Our Goal

At My Neighborhood Tutor, our goal is to provide high quality, affordable, and timely service.

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ High quality means that our tutors have the appropriate degree and experience in the subject they are tutoring–our math tutors have math or science degrees and our statistics tutors have a statistics degree.

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ Affordable means that we work with any budget.

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ Timely service means that we don’t keep students longer than needed; as soon as students reach their grade goal, whether it is an A, or passing, or anything in between, we encourage them to reduce or eliminate tutoring, and we transition them to using services at school or in the community.

    message for a fecht: checking to see if you get this, I have been stdiyung the web content etc., have some feedback: synthesize the course description material into a flatter, more integrated interface (eg, one page each for all grade levels/subject with an integrated presentation of the progression through levels 9-12). Links to specific course description pages could be active in this interface level, with existing individual course pages from the archives called up one by one as requested by the user. course descriptions could then be more concise and action oriented. just sayin

    My little sisetr just got a job like this. She did find it on Craigslist. She tutors (kids to grandparents) people from South Korea. She gets up every morning at 5am her time and logs on. She loves this job. Says it is the best she ever had. They are even thinking of flying her out to California to meet the South Koreans when they come in for the yearly awards ceremony.

    Great info and right to the point. I am not sure if this is in fact the best place to ask but do you folks have any ideea where to employ some porfessional writers? Thx

    • Nayan, I nearly always recommend that employers go to the websites of professional associations to find the professional they seek. I’m sure there are various writers associations out there. If I needed to hire a professional writer, that is where I’d start. Of course, if one is looking for an educator who writes well or a medical writer, then I’d also go to the associations for teachers and health professionals, respectively. Hope that helps!

    The sentences in this post don’t make sense; prbaobly because it was created by a non-human. In other words, do you want your child to be tutored by a real, caring, experienced teacher, or one who is just assigned by a company that sends out mechanical blog posts just to boost search engine rankings. You decide . . . and if you choose a real human who has a ton of knowledge and knows how to work successfully with children and adults in an online setting, visit my web site.

    • Hello Diego, I really appreciate your post. In my blog, I do (and will continue) to differentiate tutoring from teaching. Formally, tutor is defined here: http://www.dictionary.com/browse/tutoring. My favorite of the five definitions is “3. a teacher without institutional connection who assists students in preparing for examinations.” except that I would say “a person without institutional connection who assists students in learning”. It is important to note that a tutor can be just as experienced and caring as a teacher. A tutor’s choice for working outside of an academic institution has more to do, I suspect, with a tutor’s individualism, confidence, and entrepreneurial spirit.

      Because the tutor-student rapport is paramount in achieving academic success in after-school tutoring sessions, business owners who match tutors with incoming requests need to thoroughly assess students’ needs and goals. A tutor can have excellent knowledge, experience, and teaching skill, but if s/he intends to help a D student learn and the D student only wants answers (without explanations), then that match is not a good match.
