Guide to Tutoring Services [Online and in Los Angeles]

We all want our kids to do well in school, and sometimes that means hiring a Tutor – someone who can help them really dig into a specific subject. Private tutoring can help your child in multiple grade levels, and here in the Los Angeles area, there are many different options for finding tutors, both online and in person.

We’ve created this list of all types of tutors to help you get started finding the right one for your child, whether you’re looking for tutoring in Santa Monica or in Alhambra.

Los Angeles Area Tutors

Kids each have their own learning styles and some really do their best with someone who can work with them on a one-to-one basis. Great tutors will figure out how your child learns and give them the kind of instruction they need.

Some of us may have done well in school ourselves, but that doesn’t mean we can necessarily help our kids with their schoolwork in every case. Sometimes a Math Tutor is just what the doctor ordered.

As your child gets older, they may need different kinds of tutoring. Your Middle School student may need you to find tutors that work with kids in new ways, helping them navigate a whole new school.

And High school students may need Test Prep tutoring as they in ever closer to those college admissions applications.

Online Tutoring

Finding the best tutor may not always mean finding someone local, either. Online Tutoring can be ideal for many families, allowing you to pick the right tutor and fit the work time into the schedule that works best for you.

As we’ve all learned during this new normal, video chat is pretty easy to set up and by now it’s something kids are used to. So wherever you are, we hope this list will help you find tutors to help your child learn.
