Portola Valley Tutoring
Our Academic Coaches are not just tutors. We do more than Math Tutoring, ISEE Prep, and SAT Tutoring. Our aim is to build confidence, resilience, and self-advocacy that will last. Test prep and tutoring are only the beginning.
We have a track record of success with students from Sacred Heart Prep, Crystal Springs Uplands, Lick-Wilmerding High School, St. Ignatius College Preparatory, St. Francis High School, Menlo School, Castilleja School, Bellarmine College Preparatory, and other local schools. Located right off of I-280 in Woodside, our southernmost office makes pickup and dropoff easy and convenient for Portola Valley families.
Academic Coaching and Test Prep with Cardinal Education
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.
Beyond Grades and Test Scores
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.
College Admissions Counseling
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).
