Breaking down barriers to school success!

Academic Advocates

Academic Advocates was born as a result of our award-winning founder Lori Bitar’s relentless quest to support students and families in ways that made sense and made a difference! As a young teacher, Lori knew the value of relationships and the impact they had on student success in school. Her love of teaching and students drove her to craft lessons that were engaging, empowering, and FUN!

Lori always knew she was born to help students unleash the superpowers they already had inside: the students were the true SuperHEROES and she was their sidekick.

Listen as Lori explains why ACADEMIC ADVOCATES is the right choice for your child’s educational success!

Online Tutoring

Covid-19 has caused a SIGNIFICANT learning loss for children — a social, emotional and academic ordeal so extreme that some advocates and experts warn its repercussions could rival those of a hurricane or other disaster. We want to partner with you to combat the learning loss that’s happened due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our son got the best grades EVER working with Lori Bitar and her academic team. They were attentive, kind, and created customized learning plans to help my child succeed. Thank you for making learning exciting for him again.

Parent, 7th Grader

I was able to develop a lot of confidence in myself and my studying tools before going to college.  I had my first straight-A semester when we worked together and I’ve made Dean’s List twice since starting college. If it weren’t for Academic Advocates, I think I would have drowned under the pressure and failed to keep up.

Amy Peltzer

Student, 12th Grader

Because of Academic Advocates, my child was able to keep up at school. Otherwise, she would have been left behind. As a busy parent, my daughter’s academic success is important to me, but I don’t always have the time or tools I need to help her myself. Because of Lori, I had peace of mind knowing my daughter would be prepared for academic success!
