Bee Academic Tutoring in Whittier, CA
Bee Academic Tutoring proudly provides in-home and online tutoring services for Whittier, CA, amongst other southland cities in Los Angeles and Orange County. The community of Whittier began as a Quaker colony that invited “fair-minded people” to purchase lots of land in the 1880s, and today it spans nearly 15 square miles of land south of Los Angeles and boasts a population of over 86,000 residents. Whittier is home to myriad businesses and the community prides itself on safety, diversity, and quality of life. The city supports beautification through their Art in Public Places Ordinance, a program that allows business and residential developments to add works of art to their building projects. And both visitors and residents can appreciate the longevity of Whittier via the four historical residential districts the city features. Whittier was named for famed Quaker poet John Greenleaf Whittier. Although he never resided in his namesake town, he did write a poem about it: “My Name I Give to Thee”.
