Online Tutoring

Lab School offers online tutoring for students with language-based learning differences as well as for students who do not have a diagnosed learning difference but may need one-on-one instruction in one or more core academic areas.

Our online Tutors are specialists in learning differences education — they provide tutoring services that offer individual attention and skill reinforcement, giving each learner the extra support they need to succeed.
