Best Online & Virtual Tutoring Services For Lafayette, Orinda, Moraga, San Ramon, Danville, Walnut Creek –
Serving K-12 Grade Students From Across the Entire SF Bay Area
Our online tutors are intimately familiar with the local schools’ curricula. As we expand to new cities online, we will target districts that use the same textbooks. Our tutors share information on Slack and our most experienced tutors mentor newer Lafayette Academy tutors. Our exceptional instruction includes worksheets that help students understand difficult concepts. Lots of national companies brag about their technology and supposed training while we focus on what really matters to students. Our patient, positive tutors encourage your children and never belittle them. We want to bring out the best in everyone, including students, parents, and our staff.
When our tutors collaborate, they focus on the best ways to teach complicated topics. Students might not see the collaboration, but they reap the benefits. We focus on local schools wherever we are: Lamorinda and Danville since 2004, including the same “Big Ideas Math” textbooks that are used throughout Dublin, Pleasanton, and San Ramon. We know the concepts and problems that students struggle with (and why), and our tutors are ready to inspire “aha” moments from your children!

Our Lafayette and Lamorinda tutors have collectively helped thousands of students at Acalanes, Stanley, Miramonte, OIS, Campo, JM, and many of the Lafayette elementary schools. Online tutoring at Lafayette Academy will feel quite similar to the tutoring people have received for years in our centers.
We make learning engaging, relevant, and fun. Our tutors use flexible approaches based on each child’s learning 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, in one of our learning centers or online. There are many tutors to choose from, which means there will (almost) always be someone available to help your child. Finally, we are proud of our years-long support of the entire Lamorinda community, including many schools, LPIE, and the Chamber of Commerce (even though networking isn’t our forte).
Lafayette Academy offers the best online tutoring because we’re online and local. Our online tutors are intimately familiar with the schools they serve, even if they live remotely. For years, Lafayette Academy has been the local learning center for various cities in the San Francisco Bay Area. We have brought our local expertise online, creating a new class of tutors: “local, online tutors.”
For “popular” subjects (ones for which we have a lot of demand), we have introduced “tutor leaders” who follow that subject at various schools. Tutor leaders will post relevant information in our private Slack channels, including the best ways to explain complex topics to students. Often, we will have multiple worksheets for a given topic, so we can help students with different learning styles. Our super tutors also post insights about specific teachers and upcoming tests. If your high school has a Biology teacher who dances to his own drummer, we will know how to help you.
Sometimes, leader tutors rely on other tutors to obtain or create worksheets, videos, and other teaching tools that help our students. All of this information gathering elevates newer tutors to levels that approach our most experienced tutors. For students, this is hugely important because you can work with any Lafayette Academy tutor and have access to the greatest tutoring worksheets known to mankind. Hyperbole? Maybe not. We have yet to hire a tutor who had worked at another tutoring company with a comparable database! [Note: our curriculum development process is more involved than we have described here because we don’t want to give away all of our secrets.]
We will bring this local approach to new markets as we expand online. For this reason, we are growing surgically, with a focus on school districts using the textbooks that we know best. We hope that our unique approaches to tutoring will inspire new students to bring their friends to Lafayette Academy. Then, we can fully realize our local school-oriented tutoring ecosystem.
Lafayette Academy hopes to become a “local” learning center in all of its markets.
The Best Online Tutoring. Period.
This is a bold statement, but one that we embrace. When your son or daughter works with an online tutor at Lafayette Academy, he or she is supported by a team of people dedicated to each student’s success. Many tutoring companies claim to differentiate themselves, but in the end, most of their appointments come down to the interplay between a part-time tutor and a student with a lot on his or her mind.
Free Easy Access Student Edition (easyaccessmaterials.com)
Big Ideas is one of the most popular math textbooks in high schools across the country. It’s one of the textbook publishers we know well, including the exact problems that students will have in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry. Imagine the success of a football coach who knows the exact plays that his opponent will run in an upcoming game. That’s Lafayette Academy with Big Ideas Math.
