as well as testing methods to ensure that your children are in the best possible hands as they go through their challenging academic journeys. We also utilize a variety of resources including curriculum worksheets and videos that our tutors have compiled based on their extensive experiences with local students.  We know the problems that students typically encounter in most classes, and we’re ready for them!

Our Lafayette tutors have collectively helped thousands of students at Miramonte, Campolindo, Las Lomas, and Acalanes High Schools and are intimately familiar with the nuances of most teachers.

At Lafayette Academy, we believe that the best way to make learning effective for our young scholars is to make it engaging and relevant. Our tutors use flexible approaches based on each child’s learning style to ensure a more custom and effective learning experience.

We also give you the flexibility to choose a schedule that works best for you and your child.  There are many tutors to choose from, which means there will always be someone available to work with your child.

Shadow Classes

Shadow Classes® are weekly, small-group tutoring sessions that shadow various subjects. Subject-specific classes  meet online and are led by one of our expert tutors, most of whom are intimately familiar with each school’s curriculum.  Here are some of the features that make our Shadow Classes special:


Our instructors collaborate with each other to ensure that we’re teaching “best of breed” strategies in each class.


We sometimes add FREE Shadow Classes if there’s an upcoming test that doesn’t coincide with one of our existing class times.


Our instructors explain the difficult concepts that the Shadow Class students need help with.


We preview upcoming material when our instructors realize that students may need a head start.


Lafayette Academy always personalizes instruction.


All Shadow Classes are online

Shadow Classes are $196/month ($49/week per class). The fee is only $40/week if you pre-pay for the semester.

The last time we surveyed our Shadow Class students, 91% said that their grades were one or two letters higher thanks to our classes!
