Our Tutors

At C2, we’re more than just tutors. We’re mentors. C2 specializes in hiring exceptional people who are not only masters in their fields, but can also connect with students and encourage them to stay motivated.

C2 Education has a rigorous hiring process. All C2 tutors must score above the 95th percentile in their fields, and only a small percentage of all tutor applicants are accepted.

C2 has a tougher acceptance rate than Harvard!

Tutoring in Any Subject

No matter what subject a student is struggling with, C2 is here to pave the way to success. We also recommend foundational work in three core areas that can help students excel in multiple subjects: math, reading and writing.


Math builds on itself year after year, so a student who begins struggling with math now will fall even further behind in years to come. That’s why C2’s tutors provide students with the conceptual framework necessary for future math courses.

  • Algebra I and II
  • Geometry
  • Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus
  • AP Calculus AB and BC
  • AP Statistics

C2’s personal coaching in reading comprehension and reasoning skills helps students read actively and attentively. Our tutoring expands critical thinking and analytical abilities, helping students understand:

  • Using Context
  • Main Ideas
  • Inference
  • Drawing Conclusions
  • Literary Analysis
  • Character Analysis

Writing skills are some of the most important skills in life. They allow people to effectively influence the world around them. C2 Education’s writing classes help students plan, structure and evaluate various types of writing, revise effectively, and hone critical thinking skills so that they can become effective communicators in the world.

C2 writing classes include:

  • Creative, descriptive, technical, narrative, expository, and persuasive writing
  • Literary analysis and book reports
  • Research papers
  • Journal writing
  • College admissions essays

C2 Education is a 2016 National Tutoring Association Program of the Year!

C2 Tutor

Nicholas Dawes shares what he loves about tutoring students at our Almaden Center - “As much as I teach my students about writing, grammar, and history, they often challenge me to keep thinking and learning. Their youthful energy also keeps me looking at the lighter side of life: they remind me to keep laughing and to be less serious.”
