    Tutor Me LA

     

    A group of young entrepreneurs has revolutionized the education industry in Los Angeles. It is not coincidental that these recent college graduates have succeeded in providing a reliable tutoring service to the greater Los Angeles area in a time when budget cuts have led to paramount reductions in the quality of public education. Tutor Me LA LLC provides a range of dependable services from private one-on-one mentoring to college counseling, all by recent graduates who have endured the challenges behind academic success. The innovative company was formed in 2012 and has now grown to 43 tutors who service over 680 students in the West Los Angeles area alone.

     

    As you look through your local Yellow Pages, you can find a variety of supplemental education services in your area, so what makes Tutor Me LA different? The first thing that sets this service apart from other tutoring companies is their competitive prices. With rates starting at $40/hr, their prices are 50 percent less than many of the other major competitors out there. Their clients are not just drawn in by the company’s fair service fees; rather, they are curious to try out what one parent said to be “the single greatest thing I did for my child’s education.” The company’s reputation is supported by countless academic success stories that travel via word of mouth by satisfied parents and students

     

    What makes this tutoring service stand out is their personable and reliable tutors which each bring their own academic experiences to the study table. The company’s foundation is built on hiring students from the University of California Los Angeles who passed at the top 5% of their classes. Students from all grade levels are strategically matched with tutors who excel in specific subjects areas and have the proficiency to ensure the most beneficial tutoring experience. Tutors are requested by appointment in the security of your home or public place such as a library, café, etc. “We are eager to continue to embark on a career path in education in an endeavor to incorporate our thirst for knowledge with a passion for constructive social interaction. As a tutor, the opportunity to connect with students will persistently underscore the humanistic aims of our daily work. More importantly, the dynamic nature of the field will keep us intellectually engaged for as long as we remain involved in education.” –Daniel Makabeh (Co-founder & CEO)
