Tutor Doctor Hawaii Private Tutoring Services

Schedule a free academic assessment so we can best understand and support your child’s educational needs! Assessments take place in person at our learning center or online and last approximately 30 minutes.  We recommend prospective clients select the in-person option, if possible. It’s a great opportunity to visit our space in Manoa Marketplace, and get to know our team members. 

 Our goal is to match students with a tutor who fits both their personality and educational needs. During the assessment, our lead tutors use grade-level learning standards to get a snapshot of a student’s academic standing. They also gather information about students’ learning preferences, passions and interests beyond the classroom

 Afterwards, we send results and a comprehensive report to families including our insights and recommendations for areas of potential focus and development. 

Please note, these complimentary assessments are only available for students in grades PreK-6. For students in grade 7-12, and above, please complete the Tutoring Inquiry Form. We will respond with tutor matching information and start the scheduling process.

    In-person Tutoring

    We offer in-person tutoring at our space in the Manoa Marketplace. 

    We believe meeting in person is the most immediate and beneficial way for students to receive academic support. Students and tutors are fully engaged with one another without the distraction of screens or remote interruptions, and can build a strong report. Being in a dedicated space promotes focus and a sense of independence, and students can  take advantage of the numerous resources and educational materials available in our Learning Center. 


    Online Tutoring

    We offer online tutoring for students who would prefer to meet remotely, or for families who can’t make it out to Manoa on a regular basis. 

    We understand scheduling can be tricky and some students prefer a remote environment, regardless! Our tutors deliver the same high-quality, personalized experience for their online clients as they do in person. They employ user-friendly digital classroom software that makes it easy for students to interact with lessons and share work, and they take the time to establish a relationship with their remote clients.

    “(My tutor) has been absolutely wonderful! I’ve loved working with him and he is a great teacher. He definitely makes math a lot more fun and more simple!” 

    -Kyra D.

    “(My son) received his first set of grades from his latest math summative and the improvement is just astounding!  His tutor and (my son) make a great team and I am just so excited and appreciative.  (My son’s) teacher also noticed that he’s starting to slow down and focus more.  Thank you all so much.  This means so much to us!  I did not expect to see such a large change so quickly!  (My son) really enjoys his tutoring though he may not seem like it all the time.  He tells our family how much he likes working with his tutor.  Thank you all again.  So very excited for the future.”

    “My second grade son had private tutoring to challenge his reading comprehension and writing.  By the end of a couple months, he could dissect the very complex Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and moved on to read and analyze The Hobbit.  He even wrote his own short story!  His tutor was very conscientious of his strengths and weaknesses and was great at both encouraging and challenging him.  She knew how to make him feel comfortable and have fun while learning!”

    -Jeff L.     


      “Thank you Tutor Doctor for helping and challenging my girls. Two of my children have private tutoring, and the tutors have gone above and beyond my expectations. For my high school student, the tutor immediately recognized where she needed help and taught her the needed steps. My elementary child looks forward to spending time with her tutor because she challenges her while making learning fun.”

      Health & Safety Guidelines

        All students and staff are required to stay home if they are feeling sick or showing any symptoms of illness. This is a key step in keeping our center safe for everyone, and we kindly request for parents to assess their children before entering the learning center for tutoring sessions or academic assessments.  

        Students with a positive flu test result or exhibit flu-like symptoms (including a fever of 100.0F or higher and body aches) without a negative test should refrain from attending the learning center for a period of 5 full days following the onset of symptoms. They may consider returning before the 5-day mark only if they have been free of fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and have received clearance from a doctor. In the case of a positive COVID test or the onset of COVID symptoms, students should also remain at home for 5 full days, counting from the day of the positive test or the start of symptoms, whichever comes first.

        We are proud to offer our reward program for our tutoring students where they can earn prizes for successful tutoring sessions.  This helps to motivate students and focus on positive reinforcement and a good learning experience.
