Our Goal is to Provide the Highest Quality of Test-Prep Assistance!

At MANU KAI we aim to work on confidence, responsibility and self-esteem in addition to academics. Our tutors are well versed with alternative teaching styles and have experience with academic coaching, homeschooling, tutoring and test preparation. We strive to mold our teaching styles for each of our students and encourage every tutor to focus on study skills as well as difficult concepts.

During our test-prep sessions we guide students with proven problem-solving and test-taking strategies.  Through our focused one-on-one sessions, students are able to get specialized attention on the areas they struggle with most. This allows us to hone in on their weaknesses, be it reading comprehension, math, understanding scientific data or something else. The one-on-one sessions are flexible and can range from 1.5-2hrs once a week.

In addition to the one-on-one sessions we highly recommend that students join one of our group sessions that we offer to get generalized help on test taking strategies and common difficulties.  We also offer practice exams at our office twice a month.  In doing so, we proctor, grade and analyze these exams to focus on each student’s weaknesses.  This allows us to tailor each student’s weekly test-prep sessions to their individual needs.

We come highly recommended by the finest educators, public schools, and private schools in the Santa Barbara area. It is also a telling detail that the vast majority of our families come to us by referral.
