About Us

What We Do

We find those rare students in your community who excel academically and have a passion for passing down their experience, knowledge, work ethic, and love for learning. Since our tutors are hard-working students, we give them as much freedom and responsibility as possible. Our tutors set their own hours, lesson plans, and even their pay. Once you reach out to any of the tutors on our site, they will work with you to determine the best lesson plan for your student as well as the rates and schedule for tutoring sessions!

Who We Are

Hometown Academy is run by a group of students who have seen the positive impact that young tutors and mentors can have on the next generation. Our goal is to make local tutoring by talented high school and college students available for all families. We are dedicated to empowering high-achieving students to make a bigger impact on their communities and aim to ignite the future leaders of the world through learning and education.

COVID-19 Response

The safety of our students and tutors is our number one priority. As a result, although many of our tutors are local, we always offer the option of fully remote tutoring sessions. When working remotely, our tutors will use the most up-to-date learning platforms (Zoom, Google Hangouts, etc.) to teach students in an effective and safe manner. When working in-person, tutors will work with you to determine ideal safety protocols for sessions. If you have any further questions or concerns regarding coronavirus, please reach out to us at
