Santa Barbara County’s Favorite Tutoring, Test Prep & College Counseling Center
Helping Students Succeed from Grade School Through College for Over 30 Years!
Whether a student is struggling in school, needs an extra push, or wants some academic enrichment, there are many reasons to choose tutoring for your child. One-on-one tutoring provides personalized attention, academic reinforcement, and is tailored to a student’s individual learning style. This helps students develop better study skills, build confidence, and improve their knowledge base.
Test preparation is a good idea to help students build confidence, reduce stress and do the best they can. Increasing a test score results in a favorable outcome and is a meaningful step along the educational path. Learning how to take a test is as important as the content and we guide students through the test prep journey. We offer intensive courses for the ACT/SAT/PSAT and AP exams.
