Welcome to On Track Learning

On Track Learning was founded in January, 2005. While a teacher in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District, Dan Harrington (OTL’s Founder and Owner) recognized an opportunity to further reach out and educate kids on a more effective and personalized level through 1 on 1 tutoring.

Initially, he would work with students in their homes after school. His reputation  as a quality teacher and business professional quickly spread through the San Ramon Valley community. Dan exhibits a personable attitude and instills a focused approach to teaching students. To accommodate his rapidly growing client list, Dan opened a small office and tutoring center in Alamo, CA. On Track Learning was then born! Today, OTL works in conjunction with highly skilled and qualified educators and focuses on providing its clientele with the same high quality and personalized service that Dan built his reputation on.
