Groza Learning Center

Tutoring, Test Prep, HomeschoolBoutique learning center located in Pacific Palisades, CA, specializing in Tutoring, Test Prep, Reading and Homeschool. Our programs are available in-center, in-home, and online. We believe students can enjoy learning! It is our priority to uphold the highest academic standards while meeting each student’s individual needs. More than a decade of teaching experience has taught us that with tutoring, being a skilled practitioner isn’t enough. This is why we always maintain a genuine, caring commitment to each and every student in order to create sessions that are challenging, enjoyable, and successful. Many of our programs begin with diagnostic tests to identify weak areas and style of learning. This approach allows us to target our tutoring precisely to each students point of need, making each session as productive and efficient as possible. Groza's world-class learning facility is equipped with enclosed tutoring rooms, classrooms, testing rooms, and hand-crafted one-on-one “retreat” rooms. Our prized educational retreat embodies our philosophy that learning can be inspirational, engaging and fun. Students can sit back in our log cabin in front of our crackling fire, tutor in a meadow enjoying an expansive view, or sit in a boat, which is floating under a desk-bridge. Our one-on-one rooms are the perfect venue for focused studying for exams or standardized tests.

Q & A

What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?

I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was 19 years old. I opened my first Preschool/Infant Care for my daughter because I didn’t like the options that were available.

What does success mean to you?

Having a balanced life where you can spend time with your family, friends, yourself and when going to work enjoy every minute of what you do

Who inspires you?

I find inspiration in a variety of people and things. I would have to say that the person who has most greatly inspired me has been my grandmother. She always had a smile on her face no matter how hard she worked and she loved everyone. She was well respected and always gave more than she received. ​
