Our Process


At the point of intake, we want to learn as much as possible about your child. Everything from academic history and learning profile to personality and hobbies is considered carefully when choosing the right tutor match. We love to meet in person when possible both to get the best interpersonal sense of your child and to gain student input and emotional buy-in. When an in-person intake is not viable, we are happy to schedule a lengthy phone intake instead.


Our intake process includes many of the following components:

  • Confidential review of educational testing

  • Consultation with existing team of allied professionals

  • Review of past work samples and current workload

  • Formulation of academic goals and expectations for our services


As a unified team approach promotes cooperation and mutual understanding, we encourage communication between parents, students and tutors with regard to expectations and goals at school and at home.


  • Biweekly session summary notes emailed to parents and designated recipients

  • Clinical supervision provided to your student’s tutor by Hayutin directors

  • Academic resources, tech tools and supplemental curricular recommendations

  • Ongoing family consulting and liaising with school contacts when requested

  • Informed referrals for allied professional services available as needed

Reasons To Be Proud


  • Every administrative leader at Hayutin is an educator first.  All six of us have either a teaching credential, graduate degree in education, past classroom or studio teaching experience.  Four of us are native Angelenos.

  • While some educational companies rise and fall, we have thrived in Los Angeles for over two decades.


  • We frequently present on Executive Functioning to colleagues at large conferences, to parents at local independent day schools and to students in schools throughout the city.

  • Our strong referral relationships with school administrators and allied professionals empower us with a unified team effort.


  • All of our associates are hourly employees, not independent contractors.  The many benefits they enjoy are well-deserved in recognition of their commitment, professional caliber and status in the educational space. 

  • We fund ongoing professional development opportunities for our entire team of educators to remain current with best teaching practices, curricula and methods.


  • We proudly make an annual commitment to personally fund thousands of dollars in tutoring scholarships to a number of students with a demonstrated financial need at many schools throughout Los Angeles.

  • With a long history of giving time and treasure to vital community organizations like the Coalition for Engaged Education, Fulfillment Fund and Project GRAD, we remain community-driven and connected.
