Tutoring: Academics and Grades Matter

As much as we all would like to promote learning for learning’s sake, the fact is that you are going to be tested, you are going to be judged on your performance and your ability to achieve your goals will depend on how well you do.

Grades, ugh. They don’t define who you are but they can prove to be critical in determining your path.

Achieve is often brought in during a time of crisis: a falling grade, a huge assignment, an important final. Our tutors will help get you get that grade up and beat the final but not without targeting a greater goal. 

Even while preparing for a flash point, in any subject area, at any time of year, we work with you to build the critical thinking skills that are essential for creating a strategic approach to learning that will help avoid crises in the future.

For over twenty years Achieve has guided students to success in every academic subject. From Kafka to Calculus; Algebra to AP European History; Honors French to AP Physics, we have experts that not only understand the material, they know how to package it in a way that makes the material accessible to all kinds of learners.

We Can Help You Improve Your Grades and Your Academic Engagement

Excelling in school week after week is challenging. Continued success requires a clear understanding of the subject matter, but it also demands engaging academically in a way that most high school students have never learned.

We can help.

We are subject matter experts with many years of experience, and we know how to tailor our tutorials to get the best out of every student. 

We help students make deeper connections with their courses so increased academic engagement is interesting and rewarding. 

We teach our students how to play the game with each teacher in each class so they can excel and grow academically and personally.

We know LA area schools inside and out, and often know exactly what your individual teachers expect from you on homework, quizzes, tests and projects.

Specializing in the Scholar-Athlete

Achieve Tutorials specializes in working with scholar-athletes. Students who perform at a high level in athletics face unique challenges excelling in the classroom.

Learn How to Succeed in School and Athletics

We understand these challenges, so we work one-on-one with a small, select group of student athletes from the most academically rigorous schools in Los Angeles.

Integrity, Leadership and Resilience

With our students, we focus on personal growth in the classroom and on the team, and we coach integrity, leadership, resilience and a desire to learn from each success or setback. This requires that Achieve tutors and academic mentors help our students maintain superior grades even in busy athletic seasons and work with students to develop efficient time management and life-balance skills.

If this sounds like your son or daughter, call now to see how we can help.

Building Study Skills a Better Way

Organization, time management, keeping track of due dates and making sure that you have all the materials you need when you need them is what a standard study skills curriculum tries to encourage by force of will. It is kind of a like a diet in which you list all of the things you know are not good for you and then try not to eat them.

At Achieve we look at study skills a little differently. We believe that in the rush to improve grades and memorize material for grades, entrance exams and standardized tests, parents and students can neglect nurturing the creative and analytical instincts that fuel the most vital part of studying: intellectual curiosity. Our tutors encourage the student’s curiosity and passions matching that eagerness to learn with the school curriculum, finding the intersection where interests and class assignments converge.

Whether it’s using an AP Physics lesson to explain why a curveball curves or using Shakespeare’s Henry IV to strengthen a paper for European History, a student finds that learning changes from being the burden of memorizing irrelevant facts and dates to a narrative that makes sense in understanding the world around.
