OUR SERVICES INCLUDE:
Subject Tutoring K-12 (Elementary, Middle, and High School) – All Sciences, including Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, and Geology up to and including AP Level; English; History; Geography; Foreign Languages (French, Spanish, Hebrew, Latin, Italian), and Judaic Studies. We offer tutoring in every subject up to and including AP Level. All of our Subject Tutoring is tailored and personalized for each student, and we make our best effort to match tutors and tutees based on mutual compatibility, the tutor's subject expertise, and your child's academic goals and aspirations, learning profile, and personality, amongst other associated characteristics.
Standardized Test Prep – SAT, ACT, ISEE, SSAT, SAT Subject Tests, CAHSEE, etc. Our tutors all scored exceptionally well on the SAT and/or ACT in order to get admitted to the Ivy League, and as a result are intimately aware of the intricacies and specifics of each Standardized Test. Our course of Test Prep consists of both content teaching and test-taking strategies. We relieve you of the stress that typically accompanies college applications and the standardized test prep process. Many students who took our ISEE course of Test Prep have been accepted into some of Los Angeles' very best Middle and High Schools (Harvard-Weslake, Campbell Hall, Buckley, Crossroads, Viewpoint, Archer, Brentwood, Milken, New Community Jewish High School, Marlborough, Notre Dame, St. Matthews, Oak Park Independent School, Sierra Canyon, Le Lycée Français, Windward, Berkeley Hall, Crespi, Wildwood, Pilgrim, and countless others).
College Counseling - Personalized for and tailored to each student, conducted by College Counseling Specialists who are all Ivy League Graduates. Since our College Counseling Specialists put together their own applications to successfully gain admission into some of the World's Most Selective and Elite Institutions, they are ideally positioned to help your child achieve his or her personal and specific college goals, whichever they may be, and can offer a specific course of study and recommendations to allow him or her to get into the college of his or her dreams. Our College Counseling Specialists help with everything from putting college applications together to college essay brainstorming, drafting realistic college lists, and prepping students for their college interviews.
Essay Help - From providing research guidelines to helping with brainstorming, outlining and polishing papers, our Master Writing Specialists, a majority of which hold advanced degrees in English, Literature or History as appropriate, are always happy to assist a student with his essay writing needs and goals.
TV and Film On-Set Tutoring - We are the only Los Angeles-based tutoring company that provides tutoring help on-set to young actors, in addition to the SAG-mandated Studio Teacher, for families who enjoy the more personalized attention a tutor can provide.
International Tutoring - On select occasions, we have placed tutors who are willing to travel with families whose professions require extensive international travel or young professional students, often in Entertainment and Arts-Related Industries, whose busy careers require them to travel around the world. Please inquire within about this service.
Home Schooling / Independent Study - We create tailored programs personalized for the unique academic, educational and professional needs of each of our numerous Independent Study students, which includes pairing your child with a team composed of some of our most experienced Ivy League-educated instructors.
Because our students are enrolled in every single one of the best Home School Programs in existence today, we are intimately aware of the strengths and weaknesses of every program and can recommend the program best suited to your child's goals, educational background, and academic objectives. We are truly your Independent Study Concierge; we routinely assist with every step of the Home School enrollment process from selecting an appropriate course of study and choosing the most relevant accredited online School based on your child's learning profile, college goals and educational profile, to collaborating directly with the selected School's instructors to provide the most individualized instruction possible.
We are the Homeschool Specialists: some of our tutors worked and taught for the very Home School Programs our students are enrolled in, while others have been involved in developing the curricula of these Schools. Yet many more of our Home School specialists are parents who themselves homeschooled their students using the same Home School programs our student are enrolled in.
In some cases, we create a personalized course curriculum to tap into the specific interests, goals and skills of each Independent Study / Home-School student, and our tutors can complement the prescribed course of study with enrichment opportunities for highly motivated independent learners.
Students with Learning Differences - We work with students of every ability level, academic goals, and personality, including those with learning differences. A select few of our tutors are especially trained and experienced in tutoring students with minor and/or advanced learning disabilities (including children on the Autism and Asperger's spectrums), while some of our most advanced tutors have worked for or been associated in various capacities with the Westmark and Park Century Schools. As warranted in each child's unique and personal situation, we often integrate software tools - the very ones recommended and used by licensed educational therapists - that can teach your child proven ways to extend his or her focus, target his or her study, and extend his or her attention span, providing long-term benefits that focus on cognitive skill building and improve visual and auditory processing.
Review Sessions for Tests and Finals - Our tutors are available to schedule additional review sessions before finals (APs included) as well as provide remedial help to new clients who seek an accelerated course of tutoring to review for final exams.
Test-Taking Strategies, Time Management, and Study & Organization Skills - We take pride in our unique, proprietary program that creates tailored, personalized study plans for each and every student, as well as teaches your child actionable skills so he or she can eventually thrive academically on his or her own and become a successful independent learner.
