How do I get started?

You can get started today by contacting us at (310) 622-4591. We will start by discussing your child’s specific needs and the scope of work requested. Once we receive your enrollment, we will set you up with an expert tutor as soon as possible. Often, we are able to assign your tutor within 24 – 48 hours.

Is your teaching system custom-tailored to each student?

Yes. We understand the many different ways that children learn and how best to adjust our teaching style to them.

What is the teacher-to-student ratio?

Our teacher-to-student ratio is always one-to-one. We have found one-to-one teaching to be much more effective than group tutoring.

Do you have a guarantee?

Yes. If you are not satisfied for any reason, your first hour will be free and we’ll do what we can to make things right. We are committed to providing you with the best tutor possible.

Are there any long-term commitment requirements?

No. Unlike other tutoring companies, Alma Mater offers flexible scheduling and no-commitment programs. You can schedule daytime, evening, or weekend sessions and reschedule as needed. You can start and stop working with us whenever you’d like–you’re not locked into anything, ever.

Where is the teaching done?

All teaching is done in your own home. This is most convenient for children and parents, and allows for fewer distractions.

Do you personally interview every tutor?

Yes. Recruiting the best tutors and teachers is our most important priority. Parents can be assured that each tutor has had an extensive background check and meets our high expectations and standards.

What training and experience do your tutors have?

Most of our tutors are university or college graduates or students, some with Master’s or Ph.D. degrees in their respective fields. They are all experienced and passionate about transforming the lives of their students through personalized education.

If I have questions or concerns, who do I deal with?

Our dedication to customer service is absolute. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call the office and we will make every effort to resolve your issues right away.
