Hi, and welcome to Anne Marie Scott’s corner on the internet. I invite you to browse and learn all about my tutoring services in the San Lorenzo Valley and parts of Santa Cruz. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule tutoring time.

I have currently been an educator in private practice for 25 years. I began tutoring while working towards my masters degree in Waldorf Education. By the time I had finished my BS in agricultural ecology here at UCSC, I had uncovered the huge demand and profound satisfaction that tutoring had here.


I, Anne-Marie Scott am an academic tutor who sees students in person and online to facilitate actuating their full potential.  I teach and reteach subjects to make doing school assignments a more fun and rewarding experience. Whether it is in a small group or one on one, I get the luxury of catering my lessons to each student’s individual learning style and goals, no matter the neurological difference, learning disability, or personal challenge. The student’s academic needs and personal goals are what is most important.

I regularly see students at my tutoring center up in the hills of the Santa Cruz mountains, easily accessible from Highway 9 and only minutes from downtown Boulder Creek. As an alternative, I both also will come to tutor students in their home or school, at libraries, or other mutually agreed on places. I have students in the San Lorenzo Valley: Boulder Creek, Brookdale, Ben Lomond, and Felton; Scott’s Valley and also in the city of Santa Cruz.


We are a small progressive tutoring company that provides individual tutoring in the convenience of your own home, school, library or our tutoring center up in the hills of the Santa Cruz mountains, under the canopy of the temperate rainforest that is the Redwood trees. Our local small business consists of tutors Anne-Marie Scott, who has been tutoring around Santa Cruz for over 20 years, and James Nelson, who started tutoring over a decade ago in New York, but has been tutoring students individually and with Anne-Marie for the past 2 years.

Our entire tutoring team is pictured above! That’s us pictured right in front of a beautiful Redwood. While we are a small company, our combined experience allows us to instruct students in Language Arts, Spanish, Math, Science, Social Studies, SAT/ACT Prep, Home School studies and even sports like Tennis and Archery!

We like to take the holistic approach and look at the whole kid, not just the subject they are struggling with. We use our extensive training and experience to penetrate the riddle of their mind. We are aware of the indicators of kinesthetic, visual, and audio learners and cater our lessons thus. Although we can use titles like “on the spectrum”, gifted, or ADHD, we dislike the boxes it puts people in. Each student is, to us, a marvelously imperfect being (like us all!) and there is no one way to teach. It’s the beauty of individualized lessons and why we love to teach.
