Productive Day at our El Segundo Study Hut Location Yesterday!!

March 26th, 2013
Today we are talking all about the El Segundo Study Hut Office!  We provide a wide array of services, from subject tutoring to test prep to help with college admissions.  Our team of experts can tutor almost any high school subject through the AP level.  We also have tons of experience with training for the SAT, ACT, HSPT, ISEE, GRE, and many other tests.
The El Segundo Study Hut had a very productive day yesterday and we wanted to share some highlights with you all !!
Key features and highlights:
1. We signed up an AP Calc kid
2. We trimmed up the outside (we consider it the most lush hut)
3. We prepped the tutors for the next 12 weeks – since Summer is right around the corner and we need the students to keep on track during the summer to make sure they don’t fall behind.
4. We added a computer station
5. We posted AP diag dates (same as Manhattan’s) – which were March 24th and the next one coming up is April 20th!
6. We replenished materials for all the SAT subject tests
7. We graduated to a housekeeping service
8. We planned a tutor gathering
9. We found a spot to hang the surfboard
10. We put an order in for an espresso maker
11. We ordered a new shipment of after school snacks
12. We dusted the corners and behind the bookshelves

13. We stocked the mini fridge

14. We added a whiteboard
15. We added new indoor plants to the family
The El Segundo Study Hut is located on Arena Street in El Segundo off of El Segundo Blvd. Co-Owner SP and others built the Tiki Hut that is pictured above!
While the majority of our students walk or drive over for tutoring from El Segundo High School, El Segundo Middle School, Center Street School, and Richmond Street School, we also work with students from all over the lower Westside.  We tutor students from Westchester High School, St. Bernard High School, Hawthorne High School, and even Palisades High School, as well as Marymount, Notre Dame, and Loyola.

College Essay Help

November 8th, 2012

Study Hut Tutoring is happy to help and assist with every student’s college essay from start to finish.  College essays, or personal statements, are weighted heavily.  Students who have recently graduated from Mira Costa High School, El Segundo High School, Redondo Union High School, Palos Verdes High School, and Peninsula High school received acceptance letters into their top choices after receiving one-on-one college essay help from Study Hut Tutoring.


We are professionals in this department– not only having earned acceptance into top tiered universities around the country ourselves, but we are trained by current officers that sit on the Boards of Admissions at schools like UCLA.  All of our college essay specialists have had students who have successfully met their goals.  When student’s show up unannounced several weeks after their last session, with their acceptance letters in hand, it tells us we’ve done a good job executing.  The proof is in the pudding!

We know what universities are looking for, to say the least.  We know that admissions officers are incredibly busy around this time of year.  They are the gatekeepers to their prestigious universities.  They are responsible for admitting and denying  tens of thousands of applicants.  Many admissions officers read the essay first, and then decide if the rest of the application fits with that persons credentials.

The first step to writing a strong college essay is the discovery process.  We do this to avoid trite topics such as, “The reason I want to be a veterinarian is because when I was little my dog was hit by a car.”  As true as that may be, universities have seen that formula played out thousands of times.  We want to avoid, at all costs, an overdone essay.

Study Hut Tutoring would strongly recommend that a student spends 2 months perfecting the essay; whipping out a decent draft and having mom proof read it a week before the essay is due is probably not the best plan!

El Segundo – first impressions of the Hut

June 5th, 2012

When you are a student getting tutored, you want to be in a relaxed environment where you
can learn and have fun at the same time and the newly remodeled El Segundo Study Hut does just that.  Here at the Study Hut, we pride ourselves on creating a comfortable environment where students are happy to get tutored, though also be motivated to study and do well. Our Study Hut in El Segundo has numerous rooms, each that have a relaxed beach feeling to them, and we hope that students can feel that relaxed vibe when they enter the study Hut.

When I walked into the Study Hut today for the first time, my attitude completely changed when I walked inside. As I was driving here, I was distracted and had a lot on my mind, though once I got to the Study Hut in El Segundo I became very relaxed and focused. The Study Hut is very organized, and it is not busy or overcrowded. The colors definitely helped me feel focused, since the colors on the walls are not overwhelming or distracting.

