Subject Tutoring

Does your student have gaps in basic math skills, get anxious about tests in their AP History class, or just want to ensure their best science project ever? We have Gurus with subject expertise that can support their success in any school subject!

Small Group Tutoring

Individual or Small-Group Tutoring at My Education Guru

Individual tutoring offers intensive, personal support for your student in any academic subject. Our Gurus individualize each session based on your student’s needs: addressing schoolwork, creating custom assignments, and supporting their time management and organization throughout the week. Consider one-on-one tutoring if your student:

  • Is working on a particular assignment or test for school.
  • Needs to quickly build basic skills or master a subject.
  • Requires extensive support with organization or study skills.
  • Is easily distracted or discouraged by other students.

Small-group tutoring provides the social learning of a classroom, but with the individualized attention of a dedicated tutor. In a group of 3-7 students, our Gurus present enrichment curriculum in academic subjects, ensuring that your student shines in the classroom. Consider small-group tutoring if your student:

  • Has several classmates in the same subject that desire tutoring as a group.
  • Is reviewing for an AP test or SAT subject tests.
  • Needs tutor-supervised study hall time for homework completion or independent work.
  • Is seeking enrichment through participation in an advanced class

Project Based Tutoring

Project-Based Tutoring

Regularly-scheduled tutoring sessions with our Gurus’ help students find the rhythm of academic success. We offer a variety of custom schedules with our tutors: Most sessions are 1-2 hours in length and may be set weekly, biweekly, or multiple times a week. Contact us to set up an initial session—we will make recommendations for your student’s tutoring plan based on their needs.

Project-based tutoring sessions are scheduled with our Gurus on an as-needed basis. When students are working on a large project, compiling a portfolio, or studying for a major test they often need extra subject-specific support. Contact us with your deadlines, availability, and budget and we can craft a short-term tutoring plan that will support your student to turn in their best work!

We Also Cater to Students with Accommodations.

On - or Off-Site Tutoring

Tutoring on-site at our West Los Angeles location offers the greatest diversity of options, from regular small-group sessions in academic subjects to consultations with our experts in college counseling and learning accommodations. Our Gurus work face-to-face with our students in an environment structured to support their focus and best academic performance. Where possible, we recommend on-site tutoring to all of our students, because it offers:

A Distraction-Free Environment

Students have a place to spread out their work, no distracting environmental cues, and are encouraged to create a mental association between our location and focused work.

Maximum flexibility

We have the most Gurus and tutoring times available on-site and can accommodate last-minute changes (e.g. changing a regular math tutoring meeting to a college-essay preparation session).

A Curated Tutoring Experience

Our Gurus design their sessions from beginning to end to make maximum use of their time with a student. On-site tutoring eliminates delays in set-up or troubleshooting software, ensuring every minute is best used.

However, we know that on-site tutoring might not be ideal for every student. Upon request, we offer both in-home and virtual Guru sessions to help your student succeed, wherever they may be:

#

In-Home Tutoring

Our Gurus are able to travel to homes across Los Angeles, providing students with academic support in a familiar environment. Contact us with your location, academic needs, and time availabilities, and we will see which of our Gurus is right for you.

#

Virtual Tutoring

For students with full schedules or distant locations, we offer tutoring sessions via video-chat. Our Gurus are experienced in digital tools, using G Suite collaboration and tools as well as face-to-face video conferencing to create a focused and efficient learning experience from afar.

Our 4-Part Approach

Subject Tutoring Assessment

Conduct an Assessment

We assess each student’s unique learning needs by reviewing their coursework, upcoming assignments, content knowledge, and academic skills. Our Gurus use these considerations to devise realistic benchmarks and subject-specific goals for the student’s tutoring plan.

Subject Tutoring Tool & Strategy

Provide Tools and Strategies

We implement a wide variety of tools to match student needs. Some strategies include test preparation, immediate corrective feedback, scaffolding, and drill practice. For example, in one-on-one sessions our Gurus implement the 3-level approach to ensure deep comprehension of examples: The Gurus teaches a problem, the student re-explains that problem, and the student solves and teachers a new problem.

Subject Learning Troubleshooting

Troubleshoot Student Struggles

We implement a flexible approach, as certain strategies will not suit a particular subject, learning goal, or student. Our Gurus want students to learn how to adapt to different situations—we approach this by troubleshooting problems with students and demonstrating how to apply strategies in a classroom context.

Subject Tutoring Confidence

Help Establish and Reinforce Confidence

In subject-specific tutoring, many students maintain the long-term goal of good grades. Our Gurus support movement toward this goal, creating step-by-step routines and checkpoints so students can actively observe mastery developing. Through this structure, students can see their grades as a successful and predictable culmination of their progress, not a random reward or punishment.
