Services Overview

Our one-on-one tutoring and test prep services can take place in-person for families who live in the general Pasadena area or on Zoom. We meet students via Zoom, which allows us to use a whiteboard and share our screens for instant demonstrations. Our tutors can help answer homework questions, teach material, help with organization or school projects. Our one-to-one instruction is tailored to students’ needs.  Our tutors have whiteboards where they can solve problems, write practice problems, and collaborate with students. Our goal is to ensure that students have a successful in-home learning experience.

How it works

Schedule a phone call or Zoom meeting with Marina for a quick consultation. She will ask several questions to learn more about your student’s needs. Based on the conversation, she will match your student with a tutor. Marina will set the first appointment in person or on Zoom, and following appointments can be set with the tutor directly, through Marina, or on our web booking service. No need to purchase packages or commit to a number of sessions; you can book sessions as needed or set up a weekly appointment. You have the choice to pay per session or once a month. We accept Venmo and all major credit cards.

For test preparation, we ask students to take a practice test. We will then create a proposal based on the results.

Working with Mundo Academy was very helpful and effective because of the individualized attention. The resources I was given were very helpful for studying for the ACT. My ACT score increased from a 27 to a 32 in a month.

The best thing about tutoring with Mundo Academy just how supportive you were..walking me through each problem I got wrong and didn’t understand. Some of the tips you gave on how to tackle certain sections of the ACT or even the HSPT, a few years ago. The support and advice you gave, through the entire process was the best thing. you really just helped me from middle school until now, and I wouldn’t have gotten the same outcome if I had gone anywhere else.

For ACT Prep, we worked through the problems. For instance, when I worked with you, we would go over the questions. You would give me a timer, and we would go over the questions individually to see why I got them wrong and how I got them wrong. That was really helpful to me, to get feedback on why it was, and not just knowing that it was wrong.
