Stepping Stones to Learning has been an integral part of the San Gabriel Valley community for 45 years. Our tutors are academic mentors who not only focus on teaching the subject material, but on coaching students so that they are better able to navigate their scholastic environment now and in the future. Stepping Stones never takes a cookie-cutter approach with our clients. We strongly believe that every student deserves one-to-one attention and an understanding of his or her unique learning styles and goals.

 

 

 

"My son's sessions are individualized to work on the areas he needs help with most and their approach is personalized to his learning style. This isn't a cookie cutter place. I was expecting him to dislike his sessions there but he looks forward to them because his time there is engaging and fun while still making progress in his development goals." - Parent
"Stepping Stones continues to put the students interests first and works closely with parents to achieve goals." - Rene, Parent
"I have been impressed with the staff and management at Stepping Stones. They have been very responsive to questions about my child's progress and their tutors I have come into contact with appear to be top notch." - Parent
"The team at Stepping Stones has been wonderful to work with. Both Anna and Carol provided my daughter with a wonderfully warm welcome, and made her feel very comfortable with the ISEE test prep process. I was extremely pleased to see Stepping Stones take the time to really get to know my daughter and her learning style before matching her with a tutor best suited to her needs. The support they offer their students is inspiring!" - Elaine, Parent
"My daughter got into her first three choices of high schools and even received a scholarship from another! I think the confidence she felt in approaching the ISEE and HSPT were a big factor!" - Sarah, Parent
"Although my son only had five visits prior to the HSPT test, he told me that he learned more in those five sessions than he did for during an entire semester of HSPT prep course he had at his school! I know we will use Stepping Stones again. Thank you!" - Parent
"The boys love working with you! William was so thrilled because he got 100% on his last Figurative language test. He said he was so stressed about it but you had some great studying tips and made him feel much more comfortable about the material. Thank you for your wisdom, patience, and care. The boys truly look forward to seeing you....I love that they see coming to Stepping Stones as a positive experience... Not as a "chore" or something that has a negative connotation. To me, it has been enriching and a complementary component to the public education here in San Marino. I thank YOU for making learning so fun and exciting. The boys tell me that Bette knows everything and always has some interesting facts and stories to share. This is so valuable especially as we have witnessed the class sizes get bigger over the years. We are so thankful for the one-on-one learning with YOU!" - Jennifer, Parent
"I am truly grateful to both you and the tutors who have helped me through the years, and would definitely not have been able to do as well in school nor get into such good universities as I did. The system you have at Stepping Stones really is something special, and it does so much more for the student's growth than most other tutoring places where they might rather do all the work for the student instead of teaching. I hope you continue to be a great help to students for a long time to come!" - Jordan, San Marino High School Student

BIG News! As we celebrate 45 years in business this year, we're also planning a GRAND OPENING! We'll be bringing Stepping Stones to La Canada this fall!

 

We can’t tell you how much we value the incredible commitment of our La Canada and surrounding area families as they have traveled to San Marino to work with us over the years. It is our turn to come to them, and we could not be more thrilled! We have been welcomed by the warm community of La Canada, and we are sure that we’ll enjoy the same sense of close community that we do in our San Marino location. Plans are being made to ensure that the Stepping Stones standard of excellence will be maintained and enhanced in the future just as much as it has for the last 45 years. We are committed to continuing our mission of providing outstanding educational support to the students, families and area schools long into the future.

Stay tuned for an invitation to our Grand Opening Party and 45-Year Celebration in the fall of 2016!
