A 10-HOUR TUTORING COURSE!

SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION

We at LA Tutors recognize the importance of preparing properly for standardized tests. Tests like the SAT and ACT are used by admissions committees at schools around the world to gauge a student’s ability and potential for academic success. Having helped thousands of students reach their test prep goals and achieve admissions to the school of their dreams, we created this scholarship as a way to give back to the community we serve.

This scholarship will award a total of three (3) 10-hr tutoring packages to uniquely qualified students and families. During these uncertain times, we have decided to open up this scholarship opportunity to all students and families attending a school in Los Angeles county. Eligibility will revert in 2021 to students who qualify for free/reduced-price lunch and/or students who receive financial aid.
