BASEC @ Burbank is a great opportunity for your child to…

  • develop schoolmate friendships outside of the classroom

  • spend his/her afternoons choosing from interactive games, activities and organized events.

Tutoring at BASEC @ Burbank

Our one-on-one tutoring program for enrolled students targets support on specific academic content or executive function skill-building.  Sessions are custom-designed to best meet your child’s needs. We draw on our strong long-standing relationships with classroom teachers to align our sessions with current classroom learning.

Each tutoring session meets for 30 minutes and can be scheduled for times before or after the school day. We believe that tutoring should foster a growth mindset and our teachers focus on that goal to determine the flow and direction of each session.

Availability is limited. For scheduling and pricing, please contact Ellen McEllin
