Academic & Learning Solutions,
Personalized, Intuitive Approach.

We believe when students feel empowered in their academic life they can fulfill their potential, which creates the foundation for a life filled with curiosity and success in whatever path they choose.

Since 2008, CBSB has successfully worked with families to make real and lasting change for students in Santa Barbara. Due to the Covid pandemic, all tutoring sessions will be conducted online.

Our Team
Anne Robinson, owner and Director of CBSB, has assessed and tutored students for over fifteen years. She has worked with a wide range of students from public, private and boarding schools. Her focus has always been to provide tools and insight that improve academic skills, empower learning and inspire curiosity and engagement with the world. She works closely with tutors, supporting them as teachers and helping them to address each student's needs. She has a B.A. in Comparative Literature from Brown University and attended Deerfield Academy.
The Collegebound team consists of a small group of teachers dedicated to helping students understand themselves better: their habits, their ability to focus, and how they can increase their ability to learn. Our tutors hone in on how a student is processing information, and how to break down the learning process into steps that the student can grasp and practice. We ask ourselves how best to work with each individual student, helping them to identify the skills that need improvement, and the techniques and tools that will be most effective. We believe that improved academic skills and confidence can help students throughout their lives, a small victory in math class can empower a student to take more risks in other classes, and ultimately, in life.
