Santa Cruz Learning Center

501 Cedar St. Suite C, Santa Cruz CA 95060  |   831-331-5611  |

We are a small business that provides academic support to clients of all ages. Our business is designed to serve k-12, college and adult life long learners and reentry students. We offer a range of services including private and group tutoring, homeschool classes, standardized test prep, exam proctoring and summer activities.
Our center is an informal, engaging environment where we take a down-home approach to teaching.  We are proud of our ability to make connections with students that last long after they have completed school.  

Tutoring Services

Tutoring servicesare offered individually or in small groups (2-3 people). Tutoring clients can pay per session (usually 1 hour). Clients who pay by the month will receive a membership to our homework club, which is at the center during business hours. Our tutors are skilled professionals with degrees in the subjects they tutor. One-on-one tutoring: sliding scale of $50-$70/hour Groups of two ($30/hr per student), of three: $25 per student per hour and groups of four or more: $20/hour per student or by agreement.     

Homeschool Courses

We offer a variety of homeschooling courses for elementary, middle and high school students. We like to think of ourselves as the bridge between a traditional classroom and home school.  Students will experience learning in a variety of ways including: lecture, facilitated group work, laboratory inquiry and other hands-on methods.  High school students enrolled with Ocean Grove Charter School will receive a-g credit for our math and science courses. Our instructors are trained in the subjects they are teaching. Check out our course offerings and enroll now.   We are vendors for Ocean Grove Charter School and we are in the process of becoming vendors for Inspire.

Test Proctoring

Test Proctoring Services  are $40 per exam. For those who have multiple exams per semester, please contact us to set up a flat rate fee for the semester. We are set up to proctor a number of online schools but if additional paperwork is needed, please let us know. On average, we need at least a week lead time to coordinate with your online school in order to administer the exam.

Study Academy and After School Support

This service is no longer available as of Fall 2019.  For students who need after school support, please see our group tutoring rates.

SAT/ACT courses are taught in small groups (2-6), or in small classes, which run in short time increments (ie: four-week session meeting twice per week for two hours at a time or eight-week session meeting once per week for two hours at a time). Private tutoring is offered as well. Contact us if you are planning to take a standardized exams. Individual assistance (with a tutor trained in the particular subject) is offered for students who would like to prepare for an SAT subject exam. Tutoring prices apply.
