Livius in Newton

Our roots in Newton are deep—it’s where we got our start over three decades ago. Currently, Newton serves as our largest center and headquarters for Livius, and we’re proud to have a strong presence in this community. Whether you’re looking for private tutoring, small-group sessions, or comprehensive prep classes, our time-tested programs are accessible, supportive, and results-driven.

At Livius Newton, our expert tutors have matriculated from some of New England’s top colleges and universities, and they understand the unique pressures and challenges students face as they complete high school and prepare for post-secondary degrees. Livius instructors take their role as student advocates and academic liaisons seriously, and we recognize that a key factor in successful tutoring includes the connections we foster with our students and families.

Our Tutors

Our programs and practices have been honed over more than 35 years to meet students’ evolving needs as the academic landscape continues to shift. And while exam content or admission criteria might change year to year, our focus on supporting students throughout their unique academic journeys never wavers. This includes not only how or what students study, but where they study, too. With this in mind, each Livius location has been designed as an inviting, safe, and focused learning environment.

Livius Programs

Our Newton center serves students from high schools across the community, including Newton North, Newton South, Newton Country Day, Fessenden, and Solomon Schechter, as well as students from surrounding schools in Needham, Brookline, and the greater Boston

What our clients are saying about the Livius experience

"Best tutoring service we've experienced in the Greater Boston area. Very responsive staff and excellent communication with parents regarding tutoring sessions, scheduling, planning. Excellent tutors and lots of flexibility. For us, they stepped into a difficult, time-constrained situation and made everything work."

Monica, Livius Tutoring Parent

"My daughter started working on ACT literally 3 weeks before the exam date. She was at score 30-33 level but she wanted to stay at a stable 35 level. Sandy was extremely helpful in just two weeks and made it happen. The two weeks of intensive training with Sandy were definitely worth the tuition we have paid. Thank you, Sandy!"

Renny, Livius ACT Parent

"They look at your child as an individual. Specifically tailoring a program and tutor to their needs. I like that they can see every kid/family is unique."

Jenn, Livius Tutoring Parent
