Tutoring the whole student.

Classroom Matters provides a customized program for students in grades K through 12 to help them excel in school, develop executive function skills, and take ownership of their learning.


Our philosophy



Our Community

Classroom Matters is a place where families feel supported and well-served.  Individualized instruction is provided by experienced university students, graduates, and credentialed teachers who are experts in their subject fields and trained in providing executive functioning support.



years in business

Since 2000, Classroom Matters has been the go-to destination for academic coaching, tutoring, test prep, and more.



Our tutors are well-rounded mentors who care about their students and create respectful and productive relationships with them.


students served

We work with all ages of
students and all types of learners. As we grow, so do our kiddos, who regularly refer their friends to us.



"Thank heavens for Classroom Matters!  We have relied on their support to help both of our kids through Berkeley High.   Over the years we have worked with them, they have done a superior job in finding excellent tutors who can connect and engage our high school students.  In addition to helping our kids through a sometimes very difficult urban high school, they also were a fountain of support and advice when we were tearing our hair out (not infrequently).  I can't say enough good about them..."

-Berkeley Mom


Our Mission

Classroom Matters subscribes to the philosophy that the best learning takes place when a student is approached holistically.  We address the emotional, the social, and the cognitive aspects of academic life in order to foster metacognition and self-advocacy in the kids we support.



Holiday Closure

Please note that Classroom Matters will be closed between December 24th and January 4th. There are no tutoring scheduled during these times. Sessions scheduled before and after these dates are still valid. Please contact frontdesk@classroommatters.com if you have any questions.

Rate Change

The costs of doing business are increasing and we need to adjust our rates accordingly. As of September 1, 2018, our rates will increase by $5 for all of our services. Please know this is not a decision we make lightly. We are committed to providing quality, accessible support to all families. We are equally invested in providing our staff with fair and competitive wages. We will continue to offer a sliding scale to low/single income families and to partner with AccessEd for scholarship opportunities.
