Is your son or daughter struggling in school? Are her grades so poor that you worry she’ll be left behind? Are her chances of attending a top notch school slowing slipping away?

As a good & caring parent, you care about your child and her future.

Sometimes kids and teenagers lose sight of their purpose—their future—of what’s important. Right now, students are facing an incredibly challenging time as schools have closed or shifted to online learning during the coronavirus. Research shows that during the coronavirus pandemic, American students are losing 6-8 months of prior learning gains. Further research from McKinsey has shown that young students will see their life-time earnings decrease by $80,000. And that is assuming they are back with in-person education in January 2021. There is no doubt—the pandemic and distance learning have been very challenging on children, teens, and families. Teenagers, who have the biggest need to connect with peers, have been mostly socially isolated. Psychologists have reported that during the pandemic levels of anxiety and depression have increased to nearly 66% among young adults and teenagers. This is astounding. I fear that even once the pandemic ends there will be lasting damage done to our society and to our future generations. We need to take care of them. We need to provide our young-ones with support and guidance for years to come. 
As a responsible and future-looking parent, you likely agree with this. You want to ensure your kids are getting the attention and education they deserve. Now is a great time to enroll your students in a tutoring membership—one with focused, dedicated, local tutors who can seamlessly transition between in-home tutoring and online tutoring.
Many of our tutors are now vaccinated and doing in-home tutoring.
America will recover from the pandemic. As I write this, more and more Americans are becoming vaccinated. This is good news for our country. But it will take time to heal. I suspect that students will struggle with learning math & science for years to come. Teens will struggle with higher rates of eating disorders, depression, and anxiety, even as the lockdowns lift and things get back to normal. It will take a team of helpers to get our best generation back on the right foot. But we can do it together.
This pandemic has also been difficult on mothers and parents. I’ve heard countless stories from mothers telling me how they are juggling their career working from home, taking care of the house, while also attending to their kid’s homework and school schedule. Many moms feel like they are being pulled in one-hundred different directions all-day long: “Moooooooommmmmmmm!!!!!!!!! Come help me!!!!!” “My zoom isn’t working!!!!!!” “MOM! MOOOOOOMMMMMMMMM! Mom. Mom. Mom.” Some moms have told me they don’t feel cut out to be a mother any more. They need some semblance of normalcy. They need their kids back at school. They need it to be quieter. Moms need a moment to just be by themselves with their thoughts. To have a moment to relax. But these moments have all but vanished for most mothers. It has been a really hard year for moms. Moms are ready to stop worrying. Moms are ready for life to get better. 
And while we probably can’t turn everything around, we’d certainly like to help & be part of your solution. At Tutor Portland we’ve helped many students turn their grades around. Our in-home & online tutoring is powered by our team of elite local tutors and backed by a Better Grades Guarantee. Our speciality is helping students improve their math, science, and Spanish grades so that they can gain acceptance to the college of their choice.

Meet Eric Earle:
Tutor Portland’s Founder

Eric Earle was born right here in Portland, Oregon. He has always been passionate about youth because “they are the next generation,” he often says. “We have to make sure they are prepared for the future and doing well.” Eric translated his passion for youth and education in his early 20’s when he founded Tutor Portland. At the time he was freelancing and spotted a number of holes in the Portland education system. Students needed to be inspired. They deserved to have private sessions with tutors who knew how to teach and how to explain tough concepts in multiple ways. Over the years Eric honed his tutoring strategy. That’s one reason why he was voted as one of the best tutors in the Pacific Northwest.

Eric developed a membership-based tutoring company with options in several different programs: high school, middle school, elementary school, homeschool, adult tutoring, and our pre-medical program. We focus on teaching these levels. We have taught to families and schools all across Portland.

Eric was born in Portland, Oregon. Eric believes in tutoring. He’s seen it work so many times. Eric has transformed failing students into A scholars, almost every time, in less than 45 days.

He has hand-selected a few elite tutors to help your child. Whether you have students enrolled in public or private schools in Lake Oswego, Eastmoreland, West Linn, or other Portland, Oregon neighborhoods, Tutor Portland is here to make your child a confident, goal-smashing student with a report card worth framing.

