Customized, High Quality Test Prep and Tutoring

It’s A Match

At Lion Academy, we believe that relatable tutors are effective tutors. Our customized process elevates the traditional one-on-one tutoring model by pairing each student with a mentor whose qualifications and teaching methods are most suited to that student’s unique goals and learning style.

Why Lion?

Our Tutors are subject matter experts, having scored in the top 1% on the tests for which they tutor. Our Program Head, a Yale PhD with over 15 years of tutoring experience, oversees the training of all of our tutors to ensure they are outstanding teachers. One of our highly qualified counselors conducts regular meetings with parents to confirm that we are on track, and that our families are getting the most from our program.

“…They were professional, thoughtful, and knowledgeable in their capacity as educators and managers. They evaluated my son’s needs and perfectly placed him with an outstanding tutor for SAT prep. I was so impressed with their expertise and support that I referred several friends, who have been thrilled with the results.” -Elizabeth B.
