Atherton Tutoring

Our Academic Coaches are not just tutors. We help our students reach their goals, in and outside of the classroom. ACT Tutoring and High School admissions are just the starting point at Cardinal Education. We strive to build excellent habits and foster students’ ambitions through all of our rigorous, holistic programs.

Our roots in the Atherton run deep. For years we have been working with Atherton students attending Sacred Heart Prep, Menlo School, Castilleja School, The Nueva School, Crystal Springs Uplands, Phillips Brooks School, Woodside Priory School, St. Ignatius College Preparatory, and other local schools. Located right off of I-280 in Woodside, our southernmost office is an easy trip for our Atherton families.

Before beginning 1-on-1 sessions, we have a thorough first conversation to understand the broader context of your child’s needs. Taking into account academic standing, interests, strengths, and challenges, we build our programs to align with your short-term and long-term goals. Whether the goal is getting a better grade in math class, getting into the school of your dreams, or becoming a better writer, our top-notch coaches are here to help students build a brighter academic future.

We tailor our programs to best serve our individual students. No matter when students come to us, we are here to build learning skills and improve academic results. Our coaches are highly trained and have experience working with students of all strengths and abilities, including high fliers and those with learning differences. Beyond improving test scores and grades, our coaches help to build motivation and develop life-long skills that will serve students for years to come.

In addition to tutoring and test prep, we are also globally recognized for our college admissions consulting. Comprised of graduates from renowned universities, our team has a proven success in supporting and coaching Atherton students in achieving intellectual success and admission to world-class schools.

Our coaches will work around your schedule to find the best time to meet with your child. Want in home sessions? Our coaches will drive to your home. Prefer to work in our facilities? We can hold session in our Woodside office (or our Burlingame location, if that’s easier).
