how we are different
Our focus is to serve the community in which we are based. Having grown up in Los Angeles and worked with local schools for the past 10 years, we’ve developed close relationships with LA schools, teachers, counselors, admissions teams, and staff … from security guards to presidents to PTAs. If you go to school in LA or want to go to school in LA – we can take care of you like nobody else. We believe in working locally, building community, and prioritizing long term relationships.
You will get a hand-picked tutor who often has a decade or more of teaching experience and an advanced degree in the specific area for which your child needs help. On top of that, we go to great lengths to train our tutors with a coaching methodology that allows them to mentor their student. Our tutoring and mentoring process enhances students’ self-knowledge, increases their self-confidence, and empowers them to achieve their goals.
We integrate cutting-edge educational technology to empower and engage students. We integrate video conferencing when applicable, use the latest in educational software, apps, and websites, and even develop our own proprietary grading software to comprehensively gauge student progress. We are constantly updating best practices in ed-tech, and we are committed to giving students a competitive edge for their whole academic career.
“I have been preparing for standardized tests with LA Tutors for the past four years. I started with the ISEE test after I got concerned with average marks in the practice tests. My father arranged two specialized tutors with Arash, which got me the best preparation for English and Math. That allowed me to obtain test scores in the 8 and 9 stanines—90th percentiles—which helped me get admitted into a quality high school. I couldn’t wait to work again with them for my PSAT and SAT. That’s when Danny entered the picture. With Danny’s help in the PSAT, I qualified for the National Merit Scholarship. And then he helped me raise my score yet again to 1,540 on the SAT! Thanks LA Tutors in helping me expand my college options!”Bruno S.Junior at New Roads
“When our son Max arrived in Los Angeles on January 1st fresh from 3 years at a school following a very different curriculum in South Africa, he had less than 2 weeks to prepare for his ISEE exams. We contacted LA Tutors and Arash responded immediately. Within one day Max was engaged in an intense tutoring course with the amazing Angela. Given the lack of time and Max’s diagnostics, Arash and Angela came up with a customized tutoring plan focusing on math, quantitative reasoning and algebra. Max responded to Angela and the challenge and they crammed 2 years of schooling into 20 hours! Miraculously, when the day came, Max’s practice math and quant scores increased from 2/3’s to 7’s in his actual ISEE test and he scored in the 87% percentile on his reading comprehension (up from 67%). A truly stellar turnaround that would have been impossible without the dedication and skill of LA Tutors. We are still not quite sure how this was possible and we cannot thank them enough for their coaching and for imbuing Max with the confidence and strategies to perform on the day and maximize his new found knowledge. We recommend Arash and LA Tutors to anyone looking to improve their childrens ISEE performance and potential however short the preparation period.”Alastair B.Father of Max, 6th grader at TREE Academy
“We were so pleased with our experience with LA Tutors. Kiera worked with Sophia for 2 months to prepare for the Upper Level ISEE and raised her scores significantly from her initial assessment test. They offered an extremely comprehensive and personalized program, identifying Kiera’s weaknesses, and working with her to develop and strengthen her skills. Kiera was able to take several full length, scored practice tests throughout the process, creating an important comfort level with the exam AND allowing Sophia to zero in on exactly where she was still struggling. Sophia is a remarkably patient, kind and inspiring tutor. It’s no small feat to keep a teenager engaged in an intense preparation process for such a long stretch; and Sophia handled it brilliantly. We were thrilled with Kiera’s final test results. But more than that – we feel that she really learned in her time with Sophia – growing as a student in ways that will benefit her forever.”Kiera M.8th grader at The Buckley School
“LA Tutors has been providing academic support and SAT test prep to both myself and my sister for the past 4 years. My older sister was accepted to UCSB (thanks for our amazing SAT tutor) and I am preparing to take the SAT this year and also getting assistance with my Pre-Calculus class. LA Tutors has been invaluable when it comes to my academic progress. I can’t be happier about the quality of their services, from our amazing tutors to the friendly office staff that is there to assist with any concerns. Thanks for all your help! ”Zara J. Junior at Campbell Hall
“I was never a good student. Never taking my scholastic achievement seriously I sat in the back of every class both physically and metaphorically. It was only at the beginning of my senior year at Beverly High that I began taking my grades and my life seriously. With the SAT around the corner and college apps not far behind I decided to illicit the help of LA Tutors. While I was too late to change my fate in high school I went into Santa Monica College inspired, ready to take on the challenge. With the help of LA Tutors I was able to actualize my potential; finally able to overcome the difficulties I had with math and science the once C average student was able to achieve a 4.0 GPA and admission to UCLA. ”David D.Sophomore at Santa Monica College
