About Downey, CA

Downey, CA is a city located in southeast Los Angeles County, California, United States, 13 mi southeast of downtown Los Angeles. It is considered part of the Gateway Cities. The city is the birthplace of the Apollo space program. It is also the home of the oldest still operational McDonald’s restaurant in the world. 

Downey’s earliest settlers (even before the Spanish arrived in Alta, California) were a Tongva ethnic group. Upon arriving, the Spanish started referring to the Tongva ethnic group as Gabrielino. The Tongva communities were approximately north and northeast of present-day Downey. 

By 1935, Downey was known as an “orange-grove town.” Along with the abundance of oranges, farmers in the area were growing grain, corn, castor beans and fruit. Downey was incorporated in 1956 and instituted its government in 1964. After World War II, suburban homes and factories began to replace all of Downey’s farms. From the 1960s to 2016, the population of Downey grew from 82,505 to 113,267.

Benefits of Hiring A Private Tutor For Your Downey Student

Whether your Downey student is thriving or struggling in school, hiring a private tutor can be a great additional resource and investment in their future. For students who are having a hard time with a particular subject, a tutor will work at an individual level to bring that student’s grade on par with, or above grade level. For more advanced students, a tutor can bring in a learning extension and further challenge the student to remain engaged. 

Did you know that advanced students are often bored in school and even develop behavioral problems as a result? Under-motivated students complain of boredom in class because they feel they already know what’s being taught. Many under-challenged students are sloppy in their work and don’t study much. They tend to zoom through their work without editing or rechecking because they just want to get it done. They need help getting motivated and interested in the work in order to thrive.

The many benefits of hiring a tutor in Downey include:

  • A tutor can help your child have goals and objectives
  • Private tutors will work at a specific pace
  • Private tutors give personal attention
  • They teach more than just the lesson plan
  • Private tutoring programs are flexible and convenient
  • Tutoring can motivate your child to take on more challenging skills and coursework
