Private tutoring that gets results

Our award winning model for 1:1 tutoring has supported student success for over 35+ years and we have the results to prove it.

We are offering several options for the 2022-2023 school year:



Help your child stay focused and on track with your school’s education program. One of our highly skilled tutors will work with your child remotely via zoom to help them stay organized and work on their current academic needs. Whether it’s homework, projects, or specific subject assistance, we can help.



You’ve made your choice to homeschool your child—-now back to basics can help. Our staff can guide you in executing your chosen curriculum by providing tutoring and skill-building support for your homeschooled student. Delaware high school students can also enroll in coursework at Back to Basics for original credit.



Since 1985, we’ve been helping students of all ages through our elite educational services. Our staff is committed to continuing our mission of excellence with 1-on-1 tutoring, building an individualized plan for the student’s needs, and working together as a team to meet safety guidelines. “Explore our services”.


Augustine Hills School’s mission is to educate students in a 1:1 atmosphere that provides individualized attention and offers an alternative to traditional school settings. We’ll explore online, in-person, or hybrid learning options to customize an individualized plan for your child to progress towards learning goals and success.  “Visit the AHS site to learn more”.