From the surfboards and the wood floors, to the bamboo and calming pictures on the wall, the
Study Hut has a great balance to it. As you look around the Study Hut, you will realize that the walls are painted different shades of green, which balances well with the bamboo and the wood floors. This Study Hut in particular has a very homey feeling, seeing as how it’s actually a living complex, with a full bathroom and that’s why it has many different rooms.

This Study Hut is usually quiet, since not many students are here at the same time.


New El Segundo up and running!

May 3rd, 2012

The renovations at Study Hut Tutoring in El Segundo have been amazing. The Hut is completely transformed, and based on early polling, this is the coolest looking Hut ever! We have a full side yard, definitely big enough for the tutors’ end-of-the-year BBQ 😉

So what kind of renovations have we been doing? Everything from opening up a new lobby and expanded tutoring space in the back, to new plants, paintings, wallpaper, and more. This is going to mean more space for students and tutors to spread out, and will ultimately lead to a more intimate, productive tutoring environment.

Have you been to the best tutoring location in the South Bay? Do you need help with math tutoring, English tutoring, or perhaps another subject that has been plaguing you? Don’t let the difficult curriculum at ESHS or other local schools keep you from achieving your goals. Study Hut is hear to help!

Eagles flying back into action!

September 19th, 2011

El Segundo students finally have a Hut of their own to call home, and I am proud to report that we were correct: El Segundo does love Study Hut Tutoring. Our El Segundo tutors have been kicking butt and taking names, and as a result, our students from El Segundo High School and from El Segundo Middle School have been starting the year off strong.

So far, these students have been turning in all of their homework and performing well on tests and quizzes. Moms and dads are happier, and tension at home is at an all-time low. I know this for two reasons. First of all, our clients are calling and emailing us and telling us how much easier life has become since signing up at Study Hut. Secondly, I know this because El Segundo families are referring their friends here too.

We are more excited than ever to be servicing the El Segundo community. We grew up here, and we are quite familiar with the neighborhood and the schools. One of our owners actually lived in El Segundo for a bit while attending LMU, and he did tutoring home-to-home in the area as he worked his way through college.

If you have any questions at all about our services, or you want any specific information about the newest Study Hut in El Segundo (just a block from the Teen Center), please feel free to email sp@studyhut.com, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

–El Segundo Schools On the Rise!–

El Segundo schools are gaining prominence in the South Bay and and have seen a considerable amount of recent recognition, which is awesome! Both sports and academics are on the rise (Congratulations El Segundo Women’s Water Polo!) Study Hut tutors are happy to provide a place for El Segundo students to continue on the road of academic success and overall achievement. We already have a few El Segundo students in the Hut and are happy to see more El Segundo faces.

Our relaxed environment mixed with a heavy dose of scholastic energy and enthusiasm is working wonders for our Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach students and we are happy to extend our efforts and energy over to our El Segundo neighbors! Our tutors use their depth of knowledge of the area to reach the needs of each student at the Study Hut…. but never without some fun, of course!

If you are looking for help in that one troubling subject (Boo, Geometry), or need of an overall academic boost, we have Spanish Tutors, Math Tutors, Chemistry tutors, History Tutors, English Tutors (and more!) to provide a new outlook, and help keep our students on the right track. No need to feel like you are barely keeping your head above water in those pesky subjects when you can dominate them!

If you are an El Segundo student or parent looking for an El Segundo tutor, call the Hut or email Rob or Sean Patrick for more information. We would love to see you achieve the success you are looking for.

Chemistry, Geometry and Algebra 3-4

April 14th, 2008

Mira Costa High School students have the most trouble with chemistry, Geometry and Algebra. The best chemistry tutor is someone who can help you with material and explain it in a way you understand, but also, someone who has attended chemistry at Mira Costa in the last 6 years (so we’re ultra fresh and know exactly where you struggle most).

Study Hut Tutoring is a premier tutoring center unlike any other. Locally owned and operated, we grew up in the South Bay, graduated Mira Costa High School and have returned from college to help locals succeed in challenging classes. Giving the best service each hour is our number one objective. Read the rest of this entry »
