Banyan Tree is very different from tutoring or test prep facilities, although we offer support in these areas as well. We focus on how a student learns. We work on the skills needed to be an efficient and independent learner, while most tutoring focuses on academic content.
Tutoring may support students to help them get through a night’s homework or a particular class. But remediation eliminates the learning problem and teaches students to learn so they can learn anywhere, anytime, for a lifetime. Remediation addresses the underlying processing skills.
Here are some common symptoms, any of which may indicate that there are underlying processing skills not supporting the learner well enough:
Challenges can be overcome! With specialized training the brain can learn to think and process information in more effective ways. Children and adults do not have to continue to suffer the effects of learning problems, but it will take more than a traditional tutor.
List of Tools: We use a variety of tools to develop the right program for each individual. First, we complete an assessment to begin unlocking the learning puzzle, finding the skills that are underdeveloped, and then working with families to develop a learning plan.

Q: “Are you a tutoring center?”
A: We are a Learning Center, it’s a lot different.
At Banyan Tree Educational Services all our programs are teaching rather than provide tutoring. We focus on how a student learns. We work on the skills needed to be an efficient and independent learner, while most tutoring focuses on academic content. Banyan Tree is not a tutoring or test prep program, although we offer support in these areas when our students require them as a part of a long-term learning goal. Tutoring may support students to help them get through a night’s homework or a particular class but remediation addresses the underlying processing skills to eliminate the learning problem and teaches students how to learn so they can learn anywhere, anytime, for a lifetime.
Q: “Are you a school?”
A: We are a learning center providing educational therapy. If your child needs a full-time solution we do have a school as well called Compass Academy. Give us a call to find out more if you are a fit.
Q: “What makes you different?”
A: We address learning challenges head-on working with the student to find ways in which they can learn for a lifetime. Our specialties address specific challenges which often in a typical school setting the teachers do not have one-on-one time available. We have teachers, not tutors, who are trained in these programs and tools and work .
Q: “What is a Banyan tree? Why is it your logo?”
This amazing tree grows in regions where the soils is not able to support the heavy branches. The tree has learned to compensate for the weakness by growing support limbs as the tree branches out. Like the banyan tree, our goal is to provide support and strengthen foundations for learning as students mature into lifelong learners.
2017-2018 fees vary depending on the student’s needs, but we strive to offer affordable options for our families.
Banyan Tree Learning Center is conveniently located in Point Loma with an extension in Encinitas.