From The Founders Desk:

08/21/21 – Hello everyone. This is Eric Earle. I am still running and operating Tutor Portland. It’s been nearly 6 years now! I started this little local tutoring company in August 2015. Back then I was in my early 20’s. A few years later I had a life-changing calling to become a doctor. The problem was that I didn’t understand any math or science. So I used my own tutors—the very tutors in this company—to help me learn math and chemistry. At first I was unable to even enter a college math class because my math was so bad. But after working with the same tutors you will use in this company, I was able to get accepted into college math courses. I earned straight A’s in some of the most difficult college courses including organic chemistry, physics, and calculus. Many times I was at the top of my class. Before Medical School, I had to take the dreaded MCAT. It is an exam that is both bestial and intellectual. I really struggled to make any ground. For months, I went nowhere. And then I started working with a tutor. The MCAT tutor really helped me. I was able to turn my studying around and get a solid system for how to master that test. Now, in 2021, I am currently applying to medical schools. I applied to roughly 16-17 schools. I hope to attend medical school and to continue to run Tutor Portland, with a focus on math & science education. My experiences furthering my own education will most certainly help me manage Tutor Portland and lead it to become an even better tutoring company.

Tutor Portland has donated over $20,000 worth of tutoring to local schools.

Tutor Tip: Prepare for each exam as if it were an athletic event. This includes: practicing every day, eating healthy & exercising.

Tutor Tip: Make a study checklist. This gets you analyzing & anticipating what might be on the exam.

Tutor Tip: Contrary to what many people think, extensive research has proven that changing your answer on a multiple choice exam leads to higher overall test scores than does “sticking with your first choice.” 

Tutor Portland likes you. Thanks for choosing to read through our website.


  • Great Service, my HS daughter learned more Spanish in the last 2 months of the school year than she did during the prior 9 months. Was able to bring up her grade significantly.

    - Daniel Tamashiro

  • I will never use another tutoring company.
    Tutor Portland has a great membership program. I went with their 3X per week membership. Tutor Portland sent a tutor out within 24 hours and was able to help my oldest daughter in Chemistry. She had a C-. And I really wanted her to bring her grade up. Within a month, she had a B+. Within another few weeks, she was up to an A-.
    She finished with an A.

    - Stephanie Riley

  • “We had an outstanding experience with Ashley Yoo. For the past few months, our 7th grader had the opportunity to work with this inspiring and dedicated math tutor. Today our daughter’s math skills have markedly improved. As a bonus, her interest in math and overall self-confidence have increased as well. For our busy family, the in-home aspect of your service is a real plus. Please accept our sincere thanks!”

    - Kurt Whitman

  • “I was interested in a tutor because my 7th grade son wasn’t doing well in school. Eric started working with my son right away. I particularly like Eric’s no-time-limits package which does not put a limit to the time he spends with my child, fully adapting to his needs. I was happily surprised to find out that just 45 days later, my son had raisedh his grades from Ds and Fs to As and Bs. Seeing that final report card was such a sigh of relief. More than just being a tutor, Eric has helped inspire my son and set him on the path to success.”

    - Lawrence McCormick, Portland

  • “I was a bit skeptical at first, but I soon found Eric and Tutor Portland to be incredible. Eric worked with my son and won his trust at the first session. I’m so pleased with Eric and the relationship he has developed with my son. I could tell my son’s great improvement during past years. In fact, my son just recently got accepted into a great university. I feel so lucky to have found Eric to be my son’s tutor. I highly recommend him.”

    - Shela Lu, Portland

Tutor Tip: Did you know the longest answer selection on a multiple choice problem is most often the correct choice? When you don’t know the answer, tricks like these can improve your odds of choosing the correct answer.

The Tutor Portland Membership is here to serve you and designed to fit around your busy schedule. Sign up for a free session and test drive our tutoring membership within 24-48 hours, without paying anything.

Tutor Tip: Extensive research has shown that highlighting articles and textbooks while studying leads to higher scores on multiple choice exams.


  • Wasn't The Best Fit

Tutor Tip: Attempt challenging problems & concepts before you’re taught them. Research shows that struggling with ideas & problems helps us learn quicker and retain information more effectively.

Tutor Tip: Try to predict some of the test questions before the exam. If it’s multiple choice then also try to predict some of the answer bank.

Tutor Tip: Sleep. Sleep is critical to memory formation. Getting 7-9 hours of sleep each night helps our brain store information. One study found a direct correlation between hours of sleep and GPA.

Tutor Tip: Meditate. Research has shown that mindfulness meditation can improve test scores & grades. How does it work? Meditation works by reducing mind-wandering and worrying & by improving working memory.

The Tutor Portland Membership is known for its Better Grades Guaranteed. We Guarantee Better Grades for both of our top two membership tiers. We know that tutoring works from experience. Our founder, Eric Earle, always struggled with subjects like chemistry & math. He used to get stuck on problems and not know what to do next. In his twenties, with the help of tutoring, he went back to Portland State University to complete pre-medical courses. This included a significant amount of chemistry, biology, and mathematics. He excelled. Eric was a 4.0 student, earning over 100% in nearly every course. He did this with the help of tutoring and a few proven learning strategies that he shares with all of his students & tutors today.

Tutor Portland believes in you and your family. We are here to support you and your success.
