Lafayette Academy Online Tutoring

Our online tutors are intimately familiar with the local schools’ curricula, particularly schools with “Big Ideas Math” 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.  Our patient, positive tutors encourage your children and never belittle them.

Online Tutoring Online Tutoring Online Tutoring That's Local Online Tutoring

Our tutors collaborate to identify 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 bring “aha” moments to your children!

A Recent Online Survey

We recently surveyed our online families and all of them are happy with online tutoring at Lafayette Academy, and none want to switch to in-person sessions.  Here are a few representative comments: “online is going great and very convenient;” “very pleased with tutoring provided by A.B.;” “It is just as helpful as in-person tutoring.”  We realize that we are not the first online tutoring provider, and we are doing everything we can to differentiate Lafayette Academy and instill in our families the same confidence they have when they come to our centers.

Our tutors know the Acalanes and Stanley curriculum and how it’s tested. Many of our tutors also know the curriculum at Campo, Las Lomas, Miramonte, JM, and OIS. We 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, and we’re ready for them!

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).
