Founder and CEO
Welcome to Achieve Tutorials
I have painstakingly recruited a small group of highly experienced, elite educators to join our team. Our students, who attend some of the best junior high and high schools in Los Angeles, value our one-on-one, in-home and on-line tutoring. We work with each student as a unique individual, and customize our teaching approach to the student’s goals, learning style and abilities, and school curriculum.
We’re more than just tutors; we’re Academic Mentors committed to the long-term academic success of our students. We’re experts at helping students and parents navigate the challenging path to college — from schoolwork to the SAT and ACT to application essays.
If you are ready to invest in your child’s academic future, I invite you to get started today.
Harvard Westlake Parent
“We have worked with Achieve Tutorials for 7 years (tutoring our two very different children). The tutors are all excellent in their respective fields. In addition, they are intuitive and sensitive to the needs of each particular child. Both our children have always looked forward to working with their tutors…What sets Achieve apart from the other programs is the leadership of Pete Edwards. He is smart, organized and driven ( Princeton Graduate)! He also insures the appropriate match of tutor with student. I can not imagine high school for our children without Achieve Tutorials!!!”
Brentwood and Marlborough Parent
“Achieve Tutorials has been a one stop shop for our four children. They have prepped our eldest for her SAT’s and GRE’s with great results. Our two middle children prepped for their ACT’s with Achieve and both were able to hit the mark on their test scores and attend the school of their choice. Achieve has helped the children with all of their subjects from Algebra to zoology and beyond.
We give them our highest possible recommendation. We have referred Achieve to many friends and they have had the same positive experiences.”
“I studied with Jay for two years and highly recommend him. Jay is the best! He has great knowledge of the subject matter and as well as a great knowledge of the course content. Thus, we were able to focus on exactly what I needed help with. He is the best tutor I have ever had and the results were great!”
“High school, particularly math and science classes, were a huge struggle for our daughter, but after working with Achieve Tutorials, she not only did much better in school (from a C to an A- in math), but she decided to become a science major in college! She was so inspired, and I can’t thank our tutor enough for making her confident in her own abilities. These guys are great!”
St. Matthews Parent
“Audra worked with my son preparing for the ISEE. He loved working with Audra and improved enough to get into his first choice, Harvard Westlake! We’ll definitely use Achieve Tutorials again!”
“Our two kids have worked with Pete and two or three other tutors from Achieve Tutorials for more than three years. They have excelled in school and my oldest is now showing great improvement on his ACT. Everyone we’ve dealt with has been incredibly supportive and has been able to push our kids into a greater understanding of their classes. They look forward to every meeting.”
