Fog City Tutoring

Fog City Tutoring's customized programs begin with an informal evaluation to identify the student's strengths and weaknesses. An educational plan is created to address any gaps in learning and push the student forward towards attaining his or her academic goals. With the customized program, the tutor will bring in outside curriculum as needed, while allowing time to reinforce coursework.


Kumon learning centers for children specializes in nationwide after school math and reading programs for preschool students through 12th grade. You’ll find that Kumon is different from passive learning programs. Instead of taking notes, memorizing facts, and being fed information from teachers or a tutor, your child actively develops critical, self-learning skills. Kumon has several locations in the Bay Area.

Sylvan Learning Center

Sylvan tutors use a personal approach and interactive technology to help kids learn math, reading, writing and more—turning B's into A's and frustration into confidence! Several locations are available throughout the Bay Area for your convenience.

Classes are aimed at children ages 5-18, and take place in local schools throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

California Academy of Sciences

Academy educators host teacher workshops, create classroom materials, and facilitate field trips year-round to inspire the next generation of scientists. Daily museum programs, events, lectures and digital learning opportunities bring the natural world to life for visitors and curious individuals from around the world.

Tutor Corps

Tutor Corps takes a personal, holistic approach to develop effective learning solutions for each student. Their team of educational experts partner with parents, teachers and the student to assess strengths, areas for improvement, and learning style. They then create a personal learning plan to help the student understand what to learn, and the method of doing so.
