Russell Education provides private, one-on-one and online tutoring to students at schools in Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, and the surrounding suburbs. We work with students in grades K-12 (and some beyond) who need assistance in organization and planning, study skills, subject-area tutoring, and standardized test prep.
The tutoring staff includes the Director, David Russell, and a current roster of over 40 other tutors. The team can tutor nearly any subject in grades K-12 (and some college level subjects as well). Many of our tutors come by referral from members of the team. All tutors are interviewed and undergo reference checks. During the intake process, we engage clients in a wide-ranging initial conversation and often gather information from teachers, therapists, and other sources, in order to begin with a clear profile of the student. Tutors keep notes on each of their sessions, which are reviewed periodically. David is available for consultation with parents, tutors, and others on an as-needed basis. In the past 15 years, we have served hundreds of students at Bancroft, Beaver Country Day, Belmont Academy, Belmont Hill, Brimmer & May, BB&N, Cambridge Friends, Cambridge School of Weston, Dedham Country Day, Dexter Southfield, Fay, Fayerweather Street School, Gann Academy, Hillside, Maimonides, Milton Academy, Nobles, Riverbend, Rivers, Solomon Schecter, Thacher Montessori, Thayer, and Walnut Hill, as well as public schools in Belmont, Boston, Brookline, Lexington, Milton, Needham, Newton, Dover, Wayland, Wellesley, Weston, and Westwood.
