Tutoring Walnut Creek Students in Lafayette Since 2004.

We’re still here, and now we’re also ONLINE.

Tutoring Walnut Creek Students Since 2004, and Online Since 2020

Lafayette Academy has been tutoring Walnut Creek students since the last century! That makes us sound really old, doesn’t it? We have many Walnut Creek residents attending Acalanes High School and Stanley Intermediate, two of the top schools in Lamorinda. Our tutoring helps students ace tests, earn higher grades, and develop higher academic self-esteem.  Our Lafayette location is close to Las Lomas, WCI, and Parkmead. Plus, you can always book one of our online tutors.

Our tutors know the Las Lomascurriculum because it’s part of the Acalanes Union High School District. We also utilize a variety of resources that our tutors have compiled based on their experiences with local students and teachers.  We know the problems that students typically encounter in most classes, and we’re ready for them!

Lafayette Academy tutors have collectively helped hundreds of students at Las Lomas, Northgate, and WCI, including Final Exam Crams.

Our tutors use flexible approaches based on each student’s learning style and familiarity with the material.  We are not a cookie-cutter operation. 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 also many tutors to choose from, which means there will (almost) always be a great match available to help your son or daughter.

Online Shadow Classes


Shadow Classes® are weekly, small-group tutoring sessions that shadow specific subjects at Acalanes or Las Lomas. Subject-specific classes  meet online and are led by one of our expert tutors, most of whom are intimately familiar with each school’s curriculum.  Two students can start a new Shadow Class by contacting Lafayette Academy and letting us know the days of the week and times that you prefer.  We will take it from there. Here are some of the features that make our Shadow Classes unlike the traditional services offered by other companies tutoring Walnut Creek students:


Our instructors collaborate with each other to ensure that we’re teaching “best of breed” strategies in each class. We use Slack because it’s arguably the best communications platform online!


We sometimes add FREE Shadow Classes if there’s an upcoming test that doesn’t coincide with one of our existing class times.


Our instructors explain the difficult concepts that the Shadow Class students need help with.


We preview upcoming material when our instructors realize that students may need a head start.


Lafayette Academy always personalizes instruction.

Shadow ClassesTM are online, and in our Lafayette location.

  • $196/month ($49/week per class).
  • Only $40/week if you pre-pay for the semester.
  • We would love to add Las Lomas Shadow Classes to our schedule, so please call us.
  • You can drop at any time and get a pro-rated refund based on the regular class fee.
  • The last time we surveyed our Shadow Class students, 91% said that their grades were one or two letters higher thanks to our classes!
